MINNEAPOLIS, MINN / January 9, 2019 — SportsEngine, Inc., an NBC Sports Group company, and the leading provider of sport relationship management technology, announces the launch of SportsEngine HQ, an expansion to the SportsEngine software platform which now provides free access to tech tools for youth sports organizations along with an enhanced experience and a suite of premium tools for club and league administrators.
SportsEngine HQ is designed to help youth sports organizations grow by providing them with easy ways to raise money, promote their programs, build an apparel store, and manage payments from parents, at no cost. Consumers can take advantage of these tools and benefits by creating a free account with SportsEngine and verifying their organization’s information.
Clubs, leagues, and associations can also upgrade to collect sign-ups, process registrations, unlock full team management through the mobile app, set up and administer leagues, publish their website, manage their coaches and volunteers background screening and safety program, and more.
SportsEngine HQ combines a completely transformed user experience to improve the way clubs, leagues and associations connect with their members and run their programs with the power of the SportsEngine platform to enable administrators in different roles to truly work as a team. Once club and league directors assemble and roster their teams, treasurers can utilize those rosters to quickly send bills for team activities. League schedulers can push updates to parents via the mobile app, and registrars can get real-time data on sign-ups to report back to the league board producing a unified experience.
Building off a decade of experience, SportsEngine HQ is the next-generation sport relationship management software for youth sports organizations integrating popular features like smart groups, rosters, payments, athlete accounts and profiles, and messaging across multiple tools that is unmatched by any other sports management software system available.
Chris Mineo, team administrator and webmaster for High Tide Volleyball Club based in Stuart, Florida was one of the first customers using SportsEngine HQ.
“There’s no guessing where to find things,” stated Mineo. “It’s a seamless experience that puts everything we need to run our club right at our fingertips.”
Mineo, who also manages High Tide’s robust website that includes detailed information on everything from recruiting to private lessons to the club’s eight teams, said he’s had success shifting communication from texts and emails to more messaging through the mobile app between parents, coaches, athletes and administrators.
“We are getting them to realize they can do a lot of that communication through the mobile app,” stated Mineo. “We have pushed that app like crazy and it’s received a great response from the people who are using it.”
“Now parents and volunteers can easily move between multiple organizations and teams they may be a part of, without having to manage multiple applications, or look for multiple subscriptions,” stated Jim Dahline, SportsEngine’s Director of Product Marketing. “With SportsEngine HQ, we are defining Sport Relationship Management, and introducing the world to what true member, program, and financial management is for multi-layered organizations.”
