A new player registration ‘E-Mail Capture’ tool within the online FA Whole Game System will drastically cut the volunteer time required of grassroots football volunteers.
Previously The FA were aware that it had been a very time-consuming process to register players with a linked parental record and E-Mail. As a result, they have now launched the new tool which allows clubs to safely upload parental E-Mails to multiple players.
Managers and secretaries are already welcoming quicker admin processes such as player contacts, qualifications, discipline records, and much more through the online FA Whole Game System, which is accessible via www.essexfa.com. The feature can be found in the left-hand menu after a user has logged into the portal and clicked on their club tab at the top of the screen.
Off-pitch football activities are becoming faster and more efficient, with players and parents also benefiting from the system which is being using to prepare for the eventual arrival of the 2020/21 season. Volunteers can access their team’s data all in one place, making club admin and the monitoring of player availability a simpler task.
