Different roles: coach, manager, athlete and parent


In Sportlyzer, there are four different roles - manager, trainer, athlete, and parent. Each of the roles has its own working space and can focus on what is most important to them. When you use the software, you can see your current role on the left side of the blue header.

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


Manager - the one who can take new athletes to the club, oversees the size of the group and attendance, as well as the general club calendar. All contact and profile information of all athletes and coaches is automatically synchronized and available for him/her. He/she can create invoices and track payments of all athletes in the club, as well as send reminders or take action if someone's payment is too late.

Coaches can access their workout calendar via the Internet (web app) or Coach Diary App on their phone and easily mark the attendance of their workouts. When they cannot attend their workout, they can delegate the workout, including the workout plan and attendance marking, to another coach. It is also possible to send a permanent, personalized link to athletes (or their parents), which they can use to mark whether they are going to the next training session or not. The trainer also has all the email addresses and telephone numbers of all his/ her athletes and their parents, which are always up-to-date, so they can 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 a possibility to update the player’s contact data for the club.
