Most sport organizations take advantage of the SUMMER to introduce their sport to children and parents who are “just thinking about it” before your main programs begin in the Fall. It’s a chance to show parents – ‘we’ve got the program for you and your family’!
As a club, you are hoping to attract as many “new” members as possible, as this is how you increase membership for your upcoming season – but how do parents choose your club? What factors do they consider before registering their children?
There are the obvious factors such as price, location, time, convenience, and how much fun will it really be? Amazingly, there is one factor that some clubs overlook – how easy will it be for the parent to register to our summer camps and programs? Will the parent have to stand in line for hours? Drop an application off in the mail and hope their child will be accepted? Or does your club offer INSTANT - ONLINE REGISTRATION? Parent visits your website, checks out your program offerings, logs in, registers, pays by credit card, and receives a confirmation receipt within seconds of registering. As a parent, this is my preferred method of registration – online, secure, credit card, done. I add it to my calendar and don’t think about it again, until it’s time to drop off on the first day of camp.
In the past, I have also experienced registering by mail, and standing in line for a few hours on a Saturday morning. Not how I want to spend my weekend – that’s family time! Will I register again this way – if I can avoid it, I won’t go back – registering online is the only way to go!
