Pros: SportsEngine makes it easy to keep track of our state wide hockey organization. We are able to schedule, update and move rosters, and score games live with a computer. SportsEngine makes it easy to keep track of 26 teams in the organization.

Cons: SportsEngine is easy to use and implement once you start, there is not much I would change about this software, possibly a how to guide for new comers to the software?

Pros: I like the ease of use the most. It is simple with basic language that anyone can use it. You have access to a community forum, help pages, and customer service rep is always there to help you.

Cons: It would be nice to have Hudl integration. For our players and coaches, it would be nice to have that integrated and automatically update on the roster.

SportsEngine has been a great partner and provider for our organization for nearly a decade.

Pros: The best part about SportsEngine's platform is how easy it is to use. It is very simple for administrators who don't have a computer science or programming background to learn how to use the site and create a great online presence. Another great feature of this software is how it is being continuously improved. There are a number of features and functionality available today are weren't just a couple of years ago, and product enhancements continue to be launched frequently.

Cons: Registration fees include a transaction fee and a percentage-based processing fee. These seem small up front, but they can really add up if you process a significant number (or high priced) registrations.

Overall: We currently use the software for our website, a mobile app, tournament software, background screening and online registrations.

Easy to navigate and always someone available to help when needed.

Pros: It is simple to design the pages. None of us are web designers, and we have all the sport teams done in a week.

Cons: Need the ability to post more than one sponsor in the same element. I have used the media slider as an alternate option.

Overall: We consolidated all the sport teams for the high school under one platform that was simple to navigate.

Cons: I think the registration sessions process is difficult because it is hard to convey what you are looking for to the registration team. Some can take multiple revisions to get correct.

Overall: Online registration

Pros: The product is easy to setup and use. If you have any questions, there are many ways to get your answer; help center, videos, and in person. They added the PowerPay for club directors to use credit card purchases which is awesome. The money spent to run your club with SportEngine is a great value.

Overall: Everything I need to run my club.

Proven technology, support is quick and they care about my site.

Pros: Easy to use. Lot of room for creativity. Great communication tool. Great customer and technology support. Online DIY videos are very helpful! Unlimited photos and videos for parents is a big deal! Mirroring tools are valuable. The ability to build custom reports is very helpful. The look is very professional and has helped me "brand" our Athletic Department. When I need to talk to a real person, they are there for me.

Cons: Parents don't read my directions. The software is awesome. When I am searching for an issue in the video support site, I get too many answers. Would love if it would let me search for a term in quotes so I can get to the exact topic. For example, if I put in a search for "how to create a team event" I get every possible topic that has the word "team" in it. Would be helpful to search an exact term. But tech service has worked when the search engine does not. And my Baseball teams wants to separate the calendar events so they can track statistics. Right now I put on the calendar, then when he duplicates an event for statistics, it's confusing to families.

Overall: Branding our Athletic Department. Great communication tool for messaging and the calendar. Parents and faculty at the high school LOVE the visibility and the professional look.

Pros: With no staff I can run my whole organization by self. As easy as a click of a button. Can preform financial functions with ease

Cons: I have issues with the members list and deleting people off. would like to be able to delete members that are not in good standing.

Overall: With no staff or board of directors I can run the entire club by myself. Anything from schedules, team rosters, registration and billing. This program does it all.

I find Sports Engine easy to use and easy to understand with the functionality I'm looking for.

Pros: As a volunteer coach/league administrator, I don't have a lot of time to sit down and learn how to use a new software package. Sports Engine is easy to figure out, and easy to use from day one. It does what I need it to do. Although I have not personally interacted with customer service, I've heard from other users that Sports Engine is responsive and quick to answer our concerns and unique requests.
As a parent, I also like that many of my children's leagues and teams are part of Sports Engine and I only need one login to access all of them.

Cons: I wish it was easier to remove yourself from old teams/leagues that you or your children no longer participate in.

Overall: Great calendar, registration and information portal for parents and athletes.

Pros: Very easy to learn and use, even for non technical users. Integration is a big plus and saves time from manually having to perform certain tasks.

Updated mobile app calendar integration is a big plus as well!

Cons: A few quirks with the calendar and adding events, (ie selecting a specific date and trying to add a new event, reverts back to the current date instead of the one you selected) not a deal breaker but I have had to go back and change things because I forgot about that.

