Sports Organization of the Month: May

Nassau Pride is a Long Island based AAU basketball organization. The program was founded in 2012 with the focus of providing affordable AAU experiences to the Hicksville, Bethpage, Westbury, and Levittown areas.

“At the time, it was becoming apparent that local AAU teams charged close to $1200 per season to practice and play competitive basketball,” boys fifth-grade head coach Anthony Diaz said. “So, when we founded the Pride, we eliminated certain payments to the coach.”

It’s with this reason that Anthony and the Nassau Pride were able to make playing basketball more affordable to the Long Island community.

“We figured out that the real cost could be close to or below $300 per season per child,” he added.

We know from our partners and other sports organizers around the country, whether already established in their community or just beginning the sports entrepreneurial journey, TIME is your most valuable resource.

So clearly it makes sense to save as much of it as possible, and spend it on what matters most to you- delivering world class service and memorable experiences to your players.

Some of the most successful sports organizers and entrepreneurs know that to reach a certain level of success, they have to be experts in time management.

When thinking about being a successful youth sports organizer and expert of time management, former SUNY College of Cortland lacrosse captain and current Co-President of Dynamic Sports Management George Breres comes to mind.

An established leader on the New York sports and recreation scene, he has more than a decade of experience in athletics as a coach, director of operations and manager. He has been Co-President of Dynamic Sports since it was founded in 2010. You can read a few of his accomplishments here.

Dynamic Sports Management is the parent company of LeagueApps Partner Team 91 Lacrosse.

We reached out to George to pick his brain on how he is able to save so much time. Here are his three time-saving tools provided by LeagueApps to help you spend more of your valuable resource how you want.
