Partnership brings training leadership and programs to largest amateur multi-sport organization
CARLSBAD, CA - January 9, 2013 - SKLZ announced a new partnership with the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) that will provide unique access to skill development and performance training tools and expertise for their 3.7M athletes and coaches across 13 sports. Together, SKLZ and USSSA will work to design age- and sport-specific training content and programs that can help athletes amplify their performance on the field and expand a coach's playbook with expert-led instruction.
USSSA coaches and players will also have access to SKLZ's training tools and existing content that benefit any athletes looking to elevate their performance, regardless of their level of play.
"This powerful partnership joins the leader in multi-sport athletics with the leader in athletic performance training," said SKLZ CEO, John Sarkisian. "And that means more training, knowledge and game improvement across more sports."
USSSA built its base in baseball and softball, but has quickly grown into the world's largest multi-sport athletic organization, governing 13 nationally sanctioned sports in the United States and abroad. Through this partnership, SKLZ will have on-site presence at many of USSSA's key events and tournaments including the NCAA National Invitation Tournament (NIT), Super NIT and World Series Championships. These events provide SKLZ with the opportunity to work directly with the coaches, players and league administrators for product demonstration and support, training instruction and program recommendations.
