Features

Messaging & Scheduling

Messaging: Unlimited Text, Email & App

Blast Messaging not only makes communication simple, but also enables teams to limit the amount of times phones buzz. Group texts can be annoying, so Blast has an effective messaging solution that will limit the volume but always get your messages out.

Admins can:
  • Message the entire team, custom groups or individuals
  • Attach forms, files and pictures
  • Disable replies
  • Create polls
  • Require confirmations
  • Forward messages from Team Members

Team Members Can:
  • Message admins only
  • Leave a conversation, but receive the next message
  • Reply to messages (when enabled by sender)
  • Confirm receipt
Messaging: Safe Text Messaging (HS)

Many states have banned high school coaches from texting students with their personal phone numbers. Blast Messaging uses Blast’s phone numbers and every message is stored at the school level, even if deleted by the sender. Stay compliant with your states legislature by using Blast’s robust messaging feature.

Protect your students, protect your school, protect your coaches.

Messaging: Between High School Levels

Group messaging that puts all levels together causes message overload. Blast enables high school programs to message only who needs the information. Teams admins can message all levels at once, or select teams, individuals or groups within different levels from the same screen. Only the team members that you choose will get the message, leaving the rest of the program in peace.

Scheduling: One Central Calendar

Enter your schedule on Blast and it will update your entire team automatically. Reschedule a game, practice or event, Blast will notify your team.

  • Syncs with iCalendar
  • Each game, practice and event has it's own page for posting videos, photos, scores, recaps and more.
  • Turn by turn directions
  • Set availability
  • Automatic email reminders sent
  • Create games, events, practices for multiple HS levels at once

Fundraising & Payment Management

Fundraising & Collecting Dues: Together

By combining fundraising and payment processing together on Blast, teams can provide financial flexibility to their parents. Here’s how it works: request your dues or fair share on Blast. Parents have the option to pay the invoice, or fundraise on Blast to lower their costs, then pay the balance. Each team member is tracked individually and the money goes to the program, so teams can now offer parents financial flexibility with very little extra effort. The fundraiser is open all year, so if money is tight down the road, parents can enter contacts and raise money when they need it.

Fundraising: Make it Fun for Donors

Blast is the first fundraiser to consider what the friends and family that donate actually want. They participate in fundraisers because they care about the person asking, not because they want the product you are selling. So instead of losing big margins on a gimmick product, give them coverage and keep more money! When you post coverage to your Blast team site, Blast automatically packages it up and emails it to your donors every Tuesday.

Trust the compliments we get from teams that do it right. Grandma’s everywhere will love your decision to use Blast.

Fundraising: All Online = COVID Safe

Fundraising is going to change drastically due to Covid. Blast is the perfect solution for fundraising during these times. Not only does is Blast’s fundraiser all online, meaning no putting your team at risk, but it also sends updates to supporters who cannot attend the games. Grandparents are the most vulnerable to COVID-19, so going to games will be dangerous. Blast makes it easy to share coverage with every grandparent that donates, keeping them involved while locked down.

Manage Payments: Collect & Track

Blast Teams makes it easy to collect and track payments from your team members. Payments collected or entered into the system automatically update the team’s numbers and each user’s, keeping everyone up to date.

  • Send payment requests
  • Accept credit card & bank payments
  • Add manual payments (cash & checks)
  • Receipts sent automatically
  • Tracks per payment request & person
  • Issue scholarships & discounts
Manage Payments: Simple as 1 Click

From your home screen, team members can make a payment simply by clicking the Post button. Admins can request a payment and access team finances from that same Post button. If an admin receives a cash or a check at the field, they can instantly send a receipt and update the team and team members records from their phone.

No more carrying a receipt book or finger pointing over accountability.

Coverage & Showcases

Coverage: Social Media Style

Your Blast team app and website is built just like a social network, making it simple for your team members to post videos, photos, scores, stats, recaps and more. Just point, shoot, upload and tag! When you tag someone, that content will be saved to their Blast profile.

If you are not at the game or event, you can follow along by viewing what other team members are posting.

Upload videos directly, or post Hudl, YouTube and Vimeo videos.

Coverage: Keep Your Donors Updated

The coverage that your team posts will automatically be emailed to the family and friends who donated every Tuesday. There is no easier way to keep your loved ones up to date no matter how far away they are.

Blast will filter by tags, so the donors will see the coverage that the person that they donated for at the top of their update. Make sure to tag just the people that are in the coverage.

Showcases: Organize Your Coverage

Content is king in today’s world. Everyone has a phone with a video camera and the ability to create and share amazing coverage. However, athletes need to be able to organize their coverage to use it to promote themselves to colleges and club teams. Blast Showcases are designed to enable athletes to organize coverage over time to build a thorough analysis of skills and progress.
