It is common across the industry for service providers to charge fees. The benefit of the Sports Connect pricing model is that it is $3 fee per transaction, as opposed to a $3 per player per activity fee (which is generally what is charged by other providers). This means parents who are signing up multiple children will only need to pay the service fee once upon checkout. Please note that with automatic recurring billing plans the service fee will be charged per transaction. For paper registrations with check or cash payment, the $3 service fee will still apply and will be deducted from weekly disbursement to the league.
A new pricing structure was put into effect on January 3, 2020. Little League and Sports Connect worked hard to offer leagues competitive and exclusive pricing. Sports Connect will continue to provide the best youth sports management product on the market through innovation and the highest level of support for our partners, which requires significant investment and resources. Upon joining the Stack Sports team, Sports Connect became part of an expansive ecosystem of tools that supports athletes, clubs, and associations from top to bottom every season. We are excited about the added value this will bring to your organization.
As of January 2020, Sports Connect transitioned to a new pricing model. While a credit card processing fee has always been in place, however, that will increase slightly to 3.4% on June 1, 2020. The 3.4% processing is a lower rate than the standard 3.99% rate offered to other leagues.
The credit card processing rate is paid by the local league, as it is with your existing account.
