Testimonials from US Youth Soccer State Association leadership:
Kansas Youth Soccer Executive Director Bob Riggs
"With changing information needs, the introduction of many new member programs, and the availability of the latest Web technology, it was time for a comprehensive restructuring of the online window to our services. "The new KansasYouthSoccer.org is easier to use, aesthetically appealing and provides greater flexibility for future growth. It will vastly improve the member experience as we move forward into new dimensions of digital services. I am extremely proud of it. Americaneagle.com's expertise has been terrific in helping our staff create an exciting and beautiful website."
Georgia Soccer Executive Director Rick Skirvin
"This is Georgia Soccer's fourth website in 12 years. Each one has been progress, and our new Americaneagle.com solution is far and away the best website that we have had. The functionality and graphical appeal have been well received by our members with many, many positive comments. American Eagle is the first Web company that we have worked with that could also build the process management tools to virtually eliminate our need for paper administration with the goal to make it easier for our members to process forms and taking hours away from normal staff administration. Americaneagle made our launch really easy and effective and worked closely with our staff to make sure we had the right product at launch time."
Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer CEO Chris Branscome
"This is our first website redesign in more than five years. Our new site is much more dynamic and interactive with video, blogs and feature stories on the Eastern Pennsylvania soccer community. The new Americaneagle.com platform enables us to update content frequently and in a consistent manner to give our membership access to new e-newsletters and content. The new EPYSA.org is not only attractive but easy to navigate. It gives our organization a powerful way to connect and communicate with our membership."
