Online Sports Registration for All
Every season, sports organizations, leagues, camps and clubs face the repetitive challenge of registering hundreds or even thousands players or participants in their various sports programs. Depending on the size of your club or league, your volunteer staff spends countless hours and energy collecting, entering, correcting and tracking data and payments for new and returning players.
Today, many sports organizations rely on staff and parent volunteers to manage their in-person sports registration process which is often times limited to one or two days within limited hours and locations. Not only are organizers faced with registering both new and returning players; many times they are also faced with training new volunteers. Active offers an easy, affordable solution: online registration solutions that offer many benefits without increasing staff or volunteer hours.
