Chicago Rush Upgrades Marketing & Gains Functionality to Streamline Affiliate Club Operations

Sprocket Sports, a modern platform for the management and marketing of youth sports clubs, today announced another new client, Chicago Rush Soccer Club. Chicago Rush, serving multiple communities in the Chicagoland area, selected Sprocket Sports to provide technology and services for its seven affiliate clubs and more than 100 teams.

“We partnered with Sprocket Sports in part to redesign our various websites and to enhance our overall offering to our member clubs. For us, it is important to tell a story about who we are in each of our seven unique communities, while also highlighting the many benefits of belonging to the Chicago Rush family. On the back end, the Sprocket Sports system helps Rush administrators and directors manage the club from an aerial view, with dashboards and the ability to drill down to more granular data. On top of that, the front end — for Rush's members — makes registering a player or signing up for programs seamless, a huge asset in the chaotic youth soccer world we live in,” said Executive Director and Owner, Michael Cockroft.

Rich Gallun, Sprocket Sports’ CEO said, “Chicago Rush has a multi-club organizational structure that is common in the world of youth sports, where a central operational and marketing hub provides resources for community clubs to compete effectively in a crowded market. Our Sprocket Sports platform offers the ability for the central office to provide marketing, support, and efficiencies to its member clubs, while at the same time giving these affiliate clubs the flexibility to operate independently and respond to local needs. We are excited to add Chicago Rush to our client roster and look forward to helping them in all kinds of ways to achieve their goals.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Chicago Rush and support its continued growth in Chicagoland with advanced technology and services,” added Luke Weaver, Business Development, Sprocket Sports.
