There’s a lot of time, energy, and resources spent running a youth sports organization, club, or league – and one could easily compare that to running a business. But, youth sports organizers sometimes shy away from the notion that they should treat and operate their organization with that business mindset.
This shying away can easily be traced back to that overarching goal in youth sports: ensuring our kids have a great experience and learn/grow throughout the process. Don’t let that important goal turn you off from the idea that your sports organization is, indeed, a business.
TeamSnap is here to tell you why. Not only will running your organization like a business help you accomplish that goal, but it will make the day-to-day operation of accomplishing that goal a lot easier. And just because we have our children’s best interest at heart, that doesn’t stop your organization from operating with several key characteristics of a business.
Here are a few signs your organization is actually a business, and why it’s time to start running it like one.
I was able to purchase the league product, configure my registration—very intuitive—and go live in a matter of an hour and a half. It was awesome!
