As is was a student, I played basketball and was member of the committee. I saw the need for a simple club management software that provides a nice community portal to help the club grow.
What it does
My web-based software handles players registration, invoicing, games listing, staff management, smart groups emailing, and many other stuffs.
How I built it
I built it step by step on my own with PHP & MySQL, dynamizing the whole with jQuery
Challenges I ran into
Implementing a reliable game results and schedules scrapers was though. Making it user-friendly to non-IT expert was also fun.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The club now runs 200 members with 1000 games a year with only 10 committee members. Automatization of tasks made it possible.
What I learned
Iterate, iterate, and always collect user feedback.
What's next for Emilia Sports
Making it compatible with many different sports.
