Social media for coaches and activity sponsors

Otis Price sent me a great article on how to maximize a coach's use of social media.  I thought the best tips that were given had to do with WHAT you should post to your page.  If you recognize that your site is for your team's parents, relatives, and the community - and treat your information as breaking news - you will be successful.

The information a coach should post regularly on the team page includes:
  • Game and practice time reminders
  • Cancellations/postponements of practices and games
  • Score updates – several times per game!
  • News feeds from local papers
  • Honors and awards about your student-athletes or teams
Read the full article on the official site of the National Federation of State High School Associations.
