Falls Church, VA – March 29, 2017 – Demosphere has recently partnered with Rise Soccer Club, a new super club in Houston, TX that has formed this year as a result of a merger between the Houston Express and Eclipse Soccer Club. Demosphere will be providing an integrated solution for managing administrative technology solutions including online player registration, data management and reporting, communication, league scheduling and more.
“We’re thrilled about our new partnership with Rise Soccer Club. We look for partners that will take advantage of our expertise in the world of youth sports technology and use it to help grow their organization to develop youth sports programs across the country” said Demosphere’s Executive Vice President, Kris Baker. “Rise Soccer Club has the mission to do just that and we couldn’t be more excited to see their program develop over these first few critical years.”
Colin Chesters, Executive Director of Rise Soccer Club, shared, “Houston Express and Eclipse Soccer Club have come together to become Rise SC. As part of this merge, we took a long, hard look at how we could improve our overall programming and offer the best of everything to our families at Rise SC, not just on the field but off the field as well. One of the obvious decisions was changing our registration and club management system to Demosphere. The Demosphere system meets all of our needs from ease of tryout and team registration, email communication and payment tracking to scheduling. This new platform will give our families an easier method of maintaining their family profiles and payment methods. We are excited about this new partnership between Demosphere and Rise SC.”
Although the Rise Soccer Club merger took effect on January 1, 2017, the two clubs will continue to operate under their current names – Houston Express and Eclipse – through Spring 2017, at which time Demosphere’s solutions will begin to roll out to Club members and administrators.
