Board approval was granted on June 9, 2018 to move to the SportsEngine Member Management System (MMRS) for Phase 2 of the three phase implementation plan. Effective for the Outdoor 2019 season and for all seasons thereafter, SportsEngine’s MMRS will be the official record of registration for Ontario Soccer.
In order to facilitate the smoothest transition possible to the new MMRS platform, two primary districts will commence the onboarding process and conduct live interaction with the new platform from November 2018 to January 2019. Durham Region Soccer Association (DRSA) was selected for their high volume of current SportsEngine users and South West Region Soccer Association (SWRSA) was selected due to their representative spectrum of Clubs in relation to the user types across the province.
These two Districts have agreed to work closely with SportsEngine during the initial launch of the system with real-life scenarios and provide direct, frequent feedback on the product and user experience prior to the full transition to the new platform by all Clubs, Academies and Districts across Ontario.
SportsEngine Technical Staff will be working live with DRSA, SWRSA and their Clubs to monitor and support as needed during this initial onboarding of the MMRS platform.
To ensure that there are no gaps in service while the two Districts and their Clubs work in the new SportsEngine MMRS system from November 2018 to January 2019, the remaining 19 Districts will maintain their registration and competitive rostering needs in AIMS temporarily for their initial Outdoor 2019 data. This solution is only temporary to ensure that all Clubs and Districts have the tools they need to provide rosters and registration reports from November 2018 to January 2019 until we move all Districts, Clubs and Academies across the province to the SportsEngine MMRS for full Outdoor 2019 registration needs.
There will be further communication from Ontario Soccer in coordination with SportsEngine and your District Associations with respect to the next steps in the transition timeline from AIMS to SportsEngine for Outdoor 2019 data.
Subsequent to the initial onboarding of Clubs within the two initial District Association; DRSA and SWRSA, slated to be completed in January 2019, all initial registration data for Outdoor 2019 that was entered in AIMS will be moved into the SportsEngine MMRS as everyone is transitioned to the new system.
For members of DRSA and SWRSA, a separate communication will follow shortly directly from SportsEngine.
All data for Indoor 2018/2019 will be entered or uploaded in AIMS by all Clubs, Districts and Academies as previously communicated.
