The Javelin App is your all-in-one SUPER APP for playing sports! With Javelin, you can connect with players in your local area, create & join teams, find local pickup games, and book places to play with your friends!
While all of that is super cool, using the app for all it's features can be a bit daunting, but that's why we're here to help! In this guide, we'll talk about how YOU can benefit from using these features in our app and how to use them as well!
Booking games is easy with Javelin. With just a few clicks, you can book your spot at nearby pickup games with ease.
Simply click on the "Book" section on the bottom menu bar and select "Games" at the top for pickup games or "Rentals" for court bookings.
Once you click on a game or facility, you'll be able to see which dates and times the games are running at. You can then book for yourself or for multiple people, however you can only book 6 days in advance.
Each of these pickup games also have subgroups where you can chat with the people going! Scroll up to find more information about these subgroups.
Javelin has an extensive list of pickup groups for almost every sport! Fan-favorites include volleyball, basketball, & badminton.
In these pickup groups, you can chat with the community, join pickup games, or find new friends to play sports with!
You can join these pickup groups by clicking on the "Pick-Up" section at the bottom menu bar and clicking on any of the pickup groups you'd like to join.
The red dot next to the pickup groups means there are new messages in the group, so check them out if you're interested! The notification bell on the right can be pressed to mute the notifications of the group.
Once you mute them, you can find these groups at the very bottom of the list.
Once you join your first pickup group, you'll be greeted by a forum where you can create threads to ask questions, look for pickup games, advertise your pickup games, & interact with the community!
These threads make it easy to keep track of your conversations, search for questions that may have already been answered, & can help with recruiting people to your team!
To create a post, just click on the "Create a post..." textbox at the bottom and type away! Other players can interact with your post by liking, commenting, or sharing your post.
Within our huge pickup groups are subgroups in multiple locations, each with their own pickup game for you to join!
You can find these subgroups by joining one of the pickup groups and clicking the "View Weekly Games" button at the top.
Within these subgroups, you can chat with players attending the pickup games, ask questions about the pickup, and meet new people to play with!
In Javelin, you can create a team, which is your private group chat for everyone you invite to your team!
Benefits of creating a team in Javelin include:
To create or join a team, you click on the "Teams" section on the bottom menu bar, and then click on "Join a Team" or "Create a Team" at the top.
You can invite others to your team by sending them your team code!
Javelin removes the hassle of needing to book your spot every week with the subscription feature!
By subscribing to a weekly game, you can secure your spots earlier than 6 days prior to the event.
To subscribe, click on a game that you're interested in. Then, click the green "Subscribe to this weekly game!" button at the bottom. You aren't charged until the day of the game, so if you need to cancel, you can do so up to 2 hours prior to the game!
