USA Volleyball Partners with SportsEngine as Member Management Provider

SportsEngine becomes the provider for USA Volleyball’s member management services

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (May 16, 2019) – USA Volleyball announced today that it has partnered with SportsEngine Inc., an NBC Sports Group company and leading provider of sport relationship management software, to become the national governing body’s member management technology provider for its 370,000 members and 4,500 active clubs, effective Sept. 1, 2019. USA Volleyball has a long-standing relationship with SportsEngine, being partnered with its owned companies AES, BracketPal and NCSI.

USA Volleyball and its 40 affiliated Regional Volleyball Associations (RVAs) will have the opportunity to use SportsEngine’s member management suite of tools to manage their regional, club and athlete membership data. This is a true online ecosystem with robust reporting, financial tools, enhanced communication, rostering and more that will provide for automated data sharing and eliminate duplicate efforts. The SportsEngine system will also integrate with third-party systems to provide up-to-the-minute information on memberships, ensuring that all participants are certified with the safety program requirements, and have completed a background check. Such efficiencies will allow for real-time access to information on memberships and certifications which support USAV’s safety initiatives.

“We are very honored and excited to form this partnership with USA Volleyball,” said Libby Kohlbeck, SportsEngine’s head of volleyball. “To have the ability to work with an elite organization to create and deliver an incredible technology experience for regions, club administrators, coaches, officials, volunteers and families is our goal here at SportsEngine. It’s exciting when our mission, vision, and values completely align with an organization as they do with USA Volleyball and we can’t wait to get started.”

USA Volleyball’s mission is to lead, serve and grow all areas of the sport. Volleyball continues to have tremendous growth in the United States and is the number-one participatory sport in high school and college for women as well as the fastest growing sport among high school boys. USA Volleyball’s membership has grown every year since 1980 and has hit record levels again this season. The SportsEngine system will allow USAV to continue its upward trajectory by allowing a positive end-user experience for the athletes and their families.

“We are thrilled to work with SportsEngine to provide value to our regions, clubs and members,” stated USA Volleyball CEO Jamie Davis. “This partnership allows us to improve communication, support our ‘safety first’ strategic priority, and provide a seamless membership experience across all of USA Volleyball.”

CLUB DIRECTORS CONFERENCE CALL INVITATION

Club Directors,
We have used the fall Junior Director’s Meeting as a way to get information to your clubs and get input for SRVA Board considerations.  We have heard that since this meeting is not in the heat of the season, it does not always lend itself well to getting and giving feedback.  So in an attempt to better serve the Junior community, we are planning on having periodic online meetings.  The first online meeting will be on January 23, 2019 at 8:00 pm EST.  This online conference will be audio with screen share so we can demonstrate online features as needed.  The duration is limited to 40 minutes.  This time has been selected to follow normal dinner time even thought it may conflict with some club practices.  If you have a better suggestion for the time that would benefit all clubs, please let us know.  Below is the general agenda for this first meeting and the information for joining the session.
Agenda – Registration for SRVA 18 Bid and Regional Championships,  How did the 5 day tryout policy work for you and your club?, and Time for Questions and Comments.
