The industry leader in integrated software and payment solutions for youth sports organizations with over 25 million users in 23 countries, Blue Star Sports has been flexing its muscles and announced today its latest acquisition of GroupNet Solutions – a leading provider of cloud based registration systems for youth sports leagues and events.
GroupNet, based out of Chantilly, Virginia will join the rapidly growing Blue Star Sports family of companies located across the United States and Canada.
