United Premier Soccer League Announces Business Partnership with YSCindex


Sports Club Data Measurement & Analysis Experts Now Official Partner of the UPSL

September 16, 2019 – Los Angeles – The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is pleased to announce a business partnership with YSCindex (Youth Sports Club Index).

Developed by Dr. Michael Warech, CEO of Warech Associates, LLC, the YSCindex is an innovative and powerful online survey management tool used by sports clubs across the United States. Leveraging an exclusive rating model, club members are given the opportunity to provide feedback to club leadership in the pursuit of an engaging youth sports experience.

The YSCindex measures six critical components of club success, and this comprehensive assessment of the overall club brand and performance provides detailed data upon which leaders can build and refine both strategic and operational plans for their clubs.

United Premier Soccer League Communications Director Dennis Pope said, "We are excited to announce our new partnership with Warech Associates, and the YSCindex, as the UPSL's official club data measurement and analytics mechanism. YSCindex has quickly become the premier sports club measurement tool on the market, and the aspects of club performance which are measured through the YSCindex are key to understanding and driving continuous improvement. This is true not just for individual teams and clubs but for the league, as an enterprise, and as the league's Communications Director, it's very important to see UPSL member clubs measure themselves and take advantage of this opportunity for enhancement and analysis of their businesses. I think this partnership with YSCindex continues to prove that the UPSL is here to assist member clubs, and we are very pleased to have reached this agreement with Warech Associates."

As part of the partnership, an initial pilot will be conducted with a select number of UPSL member clubs this Fall. Each pilot club will receive a full consultation with Dr. Warech, who will debrief their feedback report and offer up a set of recommendations. Additionally, the pilot data will provide the league with a view from individual club members as to the overall quality and effectiveness of their clubs. Lastly, these data points will provide the opportunity to begin sharing best practices across the league.

Every UPSL member team will have access to the YSCindex's full range of services at affordable UPSL member-only pricing,

Dr. Michael Warech, CEO of Warech Associates and developer of the industry-leading YSCindex said, "We are proud and thrilled to partner with the UPSL, the fastest growing and most aggressive soccer league in the United States. Our missions are aligned around a common goal, which is to create exciting, competitive and enriching sports opportunities for UPSL athletes and would-be professional players through sound club leadership. The YSCindex survey tool taps into the critical dimensions driving effective club management and gives club members the opportunity to provide feedback to club leadership in a focused and standardized way. These analytics produce findings that are key to strategy development and operational planning, both at the club and league office levels. We're eagerly looking forward to serving as the strategic partner for all critical measurement and analytics work for the UPSL."
