New agreement offers Bound solutions at no cost to the state’s high school Activities Directors
AMES, Iowa —The South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA) has reached an agreement to make software provider Bound its exclusive ticket platform for all state tournament competitions. In addition the SDHSAA is providing the platform’s comprehensive activities management tools to all member schools at no cost.
The agreement begins with the start of the 2023-24 school year.
“We have worked with the team at SDHSAA on a number of projects in recent years,” says Bound CEO Sam Schill. “We provided them with tools that made it more efficient for them to do their jobs. They saw the value the Bound platform provides, and as an association they are being proactive in putting our tools in the hands of Activities Directors in their state. The primary goal is to help ADs manage their programs with a single solution. It is a real bonus that they are offering it to member institutions at no cost to the school district.”
Bound has built a reputation as a single-source solution that provides technology and tools that enable Activities Departments to streamline tasks that have typically bogged them down, including scheduling, ticketing, fundraising, participant registration and more. By delivering a solution to address these challenges, Activities Directors can free up the time and resources necessary to build a successful program.
“In working with Bound, we were impressed by their understanding of Activities Directors and the day-to-day demands on these professionals,” says Dr. Dan Swartos, SDHSAA Executive Director. “We pride ourselves on being proactive in deploying solutions that increase efficiency for our members. We are excited to introduce Bound to our ADs and to further support them in streamlining their operations, increasing the visibility of their programs, boosting their fundraising and more.”
