Prince William Courage adopts Korrio as official sports automation platform
Korrio, developer of the leading integrated sports automation platform for youth soccer, has added another prominent club to its growing network of youth soccer leagues across the country.
On Tuesday the Seattle-based tech company announced its selection by Prince William Soccer, Inc. as the soccer club’s official sports automation platform provider.
The move will allow the diverse Northern Virginia-based club to streamline communications and administration of its 4,000 youth and adult members, providing a personalized online home for coaches, staff, families and players.
Korrio describes the deal with Prince William Courage – which offers select and recreational play for youths of all ability levels, as well as camps, academies, special trainings and adult leagues – as “a significant signing in Korrio’s goal to revolutionize the online life of organized team sports in America.”
Korrio integrates web, mobile and social networking to provide club administrators and coaches with a comprehensive, user-friendly online sports automation system, managing all aspects of club and team operations – from registration, payment processing and roster creation to practice and game scheduling and communications. Each user has a personal dashboard, providing families and players with tools to organize and share their sports lives.
“Our club is focused on creating the best possible experience for all of our players, and we’re always looking for better ways to deliver first-class service,” said Mike Yeatts, Executive Director of PWSI, a 36-year-old club based in the Washington, D.C. suburbs.
“Korrio’s innovative platform will help us communicate more efficiently with our soccer families, which is crucial in an area where many parents commute several hours every day. We’re excited to host all of our operations on one easy-to-use platform, and believe these technological improvements will energize our staff and allow them to focus on our core work – on the field and in the community.”
For Korrio, working with Prince William Courage is a “unique and inspiring opportunity to enhance a premier organization dedicated to much more than soccer,” as the company notes that the club identifies its larger mission as contributing to the community through soccer.
PWSI provides club scholarships to more than 175 financially needy youth every year, ensuring a quality soccer experience for all, regardless of skill or ability to pay. It supports numerous charitable causes in the broader community – from local food and coat drives to Red Cross relief efforts and international soccer charities.
The club’s free, volunteer-run TOPSoccer program serves children with mental and physical disabilities.
“It’s an honor to work with such a visionary and diverse club, and enable its leaders to take their operations and communications to a higher level,” Korrio Founder and CEO Steve Goldman said in a press release.
“Prince William Courage is truly dedicated to its players, families and community. We’re proud to partner with an organization that takes such pride in its mission, and is committed to growing, innovating and improving the soccer experience for all.”
