After endless problems with players and friends not signing up for matches and training, I decided, in 2004, that he would make life easier for coaches and players. I wanted to make a digital platform to communicate between coaches and players so that they could save time on the frustrating coordination, and instead spend more time on the field. This is how SportMember started.
Understanding what functions the user needs the most, and then the continuous iterations and updates needed to stay relevant and keep up user needs, but also with IOS and Android phone developments.

It integrates everything needed for club admins and members to interact, and to stay updated with their teammates and friends. We help clubs and their members effortlessly stay abreast of club news, activities, and memberships.

A general update of the design of the app is ongoing. New profile features, to have a better overview of club members. New membership categories are being developed to be able to categorise members into e.g. students, over the 60s, juniors, family, etc. while still maintaining their team and group affiliation in the app. A new in-app/platform dashboard to give users and admins a better overview of the club.
Please encourage your club managers to use the app for the whole club. get in contact so we can do a no-obligation demo of the system based on your club's needs.
