BigTeams, LLC, developer of athletic websites and scheduling software for high schools in 41 states, has entered into a three-year agreement with the National Federation of State High School Associations as an NFHS Corporate Partner.
BigTeams, a leader in the “school-first” approach to high school websites since 2008, develops sites that assist administrators with scheduling, registration and booster clubs, as well as offering fans and the general public the opportunity to purchase photos, apparel and much more.
“We are pleased to have BigTeams join the NFHS as a corporate partner,” said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director. “In our ever-expanding world of technology, BigTeams is not only helping schools do their jobs better, but keeping the general public informed through the development of fan-friendly websites.”

“As former high school athletes, youth coaches and supporters of high school athletics, we have a strong appreciation for what the NFHS stands for and the work that it does,” Carson said. “We look forward to this new partnership and continuing our work together supporting athletic departments.”

About BigTeams, LLC
BigTeams develops the most advanced high school athletic websites and software available based on the belief that the less time an athletic director has to spend disseminating information, raising funds and creating a website, the more time he or she has to spend with coaches and students. The BigTeams goal is to build and support a powerful school-branded website for a school’s athletic program that will help the school and its staff with administrative work, fundraising and community engagement. The BigTeams product features industry-leading administrative tools, including scheduling, online athlete registration and booster volunteer management. BigTeams sites leverage the efforts of social media networks, local news outlets, selected fan input and professional photographers, and then packages these efforts into a one-stop-shop for fans to get their school’s announcements, schedules and engaging content. The website also raises funds for the school through optional features such as local online ad sales, photo sales, apparel sales, app sales and much more. BigTeams has been a pioneer of the “school-first” approach to high school websites since 2008 and has clients in 41 states. For more information, visit the BigTeams website at www.BigTeams.com.
