Who We Are
Amerileagues was founded to better serve the volunteer coordinators, coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports by providing leadership, training, better tools, better processes, and buying group powered cost savings. Our team has the unique perspective of having served as volunteers on local youth sports organization boards, coaches of youth athletic teams, and parents of children who have played youth sports at all levels. This perspective has allowed us to look at youth sports leagues from all angles which ultimately results in our producing a much better product for our customers.
Youth sports league management is our core competancy, we have built a vertically integrated set of product offerings that provide our customers with one-stop shopping when it comes to running their organizations. In addition to managing your youth sports leagues and tournaments, our Amerileagues Sports Supply division can take you out of the uniform and equipment business by connecting you directly to the source while realizing substantial discounts based on our aggregate buying power.
We have upped our game in 2017 with the launch of Amerileagues Sports Supply and a large expansion of our Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League. We were able to negotiate deep discounts on Wilson Evolution and NCAA Limited basketballs, and coaching kit items and are passing those savings onto our members. Our on-line store portal is now live and will offer several types of basketballs as well as a coaching kit for basketball coaches. Members will receive steep discounts but we will also offer competitive on-line pricing to any consumer. The CPYBL absorbed most of the now-defunct CAYBL which will increase our recreational basketball offering by 500 teams and give us a larger footprint in the east and northeast sections of Greater Cincinnati. Our Cincinnati Premier Youth Volleyball league is now 81 teams strong as compared to 20 teams in our inaugural season and many new volleyball organizations are popping up to meet the demands of their communities!
Amerileagues launched the Cincinnati Premier Youth Volleyball League (CPYVL) to provide a community league volleyball experience for the youth of Greater Cincinnati. The league was launched in six short weeks and was followed up by an even more robust spring 2017 season. More communities around Cincinnati are joining the excitement and we anticipate more than 150% growth for the upcoming fall 2017 season.
Amerileagues expanded its presence in 2015 after being awarded the business to run operations for the newly created Greater Cincinnati Catholic Youth Sports league which was founded after the Cincinnati CYO ceased operations. The fledgling GCCYS relied on Amerileagues expertise to get their fall sports leagues up and running in very short order. Amerileagues provided a stable and fully functioning web site, scheduling and referee assignment services, and mentored GCCYS board on best practices. Amerileagues was easily able to spin up modules to support the GCCYS volleyball leagues and marked the first time Amerileagues ventured into the "league operations as a service" offering. Fast forward to 2017 and Amerileagues is now a trusted partner for the GCCYS and has helped them streamline league operations and provide a better experience for their volunteer parish coordinators.
After a successful first season of operating the 140 team Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball league, Amerileagues reached out to new communities in the Greater Cincinnati area to expand its footprint in southwest Ohio. More than 25 new communities jumped on board and the CPYBL was able to offer high-rec and athletic basketball for the first time. In addition, Amerileagues rolled out its new "pod" concept which reduced travel for recreational basketball teams by grouping teams into playing divisions by grade and geography.
In the spring of 2013, Ben Goodyear was approached by several communities in the Greater Cincinnati area about the possibility of starting a new youth basketball league, one that would truly serve players, parents, coaches, and community volunteers. In addition to coaching his kids in community and AAU basketball leagues, Ben also served as a board member on community basketball league and organization boards and wanted to make a difference in his community. Ben reached out to Doug Backus, whom he had served on the Sycamore Athletic Club basketball board with and floated the idea of a new youth basketball league. Several weeks later after an initial meeting was held with prospective communities, the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League (CPYBL) was launched and Amerileagues was well on its way!
