We're excited to announce the release of Organizations which is now in Open Beta for all Coaches and Organization Administrators. This Beta release is intended to gather feedback from our Coaches/Staff, League and Tournament Organizers, and Travel Teams You can create an Organization in GameChanger in order to keep track of all teams within the same league. There can be anywhere from 2-100 teams inside of one Organization.
Creating an Organization
1. Tap the Create Team Button.
2. Select Create an Organization.
3. Select either League, Travel Organization, or Tournament.
Once you have begun the creation of your Organization you will:
- Designate the Organization as a League, Travel Organization, or Tournament.
- Select Baseball, Softball or Basketball ... (More Sports - Coming Soon!).
- Enter the Organization's Location.
- Give your Organization a Name.
- Select a Governing Body (Little League, USSSA, etc) or Skip For Now.
- Select the Season of Play for your Organization (Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall).
NOTE: Each Organization is a standalone collection of teams. If you would like to accommodate for "Divisions" in your League (i.e. Minors, Majors, 12U, 14U, etc) then we suggest you create separate Organizations for each (i.e. Sample League 12U, Sample League 14U, etc).
Within a few seconds, you should see your Organization displayed on your Home/Teams Screen.
Inviting Teams to an Organization
1. Select your Organization and go to the Teams section.
2. Select Invite Team to Join.
3. You'll have two options for inviting teams: Share Invite Link or Search and Invite Teams. If you choose Share Invite Link, you can send the link along with a custom message via your preferred application (email, text, WhatsApp, etc). If you choose Search and Invite Teams, you can type in the name of the team you want to add. You will be able to filter the search by Location and Season. In both cases, the team will need to accept the invitation before they will appear in the Organization.
Accepting an Invite to an Organization as a Coach/Team Staff

What You Can Do With Organizations
Schedule - Admins are able to schedule Head-to-Head games between teams within the Organization. Tapping each game will navigate you to the game's screen, with details about the match.
Standings - This will display the Wins/Losses/Ties for those teams that have joined. After the completion of each Head-to-Head game, the Standings will update. Only games scored Head-to-Head will be reflected in the Standings. Tapping each Team's name will navigate you to that Team's primary screen in the app.
Add Admins - To add more Admins: select your Organization, go to Settings, and select League Admins. From there, you can invite additional Admins who will be able to schedule and score games. They will also be able to view all of the Organization's info.
Pitch Counts (Baseball/Softball Only) - As an Organization Admin, the arm health of your young players is of vital importance. From this screen, you may download a Pitch Count Report for the last 5 days of games and ensure that Coaches are complying with League/Organization mandates for pitch counts and for player safety.
