Sports organization coordinators aren’t the only ones who can benefit from an online sports registration system. An online registration system makes the whole process easier for everyone involved, including sports parents. Not sure if your organization’s parents will support your move to an online sports registration system? Here are 4 reasons they’ll be glad you did.

They can sign up at their convenience.

If both parents are working full time jobs, getting to the Park District’s main office by 6 PM to drop off the kid’s registration form for youth baseball is like an episode of 24; every second counts. An online registration system gives sports parents the ability to register their athletes whenever is most convenient for them, even if it’s 10:30 at night or 6 in the morning.

No more paperwork to worry about.

How often do registration forms get accidently thrown away, lost at the bottom of a purse or briefcase? What happens if they filled out the wrong form or filled out the form wrong? Online sports registration systems get rid of the headaches that come with paperwork. They are easy to use and easy to update so parents never have to worry about making a mistake that could potentially delay the registration process.

An online registration system can process checks, debit cards and credit cards for easy payment.

Parents can register using whatever payment method they choose with an online sports registration system. If they want to use the credit card and build miles for a trip to Florida or pay directly with a debit card, the choice is up to them.

They have instant access to practice and game schedules.

Sports organization coordinators can post team practice and game schedules online, which are then accessible through the online registration system. Parents never have to worry about losing a practice schedule again! Coaches can also use the online sports registration system to contact team members directly en masse, guaranteeing that everyone is getting the same email with the same information. An online registration system can help keep your sports parents in the loop!
