Rotorua clubs Eastlake Junior Soccer Club and St Mary’s were the recipients of the $250 vouchers.
At Eastlake JSC the club had some changes in the committee last year and the membership database the club previously used was on the computer of one of the people who left the committee.
Thankfully WaiBOP Football had imported the club’s membership data into the GoalNet database so the committee was able to access and use this information.
“The advantages of the online system are that any committee member can get access to the club information and the information is always up to date, live and accessible from any computer. We can easily track who has paid their subs and who we need to chase up", said Eastlake JSC Secretary Paula Meredith.
"When it came to putting teams together, a number of committee members needed information on numbers of players registered for each grade and they could access the information straight away”.
St Mary’s Junior Football Convenor Trisha Ball said online registration has saved her time.
“Knowing the information is correct and not having to decipher parents hand writing was a big benefit”, she said.
“Putting players into teams and sending out emails to the club is so easy now. Also being able to pick up info from a computer at school or at home is a big benefit”.
Pop-up goals were items high on the agenda for both clubs to spend their Soccer Shop vouchers on, with goalie gloves and coaching equipment also on the shopping list.
