Demosphere Makes New Connections at the WYSA AGM

The WYSA AGM 

The Demosphere Team had a productive trip attending the Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) AGM last week. The weekend was full of opportunities to connect with current partners and form relationships with new ones. In addition to the Association’s full meeting agenda, the Demosphere team conducted training sessions for WYSA Member Clubs. Topics included Demosphere solutions for setting up programs and seasons, collecting online registration data, managing payments, building custom forms and syncing their data to the State Association.

Demosphere Training Sessions

Additionally, a separate league session was held to dive into Demosphere’s robust scheduling tools for managing fields and permits, game and blackout dates, setting up division structures, generating game schedules and managing scores/stats and standings. Madison Area Youth Soccer Association (MAYSA), a new partner utilizing Demosphere’s league solutions, was in attendance. MAYSA shared their excitement and feedback over their use of the Demosphere platform to build their Spring schedules. They also shared positive remarks with the group about the service they’ve received from our team thus far. 

Demosphere’s Dannelle Lewandowski ran into her former USSF License B Instructor, Jim Launder. Jim is the WYSA Director of Coaching – small world!

Hall of Fame BanquetWYSA

Especially relevant to the weekend’s activities was the Annual Hall of Fame banquet. Several members of the WYSA family were recognized for their contributions to soccer in the state of Wisconsin. Our team was honored to have been part of the recognition to honor the recipients and we look forward to many more years of success from WYSA.

Busy Weekend In The Southeast!

FYSA 2013Over the weekend, the Demosphere team had the honor of attending two great workshops in the Southeast.

On Friday Aug. 2 and Saturday Aug. 3, Demosphere attended the Florida Youth Soccer Association AGM in Orlando. Account Representative Mike Rosenow was on hand to meet with board members from the State Association, existing clients, and prospective new clients.

On Saturday Aug. 3, Demosphere Account Representative Dannelle Lewandowski attended the South Carolina Youth Soccer Association (SCYSA) Presidents’ Workshop in Columbia, SC. The turnout at the meeting was terrific and SCYSA has been a terrific Demosphere partner for many years. Many clubs state-wide use Demosphere-powered systems as well and it was great to continue to learn about their operations and discuss ways to save time online.

Both events have become staples of our yearly calendar – we look forward to seeing everyone next Summer!
