"TeamSnap is committed to helping youth sports clubs and leagues across the U.S. and Canada take the work out of play by simplifying the time-consuming administration aspect of organizing a league and running it day-to-day. We are excited to be partnering with MYSA and becoming the go-to sportstech provider for their club administrators and dedicated youth sports communities," said Brian Caulfield, COO of TeamSnap.
TeamSnap will provide MYSA member clubs not currently using its Clubs & Leagues solution with a discount in their first year of subscription. Released in 2022, the new TeamSnap for Clubs & Leagues includes features for member management, registration, payments, mobile app and website integrations as well as services to help with the design, implementation and ongoing maintenance of their TeamSnap experience. The easy-to-use offering will grow with a club and league year-over-year, allowing them to simply start a new season or new club offering without starting from scratch.
"For more than 50 years, Minnesota Youth Soccer Association has been dedicated to helping member clubs provide a safe and meaningful soccer experience for Minnesota youth," said Joe Dettlaff, Chief Member Services Officer at MYSA. "TeamSnap is known for its innovative tools and easy-to-use platform that make the job of running a youth sports club as simple as it should be while also ensuring that no communications get missed in crowded inboxes. We believe this can have a positive impact for our busy families, coaches, and admins. We are thrilled to partner with them and bring them into our youth soccer network."
TeamSnap Impact Growth in Maryland
TeamSnap Impact also recently expanded its impact reach for youth soccer players in underserved communities in Maryland, through partnership and providing financial support. Two years into its partnership with Maryland State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA), this year MSYSA and TeamSnap doubled the number of kids they are servicing in Title 1 schools, from 250 kids last year to now servicing 500 kids.
In April, TeamSnap Impact went to Silver Spring, Maryland to join MSYSA's "Let's Play!" community event. TeamSnap Impact provides direct funding to MSYSA's Let's Play! Program, which is an after-school initiative designed to transform the lives of participants while positively impacting underserved communities. This safe, character building, community supported program helps to teach social and emotional skills while fighting obesity and related illnesses.
"From the first moment we connected with TeamSnap, it was clear that their goals aligned with MSYSA's mission, which is to grow the game and transform lives," said Gandalf French, Technical Director for MSYSA. "This partnership with TeamSnap is helping to reduce participation barriers through our Let's Play! program, improving access to technology to assist our members, and providing smoother communication for our ODP families."
