Sports SMS

SportsSMS is our free mobile alert subscription service that enables your association to send important text messages to the cell phones of parents and/or players of one or more teams, divisions or your entire association. Text message alerts arrive within moments and the cost of text messaging is paid for through our ad supported texting which also generates fundraising revenue for your association.

Traditional fundraising can be challenging and time-consuming and many associations do not have the volunteer or time resources to conduct a fundraiser. This leaves it up to the higher profile rep and travel teams to do it.

SportsSMS addresses these concerns with a no selling, no money collecting, no staff or volunteer time commitment fundraiser. Plus it’s green too!

Best of all, we manage the process for you. Your organization offers SMSnet to your members during the online registration process where a simple one page form is completed.  An off-line registration process is available as well.  

Any parent and any high school aged player with a cell phone can subscribe at no charge and agree to receive mobile text alerts as required by the Association as well as a maximum of one or two ad text messages per week during your playing season.

Only those parents and players who want to participate sign-up. Messages are age and content appropriate and include special offers that are of interest to your players and parents. All messages are vetted to ensure accuracy, value and appropriate content by SMSnet.

Members receive their message and decide to take advantage of the text offering: it could be a free meal upsize, BOGO, or a special promotion at a sports store or other retailer that evening or on the weekend.

Text messages cost nothing for participants to receive, but offers them value relevant to their needs while earning your association a few cents on every message sent. These pennies quickly add up to thousands of dollars every few months. (Anyone with a cell phone text message package can receive unlimited text messages free.)

Your association receives one free text message per subscriber per month. Use it to announce rain-outs and cancellations, special events, or remind members about try-outs or tournaments. If you have to cancel every game tonight, you may only need to text about 25% of your association. Whatever text messages you don’t use are rolled over to next month.

SportsSMS is the fastest, most convenient way to notify members with important information. It’s also the easiest way to generate fundraising revenue that offers value, relevance and convenience.

There is one more consideration. . . . the environmental impact. Stopping a few hundred moms and dads from showing up to a cancelled game means less driving for no reason and less fuel being consumed. If we can do that for hundreds of organizations just like yours, the combined carbon footprint savings is huge! A few hundred is a start, a few thousand is easy, tens of thousands is a movement. It's the right thing to do.

Never show up for a cancelled game or practice again!
