Youth sports package software often generates revenue b taking a small percentage of the transactions that are run through the software by the teams. Standard software licenses are also used to pay for the software. A third revenue model depends on an annual fee per registration. In some cases, the fee is $50 per web site and an additional $299 annually A vendor typically charges $2.50 per registrant. Custom graphics are available for $599 typically.

Several youth team software vendors provide web site design tools, other vendors permit users to work with a graphics team to support building the appropriate design. Most vendors offer premium features to make them available in high end web sites. This includes text messaging, team, and effective communications capability.

A very few vendors are specialists in payments processing. Credit card processing is an important part of running an team. The teams revolve around shared use of fields, courts or ice. Payments processing provides a way to collect the money easily, providing a base for the team.

Most youth team software is available with an initial free trial. This lets people try out the web site for an organization. The strength of the software is the player registration process. Other vendors have strength in payments processing. Still others specialize in the web site design. A vendor that provides the best registration software considers it the bread and butter for the company.

Communication is a more elaborate software requirement and that is being upgraded by most vendors. Vendors work to make their software customizable. Vendors permit users to ask questions specific to the league, they can add an additional fee to be collected during the registration process.

“Vendors are making acquisitions to make the software able to provide a large set of capabilities. Modules brought in from different companies and developers are difficult to integrate into a functioning platform. Frequently functionality brought in from an acquisition is torn down and rewritten to make it conform to a platform standard.”

Market growth comes from increased benefits of organization in youth and amateur adult sports leagues. Travel teams and tournaments are in vogue. These do not happen in a consistent manner unless there is automated process in place. Automated process is just better for making a team function smoothly, eliminating vast amounts of politics. Shared resource is always a problem, having automated management is better. Once one aspect of the team management is automated, there is demand to automate all the processes across the board leading to plenty of consolidation and acquisitions in this market.

In a $9 billion U.S. youth sports market, the software for youth and amateur adult league teams at $389.4 represents 4.3% of the total spending. This is a nascent market, there is no end in sight, markets are expected to reach $5.9 billion by 2022. Sports teams will continue to get more organized and depend on software to provide increased management efficiency.
