Latham, NY –January 6, 2009– The National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA), the leading resource for professional and student development, education and research in collegiate recreational sports, has announced that it will utilize SportsSignup’s online registration services to streamline the registration process for their National Campus Championship Series soccer, tennis and volleyball programs.
“With more than 390 tournament registrations each year, we’ve seen incredible time savings by utilizing SportsSignup to handle all of our registration services online,” said Valerie McCutchan, national sport programs director of NIRSA. “SportsSignup’s system has been very easy to adapt to and it has really allowed us to simplify our registration process.”
SportsSignup’s online registration service platform was designed to meet the specific needs of NIRSA’s National Campus Championship Series programs. The system allows team managers to register and pay for their tournament entry online, along with entering full player rosters. All submitted rosters are automatically validated based on NIRSA’s rules and guidelines such as the minimum and maximum capacity required for each sports program.

Our online registration services are focused on eliminating complexity for organizations like NIRSA by providing a secure and easy registration process that is updated in real-time and accessible to multiple users and administrators.”
