SportsEngine Inc., a division of NBC Sports Group, announced today a multi-year agreement with the US Box Lacrosse Association (USBOXLA) to develop their new national website, www.usboxla.com. Additionally, USBOXLA will implement SportsEngine’s league management system to share results and statistics from its events, held across the country. In partnership with USBOXLA, SportsEngine has also created a unique technology suite customized specifically for the needs of their many member clubs.
“As a rapidly growing organization we’ve had to leverage technology to scale our business and strengthen our core values and pillars of development,” said Shaydon Santos, USBOXLA Co-Founder. “We’ve been able to grow because of our commitment to teaching the sport the right way, and the commitment of our amazing partners. We needed to take the next step with our digital platform and continue offering value to our expanding membership. Our new relationship with SportsEngine allows us to do that.”
In addition to league management systems to power schedules, results, and statistics, SportsEngine provides financial management tools for online registration and invoicing, along with communication tools and flexible content management software to power amateur sports clubs and teams across the country.
“It’s exciting to work with a grassroots organization, run by passionate staff, with the goal of growing their sport,” said Travis Shives, VP of Sports at SportsEngine. “In just a few short years, USBOXLA has grown from an idea to an emerging association with over 14,000 members. We look forward to helping USBOXLA accelerate their already impressive growth with the help of our best-in-class management tools.”
Santos, who founded USBOXLA alongside University of Denver Associate Head Coach Matt Brown in 2010, shares SportsEngine’s vision for furthering USBOXLA’s online platform through this exciting partnership. “We have some additional digital solutions that we are rolling out in the coming months,” added Santos. “We are extremely excited to partner with the great team at SportsEngine, who have been able to take our vision and execute.”
The new USBOXLA website powered by SportsEngine is now live at www.usboxla.com.
