EAST WINDSOR, N.J. – New Jersey Youth Soccer Wednesday announced an agreement naming Blue Star Sports as its official youth sports technology partner.

The partnership,will include upgraded platforms for player registration, data management, communications systems and payments.

“As we focus on augmenting member benefits, Blue Star Sports enables us to implement a player registration and communications ecosystem that streamlines the process between the state associations, leagues, clubs, teams, tournament operators, and ultimately the coaches, parents, and athletes,” NJ Youth Soccer executive director Evan Dabby said in a statement. “The end result will be a more user-friendly player journey through the registration process.”

Blue Star Sports, whose roots originate in American soccer, is implementing many of the nation’s most complex systems integration projects for partners such as CalNorth Youth Soccer, USA Football and the Amateur Athletic Union.

“New Jersey has a rich history in producing some of the best athletes in the world, particularly within the game of soccer,” Blue Star president of national sports Eric Frazier said in a press release. “By implementing our creative solutions into their athletic development system, NJ Youth Soccer will be delivering much improved functionality of its programs for players, coaches and parents. On behalf of us all at Blue Star Sports, we are very excited to be partnering with NJ Youth Soccer and to provide them with an advanced platform in terms of software and technology.”

Backed by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Blue Star Sports has made strategic acquisitions since its inception in April 2016.

Another acquisition of related significance is Game Officials, a leading provider of end-to-end referee management systems for sports organizations.

“Our partnership with Blue Star will include significant member benefits and financial discounts for NJ Youth Soccer members,” NJ Youth Soccer president Evelyn Gill said. “When we include the complete suite of technology products offered by Blue Star, their first-rate customer service, and their shared benefits that come with the advanced technological relationship with U.S. Soccer, we feel this partnership will be a stepping stone to future advances for youth soccer in New Jersey and throughout the industry.”
