The “best soccer registration software” is also going to need to be the “best soccer billing software” because registration without billing is like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich without the bread. It works but it’s really messy.
In the case of soccer registration software, if you do not take the “soccer billing” aspect into account, the software will “work” for completing the registration but it’s going to be EXPENSIVE software to use.
Let me explain how to lose money… stacks of money!
Most soccer registration software steals your money through a sneaky back door approach and the most insidious part is that they all use this process so it seems normal.
This “thievery” takes place when you use their “free registration software” that is anything but free!
There’s a reason this method of billing was rejected back in the early 2000’s and is no longer used by any e-commerce platforms or online merchants. Sure, there are still some e-commerce platforms like Etsy, built for tiny startups and craft businesses, but I’m talking about small businesses with $20,000 in annual sales and above – real businesses.
The Simple Money Grab
When you process payments through the “old school” soccer registration software, the registration / billing software will process the payment for you through their credit card merchant account but before they give you your money, they charge an outrageous “processing fee” which is anywhere from 2X to 5X more than you would pay if you simply used a modern soccer registration software system like SocrPro.com.
This is one of the foundational reasons why SocrPro has quickly become one of the fastest-growing soccer registration software platforms… it’s the only fully integrated soccer billing software that actually uses the modern billing practice that does not take your money for processing your payments.
It’s your money, you should keep it… but you need this as well
The best soccer registration software needs to be a full suite that does everything your club needs to operate as a business, automate the coaching, and organize everything with communication and scheduling tools.
Cost is incurred not only from excessive fees but also from excessive time lost due to separate systems that do not communicate and force you to learn and operate multiple pieces of software.
Life is a lot easier when you use an Apple computer with an iPhone and iPad versus trying to manage with an Android phone, a MacBook, and a Surface tablet. All good software but it all works differently, none of it communicates with other effectively and they all use a different logic and menu flow to get the job done.
Different is Bad!
The bottom line is that the best soccer registration software is going to save you money because it does not charge outrageous fees on every transaction (best soccer billing software) and it’s going to save you time and frustration when all your club and coaching activities share 1 platform and all operate the same way.
SocrPro.com is the only soccer registration / billing software that uses the modern billing technology that all modern e-commerce systems use and it’s the only full suite of applications that do everything your club and coaches need to be successful and profitable.

The short answer is “yes”!
The longer answer is a bit more complicated but still “yes” in my opinion… and it helps explain why SocrPro.com software saves time for you and your soccer club.
Neither Ford nor Chevy can match the smooth ride or interior quality of the Ram so for the people that care about these items like I do, the Ram is the best truck made… for me!
But more importantly, I’ve grown accustomed to the layout and operation of the truck. When I get in my friend’s Ram, I know where all the controls are and how they work so even though he has a different model Ram, it all looks, feels and operates the same way.
It’s easy for me to use!
Software is the same as choosing a truck, in many ways, because it’s always a personal preference, but imagine if you used a Ram for commuting to work, then a Ford while hauling loads in the bed of the truck and switched to a Chevrolet for towing.
Things start to get a bit confusing.
Suddenly you’re “dialing to a different gear” in the Ram while attempting to change the radio station because you just hopped out of the Ford and spraying the windshield with the “column shifter” after driving the Chevrolet.
Even when things “work”, everything is easier when everything works the same way.
Because SocrPro.com is one system, all the modules work with the same logic and process flow so once you learn one, you understand them all, Think about Microsoft Office and how much easier it is to use Excel because it uses the same menu structure as Word.
You will save time with SocrPro because you’ll have one login where everything works the same, is easier to learn, easier to use, and everything is in one application.

