Round Rock Volleyball Is Ahead of the Game by Using BoosterHub MVP
After each sports season, the coaching staff gets together to review what went well and what they can do better next year. Often, coaches will turn to league winners for inspiration. During this process, they analyze film, look at stats, and explore ways to incorporate these insights into their own coaching strategies.
Your athletic booster club can apply these same principles to get better at fundraising during the off-season. On that note, let’s turn our attention to the Round Rock Volleyball booster club and how they’re delivering for student athletes with BoosterHub.
What Is BoosterHub?
BoosterHub is a feature-laden booster club management platform designed specifically for ABCs. As a dedicated solution, BoosterHub contains everything Round Rock Volleyball needed to revamp its athletic booster club.
Our tools and features include:
Concessions payment processing tools
Public and private calendars
Online fundraising campaign management
Secure communication tools
BoosterHub also has an affordable, three-tier pricing model so your club can access the particular features it needs to support its fundraising efforts.
How Round Rock Volleyball Gained a Competitive Edge with BoosterHub
The Round Rock Volleyball Club recently put a new board in place. As part of the transition, incoming board members wanted to replace their existing club management tools with BoosterHub. Specifically, they opted to go with BoosterHub MVP, one of our most comprehensive offerings.
With BoosterHub MVP, Round Rock Volleyball completed all their pre-season planning processes four months early! Talk about having an edge on the competition.
By transitioning to our all-in-one platform, the club’s new leadership was also able to:
Unify Its Tech Stack
Before taking advantage of BoosterHub, Round Rock Volleyball was using several different software systems and apps. As you might imagine, this created confusion when managing finances, planning events, and organizing volunteers.
Since the switch, Round Rock Volleyball can oversee all of its activities in BoosterHub’s unified platform. They can process payments, manage schedules, and communicate with volunteers in one convenient, user-friendly place.
Consolidating the club’s software suite into a single platform gave the new board members exceptional clarity. As a result, they can easily monitor upcoming events, share information, and gear up for the upcoming volleyball season. We call that an ace.
Seamlessly Transition with MVP Onboarding
If you've ever moved from one system to another, you know firsthand how big a headache the entire process can be. To avoid this hassle, Round Rock Volleyball decided to make use of BoosterHub’s MVP onboarding service.
As part of this service, BoosterHub moved all data over from the club’s existing apps and set up their new platform for them, making the transition frictionless.
Take a Page Out of Round Rock Volleyball’s Playbook
As you prepare for your upcoming season, why not take a page out of Round Rock Volleyball’s playbook and upgrade your tech stack? Making the switch is easy, especially when you choose a partner that offers MVP onboarding services.
Join the ranks of ABC all-stars like Round Rock Volleyball and take your fundraising capabilities to the next level.

Our Club Has Been Using Charms and Has Student Accounts — Why Is This a Bad Idea?
There’s a lot to like about Charms Office Assistant. This program has been a music program stalwart and can help schools and boosters communicate with students, manage assessment data, and collect payments.
We get the appeal of using Charms to support your band’s billing activities — the system is already in place, and you can collect payments from students and parents all in one platform. However, Charms wasn’t really designed for booster clubs. It was really designed to be used by the school or music director.
Most booster clubs are non-profits. The activities and best practices are different. For instance, non-profits can not fundraise for the benefit of one person. They must fundraise for the group as a whole. Also, fees can not be mandatory in a non-profit. You can certainly say “100% participation is highly encouraged,” but you can not require anyone to pay to participate.
By replacing Charms with a purpose-built booster solution, your club can:

Is SMS a Good Way to Communicate with Donors and Booster Club Members?
Finding effective ways to communicate with donors and members is a problem as old as your school’s rivalry with the neighboring high school football team. And just like that generation-spanning rivalry, you never seem to be able to maintain the upper hand for long.
During your time as an athletic booster club member, you’ve probably tried a variety of communication techniques, from phone calls to flyers and even email. If that’s the case, you know that none of these strategies are especially effective for relaying information to your membership.
While you’ve probably considered using SMS messaging to talk to donors and booster club members, you may be hesitant to make yet another change to your communication strategy. But trust us — SMS messaging is the way to go. With the right SMS messaging tools in place, you can effortlessly share information, keep parents in the loop about upcoming events, and make 2023 your most productive fundraising year ever.

Why Can’t I Just Set Up a Go Fund Me or Use GiveButter to Raise Money?
You’ve been racking your brain trying to come up with an MVP fundraiser for your athletic booster club. Suddenly, the light bulb goes on and you’re struck by a brilliant idea: you’re going to set up an online fundraiser on GoFundMe or GiveButter. That’ll work, right?
In theory, yes. There’s nothing stopping you from setting up a GoFundMe account or launching a campaign on GiveButter. However, there are some hidden challenges associated with these tactics.
Think of this approach like that flashy trick play the young assistant coach drew up last season. Sure, it looked cool on the whiteboard, but things fell apart as soon as the team tried to execute it under pressure.
Let’s take a closer look at why these platforms may not be the answer for your ABC and explore a better option that will help you find the fundraising end zone.
