Netball Australia has announced a partnership with InteractSport to deliver a new technology platform called MyNetball for competition and membership management, including online registrations.
Netball Australia CEO Kate Palmer said the sport had had a database and technology system in place for 15 years but the InteractSport platform allowed them to engage and communicate with its constituents in a compelling way.
“We have the opportunity to use this new technology to connect everyone in Australia – and broader – who takes part in our game,” Palmer said in a statement. “The new elements in the InteractSport system will allow us to revolutionise the way we manage our membership and talk to our fans.”
The new technology platform will provide an easy to use online registration system for netball’s vast participation base and the new MyNetball digital hub of community netball will connect people across all levels of the sport, from the Australian Netball Diamonds to state and local associations and clubs.
Online registration and management has been a big hit in Australian soccer via the MyFootballClub program and InteractSport also services online needs for Cricket Australia and Tennis Australia.
InteractSport Director Andrew Walton said the company has considerable experience in successfully implementing unified solutions that mature and grow, binding the sporting community on a national scale.
“We are proud to now add netball, widely regarded as a foundation sport across the entire Australian sports landscape, in this online partnership,”walton said.
The eight member associations of Netball Australia are engaged in trials of the new system ahead of rollout commencing later this year, with online registrations to be available through MyNetball by early 2013.
Netball Australia joins 9400 organisations with 1,885,000 participants already using InteractSport online and digital products ResultsVault and SportzVault.
