GroupSpot preserves your results, full schedule, and upcoming competitions. It’s just as easy to schedule a rehearsal for Friday night’s football game as it is to schedule next month's state marching band competition. Make note of your competition window, performance time and arrival times in one post. Create signups when you need parent volunteers, forms for student registration and push notifications, in-app alerts or email for mass communications.
Whether you’re looking up a band member or trying to connect with their parents, Rosters are a great resource for any team. They are especially helpful with marching bands who don’t have numbers but instead rely on roster attributes like instrument and class. Choose what you want displayed on your roster cards, including any custom fields.
GroupSpot gives you the option to post as the voice of the marching band or yourself. For example, competitions and rehearsals make sense coming from the group whereas commenting on a post is more appropriate coming from you the individual.
Subgroups allow admins to parse communications into smaller groups within the larger group. This is especially effective when a marching band has so many moving parts. Your posts and notifications can be tailored and sent to the full group or just a subgroup.
In much the same way subgroups make group communication more efficient, sister groups do so on a larger scale. If you want to connect with another marching band or other like group like your band boosters organization, now you can. Individual posts in one group can be cross-posted to these like groups at the same time. This is especially helpful with cross-promotions like big ticket event fundraisers, competitions and securing volunteers.
GroupSpot gives marching bands the ability to turn a standard photo post into a shared photo album so that all members can contribute to and download from a centrally located album. This is an especially engaging feature around performances, team trips, or any other shared experience.
As a bonus for signing up, GroupSpot is donating $250 to the first 50 marching bands who join with a minimum of 100 members. We’re confident you will hit your mark once you add your students, parents, alumni and staff!
