Baum, who serves as executive director of the Canyon Athletic Association, shared details on how he uses the SportsEngine platform to help manage the more than 100 member schools playing 13 sports in the Phoenix-based association. He talked about how custom backgrounds and banners were created to give each sport’s section a distinctive look on the site while staying consistent with the overall “canyons” theme.

Baum also talked about how coaches from every school have the ability to manage their team pages and showed examples of teams with full roster, schedule and statistics information.

Belles, Legacy’s director of business operations, talked about how she uses the SportsEngine platform to meet the goals of the soccer organization that has more then 3,000 players in the Phoenix area. She showed how she used the tab element to help organize content on key landing pages to help meet the club’s goal of making its wealth of information more organized and easier to navigate.
