Charleston Soccer League Selects TeamSnap SaaS

September 14, 2012


The Charleston Soccer League announced that it has selected TeamSnap Software- as -a -Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) for use in its clubs and leagues.

The mobile and web service is used by everyone from players and athletes to coaches and parents to manage teams and leagues in the sports world. It’s an online team management tool for over 100 types of sports, which include lacrosse, hockey, sailing and even cheese rolling.

Sports leagues, clubs, associations and organizations from all over the world use TeamSnap to register players, coordinate and schedule team practices and matches, create team assignments, and even publish maps to game locations. TeamSnap is offered for free, and has premium plans for customized solutions.

The Charleston Soccer League (CSL) is comprised of youth players from as young as pre-kindergarten age through high school teens. The league is currently using TeamSnap to enhance communication between players, administrators, parents and coaches. Also, the CSL is using the app to automate back office tasks which frees up time for administrators to concentrate on running the league instead of processing paperwork.

“TeamSnap allows me to quickly and easily correspond with everyone in the league, either as one group or as teams,” said Daphne Griffin, a CSL board member. She adds that TeamSnap is easier to use than e-mail and keeps a message history for logging purposes.

TeamSnap comes standard with lightning fast customer service response times and takes the pressure out of maintaining Excel spreadsheets for team rosters, which most users find tricky and frustrating to use.

To date, TeamSnap, which was launched in 2007, has millions of raving fans worldwide. In 2010, the company had raised $700,000 in a private funding round, and close to $1 million in a second round of funding in 2011, which has given the company resources to grow even faster.
