Meet our Newest Team Member, Matt Langlois

by


2016_0107_132818_003_resizedI am pleased to introduce myself as one of the newest members to the team. With a diverse background that includes the management of a small business, backpacking around the world, and a recent appointment as communications director at a national charity, I will bring a strong sense of efficiency and forward movement to teampages.

I have spent a lot of my time helping youths to develop into successful adults with a sense of belonging. I believe that physical health and sports can help immensely for people of all ages grow and fulfil the sense of companionship necessary to enjoy life. I couldn’t be more excited to join this team, and look forward to interacting with members of the TeamPages community.

5 Questions

1. What is your role at teampages and what will you be doing?
I will be part of the sales development team, focusing on all functions related to initial contact and educating customers about what we offer.

2. What are you most excited about with your new position at teampages?
I am thrilled to be working with such an enthusiastic, passionate team on a product I strongly believe in.

3. What do you like to do in your spare time?
If I can steer clear of the grips of an addicting Netflix series, I enjoy finding creative ways to stay active, attending sporting events and planning future travel experiences.

4. What is your favourite sports quote?
“We’re going to turn this team around 360 degrees” -Jason Kidd

5. You recently moved to Vancouver, what are you looking forward to the most?
I am looking forward to exploring the nearby hiking and nature areas that Vancouver has to offer. I have only heard stories of these places, it’s time to go and check them out!

Spring Season Training Ideas

by


One of the challenges of coaching during the Spring season is the fact that with many of the players, you have been together all year long. The Fall went by quickly, and we had to endure all of the rain and increasingly cold weather. Then, it seemed as if we were indoors forever! Now, the players are getting used to playing on “bumpy” fields again!

As a coach, we need to be able to “jump start” the season, and keep things fresh so that the players don’t get burned-out and lose interest in what they are doing.

Towards that end, I have included below some training ideas that will help keep things moving along. They are appropriate for any age level. The common theme is that these ideas challenge the players, often times asking them to compete or solve problems. Thus, their interest is hopefully grabbed and training becomes productive.

Ladder Tournaments:

1v1 Ladder TournamentA simple but effective way to make any session competitive is to allow for a mini-tournament during training. I have found this to be most successful when playing small sided games (1vs1 -> 4vs4). The idea here is to play as many games as possible during the practice time. Line the mini-fields up along the side-line. When a team wins a game… they “move up the ladder”. When they lose… they move down. This way, each player/team is trying to get up to the top of the ladder, and ultimately be the champion. Playing in small sided games also has the benefit of providing repetitions for the player’s technique, it does not allow a player to hide. Keep the games short (45 seconds – 1 minute for 1v1 games… 5 minutes for 4v4 games). The coaches role is to organize the players, making sure that they play in the right game and move the right “direction” between games. The coach also encourages players and facilitates each player trying to come up with their own solutions to the game. Read more

Classic Theme is Being Discontinued

by


TeamPages Websites

Eight years ago, we built TeamPages for use on desktop computers and a lot has changed since then. Now, almost half of TeamPages users are accessing TeamPages websites from mobile devices.

We have created 7 new, mobile responsive website themes to choose from. That means they re-size to fit perfectly on tablets and mobile phones. The new themes offer a modern design and improved website structure.

If you are using TeamPages Classic, your current website theme is being discontinued.  Switch to a new theme now to give your website a fresh, new look.  All themes are 100% free!  

Check out this video to see what changes we have made with the new look and feel.

Why Change to a New Theme?

– All new themes are mobile responsive – they look great on tablets and phones
– All new themes have improved website structure and design, making TeamPages easier for you and your members to use
– All new themes have increased customization opportunities, so you can create a unique looking site
– All new themes are 100% free!

You can choose one of our new themes in your website settings area. If you are currently using the Classic theme, you can change to Classic 2.0 for minimal visual change to the website.   All TeamPages websites using the old Classic theme after April 31st, 2016 will be automatically moved to our mobile-friendly version, Classic 2.0.
