Easy-to-use Software for Amateur Leagues
Overall, we have had a great experience and the staff has done their best to assist us as much as they can when the software has been lacking. Do your homework and ask specific questions that pertain to your business, so you know if this is the right switch for you.
I love that this software has an app that parents can use that links with our system. This allows for easier communication of schedules. It also has a well thought out registration system and communication system (e mail and text messages). Their set up team and customer support were great to work with as well. It is a great system to keep your registration, teams, and billing all in one platform.
Once we had already switched over to the software we found a lot of things the software could NOT do, that we were told it could. It didn't work out as well for our business as we had hoped it would, which in turn made our lives a lot more complicated. The system was created to cover a broad range of things, and it doesn't get very specific into any one of those things. We needed specifics, and this is where it began to not work as well for us.
Run from League Apps!!
I run a youth little league baseball and softball program, ages 4 to 12 years old. I looked into using League Apps and after compairing league apps to the many other sports managment software out there, I found league apps to provide the least amount. Leaqgue Apps compaired to the other sports managment software looks to be very non profesional. I found all of the diferent brands of software to cost about the same when you add in all of the extra cost, but league apps had very little to offer. After compairing all of the different brands I went with Jevin Sports Managment Software and I am verry happy that I did. When I read the League Apps customer feed back from League Apps costomers I find that every complaint their customers have would be fixed if they changed and went to Jevin. Here is the website for Jevin; http://www.jevin.net/
I talked with League Apps and looked into using league apps in early spring. Now over 6 months later League Apps will not quite spaming my email box. I have told them that I went with Jevin sports managment software, I have also nicly asked league apps to leavue me alone. I have emailed them and asked them to remove my from their email list, I have taked with them and asked them nicely to quit contacting me and they still email me several times a week asking for me to sign up with league apps software. Do your self a favor and run from league apps. Try Jevin sports managment software, you and your players will be glade you did.
LOVE this program & the employees
I run an Adult Soccer League and LeagueApps has been a life & time saver for me! I would recommend them hands down. We have over 700 players and need to be able to stay on top of my game, LeagueApps maked this happen.
My players LOVE the ease of registration as well as payment process. I love that I can track it easily. The financial reports, invoices, discount codes, etc are Awesome.
I have been using LeagueApps for almost 2 years now and I have had to call them a few times. Every call has been a pleasant experience and my issue resolved the same day.
The app is very user friendly, the employees are friendly and I can not say enough positive things about the entire program and employees!
I would use them again if I was starting over!
Easy to use, Instant up to date info
After 2 years of using...havent found anything I can say negatively!
Response from LeagueApps
Thanks so much for the kind words, Michelle! We love being a part of what you're doing with Diva Soccer and look forward to many more years together!
League Apps has changed my life!
I am the Director of Operations for a National Travel Team and until being introduced to League Apps, I was running our organization manually, what I believe I would now refer to as "the dark ages" and have now entered the "21st Century"!
The process of setting up my registration system was a detailed but a quite simple process and my Launch Coach, Stephanie could not have made the process more pleasurable. Stephanie was not only knowledgable and informative, but her ability to instruct me with patience was quite remarkable. We set up calls and Stephanie was able to access my computer through screen sharing and it was as if she were sitting next to me during my lessons.
I am now able to manage registrations for over 80 families from all over the country, as well as manage the accounts receivables with a touch of a button. I use League Apps for e mail communication as well as texting my players and families with updates. As well, we now have an on line gear store which will absolutely make my ordering of uniforms and additional gear for our players and families simple. I am even able to manage my organization through my smart phone as well as my computer, so even when I am "on the go" I have easy access.
Most importantly, I have had a very positive response from my families, and for that, I know that I made the right decision. It was an investment in my company that was well-spent. I would highly recommend using League Apps for any organized sports organization, whether you are a National Travel Organization like mine, or a Local Town Club Team.
So Cal National Travel Team is now League Apps #1 FAN! Thank you!!!!
Life Made Easier!
