Below are videos from the spring 2012 administrative meeting for coaches in the Recreation program. Most of your questions about how to run your Rec team will be answered in the videos below. If you still can't find the answers you're looking for, feel free to call the office (336-6512) or e-mail.

Part 1: A coach's guide to BonziTeam

Contains info about:

    • Logging in to TeamStream (since renamed BonziTeam).
    • Printing rosters and medical releases.
    • Communicating with your team through TeamStream.
    • (NOTE: Since the time this video was recorded in March 2012, there have been three changes made to TeamStrem: 1) You can now get to your TeamStreams when you log in to your Bonzi member account. You can still do it the way it's described in the video, but you can also get there by clicking the "Member Log-in" button; 2) The Announcements and e-mail tab in TeamStream has been redesigned so the text messaging function and e-mail function are two different things; 3) The question toward the end about replying to e-mail has been resolved: families can reply to e-mail sent by the coach in the normal way.)