Soccer video analysis software is not the same as generic sports analysis software in the same way that soccer is not the same sport as the other popular sports like American football, basketball, and baseball.
Because soccer is unique, to perform soccer video analysis, the software needs to be unique as well. Soccer video analysis software needs to be purpose-built and not simply a derivative of another sport’s video analysis software system with a “soccer” label added and sold as a soccer video analysis tool.
Let’s explore a few of the things that make a good soccer video analysis software system:
- Built for soccer – This cannot be stated often enough. If a video system is built specifically for soccer, it’s going to be better than a video analysis system built for another sport.
Just as a pick-up truck is better for hauling trailers and a sports car is better at going fast at the race track, the software is better when it’s purpose-built and then used for that purpose. Sure, there are fast pick-up trucks but none of them will achieve the lap times of a purpose-built sports car.
- Easy to use – Good workflow tends to follow product design. When the soccer video analysis software is built from the onset with a singular purpose, it’s common sense that the most important features will be easy and accessible without the clutter and complexity of a general-purpose system with “soccer features” added into the software platform.
- Handles massive video files – 90 minutes is an average soccer game but many games run longer due to injuries, delays, etc. This means an already massive video file is going to become even “more massive” so the video analysis software needs to be able to handle these large files without bogging down.
In contrast, American football really has only 5 to 10 minutes of actual video action so the files are much smaller and the software does not need to be as robust.
- Functional sharing – YouTube makes it easy to share a video so anyone can watch the video. While convenient, this can be a huge detriment when there are people i.e. competitors, that you do not want to view your team and obtain scouting info.
What you really want is a system that allows you to not only share the video, you want to retain viewing controls and you want to be able to share the video so others can use the source video to create their own videos.
This allows parents and players to create highlight videos for college recruiting from the same source video that you use for your coaching analysis.
- Remote Coaching – Time is always short during the season so your soccer video analysis software must allow other designated people to help you with the work and lighten the load.
There is really only 1 soccer video analysis system that checks all these boxes and best of all, it’s 100% FREE forever!
SocrPro soccer video analysis software was built from the ground up, from day #1, to be a dedicated soccer software platform and its fulfilled this mission to become the most loved soccer platform available.
If you need to do soccer video analysis, you’re going to love the SocrPro free coaching tools and your players will love the feedback they get from you.

There’s a “free soccer billing software” scam being used by almost all the top players in the sports billing software industry today but this scam is 100% legal. Whether it’s ethical is a different story but there’s a lot of gray area to be debated.
The truly shocking aspect of this sports industry billing scam isn’t that it exists… after all, it’s 100% legal… the shocking part is that this type of billing scheme was uncovered and all but eliminated 17-years ago in the e-commerce world.
Used and promoted widely in the early 2000’s, it was quickly replaced by a more cost efficient model and once this other model was in place, nobody was willing to go back to the “loan shark” rates charged by the “old school” e-commerce billing systems.
But just as “get rich quick” schemes seem to reappear in different venues, from the back pages of magazines to the high-tech venue of the internet, and then back to direct mail… this insane billing scam has reappeared in the sports industry without anyone really noticing.
I suppose it’s not that surprising since soccer coaches are not known to be e-commerce experts and e-commerce experts are typically not running sports businesses. I’ll admit that I had no idea this even existed any longer and was shocked to discover the scheme still lived in the far corners of the sports industry.
Worst of all… there are still many that actually like this billing model, even when they’re paying exorbitant fees, for a commodity service.
Many believe that since these fees are added onto the “back-end” of the transaction, that their customers (i.e. sports parents) do not even notice that they are being charged above and beyond what they agreed to pay.
Nothing could be further from the truth. They all “notice” but they do not blame the billing software for the extra fees, they blame the soccer club because that’s show they think they’re paying.
The end result is that the soccer club receives the “hate” for the fees but the billing software receives the money… not a good deal for the soccer club!
But there is a better way if you can spare 9-minutes!
Soccer clubs can easily follow the exact same model that all the online e-commerce businesses follow. Investing 9 minutes of work -1 time – into setting up their billing system will allow them to dramatically reduce those fees and keep that money for the club versus giving it to another company.

Time is the one commodity you can never create more of in your life. We all have the same clock ticking and the limitations that come with this valuable commodity.
The only way to get “more time” is to leverage automation or the help (time) of others.
There are video systems that will help you “automate” your game video but only if you’re trying to track simple things like time of possession or goals.
The problem with this approach is that it completely ignores the reality about why these things happened. They tell you the “what” happened but never the “why” it happened.
Why was your time of possession so good? Why did you score? Why did you give up the goal?
Everyone knows what the final score of the game but this “what” information is never going to help increase your team’s soccer IQ or show you ways to improve to win the next game.
The most important thing to know is the “why” for the “what”. If all you have is the “what”, you really do not have much at all.
This is where your experience as a quality soccer coach comes into play because you get to add the “why” into the game analysis and make your players and your team much smarter. Not just “what” happened but “why” it happened.
Ah yes… back to that pesky issue of not enough time to do the game analysis to help your team withe the “why”.
This is where we can help you.
We will actually break down the games for you with expert coaches that know and understand the youth soccer game and the unique needs and capabilities of youth soccer players.
When you run out of time, or maybe you simply want a 3rd party set of eyes to look at your team for objective analysis to identify things in your “blink spot”, let us help you with our virtual coaching system.
We’ll break down the games for you and all you need to do is sit back and check our work to ensure it matches with your coaching philosophy and style.