My husband and I volunteer together to run the Police Athletic League program and registration was always a nightmare! From the start -- the introduction demo call LeagueApps customer service was impressive! Our coach Stephanie was patient and helpful while she walked me through the steps to create our program site. The coaching calls were very productive and extremely helpful. Stephanie diligently worked to address problems, answer my questions, and promptly respond to my email questions before our next scheduled coaching call. She was very helpful with offering suggestions and solutions that would best fit with how we wanted to organize our registration and program information. While the member side of the site is very easy to use for our parents and provides a more polished online presence; the managerial side takes a little bit more time to learn to navigate (mostly because it is packed with A BUNCH of options to ensure that your program runs smoothly) and that is why I only gave it three stars for "Ease of Use". But like I said, Stephanie was GREAT with assisting us with not only the set up process but she checked in with us after we were up and running to see if we had and questions or needed help. LeagueApps and Stephanie helped our organization create a personalized, professional site presence while also saving my marriage!
HUGE step in the RIGHT direction
I LOVE the customer service hospitality that is constantly displayed by the staff. Their positive energy is infectious!! They are always willing and eager to assist their customers with any issues that may be encountered. It's also great that the company is focused on consistently developing their software.
I was originally using a competitor's software for general business operations. The feature that stood out to me for LeagueApps was the fact that customers may link their bank account to the platform for automatic payment deductions if they are paying for our services via installments. This allows our company to ensure that we are constantly receiving the payments that are owed to us in a timely manner.
Resizing images is simple with this software however I wish that I wouldn't have to use a third-party in order to complete this task.
I run a Parks and Rec Dept and have been using this system on a daily basis for two rounds of registrations. It requires some time to learn the nuances but overall it has been a great move for our dept. Just started using the RSVP feature and waiting on feedback to see how well it works. Customer service is second to none!
Ease of use
Takes time to learn, could use a calendar for the programs not just a schedule for games and events.
Use LeagueApps for everything!
I've realized how much this app helps us stay organized. It has minimized errors.
We are able to use it for everything! Registration, website, it's user friendly, and we use it for all of our sports.
This software is exceptional. I can't think of any area that it is lacking. As I said before, we use it for everything.
Great team motivated to make my new site everything I wanted and more. Quick responses.
I love the ease of setting up pages, posts, events, etc. through the divibuilder. The program is written in a way where it really simplifies the process for the user and makes website setup efficient and effective. When I did have a question the guys working with me were incredibly quick to get me an answer or find it if they did not know it. I would highly recommend coming to LeagueApps and giving it a shot.
I am working through the roster functionality currently and it's a little more difficult to set up that on previous sites. However, I think that once I learn how to do it the site will look better and will allow me to do more with less time.
League Apps has gone above and beyond for what we need. As a University Club Sports Department, our use of the system is different than what it was originally created for (city rec leagues) but they've worked with us to create solutions to match our unique needs. The work they did to integrate the League Apps side of the website to match our University's has been fantastic.
The best part of League Apps is the fact that they're ever changing, and willing to adapt to the needs of their users. They're continuing to match the list of needs I have to make the system work for a University Club Sports Department.
The only con that I have was that I had been bounced around to different reps a couple times. In each situation I have to re-explain the unique situation and get them lined up with the specifics. BUT each time I've done so the reps have caught on very quickly and answered my questions and provided solutions in a timely manner.
I would and have recommended League Apps to any Sports Coordinator.
The League Apps Team and Software
Let me start by saying I have never designed or developed a website before. I have a full time job and do this as a volunteer for a non-profit organization. My salesman from LeagueApps was patient, helpful, and very excited to help my organization develop a website to meet all our needs. Once I started playing around with the tools it was very easy to layout the site and it was fun to create something to help my organization. The software is very user friendly. Honestly i'm a law enforcement officer who doesn't use a computer all day long like most people, so if I can design a site that looks and functions great anyone can do it. If your on the fence about whether or not LeagueApps is for you my advice is contact them and talk to them about your needs and let them show you what they can do for you and your organization. You will not regret it!
Like what I can do with images of our players. That was extremely limited with our previous provider
I really like that I can easily manipulate images and have them be the size that I want. With our previous provider, I was limited to what was available within the page template, so I ended up with a lot of small images of our players. That's a huge selling point for me in favor of LeagueApps.
I'd like to see a calendar feature, where I could highlight an upcoming event right on the front page.
LeagueApps is awesome!
