Providing expertise to the Youth Sports community for over 26 years
Leading you down the path toward effective, streamlined solutions that serve the needs of all your members.
Demosphere is a privately-owned, family run organization that has been providing expertise to the youth sports community for over 26 years. Our roots go back to a time before World Cup ‘94 USA, before the soccer boom of today, before the Internet.
Our founder, Jay Baker, has had a long history of technical pioneering and used this prowess to quickly propel Demosphere to the top of the soccer world, where he became the chairman of the World Cup Volunteer Technology Task Force. Consulting with FIFA, and contributing to work for the founding of MLS in 1996 spawned the invention of web-based products that have been used by the greater soccer community for decades.
Since the early days, our mission has led us down the path of continuous improvement - pushing the boundaries on providing leading-edge technology to meet the ever-growing needs of the youth sports community.
