SportsEngine Completes 1,000,000th Member Verification
SportsEngine announced today that it has completed over 1,000,000 athlete membership verifications through its registration service. Verifying active memberships ensures that athletes and teams are eligible for participation in sanctioned games, events, and tournaments. Additionally, having non-compliant athletes on the field of play creates risk to insurance programs offered through governing bodies. Membership verification, validated through SportsEngine’s registration system, is the best way to solve these problems and mitigate risk.
“Since integrating our first membership validation service with USA Hockey, we have successfully validated over 1 million athlete memberships for our customers.“ said Angie Franks, chief marketing officer for SportsEngine. “This service not only ensures athlete’s have active memberships with their governing bodies, but it takes the burden off of the volunteers for youth sports organizations to manage compliance. It really helps them play smarter and live more.”
After completing the membership process with their governing body, athletes input their active membership number into the SportsEngine online registration system utilized by the youth sports organization they are joining for the year. That membership is validated with the governing body and the athlete is able to complete the registration process. The process is fully integrated and completely eliminates the need to collect and validate memberships offline.
Member verification process through SportsEngine is currently available for several governing bodies including USA Hockey, AAU, U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Association (USSA), and others. The service can be set up for any governing body and SportsEngine expects several others to provide these to their member organizations in 2016.
“We hear everyday that this is one of the most appreciated features of our registration product” added Ms. Franks. “Governing bodies believe it is the best way to not only make the process easy for their current membership, but also drives overall membership growth which is critical to the health of their business.”
