Do not use them!
There is not one good thing about this software, you will pull your hair out every time you try to login.
I work with a lot of software this is by far the clunkiest worst sports management software on the market. Stay far away from this terrible product. Nothing is intuitive and easy to use or manage. Customer support is terrible, they ended the chat conversation after they sent me a link to fix the issue I was having, the link un-useful because the instructions were not as they should be, but I couldn't chat with them they hung up on me. Do yourself a favor and use a different sports management website platform.

nice calendar, that's it.
Everything else stinks, they are very fee greedy, and will charge you for every bad charge they get. A lot of other company can do the same thing cheaper and better service, stay away from customer service as very limited information on their finance department and that is the way the company likes it.
britania from BAHHA
its user friendly and supports in place encourage new users to navigate easily and learn at their
own pace. its easy to generate and share reports. uploading pictures to keep relevant web content is appreciated as kids enjoy seeing their pictures.
i actually do not have complaints about this software as i am just learning, the tutorials have helped so it is not intimidating by any means and the convenience of the on line chat is fantastic. Maybe I won't like the mobile version as sometimes apps do not have everything but honestly in a pinch i would use it but these old eyes prefer a bigger screen to work from.
Armando from FUTSOC
It made my soccer clubs administrative duties much simpler.
The ease of use in regards to registrations and payments. It has really streamlined my club and completely eliminated the use of any paper. The constant updates and changes to the platform to better it have been so useful as well.
The website designer needs an overhaul. For the average sports rep running the website it is very useful, but for someone who wants to take the website to the next level, it is pretty limiting.
Mostly I used it for finding out scheduled events for club volleyball tourney
Is a very simplistic app that combines all of the necessary components that team members would need to find out important info about team functions.
Could use some capability features that link to other tournament apps. A club volleyball uses this app but needs a separate app to generate tournament information other than the basics.

Great overall website and solutions source. Covers everything. Great resource for players and parents and great tools for administrators.
Very pleased. Seems to have EVERYTHING covered. Awesome resource for players and administrators alike.
Adam from Flin Flon Bombers
Ease of use
editing can be easy
links are created easily, options available to use audio/video etc
can be difficult to navigate
has outdated templates
large files take a very long time to load
no audio editing
Easy to use, very powerful platform that allows you to manage your team or organization
A little buggy, and difficult to grasp the templates at first, but with some work, you're able to utilize all the platform has to offer.
Mark from IX Web Hosting (Endurance International Group)
We just ran a fundraiser through the site. 4421 individual products sold through a shareable social media link from our Sports Engine team page. We made money for our lacrosse club and I didn't have to lift a finger. They built it all as a registration. When it comes time for delivery I run one report and all the data is there.
The interface is simple and user-friendly. Parents and players love the team stats feature! Great mobile App. Reporting is a breeze exportable .xls for everything you want to know. Registrations can be used for fundraising sales. Can't say enough about their support team and I manage a support team for a web hosting company. I could have built all the functionality myself but it would have taken months these guys have an out of the box solution at a reasonable price. Don't listen to the hater reviews they have no idea what it takes to keep an application like this running and are looking for free software that can't do what you need it to do. This stuff works and is reasonably priced!
Some limitations to the size of pick list you can have them build for you when using registrations as fundraising management but I'm asking a lot of their support team to manually build out lists. I wish they would implement export to Google Drive in the spreadsheet reporting features.
Heather from Synergy Marketing
Very intuitive, easy to implement even if you have never had experience with websites or doing anything with websites.
Wish we could integrate hudl and wish there was more of a knowledge center with searchable videos to make it easier to find what you need.

Thanks for the review Heather. While this may not be the exact integration you are looking for, we recently published an article in our Community re: HUDL and SportsEngine
Several of our Help Center articles also include how to videos.
Finally, another educational resource with videos is our webinar series.
Kimberly from Bishop Shanahan High School and Myself
Parents at the High School LOVE the fact that they can be communicated with, the calendar is easy to read. And all forms and information is all in one place.
Easy to use! Easy to train others to use. Tech support is very helpful. Helped me brand our Athletic Dept and families LOVE it! Easy to access and full of all the information parents need at our High School.
When I go to the helpful videos, I can't search a specific topic. Too many articles come up for the topic I choose. Other than that, absolutely NO problems with Sports Engine.
Kimberly from Construction
SportsEngine makes it easy to keep track of our state wide hockey organization. We are able to schedule, update and move rosters, and score games live with a computer. SportsEngine makes it easy to keep track of 26 teams in the organization.
SportsEngine is easy to use and implement once you start, there is not much I would change about this software, possibly a how to guide for new comers to the software?
Stephanie from Warner Robins High School
I like the ease of use the most. It is simple with basic language that anyone can use it. You have access to a community forum, help pages, and customer service rep is always there to help you.
It would be nice to have Hudl integration. For our players and coaches, it would be nice to have that integrated and automatically update on the roster.

We currently use the software for our website, a mobile app, tournament software, background screening and online registrations.
The best part about SportsEngine's platform is how easy it is to use. It is very simple for administrators who don't have a computer science or programming background to learn how to use the site and create a great online presence. Another great feature of this software is how it is being continuously improved. There are a number of features and functionality available today are weren't just a couple of years ago, and product enhancements continue to be launched frequently.
Registration fees include a transaction fee and a percentage-based processing fee. These seem small up front, but they can really add up if you process a significant number (or high priced) registrations.
Chris from North Shore Youth Football Club
Ease of use. Not being a "techy person" it was important to have something easy to create and modify.
Although we love the ease of creating registration the back end fees of money collection is always a challenge.

Information for my kid on Sporting events and times
They get back to you in less than an hour when you call in. Although, it is still not fixed and still waiting.
Parents do not get support when they call. Still waiting after 4 attempts and they still have not resolved a simple problem.
Megan from Spirit of Duluth
It is very user friendly regardless of your tech experience. It allows information to be accessed by all concerned parties quickly and accurately.
Christian from Hansen Insurance
The email function allows you to send one email at the click of a button as opposed to having to send multiple.
It's not the easiest to use when designing layouts for your team's website. Could have a little more user friendly interface.
Jeff from Chattahoochee H.S. Athletics
We consolidated all the sport teams for the high school under one platform that was simple to navigate.
It is simple to design the pages. None of us are web designers, and we have all the sport teams done in a week.
Need the ability to post more than one sponsor in the same element. I have used the media slider as an alternate option.
Rick from Katy Rugby Football Club
easy of registration, a collection of data on families, a collection of dues, communications, app-driven for push notifications, interaction with photos, videos, game detail outcomes, player profiles,
Simple and easy to use, mass communication made easy, very effective and simple to set up and use. Parents like the app as makes the notifications of upcoming practices, events, games, changes very easy to communicate.
Mark from West Shore Amateur Hockey Association
I like the countless options and setups available to make your site unique. The support for questions or concerns is pretty quick and accurate as well.
I think the registration sessions process is difficult because it is hard to convey what you are looking for to the registration team. Some can take multiple revisions to get correct.
Nick from Woodbury Area Hockey Club
Employees number: 2-10 employees
It is easy to configure, mobile friendly, and easy for end-users to access information from registration through the end of the season.
Some greater reporting capability regarding DIBS (volunteer tracking) for organiaotons that have a minimum volunteering requirement.
