It’s the most wonderful time of the year—convention season is back in full swing! After the last couple of years, it’s no surprise leaders in youth sports are itching to get together and learn from each other at sports-specific conventions all over the country. 

Next weekend, the LeagueApps team is headed to the 2023 AVCA American Volleyball Coaches Association Convention with hopes to connect with youth volleyball leaders from all over the country. We’re even hosting a happy hour for a more intimate gathering of leaders just outside the convention center—you can RSVP here. Other conventions coming up this season include: 

Why Conventions are Important

Youth sports is an extremely social industry—but unfortunately it’s not common to have opportunities to connect with youth sports leaders on a professional level off the field. We all have the same goal of creating quality experiences for kids and in order to do that, it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest technology and trends in youth sports. Here are 3 reasons you should consider attending a youth sports convention in 2023:

  1. Stay up to date on youth sports technology

Technology has changed the way youth sports operate, and attending a convention is a great opportunity to learn what tech you should be using to run your organization. For example, we’ll have booths at all of the upcoming conventions—baseball, football, soccer, and lacrosse—to walk visitors through our solutions for registration, communication, rosters, scheduling, and more. Set up time to speak with us at your respective convention:


  1. Network with and learn from other leaders in the industry 

There will be plenty of opportunities to talk to other leaders in your respective sport to ask them questions about how they solve problems, get their opinion on changes in the industry, and make lasting relationships with people who share a common mission. 

We’re typically host happy hours and socials conventions to give you an opportunity to socialize and hang out in a fun, laid back setting at some of the coolest spots in the cities!

  1. Hear from youth sports thought leaders 

The roster of speakers at each convention is a huge reason leaders choose to attend conventions.

Don’t miss out on a unique opportunity to soak in all youth baseball, football, soccer, or lacrosse have to offer and start your ’23-24 season off strong and prepared. If you plan to attend a convention, set up time to talk with us so we can help you plan for 2024!
