Different roles: coach, manager, athlete and parent

We have four different roles in Sportlyzer - Manager, Coach, Athlete and Parent. Each of the roles has their own workspace and can focus on what’s most important for them. When you use the Software you can see your current role at the blue header on the left.

In the following sections we will explain the different functions of each role separately.


The manager is the one, who can accept new athletes to the club, observes group sizes and attendance as well as the overall club calendar. All contact and profile information of all athletes and coaches is automatically synced and accessible for him/her. He/she can create invoices and track payments of all the athletes in the club as well as send reminders or take action, when somebody's payment is too late.

Coaches can access their training calendar via web or mobile and easily mark attendance for their training sessions. When they cannot attend their workout, they can delegate the workout including training plan and attendance marking to the next coach. There is also the option to send the athletes (or their parents) a permanent personalized link that they can use to mark if they are coming to next trainings or not. The coach also has all e-mail addresses and phone numbers of all his/hers athletes and their parents always up-to-date, so he/she is able to contact them at any time.

Athletes can access their training schedules, let the coach know if they will be coming to a training session or competition, view their attendance history and coaches' contacts, and edit their own contact and profile information.

There is another layer for advanced athletes, who need to log, plan and analyze their training themselves.

Parents can only access information related to their children. The mobile Parent App includes: training calendar, RSVP-ing (letting the coach know if the player is coming to a workout/game or not), participation logs, coach’s contacts, and possibility to update the player’s contact data for the club.
