An exciting new sports partnership has been launched which will see FirstPoint USA’s student-athletes benefiting from performance data and tracking provided by leading wearable tech brand, STATSports.
Both market leaders in their respective fields, the two brands have joined forces to improve the performance of clients heading to the United States on sports scholarships and allow college and university coaches to monitor and track the data of prospective athletes.
The most advanced wearable tech in the performance sports market will also be provided to players taking part in FirstPoint USA’s football and rugby trials throughout the year, providing FirstPoint USA’s coaches with data and insights that they can measure against players already competing at each level of collegiate sport in the US.
Worn by some of football's leading stars, including England men’s captain Harry Kane, USA women’s captain Megan Rapinoe and Chelsea striker Raheem Sterling, STATSports is the most powerful GPS player tracker for individuals, capturing match and practice performance data. The official performance data tracker of Arsenal FC, the tech is also used by leading coaches and performance analysts around the world.
“We are very excited to be launching a new partnership with STATSports which will be a fantastic benefit to FirstPoint USA clients. As the market leader in wearable tech, they are a brand that our own ambitions are very much aligned to and one which will be a hugely positive association for us.” said Ross Duncan, FirstPoint USA’s Chief Marketing Officer.
“The partnership with STATSports will add great value to our Talent Management team in working with US coaches, allowing us to share insights and performance data on our clients, and creating an additional marketing tool when it comes to promoting prospective student-athletes to our network of coaches across the US.”
One of the additional benefits FirstPoint USA’s clients will enjoy is the ability to compare their performance data with top-level players already out in the States, highlighting the areas of fitness they need to improve on to attain those levels. FirstPoint USA clients will also be able to compete with each other on exclusive leaderboards, which will add an element of fun and competition.
“The team at STATSports is delighted to be supporting FirstPoint USA as our exclusive sports scholarship partner and the relationship is a great fit for us.” added David Tweed, Marketing Director for STATSports.
“We want to support aspiring athletes on their US scholarship journeys and our tech will be of great benefit in helping those athletes improve their performance and reach the levels of fitness required to compete at the top levels of US collegiate sport. We also want to engage with more coaches in the US, and FirstPoint USA’s fantastic network of colleges and universities will be valuable in expanding our reach.”
Every FirstPoint USA signed athlete on the Professional or Elite service will receive a STATSports Apex Coach Series GPS performance tracker and branded vest as part of their welcome package.
