About the Sport Ngin User Group

About Snug

to the SportsEngine Community

Our goal

Create a valuable experience by connecting SportsEngine users with others who also passionately and tirelessly work to enhance the lives of youth athletes.

Shorter version

Hang out and have fun. Hopefully, we'll all learn a thing a two along the way.

Webmaster of the Week, Rankings, Pro Tips and Showcase, among other features, all are intended to highlight the outstanding work being done by the army of SportsEngine webmasters (that's you guys!). If there are great ideas out there, and there are thousands of them, we'll highlight them to help you take your organization to the next level.

We'll also keep you updated on the fantastic work being done by our developers. New products and features will be showcased here, and you'll have a chance to hang out with SportsEngine executives.

Best of all, membership into this exclusive community is free (with awesome benefits). So if you haven't signed up, take a couple of minutes and become a member.

Oh, and make sure you grab a seat in our forum. Soon enough, everyone will know your name.
