It is common for kids to partake in organized sports outside of a school setting. It is important to take into consideration the behind the scenes work that must take place to operate these sports such as a league registrar. This person is tasked with collecting and managing player information throughout the season. These volunteers face many challenges such as: effectively registering kids into the league while tracking finances, organizing teams, and fulfilling coaching requests.
In the past the only way for leagues to accept registrations was through paper forms, on which parents would fill in all the relevant information about their children, attach a check or cash, and mail it to or drop it off with the organization. With the introduction of online registration software it is mitigating this tedious process.
Save Time and Paper
An average youth sports league varies from about 500 or 1,000 athletes. For organizations using paper registrations, this translates into a large amount of work for registrars. Sports registration software removes this paperwork. All player information is instantly available to registrars in an easy-to-manage upon entry.
Taking cheques and cash received from parents to the bank takes time for league registrars. In addition, holding onto that much money can be a stressful situation. A credit card payment option eliminates this hassle and automatically delivers fees into the league’s accounts.
Registrars might be tasked with organizing teams and errors can easily be made, particularly with special requests from parents. This can be accomplished in a few minutes.
