Organize. Connect. Learn.SportUP is an online and mobile community which helps you organize, learn, and share elements of your sporting life.
VisionSportUP began in late 2012 when co-founders Drew Payne and Mark Saltzburg decided to apply their passion for sports and education to launch the first private social enterprise network for families, coaches, athletes and sports organizations.
With the vision of impacting all communities through the power of sports, the mission to create a cutting edge mobile and online platform to help teams and groups organize, communicate, and share their sporting experiences began.
