About GameChanger:

We believe sports are important because they encourage leadership, teamwork, responsibility, and confidence—critical life lessons that have the power to propel young athletes toward meaningful futures. GameChanger recognizes that without coaches, parents, and volunteers, organized youth sports could not exist. We celebrate those dedicated heroes and make it our mission to help them do what they do best.

GameChanger provides teams across the country with team management and scorekeeping capabilities, allowing coaches and athletes to stay connected with the team community. We also generate live fan experiences that keep parents, family, and friends huddled around the GC digital campfire as games are announced, animated, and streamed in real-time. With GameChanger, coaches and parents are able to organize and follow their athlete’s journey in a simple and powerful way, all at the power of their fingertips.

GameChanger is a cutting-edge technology company and the uncontested leader in our space. We are based in downtown Manhattan and are proud to be part of the DICK’S Sporting Goods family.
