• Data is backed up each day.

Today’s club volunteers and their younger participants are all accustomed to using online technologies and services to do just about everything. Yet booster clubs remain trapped in the past, using lawn signs, PDF attachments, print newsletters, physical sales, etc., to run their operations. BoosterPro modernizes ALL of these operations.
BoosterPro was designed for anyone to use. The tools themselves are easy, but we also include a Help Wizard to guide you through the early processes. And if you still need help we have phone and email support.
Your BoosterPro site comes with an easy to use dashboard that can be accessed from any Web-enabled computer or device. Just log in and start working!
We have provided services to a wide variety of organizations, but in a nutshell BoosterPro was specifically designed to support the efforts and operations of any community-based organization meeting the needs of kids – e.g. sports, theatre, band, dance, etc. Yes, BoosterPro even can be used for adult leagues and groups that depend on their members.
Yes! We are in the process of building additional tools and technologies that will further improve the operations of booster clubs, including a uniform builder for branded merchandise, corporate sponsorship manager, email communication tools, and social sharing for young people to tap into their own networks to join and support their clubs.

Registration Forms

Use our intuitive form builders for ANY registration requirement (memberships, volunteers, participants, events, etc.) and then you can either use the BoosterPro registration form as part of your very own BoosterPro site, or simply add the URL/link to your own club website. It works in either instance exactly the same.
Our form builder comes pre-populated with groupings of standard fields. So, for example, the name grouping for a registrant includes a number of standard fields, including first and last name, mailing address, email, phone, etc. This means you can build and publish a form incredibly fast – as in a minute or two in some cases.
Absolutely. The form data groupings were there to streamline the form building process. But if there’s a field you don’t want, just delete. Similarly, if there are add’l fields you’d like to add to a grouping, just click and key in the field(s) you want.
BoosterPro comes embedded with a secure, encrypted transaction processing engine that makes collecting fees, donations, and other funds a snap. Best of all, you don’t have to do anything – the engine is already built into any form that requires a payment.
The form-builder and every other BoosterPro tool is absolutely free to setup, customize and use. The only fees are for transactions processed through the system. Which means we don’t make any money unless you do! And our share is very small. How much? BoosterPro takes just 5% of any transaction, an incredible bargain given the enormous investment we’ve made in the technology. And any tools that don’t use transaction processing are still absolutely free.
BoosterPro was built to scale, meaning that a club can choose to use individual applications like an event calendar, store, or registration form all by themselves – you can even use those tools strictly within your own website. But many clubs’ websites are outdated or difficult to maintain. Don’t worry, we’ve got that covered too, because you can just as easily set up BoosterPro as your own club website, complete with your own branding, logo, colors, etc.

Event Manager

BoosterPro’s Event Manager lets you set up virtually any kind of event that meets the needs of booster clubs, school programs, and similar organizations. Need to kick off a new season registration process? Our comprehensive system even includes detailed medical questionnaires. Want to host a fundraising event? In just minutes you’ll have a link to share with your supporters. With the BoosterPro Event Manager you are limited only by your imagination.
The Events Manager includes a calendar tool and scheduler to let your supporters when registration starts and stops right down to the minute.

BoosterPro charges just 5% for any transaction processed through its system. Everything else is entirely, 100% free.
As soon as you launch your store – which takes just minutes – you will have a URL (Web link) that you can list on your existing club website or send to your supporters in an email or print mailing. Or, you can use other BoosterPro tools to create a complete website, including your store. It’s entire your choice.
