    Pros
    I love the ability to communicate so quickly and effortlessly with our members. It’s is easy to setup groups for emails and then when needed you can send out thousands of emails in minutes.
    I have had fantastic experiences with SportsEngine. They have been helpful all throughout our organization's transition to their site engine, and have been there to help me with any and all issues.
    It also is useful to have the chat and messages features order to get a hold of teammates or coaches. If the few small issues would be resolved, it would be perfect.
    Cons
    It has been very frustrating so far, but we have only been through one year of use with it.
    What the heck...what if my problem takes 20 minutes.
    Lots of Features - Difficult to Use - Limited Reporting.

    Parents love it ... rockstar support ... simple to use!

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    We just ran a fundraiser through the site. 4421 individual products sold through a shareable social media link from our Sports Engine team page. We made money for our lacrosse club and I didn't have to lift a finger. They built it all as a registration. When it comes time for delivery I run one report and all the data is there.

    Pros

    The interface is simple and user-friendly. Parents and players love the team stats feature! Great mobile App. Reporting is a breeze exportable .xls for everything you want to know. Registrations can be used for fundraising sales. Can't say enough about their support team and I manage a support team for a web hosting company. I could have built all the functionality myself but it would have taken months these guys have an out of the box solution at a reasonable price. Don't listen to the hater reviews they have no idea what it takes to keep an application like this running and are looking for free software that can't do what you need it to do. This stuff works and is reasonably priced!

    Cons

    Some limitations to the size of pick list you can have them build for you when using registrations as fundraising management but I'm asking a lot of their support team to manually build out lists. I wish they would implement export to Google Drive in the spreadsheet reporting features.

    Lots of Features - Difficult to Use - Limited Reporting

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Mixed. We thought the league website looked better than our previous version. But getting data out of the system and league setup was more difficult than our previous provider.

    Pros

    It has a robust front-end. Lots of features available for your league/team website. Their tool allowed users to easily build nice looking websites. They had many widgets that allowed you do generate many different web objects on a website (i.e. News articles, league standings, podcasts and use of your own URL). They offer the opportunity to provide feedback to enhance the product.

    Cons

    Administrator interface was somewhat convoluted and not user friendly. Setting up a season, teams, divisions and games was not straightforward. Reports were limited. In our league, our commissioner needed to track specific penalties. SportsEngine does not offer true report functionality. It lacked the ability to design your own report, specify a query for the exact data you needed or specify the layout of the data. Even though they offer the ability to provide input on new features or suggest them, very few of the suggestions turn into reality. Nice feature to enter games real-time but it also was not always easy to use. Initial outlay was over $6k with annual cost around $700.

    Outdated system, that is not user friendly. Customer service is lacking as well. I would not recommend to someone looking for a Registration System.

    Pros

    Easy to review archived documents. Registration processing fee is not bad. In line with the market.

    Cons

    The accounting function is outdated. Very difficult to track and drill down on accounts. Accounts receivables are impossible to track. No link to keep players from playing if their account become delinquent.

    Fusion SC User Review

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Registration and player management has become much simpler and more streamlined since we switched to SportsEngine, with everything being 100% online. It has made our processes simpler and faster to work through, from rostering to invoicing and even processing refunds. As a Club Admin and parent, I also find the website to be very user friendly for both sides.

    Pros

    I like the fact that everything is migrating into one location, taking away the need for using/visiting multiple websites to complete necessary tasks.

    Cons

    There is a lack of some functionality that our organization had with our previous software (Blue Sombrero), which makes some tasks impossible to do without big workarounds (if at all). One example of this is the ability to transfer players between programs without parents having to complete a whole new registration.

    Using SPortsEngine as a referee

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Use the software as an end user to go in for game reports. After a game when there is a penalty to report, I go to SportEngine and look up the game Sometimes I go in to look at future games coming up

    Pros

    All league games are listed. Games are usually in one central location (Need good thought process as to how leagues and games are listed)

    Cons

    Penalties from games are listed in order they occurred rather than broken out by team Not always intuitive