I also wish there were more available canned templates to choose from.

Pros: I really like the ease and flexibility of altering the appearance of our site. The widgets make it very to use. Support team is very responsive and their developers seem to be consistently making improvements.

Cons: The sms and messaging has improved greatly for clubs/teams but it needs to have the ability to message on a league wide basis.

Vendor Response

by SportsEngine on June 22, 2017

Thanks for the review Chris. We recently released People360, a new tool that allows you to message any and all members. Best of all, you can create groups easily, and also send messages to teams or groups of teams. I think this would be a great solution for you to take care of league wide messaging. Here's more information or you can reach out to your account manager. https://www.sportsengine.com/solutions/people360/

Pros: First off, it's very professional looking! Which is a big selling point for my league. The look created legitimacy for my league. The support staff has been excellent to work with! From the Sales Representative and Account Manager I work with, all the way through Registration and Tech Support departments, all have been helpful, and prompt when doing so! I honestly believe the professional look of my website has given my business the edge over the competition in my market. And last, but certainly not least, the website is super easy for the user like me to edit, post pictures, video and content to my website.

Cons: I don't dislike anything about Sport Engine's websites, or them as a company. If there was anything that could be thought of as a negative, or a drawback, is that as a new company, they have a lot of great new ideas and features that they plan to roll out in the future, but things like that take time to develop, so making sure they're done right for the sake of the customer is what is important. Patience is the virtue we all must have until those new features are brought to use.

Extremely satisfied; fantastic customer service; easy to build a professional looking website.

Pros: SportsEngine has been a true partner from the original sales cycle to the design, build and implementation of our travel baseball site. Their outstanding customer service and support is world class. I'm a IT professional and work with many vendors and I would rank SportsEngine right up there with the best of them. They deliver a high-end product with incredible responsive support and assistance (and always with a smile).

Our organization knew want we wanted and SportsEngine went above and beyond to ensure we were happy with the end solution. We were admittedly a high-maintenance customer and I never once sensed they were frustrated with accommodating our requests/needs. The SportsEngine community as been a great resource for us for new ideas and tips/tricks. The tools was easy to learn and fun to work with. The tool allows for an incredible amount of functionality. We believe SportsEngine platform and professional support has allowed us to build one of the top travel baseball sites in the country. The cost was super competitive to other platforms we looked at and if you look at the site, you would expect that it cost way, way more than what we paid for it. It's a great value through and through. We couldn't be happier with our selection of SportsEngine and we couldn't be happier with our ongoing partnership.

Overall: Platform allows us to build a world class website for a elite travel baseball program.

Pros: This isn't just website/marketing software! It's a web-based platform for running your entire sports organization. It's how we communicate, manage teams, organize events, accept payments and manage registrations.
Want to get word out at the last minute about a cancellation? Use SportsEngine to broadcast the message by text and email, with a simple calendar update.
Want to bill a parent for their kids extra lesson? Just send them a PowerPay bill online. You'll get paid online and have a record of the whole thing.
To top it all off, the whole thing is backed by NBC Sports, so you get all kinds of free publicity at a National level and your organization looks like they've really got it together.

Cons: There are some things that I don't like, but they just keep making it better. Don't like something? Go to a user group meeting and talk to them about it. If your ideas make more sense, you'll probably see them in an update. They have great support and really listen to the needs of their users.

Pros: I had no prior experience as a webmaster when our MN Selects organization decided to pursue a company to help us manage our 40 team/680 player yearly festival. In a short time, we were up and running with a brand new website leveraging SportsEngine. I would say the most important aspect of the software is it's ease of use - the fact that an individual (and organization) with no prior experience was able to implement a solution so quickly clearly speaks to the strength of the product. In addition, equally as important to me/us as users, is the quality of the team's Customer Support. I continue to be impressed with the ease in which we are able to enhance and upgrade our site year after year thanks to the help of the SportsEngine team.

Overall: The MN Selects were able to replace the manual registration process for approximately 700 players each year with an online solution that has built in reporting capabilities. So, in addition to managing our Festival more effectively in terms of time and money, we are also able to leverage various functionality to allow our coaches to track their registrations, assign jersey numbers, etc., as well as allow our Directors to track their regions teams at a holistic level.

