We designed and developed the TNT Field hockey website with the understanding that it would be used to promote the club and to manage its numerous teams. We intended the site to visually dramatic while offering a host of features to make management and communication quick and easy. Features include team specific notifications, rosters, calendar, etc. Players maintain their own extensive profiles which are made securely available to recruiting coaches. The website also offers a comprehensive event management tool allowing players to register and pay for individual events. Team coaches can view event reports, and quickly email reminders to registered groups. Team fees, tryouts and events all include payment processing through Paypal.

The homepage design captures the energy and excitement of the sport of field hockey. TNT is a highly competitive club that competes on a national level. The club's purpose is to promote the sport and offer players an opportunity to showcase their skills to college scouts at various tournaments. The site is organized by its teams which are highlighted by the large oval navigation buttons. The homepage includes reminders, news, upcoming events, and most importantly player recognitions.
Responsive and Device Optimized
The majority of site visitors are players and their families. Making the content responsive and device optimized was vital for visitors browsing the site using phones and and tablets.
Players who are logged in can register and pay for individual tournament events. The club managers can review individual event player rosters, see who has paid and who is outstanding, and send targeted emails to event registrants.
Player Profile Handouts
Club managers are able to provide recruiter coaches attending tournaments with printouts of player profiles. The printouts include player photos, and contact information. The printouts serve as a quick reference guide of who they are watching.
Player Profile — Recruiter View
Player accounts are created when PayPal receives payment for club membership. The accounts are then managed by the individual players/family. The site administrators are able to modify profile if necessary. Players are encouraged to keep the profiles accurate as they are often seen by visiting recruiters. Recruiters can login and view the player profiles and contact information.
The team pages are the heart of the site. Each team page includes a calendar, roster, coach info, news, photo gallery and videos.