I have been involved with the sports industry for the better part of twenty years and LeagueApps is exactly what I've been looking for. The software is easy to use and to understand. The LeagueApps team is patient, professional and extremely friendly. Stephanie Vera and her colleague, Emily Mumford, are the best. They take as much time as needed to explain everything to you and go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied as their customer. It truly is a team effort. In addition, the software allows me to collect important data, it helps tremendously with organization of teams, leagues, tournaments, etc and it is user friendly for my customers to register for all of our services. Thank you LeagueApps for everything you do! You have a very satisfied customer!
The True Confessions of PlayMore
Once upon a time, PlayMore met a tremendous company named LeagueApps. As fate would have it, they turned out to be a tremendous company to partner with as they make our working experience as smooth as could be. They're always willing to listen to quality feedback that our organization has to offer and are quick to communicate how they can help accommodate our request(s). They're product is fantastic, and the customer service team is our of this world. We're lucky to continue on this journey with such a great professional partner, and we look forward to many more years of working with them!

LeagueApps was easy to implement especially with the help of their Launch Coach
I have implemented a couple different software and Apps into my businesses. Most programs when sold to you sound like they are easy to implement and are not. I was pleasantly surprised at how fast and easy it was to get up and running.
Using the App is easy and most importantly it has saved me an enormous amount of time. A normally multi step, time consuming addition of information, payment collection, paperwork, waivers, etc., has all been streamlined by this App. Now I have much more time to get more work done.
If you want a great value for your dollar, an easy to use App and save time to do other tasks I highly recommend using LeagueApps.
League Apps Review
- Very helpful customer service team
- mobile friendly is a huge plus
- easy to create events, teams, tournaments registrations
- automated registration emails to customers
- great widgets and registration links
- great site design team
- payment systems are difficult to work with (not enough options for refunds, partial refunds, billing adjustments - having to manually adjust the amount billed after refunds from overpayments leaves lots of room for error)
- can't store customer credits for future use
- can't store customer credit card info
- can't transfer $ from one customer to another or within a family account
I was already using this with another league. That is one of the reasons I switched for my club
Just found out today that I do not receive any email notifications when a product is ordered. It would be time consuming to have to check the report daily. And of course if I do not check it and someone ordered something I would not know. Also found out that if someone were to order multiple products they have to pay for all of them separately? I can't put my customers through doing that each time so I will have to order off line which is more time consuming for me and no money for you guys? I like the site and the customer service from you guys is great. Need to do more development work for the product side for sure. Thanks.
Best Sports Registration System I've Seen
I am continually impressed by the high level of coding and user flexibility that League Apps offers. It is one of the simplest yet most flexible sports registration system that I've experienced in my four years of serving as a sports admin utilizing several CMS-type platforms.
Their support is top of the line and I wish it was the standard for the industry. Their people think innovatively and seem to always find optimal solutions for some very convoluted registration problems.
Easy to use, excellent support, very happy with the product
I was very new to this website in Feb 2016. A bit overwhelming at first with all that I was requested to do by the league. A quick call to support and a few emails later, I was making and completing all needed updates for the website. They have docs and videos that also help. Very responsive and helpful support staff. In more than one situation they provided excellent and timely solutions and answers. Good product. Very helpful website and easy to manage.
Customer Service you can count on!
LeagueApps has dramatically increased the organization and efficiency within our league. The 2 aspects that have helped us the most are the ability to export reports in Excel and the attentive customer service team. LeagueApps provides customer care in a variety of ways including webinars, training sessions, and emails/phone calls that are promptly responded too! A big thanks to Emily for helping us get our ducks in a row for the upcoming season!
Regarding the calendar. You currently have a monthly and weekly repeating feature but do not have a "daily" repeating feature. Is that going to happen soon? For example, I have a program that runs from monday - thursday from 9am - 3pm. With the current system I have to individually input the days in one by one. With a daily repeating feature I would be able to do it in one setting. I hope this feature is coming soon. Thanks
Experience was great. Once I went through it a bunch and got familiar, it was easy (So far)
It's definitely a lot of information to digest, but using just the tools I need makes it easy. Once my business expands and I need other tools within the program, I will definitely use them
Stephanie was great. Her explanation and availability could not have been better. I'm looking forward in using the programs and seeing what other tools within the program I can use to make my business run more easily.
Easy to use. Very detailed and user friendly.
Only pros here, no cons to speak of! Everything has been easy to use. LeagueApps software is by far the easiest and best. The staff rocks and makes it a great experience! 110% happy using LeagueApps! (Thanks Asaf, Michael B., and David)
