Here at FamilyID, we don’t need a groundhog to tell us when Spring is approaching.

We know Spring is in the air because so many of our schools and community organizations are opening their Spring Sports programs on FamilyID.

Getting a jump on collecting registrations for your upcoming Spring programs is a great idea. One Athletics Director even reported receiving 100% of his student-athlete registrations by the deadline, a week before tryouts! (oh, how that warms our hearts...)

Want the skinny on some best practices before setting up your Spring program on FamilyID? Read our tips below!

Join a live (and brief) webinar

Did you know our team hosts live webinars each week with morning, afternoon and evening sessions. Most sessions are only 20 minutes long. 


Learn about best practices, new features and all the best tricks to save you time, make you look like a hero, and make your whole registration process a breeze. For information on how to join a webinar, email or call 1-888-800-5583 ext. 3.
