I've had extensive experience as a team parent before, using Shutterfly and TeamSnap, but I like SportsEngine the best.
Name: Jenny Stevens
Organization: Phoenix Rising Volleyball Club
Position: Club Director and CEO
SportsEngine Tools Utilized: Sitebuilder, Registration
Jenny Stevens has two kids, a full-time career, and an MBA—and in early 2018 she added “business owner” to that list when she purchased a local volleyball organization that she rebranded to Phoenix Rising.
As a new business owner, Stevens had a lot of details to figure out, including how to put the club’s best foot forward online.
Stevens chose SportsEngine as Phoenix Rising’s technology partner, beginning with a fresh new website and online registration tools.
“We now really stand out from the crowd online,” says Stevens. “Many local sports organizations are using free websites that they created on their own, but you can’t host online registrations directly on the website, and they often look disorganized or out of date.”
“I’ve been familiar with SportsEngine for years from prior clubs that my son and daughter have played on, and knew they’d be my first call for sports technology,” says Stevens. “What I’ve received from SportsEngine is nearly everything I need to manage and grow my organization.”
“Our website looks fantastic and provides a lot of functionality,” says Stevens. “I really like how easy it is to make changes and updates—you simply drag and drop in new elements—it’s so easy, anyone can do it.”
“Everything that we are and represent is on the website—photos, training, registration, payments, club information, and more,” says Stevens. “We’ve made certain things more prominent on the website to make it easier to use for families and we’ve had really good feedback.”
“I’ve had extensive experience as a team parent before, using Shutterfly and TeamSnap, but I like SportsEngine the best,” says Stevens. “I like SportsEngine’s mobile app versus TeamSnap because you can do more personalization and it just looks more professional.”
“Plus, SportsEngine has phenomenal customer support,” says Stevens. “Everyone I’ve worked with has been great, and when I don’t want to call or email, I can live chat with them on their website or watch tutorial videos to help answer my questions.”
“I’ve been beyond happy with SportsEngine,” says Stevens.
