About Us:

LeagueApps is a fast-growing, venture-backed company that is using data and technology to build the largest community around youth and local sports. We count professional leagues, teams, and athletes as investors and partners, and reach millions of people every day through our best-in-class SaaS platform.

Our sports management platform powers youth and recreational sports organizations across the country, making sports seamless — in everything from registration to payments to communications.
