Youth sports leagues are a part of the fabric of a vibrant community. Families meet each other and share afternoon’s on the ball field cheering on their kids, while teenagers and young college students serve as officials or helping to maintain the fields. Local business owners sponsor teams and hang plaques on their walls proudly displaying photos at their stores.
Using league management software makes it easier for the entire community to keep up with the latest information on signups and game results for their favorite teams.
Gone are the days when parents had to stand in line with their kids, eating up entire mornings or afternoons just to fill out paperwork and pay for little league registration. Instead of having to recruit volunteers to handle in person registration days, you can have a completely customized online registration process setup in League Toolbox. Absolutely every bit of information your league needs to get your season started can be gathered online.
- Pay registration fees via c/c or Paypal
- Issue refunds
- Offer multi player or early bird discounts
- Accept donations
- Create custom forms to gather uniform sizes & medical information
- Waiver agreements
- Applications for coaches and officials
Once teams are formed, each one can have their own site. Email blasts keep families up to date on the latest news for practices and games, but all that information can also be found on the team site.
- Games schedules and results
- Game summaries with player statistics
- Standings and results across the entire league
- Updates for rainouts or field location changes
- Photo galleries
- Sponsor logos and links
Friends and family who cannot go to every game can check in to the site to see the latest results. Link to the site on Facebook to share updates with out of town family. Mobile apps allow for easy viewing of sites with smartphones and tablets.
A great way to raise money for the league and allow fans to show off their team colors is to make a league apparel store available. Parents, players and sponsors love showing off their team allegiance. Rather than having someone stock inventory in their garage to cart out to the field every weekend, just put the entire store online so that people can order whenever they want and the items will be custom made and shipped right to them. Upload team or league logos for use on hats, sweatshirts, t-shirts and shorts.
