About Sports Connect

Sports Connect aims to connect administrators, coaches, teams, and families with tools that help save time, reduce burnout, and increase participation. Once three independent youth sports technology providers, Blue Sombrero, Affinity Sports, and Stack Sports joined forces to create a unified, all-in-one solution to help efficiently manage sports organizations worldwide.

The Sports Connect solution relies on the technology for team management through Affinity Sports.

Blue Sombrero makes up the core of the new US Soccer Connect/Sports Connect business for clubs.

NJYS looks forward to working with our members through the upgrade to the Sports Connect platform. Information will be continuously shared with the membership throughout the implementation and roll-out.

Upcoming Roadshows

This in-person training is essential to the set-up and access of the new registration platform that will get all NJ Youth Soccer players and coaches on the field next seasonal year. We invite your attendance at a roadshow, regardless of how you intend to register players with NJ Youth Soccer (i.e. Sports Connect club platform, import file, or manual entry).

Each roadshow will last approximately three hours, covering the following items in detail:

  • User Access to Sports Connect
  • NJ Youth Soccer Registration Requirements
  • Registration Set-Up
  • Registration Management (Club Management, Risk Management, Roster Management)
  • Sports Connect Club Platform Integration
