USCoachesClub is very vibrant colored site based on Joomla 1.7. It features 3 major functionalities:
- A credit system where coaches can buy packages of credits to register for events/modules
- Event registration where they can view upcoming events/modules and register for them using their credits. The events/modules are live classes held around the area to train soccer coaches for youth soccer.
- The last piece is tying all the user registrations into Mailchimp so the campaigns can be sent to notify coaches of new or upcoming modules.
Joomla 1.7 is a big improvement over Joomla 1.5. (I skipped joomla 1.6) It just provides an easier admin workflow than 1.5 and the built in user access levels is so nice.
