ACTIVE Network Launches ACTIVEkids Mobile App

Offers Parents an Easy Way to Find and Register for Over 440,000 Youth Sports Leagues, Classes, Camps, Events, and Programs Annually

Dallas – August 30, 2016 - ACTIVE Network®, the premier global marketplace for activities and events and the industry’s leading provider of data solutions, today announced the launch of its ACTIVEkids™ mobile app, an easy-to-use, on-the-go version of its popular online activity marketplace, ACTIVEkids.com. With over 440,000 activities and events listed and over 1.2 million site visits annually, ACTIVEkids.com has become one of the largest online portals for youth activities in North America.

From baseball leagues and swimming classes to family-friendly 5k races and after-school art and science enrichment programs, the ACTIVEkids app offers parents one central location for managing all of their children’s activities. The app also offers parents the ability to set up custom profiles for their children in just a few minutes and recommends activities and events based on each child’s profile designations within a specific geographic location.

“With 48 percent of the traffic to ACTIVEkids.com coming from mobile devices, we engineered the ACTIVEkids mobile app to meet the demands of busy parents who asked for the ability to manage their kids’ activities from anywhere and at any time,” said Sheryl Hoskins, general manager for communities at ACTIVE Network. “In addition, we are able to promote our customers’ activities to potential participants by automatically listing the activity information and registration details on ACTIVEkids.com and the ACTIVEkids mobile app. Being listed on ACTIVEkids is a significant advantage for organizers who want to maximize the reach of their program, activity or event to potential participants.”

The ACTIVEkids app, available as a free download at the App Store and Google Play, mirrors the convenience of ACTIVEkids.com, while adding the benefits of a personalized mobile experience at the family-level. All current and past activity and payment details can be stored in the app so parents can quickly and efficiently manage a myriad of details for multiple activities from one dashboard.

“The ACTIVEkids app now offers parents the ability to sign up for family-friendly endurance events and youth sports leagues in addition to youth camps, classes and programs,” said Sam Renouf, general manager for sports at ACTIVE Network. “In response to Olympic enthusiasm, we’re seeing increased interest in youth sports’ registrations, and the ACTIVEkids mobile app makes it easier for parents to manage their children’s interests and sign them up for these activities. Our ACTIVEkids app reinforces ACTIVE’s commitment to helping our customers’ programs grow.”

Populated with camps, classes, leagues, and events from ACTIVE’s customers, ACTIVEkids seamlessly provides increased marketing exposure for organizers that use ACTIVE’s software solutions to manage their programs and participants.
