Photo-Sharing Site for sharing within several different groups?

I run a youth sports league and want to use a photo-sharing site that will allow families to quickly upload and share photos with others. We use TeamSnap for communication and scheduling, but there is a limitation that parents can only upload photos to their team. I want the ability to share across teams/divisions.

I started to sign up for Flickr but found out that @yahoo.com accounts required. expected, but I want to avoid sites that require email-based logins to a specific domain. I also want to avoid "auto-sync" sites - I want users to pick & choose pictures to upload. Unique login

Anyone ever heard of "cluster.co"?

The usual suspects would be:
Flickr
Google Photos
Photo Bucket
Smug Mug.

Flickr's pools would be great but you have all the yahoo crap to put up with and flick has gone downhill the last few years.

Google Photos could work well but, access control and organization may be frustrating

I scanned in several hundred old photos for the family and chose Google over the others. Picasa is discontinued, but I used it to organize locally and to sync (which is annoying when my upload speed is about double dialup speed when the leaves are on). It worked GREAT for that. I don't know if/when they will block the Picasa program access, but at least for organizing, I suggest it while it's still possible (if it still is). I found the Google Photos method of sorting and organizing annoying. Nothing important so I just used the "anyone with a link" option for sharing.

I cringe a little as I say this, but you could also use facebook.

Thanks for compiling the list, I'm familiar with most. Flickr is the way I really want to go but it requires a Yahoo account (we have 50+ families, I'm betting only 5-10 have Yahoo). Same with Google. SmugMug & Photobucket both charge. We *do* have a FB page but its lightly used - folks rather post pics of their kids to their own FB wall.

I'm looking at "dropevent.com" which may fit the bill. Intended for social gatherings, I could set up an event as "an entire month" and create two events to cover the season.
