Sports Illustrated and Time Inc are one the recent players to enter the youth sports market — helping leagues, coaches, parents and young players better manage their youth sports experience. The folks at SI Play recently dropped a walkthrough video of their new mobile app and there are some cool features for parents to check out. I am particularly excited about the Players Cards and Family Schedule features.
Throughout the season it’s still a pretty clunky activity to take pictures and videos of players and moments and share them with other parents. It will be cool to see these images all contained and contextual within the app and tagged by player.
Also, with multiple kids on multiple teams it will be helpful to see those schedules and games in context of each other to help parents manage drop-offs and pickups a little better.
Excited to see how these features adopted this fall when the seasons really kick off.