Pros: The ability to manage a travel club all through the site and software is perfect for any team or organization of any size.

Cons: It doesn't have a POS component yet. With a multisport facility that includes a sports bar, smoothie bar, and pro shop it makes it a bit difficult to manage them all through the site.

Overall: Great looking site, that is easy to manage, and a great system that manages the club registration and team's for me.

Pros: The ability for my coaches to input info on their teams without having to send it to me to do. Allows parents to upload pictures of the players during the season.

Cons: So far I haven't run into any problems that I'd say were a con for the software. If anything it would be for the user who is not familiar with computers learning curve.

Overall: Allows my players, coaches and parents to feel like they are a part of the club. Next season we will institute the online payment which will save me the headaches of collection.

Pros: The ease of use makes SportsEngine a must for any sports league. Changing our web-site to keep it new and fresh is so easy. We have had a ton of compliments from our families that the web-site is so user friendly and always current. With out the ease of use on the back end we would not be able to keep it as current as we do.

Pros: Ease of navigating through the site. The website is very user friendly. From an administrative stand point, it's very easy to do the behind the scene adjustments/changes.

Cons: A few items need tweaking:
1. I would like the ability to set registration close dates or capacity levels for each team. Basically, close registration at any level at any time.
2. When sending out an email with a PDF it should be one click to attach and send.
3. When sending out an email to different groups I should be able to click on multiple groups to receive my email. However, that currently can't be done so have have to cut and paste multiple times.
4. I should be able to send a group email to all the families who have an outstanding balance. However, under the current system I have to send out an email to each family individually.
I would be willing to work with you to enhance your site to make it even better

Pros: The ability to be able to take our unique custom operational sports platform and adapt it and SportsEngine adaptations to get to the end results we wanted thereof. We demand a lot of data both from an analytics but also to users data within the analytics while using other software modules in a fully desktop and IOS/Android apps platform for our club members. SportsEngine has worked with us as we have pushed their system to fit our custom applications and uses thereof. The end result is that we have greatly reduced our staff time on a weekly bases by over 75%. This is huge savings in preparing for a transition plan.

Cons: Registration for events, games and tournaments has some areas for improvement such as Page 2 of a new registration information should all just pop up as the same versus entering the same information over every time. We do between 90-100 registrations and that is the same reentry of information to the registration questions. Especially when it is a copy of a registration to the same site with a new title and that is all that is being changed.

Overall: Eliminated our Accounts Receivables, Game Scheduler to go to desktop, IOS/Android Apps, data base generator, Game registrations flexibility and each team registration communications as well as being flexible to enable our live game iScorecast to be incorporated into SportsEngine software.

Overall, Sport Engine is a great platform...very comprehensive and data-driven.

Pros: Online Registration, ability to post schedules, standings, playoff results, member database for future events and seasons. With all of our incoming parents they have grown up in the internet age. They expect to be able to have an online source to register, get updates, see schedules, pictures, videos and a lot more. It really does give us a competitive advantage over other leagues.

Overall: The main benefit is the ability to stay in touch with our membership base. I can send an email to all members about camps, upcoming seasons, schedule changes, stats, scores, playoff brackets, all kinds of benefits to choose from. When we started using the software we were a league of around 60 teams. Now we have over a hundred and counting. I do believe that parents love the ease of use and they can have their own team pages at no additional cost to the team.

For anyone that knows how expensive a hosted website can be the cost of SportsEngine is nothing compared to what you receive. Unlimited photos, videos, calendars, team pages..... it just goes on and on. We have used SportsEngine going on 8 years and I can't imagine ever changing. It's just too easy.

professional, accommodating, and forward thinking.

Pros: that it recognizes it's customer: the volunteer. it caters to many skill levels of customer and is always updating based on feedback.

SportsEngine is so much more than a platform or template for our team's website.

Pros: I enjoy the evolving nature of the website, always improving and taking every opportunity to help you get to the next level of optimization.

Cons: Currently, Powerpay is a tool utilized for non-recurring invoices like tournament fees, jersey reorders, etc and it does not allow the payments to be designated to the specific team account - Powerpay collections go into one main account. This causes a lot of backend reconciliation and money transfers.
I know that they are working on this.

