iCrew is full of features, all specifically designed for rowing teams. Coaches and athletes each have their own home page designed to offer the functionality key to their role on the team. Mobile apps are also available in both the Apple and Android app stores.
We began using iCrew at the start of 2017 Winter season and haven't looked back. We had our processes pretty dialed in with various spreadsheets, but iCrew allows us to bring everything we were tracking separately into one unified platform - rosters, attendance, lineups, inventory, repairs reporting, forms & payments, volunteer hours, test results, etc. If you're tracking something as part of running a rowing organization, it's probably in iCrew! And one of the best things about iCrew is the developer, Kevin. He is incredibly responsive when I've contacted him with questions, the occasional bug, and suggestions for new functionality, and often responds within minutes, helping with whatever I've thrown at him. Where else can you find that level of support on a computer application?
iCrew is for everyone - staff, coaches, rowers, even parents (no more emails asking if they're current on payments, volunteer hours, forms - it's all right there with easy access and full transparency). iCrew has simplified just about everything we do to run our boathouse, allowing us to focus on the most important things - our athletes and rowing well.Kathryn Evans - Administrator, Lake Oswego Community Rowing
Following a complete overhaul and reorganization at the club I was looking for ways to communicate and to easily schedule participants' attendance at practice sessions. Our existing software platform which was great for tracking practice data was not rowing-specific, so I contacted Kevin to learn about iCrew. I participated in one of his online training sessions and was immediately impressed with the functionality of iCrew; I could see several ways that it could help me manage the operations of our rowing club. We trialed the system and within a couple of weeks, signed up.
Kevin is very supportive and responsive. He answers all my questions, often within minutes, and he has added, or made available, many additional features and tweaks that we have requested.
After a couple of months with iCrew we are using it to schedule practice sessions, allocate the appropriate (size, skill-level, etc.) equipment that is shared by all our user groups (elites, masters and juniors). We use the email and text features to communicate with our members and we track the attendance of our high school students. The equipment damage report, with its email alerts feature, helps us keep on top of damage or rigging issues and the ability for the coaches of our different groups to see which boats are available helps keep our boathouse efficient and harmonious.
iCrew is well on its way to becoming a complete one-stop rowing club management system that I have no hesitation recommending to all program directors.Ian Simpson - Director, Newport Sea Base Rowing
Out here in the high desert of Boulder, Colorado, well off the beaten path of rowing establishments, we have to get creative on how we communicate with one another, given an absence of facilities, electricity, etc. Mercifully, Kevin Goyena and iCrew have come to the rescue and provided us with an easy to use, reliable platform with which to overcome our communications issues. We truly live by the "Go to iCrew" mantra for all sources of club related information.
All that said, the "X-factor" with iCrew is Kevin's timely, helpful, and patient guidance on how to successfully implement the ever-expanding features. It's safe to say that here in Boulder, we are both passionate and grateful for iCrew and Kevin.Veronika Platzer - Head Coach, Boulder Community Rowing, High Performance Coach, Colorado Junior Crew
After testing out the iCrew software in June of 2019, our board decided to do a partial implementation of iCrew for our Winter Training activities from December through February. We would use it as a proving ground for our Masters, Middle & High Schoolers to make sure that they understood how to use it and to help them become early adopters of the platform to help others once we rolled into our Spring rowing season.
With two of our members spearheading the up-front work to get our club online by Jan 1, we were able to bring our Masters folks on board Jan 1 to renew their yearly memberships, and our Middle and High Schoolers on board starting mid-February to register for their Spring season.
I have worked on many software platforms and have assisted co-workers and friends when they needed help with their projects, but I have implemented exactly zero "from scratch" software projects with anyone. Kevin's accessibility as a customer service agent and excellent chief software developer at the same time has made the transition to iCrew very easy. The software is easy to use and the tutorials help when implementing a module for the first time. Our coaches like the functionality and the data that comes from its use.
We are hoping that this Summer we will have full activity on the platform following our social distancing and non-rowing Spring 2020 season. I am looking forward to seeing the power of the data that we get from a full season of rowing. I am sure it will not disappoint.Alan Hochman - Communications Director, Williamsburg Boat Club
iCrew is helping bring our organization together. The powerful application helps our athletes, coaches and administrators be more efficient with their time, preparation and communication. We appreciate Kevin's work in expanding the application based on user feedback. It has replaced multiple platforms that were being used in our boathouse.Padraic Harrington - Director, Pocock Rowing Center
iCrew has enabled our part-time adult rowing coaches, particularly those new to the program, to quickly assemble practice lineups and implement a fair coxswain rotation system - all while providing a clean user interface for our participants. Other features we love about iCrew:Nick Fradkin - Masters Rowing Coordinator, Green Lake Adult Crew
Detailed, rowing-centric participant profile (including cox-only designation)
Ability to assign participants and coaches to teams
Session check-in functionality
'My Dates Away' feature (bulk session opt-out)
Individual race count for regattas
We know that there are more features to discover in iCrew, and we're confident that they will help us take our program to the next level.
