Streamlined digital process to ease the human and financial burden on school districts and leagues that register thousands of high school athletes each year
SANDY, Utah, Dec. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ArbiterSports, the established leader in athletic event management, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with PlanetHS to offer its online athlete pre-participation registration system to school districts, leagues and state offices. The PlanetHS solution, which is available immediately, will enhance the ArbiterGame™ platform and alleviate the burden athletic departments face each year as they attempt to register each student athlete who wishes to participate in their program.
"We are always looking at ways to make it easier for athletic directors and state organizations to run their programs," said ArbiterSports CEO Jeff Triplette. "With this new partnership, we have taken a major step in alleviating the huge time commitment required for registering student athletes every year."
PlanetHS eliminates the paperwork, copying and filing associated with athlete pre-participation registration. Athletic Directors can receive email notifications of pending forms awaiting their approval, and schools can designate who can access approved forms. In addition, ADs, coaches and athletic trainers can add notes, such as medical updates, to individual student records.
"We saw an opportunity to transform how athletic departments onboard and track their student athletes," said Joe Hawkins, CEO of PlanetHS. "We have been able to save Athletic Department staff members thousands of hours each year as they tackle this process. And we are excited about being able to market PlanetHS as part of the ArbiterGame solution."
Used in conjunction with ArbiterGame, PlanetHS helps ADs complete the preliminary step of the athletic management process: pre-participation registration of student athletes. According to Triplette, leagues and districts have been clamoring for this type of solution.
"The PlanetHS online software solution is the only platform approved by our league for online student athlete pre-participation registration, eligibility submission and transfer management," said Jerome Singleton, Commissioner of the South Carolina High School League (SCHSL).
PlanetHS is available immediately for districts, leagues and state offices. As part of the agreement, ArbiterSports is integrating PlanetHS directly into ArbiterGame.
PlanetHS develops cloud-based software to streamline the athlete pre-participation registration and eligibility process for thousands of high school athletic departments. Athletic directors use PlanetHS to dramatically reduce the time it takes to onboard student athletes each year.