Glad we switched!

Pros: One stop app for all our team spanning multiple leagues. I can keep track of where everyone is play on any given day! SE has been actively updating its offerings either for their web platform or apps based on suggestions made by their users on their Ideas page. Can't wait to see what's next.

We've been giving team managers more access and they love the team management features.

Cons: No Windows 10 app! I get it... not exactly a great case to develop one as their Windows 10 Mobile isn't that popular but with millions of desktops using Windows 10 (including most of our organizations) it would seem a no-brainer to have a simple desktop app to access the info

SportsEngine is the best League management platform out there. I also know several teams use it too

Pros: Very easy to use, very user friendly. Great graphics and support when you need it.
I have been with them since 2012 and I see improvements being made that are beneficial to the teams.

Cons: I would like to see where you can send emails to multiple smart groups, yet not send to the entire league.

Always great and helpful people. Love the software!!

Pros: It's so user friendly and easy to use. You can add and subtract from the site at will. Easy to attach documents. The reporting is also a great feature. The registration itself is easy for our parents to use.

Overall: It made our registration so easy now. No paper to handle. No money to handle. Those two things make it worth it by themselves.

SportsEngine is by far the easiest sports related software platform I've ever used.

Pros: As the Director the Mankato Sports Commission as well as being involved at a volunteer level for numerous sports organizations I have been exposed to and had to use many different sports related software/website platforms. SportsEngine is hands down the best of any I have ever used. In minutes I can show somebody who has never used the software a few basic things and get them up to speed enough that they can easily help manage a website on this platform. I love that you don't need to know how to write code or really any technical aspects in order to make changes or updates.

Cons: Occasionally I run into things I'd like to do on our website that are not available as options however the SportsEngine team always gets back to me in timely fashion to either let me know of a way to do it or let me know if that is something they are working on.

Overall: Ease of use, improved communication and much more.

What every team needs. Small or large

Pros: Easy to use and the support staff has been amazing. It's like having employees. Helps communicate with people outside of or actual sphere of influence GREAT for sponsor seeking

Cons: Some of the colors
When needing a registration for it would be nice to choose a template and not have to wait for a programmer but we understand the clean and neat work of the programmer is needed

Overall: Managing groups and monetizing the website was so easy

Takes a little work to get used to but once you figure out the templates it very easy to use.

Pros: It integrates easy from desktop to phone. Covers all the bases when it comes to team management. Also like the easy connect to Game Changer App.

Cons: A little confusing understanding the site templates at first. Wish I had more options to change page features like font and color.

Overall: Just a few more tweaks and the software will be perfect.

The big bully now...without improvements they will eventually disappear.

Pros: Sports Engine has most the features you want, can handle big data, and is somewhat configurable.

Cons: It's a beast, not many volunteer organizations have the IT skill on staff required to run it properly. Trust me, this is not user friendly software.

Overall: No doubt this is probably the biggest most robust system out there, but the platform is clunky and becoming antiquated. They need a full rewrite or eventually someone will replace them with a more user friendly product.

SportsEngine: Lots of promises but nothing works as advertised. Customer support is awful.

Pros: Its a professional looking website.

Cons: Extremely time consuming to use. Awful customer support. Lot's of glitches and bugs.

Overall: I purchased this product to set up a website for a youth volleyball club I manage. None of the features the sales rep promised or touted work as advertised. They will take your money and leave you to figure everything out. I had to hire someone with website experience to get the basic shell set up. It's not intuitive or user friendly. There are lots of bugs and glitches. Extremely frustrating. The worst part of the experience has been the customer support. There is none. You have to email your question. Responses take a minimum of 24 hours to come and they rarely solve the problem. Mostly a "try this" or "we think"... If I attempt their "try this" and it does not work it's another email and another 24+ hours for a response. Items that should be resolved in less then an hour take weeks to resolve. Don't waste your money or time with this product.

Recommendations to other buyers: Company is spending to much time adding new features and not enough time making what it has work.

Vendor Response

Thanks for the feedback Anthony. Our support team is available 7 days a week and you can contact them via phone, email, or twitter. Also, I'd recommend you reach out and set up a time with your account manager so they can help you out. It's an included part of your service and should help you get started.
