GroupMe team chat examples


Wouldn't it be nice to communicate quickly with your team AND see who's coming to games?


GroupMe is a great option! It's our most popular tool among Captains for team chat and game RSVPs, and our personal favorite.


To start a group:


  1. Download the GroupMe app
  2. Click the pencil icon in the top right and "Start Group"
  3. Name your group and start adding teammates as members

Start typing teammates' names to see if they're already on the app, otherwise use their phone number or email to add them. 


In addition to chatting and posting updates for games, many teams use GroupMe to share standings screenshots (, coordinate get togethers, or @ tag specific players with questions or post-game accolades. 


Game events might be the most useful feature! Creating an event asks everyone to click "Yes" or "No" whether they're attending the next game.


To create an event for your next game:


  1. Click the + icon in the chat bar
  2. Click the calendar icon and "Create New Event"
  3. Fill in all the game details (hint: add a reminder at the bottom so players get automatically notified an hour or two or a day before game time)

As teammates start clicking yes or no, you'll see a list of "Going", "Not Going" and "Pending" so you can follow-up as necessary.


Here are screenshots showing the calendar icon for creating a new calendar event, and what a soccer team GroupMe looks like:
