How to Track Attendance at my Gymnastics Club

With the right tools, monitoring attendance at your gymnastics club can be an effortless part of your day-to-day operations.

The first step is choosing the right system. It should be easy to use and allow staff to quickly update attendance status.

By implementing an online attendance tracking system, you can ensure that your lists are updated instantly and that any changes are immediately available to your entire staff.

Giving Gymnastics Coach Access to Attendance Lists

Role-Based Access

Set up role-based access to ensure that each employee sees only the information they need. For example, a gymnastics coach should only be able to see attendance records for her classes, while administrative staff may need broader access for tasks such as scheduling and reporting.

📌 Pro Tip: It’s crucial to restrict access so that staff members can only view information about parents and students in their own classes. Additionally, you can control who among the staff can communicate with parents and how they do so on behalf your gymnastics club.

Keep accurate attendance tracking

Design check-in and check-out processes to reduce errors. Activity Messenger enables quick corrections when a student is incorrectly marked as absent or present. This not only ensures accurate attendance tracking, but also helps monitor staff performance.

📌 Pro Tip: Many Gymnastics Clubs we work with closely monitor attendance. This is made easier by the “Today” tab in our system, which displays all students who attended a class at the club on a given day, eliminating the need to switch between multiple lists.

Add notes to the attendance list from your smartphone

Real-Time Updates for Attendance

The real-time note-taking feature allows you to instantly capture important events. This can range from behavioral observations and special achievements to brief follow-up reminders. Both teachers and administrators can add and view each other’s notes, ensuring that all class-related information is consolidated into easily accessible attendance lists.

Integration with Gymnast’s Profiles

Notes can be attached to each gymnast’s profile to create a detailed record. This comprehensive history is useful for discussions during parent-coach meetings or to create and adapt learning plans.

📌 Pro Tip: We decided to communicate important class details to our staff through notes in the class roster. This ensures that no information is missed, and staff receive updates right at class time, reducing the chance of forgetting. Examples include returning a lost gym bag or reminding parents about the start of registration for the next session.

How to send an SMS from the attendance list

Allowing your staff to send SMS to parents

The ability to send SMS messages directly from the attendance list is critical for emergencies or last minute schedule changes. It allows for quick communication with parents and gymnasts and is highly effective for urgent updates.
