Getting started as a player
This video details the 6 key steps that are listed in the article below to make sure that you can start using 360Player successfully.
1. Sign in for the first time
As a player you will need either a group code or email invite from your coach to complete the sign in process. If you don't know your team's group code or haven't received an invite, be sure to obtain this information first. If you received an email invite, follow the link in the email to get started.
If you are under the GDPR age of consent in your country, you'll need parental consent to join the app. During the sign in process you will enter in your parent's email for them to approve you. This article goes over the GDPR sign up process in more detail.
To sign in for the first time, navigate to app.360player.com (or download the app on mobile), then you can follow the steps or view this guide for more details on how to sign in. To download the app on mobile check out the links below.
2. Complete your personal details
Once you have created your account, it's time to complete your personal details. We highly recommend that every user who joins your team completes their personal settings and personal details just after signing up and then keeping them updated over time. To quickly access your personal details on mobile, press the 'more' button first, then press 'settings'.
3. Define development goals
360Player is a great place to set and track goals and progress as a player! Why don't you take responsibility for your development and set a goal for yourself? Press the Me button to come into your profile, then navigate to the development tab. You can add your first goal by pressing, 'add goal'.
Your coaches are able to see your goals, so let them know you've added a goal if you would like them to take a look! In addition to goal setting, you can also add performance reviews to reflect on how progress towards your goals are going. Here's a full article about how to write a performance review.
4. Upload your first video
Once you're done with goal setting, let's jump over to video. Watching yourself on video is a great to help you develop and improve. To upload a video, press the plus button (create button on desktop), then choose video. From here you can add a link from youtube and start analyzing video and tagging yourself in clips right away! Tag your coach in a clip and ask a question to start a valuable development discussion.
5. Communicate with your team
In 360Player you can easily communicate with your teammates and coaches with chats and wall posts. To start a new chat, press the chat button at the bottom of the screen on mobile. From here, select a teammate or coach and send them a message!
You can also see group communication on the team wall. Create a post of your own by pressing the plus button or comment on someone else's post.

6. Get your parent connected
In order for your parent to join 360Player, they will need to link their account to yours. Your parent can follow these steps for parents to get signed in. Once your parent has entered your email, you will get a notification and you will have to accept the connection request to confirm they are your parent or guardian.
