What we do
Sprocket Sports provides youth sports clubs with advanced software and services that enable registrations, payments, marketing, communications, and administration. In addition to serving as a club's central operating platform, Sprocket also offers professional services that help differentiate and strengthen the club's value proposition and brand, including advertising, video production and photography.
Sprocket Sports emerged out of the crucible of frustration visited upon a couple of well-intentioned dads who volunteered as Board members for their kids’ soccer club. The two parents were attempting to update the club’s cumbersome website in order to attract new players, streamline the registration process, and improve profitability. As it happened, that task wasn’t so easy. The rigid inflexibility and inefficiency of the club’s multiple outdated, fragmented and expensive systems brought them to their wit’s end. They knew that there had to be a better way. Thus the idea for Sprocket Sports was born.
Fortuitously, soccer dad Rich Gallun’s experience as a tech entrepreneur in employee benefits administration made him perfectly suited for the undertaking. It turns out that signing your kid up for a soccer team is very similar to enrolling in health insurance – at first glance, it seems easy, but it is actually riddled with complexities. Rich teamed up with former colleague Brett Baker and the two founded the company in 2019. Together with a number of former teammates as well as some new faces, the team is hard at work building the most advanced youth sports platform on earth. And now, their pain is your gain.
Sprocket Sport’s mission is to transform youth sports by providing innovative and modern software, apps, data, services, best practices and thought leadership to leading clubs across the USA. Sprocket Sport's current solution encompasses the core areas of public websites, registration, payments, communications and administration. The company has ambitious plans to augment the current product suite with a range of additional technology, data, content and service offerings that will make our nation's youth sports clubs more efficient and effective in delivering high quality programming to kids and parents.
The Sprocket Sports team combines a passion for youth sports with backgrounds in enterprise software, data, marketing and professional services. Bringing decades of deep and relevant experience, the Sprocket Sports team understands how to provide leading technology and responsive service to satisfy the needs of clubs, coaches, parents and players.
