"I'm thrilled to welcome Emma and Luke to the team. Their experience in technology and sports, as well as their passion to transform youth sports, will help us launch Sprocket Sports on a national level," said CEO and co-founder Rich Gallun.

Technology Veteran to Lead Marketing

Emma Frutkin joins Sprocket Sports with over 10 years in enterprise SaaS technology as well as experience in tech consulting and entrepreneurship. She will lead the company's marketing efforts and oversee the marketing offerings available to Sprocket Sports club clients.

"I'm delighted to be reunited with Rich, co-founder Brett Baker and a number of my former teammates," commented Frutkin. "This is a highly intelligent and collaborative group with very high standards and a tremendous work ethic. I'm excited to help Sprocket Sports become the technology leader in youth sports, as we did previously in employee benefits at bswift."

"My first priority at Sprocket is to help clubs better market themselves to increase revenue," adds Frutkin. "At Sprocket Sports, our marketing offerings are modern, bold and easy for customers to deploy. And as a 'soccer mom' myself, I can attest to the relevant messaging and simplicity of the platform. I love how easy it is to not only sign my kids up at the beginning of the season, but also to stay informed of club events, news, schedule changes and team communications. With Sprocket Sports, everything is right at my fingertips."
