Courtney Coacher

This is just perfect

2017-02-07

Now we have an app where parents can have all the info regarding their kids sporting or fun activities. It is very easy to send out the necessary information on schedules and any new activity coming up.

Pros

Secure online payments. Can be accessed from any platform app, mobile browser, and computer.

Cons

parents still feel the need to call in getting them used to it may take a while.

You get what you pay for

2019-02-23

Customer service was quick and efficient and they made our organization feel special by upgrading us for free.

Pros

I like that it's cheap, easy integration with Stripe, easy to customize registration form / process. Easy to download information of participants.

Cons

Weird that you have to create event first then a separate registration: It should all be in one.

Recommendations to others considering PlayyOn

I think hand to hand sales will get many more users and clubs on board. Later down the road the marketing and wording will be easier to get traction. How can the software attract more kids? Kids drive apps. The parents and admin will use it because it is easier for them to follow their kids as well as other sports programs. Love this software and believe in the people behind the MAGIC!

Hey Alejandro!

Thanks for your honest feedback and review. :) We've come a long way in the past year, included adding the features you've recommended. Now we have Calendar syncing, improved photos and added a customer service team. We've also been working hard to keep bugs to a minimum.

Always love the feedback, feel free to reach out anytime.

Hi Rebecca.
Thank you for your review. Actually we do allow group and team registrations. Team captains CAN invite players to join and pay. That is the basis of ALL our customizable registration forms.
It is true, that our league standing page is not released yet, but that doesn't take away from the fact that you can still publish schedules and you can use the news feed to give standings.
Best,
PlayyOn Team

Hi Jason,
Sorry you didn't like our functionality. I loved the webpage you set up and all the registrations: https://www.playyon.com/tsl/
We default to children leagues, but there is the option for adult leagues too. Sorry again that you didn't see that. Just reach out to our customer service if you need assistance.
You are yet to try the schedule, database and messaging features. Again, let us know if we can assist.
Respectfully.

I wish the design was a little more elegant and easy on the users eyes.

I reccommend it! It works and makes life easier

2019-02-09

I run 5-6 teams each quarter. Can't imagine my life without it.

Pros

It takes minutes to sign up a kid and makes communication during the season a lot easier. Upgrade to Premium if you're running more than one team.

Cons

Little confusing at first, but the online support works really hard to resolve all problems and answer all questions.
