Family, players, and fans are able to search the GameChanger database for existing teams to join! They can request access to a team through this feature, and once their request has been approved, the team will be added to their account. Team Staff will not be able to request membership through the search and will instead need to be added by the current Team Staff.
Requesting Membership (Family/Players/Fans)
- Tap the search icon in the top left of the Teams tab in the app
- Begin typing your team’s name. You can use the "Sport", "Season" and "Location" filters to narrow your search
