SportOroo is seeking to change the game in youth sports. Youth sports has become a billion dollar business ranging from clothing and equipment, tournaments and travel, to the actual club teams and private trainers. As parents of young elite athletes, Vikki and Tom Boney wanted to come alongside parents of other athletes to create a unique community to change families youth sports experience.
SportOroo provides an online community where parents can share their voice by rating their experiences with sports teams, events, trainers, and facilities. They rate each on specific criteria pertinent to their role. Parents can also leave comments to provide more clarification. Teams, coaches, events, and facilities can all create accounts as well to keep their information updated so parents can more easily discover them easily. By creating a community that serves both sides of the youth sports environment SportOroo becomes the go to place for youth sports information.
StokedEmber partnered with SportOroo to make a dream a possibility. After discussing all of their desires for the site we set to planning. It was decided that SportOroo would need to be custom built using ColdFusion and Microsoft SQL Server. This would provide flexibility as SportOroo grows and adapts to the needs of the community. ColdFusion provides a powerful engine to create quick search capability and responsive ratings for the increasing traffic they would experience post launch.
SportOroo was designed using a responsive framework that provides a great experience no matter what device or screen size the site is viewed.
