When we started the company three years ago, athletic directors were navigating the jump from paper to online, and our SportsHub website helped them do it. As we’ve grown with our partners, from the first schools here in Michigan to the over 1,250 schools across 38 states we now work with, we’ve learned that a website is not enough, and like in all things, time is valuable.

Today’s launch of the VNN Scheduler, Roster Management features, and a single Dashboard to access it is more than just a product launch for us. Adding these pieces alongside Pressbox and Alerts effectively takes us from being a website company to a fully-featured communications platform, powered by apps that athletic directors use to manage the tasks they already do every day. Everything works together to get that information out to school sports communities everywhere automatically.

Here’s a look at each:



Athletic Directors can add events, edit matches, and get them on the calendar, on a VNN website, and out to parents in less time than ever before. They can upload a CSV to pull in schedules from other vendors or off their computer, but best of all, everything happens without constantly going from screen to screen, the biggest pain point we heard during user testing. We built Scheduler to be the fastest, easiest way to pull a season together.

Roster Management


Roster management finally brings athletes into the VNN ecosystem. Now, coaches will be able to feature their players on the website, push urgent updates to those players through SMS and email with Alerts, and set all of them up in seconds though Teammate.

Our friends at Denton High in Texas have already started to use it – here’s what a fully updated roster looks like:

There’s so many apps, and so many ways to access them. We’ve been building a one-stop shop for parents to get the information they need from a school online, but until now, had athletic directors go to multiple places to set it up. That all changes with the VNN Dashboard – log-in in one place, and an AD is connected to everything they need to do in a day. From Dashboard, they can send alerts, jump to social media pages, edit teams, visit their site or anything else.

This launch takes us into the next phase of our mission at Varsity News Network, and we’re leading the pack with new innovations that help make an ADs job easier and bring local communities together through sports. For more information on our products or company, don’t hesitate to email us –
