US Youth Soccer
National Soccer Association Leverages New Online Platform for Youth
US Youth Soccer is both the largest member of the U.S. Soccer Federation and national association for soccer in the U.S. This non-profit organization fosters physical and mental growth through soccer. US Youth Soccer’s previous website was difficult to navigate, so Americaneagle.com added an improved navigation bar. The new design needed to include a multimedia section and optimize sponsorship impact on high traffic pages such as the “Find a Club in Your Area” tool. Americaneagle.com implemented idev® CMS (Content Management System) to allow staff to easily add news and events. US Youth Soccer is able to cross-syndicate this information to the 39 state soccer association members that also chose Americaneagle.com to develop their websites.
Americaneagle.com also developed a Tournament Manager, an E-learning course management tool for coaches, and an intranet for state administrators to manage their work. Traffic to the site has increased tremendously and US Youth Soccer has named Americaneagle.com their “Official Technology Partner.” Americaneagle.com has also since completed a vendor marketplace and kid-centric multimedia and entertainment portal for US Youth Soccer.
“Choosing an experienced, stable website developer to design, develop, host and maintain our website was crucial. Thankfully, we went with Americaneagle.com. They had the experience and knowledge to coordinate with our associations, leagues and 3 million members.”
