I spent six years on the Board of Directors of the largest hockey club in the St. Louis area. In that time, I wore many hats. As the guy with a background in technology, I managed the website. I set up registrations. I helped run evaluations and even helped with budgeting.
What became abundantly clear to me was that the products on the market simply weren't good enough. They both lacked features and were loaded with unnecessary features. They were overpriced. At that point, I made a pitch to our board to build a better product.
After that pitch, I was kicked out of the board room where eleven of my peers discussed... and thankfully approved... what eventually became Crossbar.
Crossbar has partnered with hundreds of clubs across the country. We power clubs with as many as 1,000 players and high school clubs with as few as 40 players. We've registered tens of thousands of players and processed tens of millions of dollars in transactions.
What we're most proud of, however, is the relationships that we've built in the community. We work hand-in-hand with our clubs to help solve their problems and help them run their clubs as smoothly as possible.
