The only thing your really need to change is the connection string. You hoster should be able to tell you what you need to change in that reguard.

I have tried talking to them and for some reason they have no clue what i'm talking about, so im pretty much on my own.......I dont know what needs to be changed in the string, or what it needs to be changed to???????

<connectionStrings>
<add name="ClubSiteDB" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=true;AttachDBFileName=|DataDirectory|Club.mdf;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
</connectionStrings>

It is definetaly your connection string. What hoster are you using? You need to change the data source= portion to match your db info from your host. For go daddy using SQL it is similar to:

<connectionStrings>
<add name="ClubSiteDB" connectionString="Data Source="servername";Initial Catalog=DBXXXXX;User ID=XXXX;Password='XXXXXXXXXX';TrustedConnection=False" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
<remove name="LocalSqlServer"/>
<add name="LocalSqlServer" connectionString="Data Source="servername";Initial Catalog=DBXXXXX;User ID=XXXXX;Password='XXXXXX';TrustedConnection=False" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
</connectionStrings>

You may want to consider using this project as all indications seem to convey the project has been abandoned, the support is definitely not here as it was in the past. The developer did a great job in the beginning but since has sort of disappeared. Many of us are in the wings waiting for some indication that this project will move forward. Good luck in your decision.
