CARLSBAD, CA - February 26, 2013 - SKLZ, the industry leader in athletic performance and sports skill development products is excited to announce it has entered into an exclusive partnership with Zybek Sports to immediately offer institutional digital timing and testing systems designed for measuring speed, vertical leap, agility and a number of other performance metrics as seen on display at this weekend's NFL Combine. Looking forward, the SKLZ and Zybek partnership will bring new technologies and innovation to timing hardware and software systems for athletes, coaches and enthusiasts to collect and assess data, as well as deliver actionable analysis over a variety of mobile platforms.
