Days of difficulties posting content are over for Liberty Lions Football

Responsive design, mobile app are added bonuses as Liberty Lions Football switches to website that is much easier to manage

BEFORE

High-level of platform knowledge and experience required to make changes to site; non-responsive layout

AFTER

Easy to add content - no HTML knowledge required; drag and drop page elements for simple page design

Who: Liberty Lions Football

What: High school football program located in the northern Phoenix suburb of Peoria

Teams: Four (varsity, junior varsity, freshmen black, freshmen white)

When: Site moved to SportsEngine platform in March of 2017

Goal: Ease of use. Updating previous site was a complicated process that proved exceedingly difficult to learn after previous webmaster of four years stepped down.

Making it happen: Booster club president Alicia Svoboda first learned about SportsEngine from varsity coach Mark Smith. "It's just so much easier for people to read and understand and find things," Svoboda said about the new site. She said parents like the fact they can follow specific teams in the mobile app. "If they have a freshman on the team, they can just follow the freshman team. And they like when something is posted in the calendar, or a score is posted, they get a notification."

With our old website, to load any kind of paperwork, you had to put it in the back office first and it was just so complicated."
