Since its inception in 2002, Affinity Sports has focused on continuous technology improvements to become the nation’s largest integrated data management and compliance software solutions provider to sports associations and their member clubs, leagues, tournaments and teams.
In August 2016, Affinity Sports joined the DICK’s Sporting Goods family of businesses. Together with Blue Sombrero, a leader in online registration, web design and schedule management for youth sport and recreation leagues, DICK’S Sporting Goods is creating a single solution for youth sports organizations nationwide, powered by DICK’S Team Sports HQ.
At DICK’S Sporting Goods, each member of our winning team is connected through a common belief and passion for our Core Values:
- Driven – We play to win.
- Committed – We believe in relentless improvement.
- Skilled – We are focused, and precise.
- Passionate – We live for our sport, our team, and our community.
At DICK’S, we believe in a better world through sports. This belief has been at the heart of our winning culture since the very beginning.
Dick Stack, founder of DICK’S Sporting Goods, believed that sports play a vital role in teaching our children fundamental values like a strong work ethic, teamwork and good sportsmanship. And, he understood that supporting the organizations that make youth sports possible is the best way to promote those values.
Today, that legacy continues, with DICK’S Sporting Goods strongly supporting youth sports in the communities where we live, work and play.
Affinity Sports interacts with and assists more than 1.2 million players, 250,000 administrators and 4,500 leagues and clubs through 18 US Youth Soccer State Associations and 10 US Adult Soccer State Associations. This year through its Community Youth Sports Program, DICK’S Sporting Goods will donate thousands of coach’s equipment kits to youth sports organizations – reaching over a million young athletes.

“Affinity Sports’ leading technology will improve our ability to work with our players, coaches and referees and allow us to focus on growing the game of soccer in Florida.”Jennifer WestonExecutive Director of Florida State Soccer Association
"Affinity's online registration has really been a huge asset to our youth soccer program. It has given me more time to focus on the players rather than the paperwork. Registration is simple to set up and offers flexible payment plans to increase efficiency in collection. The time I was spending following up with families to collect payment and paperwork has been almost completely eliminated. The enrollment reports are easy to access and very user friendly. I highly recommend this system for all registration!"Vickie NorrisPoway SC Registrar and Club Administrator
"Instead of the old-school three ring binder with privacy documents falling out all over the place as a soccer team manager walks across the soccer field, Affinity Sports keeps all our private player and coach information securely protected."Rachel BolickExecutive Director of South Carolina Youth Soccer
“We are using Affinity’s interactive digital player cards because they are awesome. It is fabulous to check-in players using your phone and to score the game easily from the sideline is incredible. No one could believe how easy it was. It worked great.”Bob TurnerPresidio Soccer League President
