New Website with More Features!

Sacred Heart Boosters New Website!
The Sacred Heart Boosters organization is striving to create a better online community, streamline processes, and attract more involvement from the parents of SHJS students.  In doing so, we conducted a trial this past year of hosting an online registration and payment process for all sporting activities.  We feel this trial has been a huge success.  Based on the feedback we received, most of you also felt that this was welcomed by all.  

However, we've also learned that the new online processes presented us with other challenges we didn't expect.  Many of the pieces didn't integrate very well, or rather, as well as we had liked.  We also received some very constructive feedback from each of you requesting additional features - some of which we were unable to implement without quite a bit of work to retool our environment.

Therefore, we have made an effort to implement an environment that provides very simple online registration and payment system along with an attractive website on which we can automate many of our daily processes.  You will also see we have increased the capabilities 10-fold!  The new website is hosted by Blue Sombrero - a sports club-oriented website hosting service sponsored by Dick's Sporting Goods.  The best part - the hosting service is 100% free.  

More Features!
As we mentioned, the new site is loaded with features - many of which we have never considered in the past and others which many of you have asked for.  So, please don't mind the dust - this is definitely a work in progress and will be so for some time as we discover the best use for the new features.   We will post about such new features on the front page as we take advantage of them.  You will not be disappointed!  
  • Individual Team Portal
  • Sports Program Pages
  • Better Security / Assignable Security Roles
  • Parent Volunteer Opportunities
  • Online Registration / Personal Sign-On for Each Family
  • My Account Page to track individual student sign-ups (as well as previous year sign-ups!)
  • Online Payment Plans (future use)
  • Automatic Early Bird and Late Fee Capabilities
  • Potential for use of 'Coupon Codes'
  • And So Much More!!!

Where Do I Start?
First and foremost, you will need to register yourself on the website.  Click the REGISTER button on the top-right corner of the main page.  Fill in the form the best you can.  More information the better.  Continue filling in information and clicking NEXT.  
The next screen will ask you to "Add a New Participant."  Obviously, this will be your son(s)/daughter(s).  Again, fill in as much information here as possible and remember - All fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required fields.

How Do I Register For A Sport?

Once your student's information has been entered, you should see all of the information on your My Account screen.  Below each student's information you will see a message such as "We have "x" new programs available for " and a REGISTER NOW button.  This is telling you that there are "x" number of programs that are currently accepting online sign-ups which that student is able to register for based on his DOB.  This is why it is so important to ensure your students DOB information is accurate!  

For each activity available, there is a check box on the left which you will simply click to select then click NEXT to add that sport to the cart.  At this point, you should see your Shopping Cart Details.  If you have more than one student to enroll into a program, you can click MY ACCOUNT in the top-right corner and repeat this process for each additional student. Otherwise, you can click NEXT to continue the registration process.  

You will walk through a number of screens to collect additional information that each program requests to be completed along with agreement of an online medical release waiver.  

The next screen will ask if you would like to volunteer for any open positions for the specific sport.  Simply click the checkbox for each and click NEXT

You are now on the Checkout screen.  Review this with great detail.  This will provide you with a Registration Summary, Payment Type, Payment Options for Registrations (this is where you can either pay in-full or only the minimum payment), Billing Address Information, Payment Information (including an remaining balance if minimum is selected) as well as additional notes and Terms & Conditions.  
***  IMPORTANT:  Your statement will show a charge from Blue Sombrero for this transaction - NOT Sacred Heart Boosters. *** 


More information will come through periodically...  Stay Tuned!
