Minor hockey team managers across the province will recognize the HiSports brand as it is the official and exclusive league and tournament management platform of all minor hockey in B.C.
Founded in 2015, HiSports started with the simple idea that we could eliminate paper and streamline the scoresheet’s highly manual process using technology. The project quickly evolved into a small tech startup that was focused on streamlining league operations to generate value for minor hockey organizations in B.C.
In 2021, HiSports agreed to a five-year deal with BC Hockey and its districts as an exclusive and official supplier. All games in the BC Hockey jurisdiction must use the HiSports Electronic Scoresheet APP, regrouping 131 associations, over 2,750 teams and 65,000 minor hockey participants.
Adding to the Spordle Ecosystem, HiSports APP will become Spordle Play which is already integrated to Hockey Canada Registry platform powered by Spordle.
Spordle Play will be ready immediately for the 2022-23 season for the rest of the country. From now on, all game sheets will be digitalized for its use on tablets and smartphones to offer clients a better experience online and offline. Spordle Play will also assign referees to each game.
Founded in 2009, Spordle provides a Sports Management ERP to create, grow, and manage top-tier sports experiences. The platform processes over $200 million yearly in online registrations and transactions.
Spordle Hockey Ecosystem supports more than 3,000 local associations, which have over 750,000 participants who participate in Hockey Canada sanctioned programs across the country each year.
“I am convinced that the combination of our strengths will lead to great successes”, said André Larouche, former President and Founder of HiSports. “I am very excited to join the amazing Spordle team to continue building the best sport management tools in North America and beyond.”
