Finding a stat program can be stressful. We’ve partnered with 23 stat apps for basketball, including MaxStats, Hudl, and iScore. You can check out which of these stat apps you think will benefit you and your team. If you don’t wish to utilize a stat program you are able to enter in the stats manually.

If you were using MaxMessenger as a means of communication with your athletes, we have discontinued this feature, BUT don’t get discouraged. We have something even better. There’s so much you can do with the Teams app, including communication with not only your athletes but parents. The Teams app is free for all members of MaxPreps.

  • Direct or group messaging to staff, athletes and parents
  • Engage in two-way conversations
  • Communicate with parents and athletes from the app
