The start of something extraordinary


Following the successful release of the Mytogs app for our swimming community in June this year, Swimming NZ and Pushstack are excited to launch My Squads. My Squads has been designed as a tool for simple club management, and to assist club coaches with managing and communicating with each of their squads.
My Squads is an extension of the Mytogs app, with coaches able to monitor the results of swimmers from their squad and set goals, plus send out communications to squad members directly to their Mytogs app. Other key features include coaches being able to mark attendance at training sessions and provide a 7-day training schedule that is available on their squad members’ Mytogs app.

Swimming New Zealand CEO, Steve Johns says “We are incredibly excited to continue working with Pushstack to develop innovative IT solutions for our members. Mytogs is already proving to be very popular, and we are confident that My Squads will be another great tool for coaches and clubs to use to improve their interaction and communication with their members."

Pushstack’s Sam Chan is excited about the My Squads release too since receiving positive feedback about the Mytogs app from coaches around the country. Sam says “We are very proud of the progress we've made so far! I trust My Squads would allow coaches to invest more of their time on the swimmers by reducing administrative activities and enhancing engagements with swimmers and/or their parents by using a shared platform where the swimmer's attendance, progress and goals are tracked.”

A few coaches from around the country have had the chance to trial the My Squads development. Ryan Lockwood (coach from Phoenix Aquatics) says “over the course of lockdown we have been using My Squads as a means of communication and a record of attendance for our zoom calls. Communication is a massive part of the work we do and My Squads makes it easy to do. We appreciate their attention to detail and ongoing adjustments to give us coaches what we need.”

"My Squads is a helpful on deck coaching tool that enables you to communicate directly with groups or individual swimmers, sharing and recording your workouts, and setting individual goals has never been easier" 

Graham Smith – Head Coach at St Paul’s Swimming Club

"My Squads ever-growing library of tools has aided our club in recapturing our swimmers’ engagement in the return from lockdown. The attendance tracking, percentile graphs, & goal time setting have all been a part of this, whilst also allowing us to bring the traditionally paper-bound exercise of goal setting to a medium more native & accessible to this generation of swimmers."

My Squads is available to all swimming clubs in New Zealand, with pricing structured based upon the number of coaches the club has. For clubs with 1 – 3 coaches the annual price is $199 + GST, and for clubs with 4 – 6 coaches the annual price is $299 + GST.

Swimming New Zealand invites you to learn more about My Squads when they host a webinar on Wednesday 3 November at 8pm NZDT. This webinar will be recorded for those who can’t attend.
