For many parents, youth sports is a way of life that encourages their kids to be active and helps develop social connections with other youths. Keeping track of the team schedules, funding team travels, and building a fan community can be a headache for youth leagues across the country. Recognizing this issue, Blue Star Sports set out on a mission to create a friendly Internet environment to lessen the stress of managing youth leagues.
In Blue Star Sports’ quest to create a thriving online community, they have acquired over six companies specializing in easy web design for the less technically savvy parent. Their latest acquisition is the Frisco-based company, LeagueLineup.
LeagueLineup is the WordPress for youth leagues. An easy web-building tool that can track all the information for teams such as:
- Player and team Statistics
- Photo albums
- Team schedules
- Fan shops to help with funding
- Background checks for safety
Building a league site is relatively painless with LeagueLineup. They also encourage users to use their free registration options for teams. They offer a number of options that make it easy for players to sign-up with their team. This includes auto-filling customer information for any upcoming season. The site also emphasizes safety, both with background checks, and using PayPal to protect families from online and on-field intruders.
LeagueLineup boasts that it is the number 1 team managing solution since 1998. The site brings 25,000 new customers to Blue Star Sports and adds to the company’s continued efforts to make youth leagues easily access able to all families.
