I wanted to find the right basketball camp for my son, but I couldn't find the information I needed
Orange County, Ca (PRWEB) May 15, 2016
The days of parents scouring the internet and growing extra gray hairs in search of sport programs for their children are over following the launch of the online youth sports directory by Find Kids Sports. Statistics from the Athletics Footwear Association indicates that 36,000,000 kids play organized sports every year. Over the last ten years, youth sports has grown into a $7 billion industry. Competing teams and leagues seem to crop up every day, leading to a greater array of choices but limited information for parents.
Parents can save valuable time by searching and comparing local options across a spectrum of sports. All that is required is for users to enter the sport they want their child to participate in, the category for that sport, their city or zip code and results will be displayed. What's more is that parents can also find organizations that are hosting summer camps. To make the decision process even easier, the website features reviews from other parents about their experiences with the organizations listed.
Find Kids Sports is the brainchild of Colleen Connelly, a working mom with years of experience in sports. When asked about her motivation to launch the platform, she said: "I wanted to find the right basketball camp for my son, but I couldn’t find the information I needed. It was so frustrating and time consuming. I searched the internet, asked other parents and spoke with coaches but it just led to more confusion."
She added, "Searching for youth sports has changed so much. It’s a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. What I saw was a need for a single destination where youth sports parents can go and find everything that’s locally available. I knew that there had to be a better way and that was how the idea for Find Kids Sports came about."
Already, several parents are enjoying the convenience of the website. Erin W. said: "What a great site! It is so easy to search for everything in so many different ways. I love that I can look it up by sport or what is closest to me."
But it's not just parents who are reaping the benefits of this website. Sports organizations are also able to list their programs in the directory to attract new players. They can choose from over 30 fields to personalize their profile so that parents and participants can easily find the right sports program.
Find Kids Sports is free for parents to use. Organizations can list their details for free, however, they are required to pay a subscription for extra services such as advertising registrations, signups, tryouts and camps that will link directly to their websites' sign up page.
