In A Year Full of Uncertainty, Stack Sports Remains Focused on Innovation and Thankful for Its Strong Partners

PLANO, Texas -- After a record first quarter for Stack Sports, the novel coronavirus took the United States by storm - closing schools, halting sports, and even shutting down whole communities. With over 95% of athletes nationwide impacted in some way, Americans looked to find the way forward. Companies like Stack Sports looked to act quickly to help serve their more than 20 thousand Partners in the sports community, representing over 8 million families.

"It all starts with the local club and the families that participate. We knew we had to act quickly to find ways to serve them, without knowing what that might look like at the time," said Jeff Brunsberg, Chief Revenue and Strategy Officer at Stack Sports. "All we could say for sure was that we were going to do what it took to make sure that sports organizations knew they had a committed Partner when they needed it most."

Stack Sports immediately took action, first by listening to its Partners to find ways to serve them. Next came the launch of Miles4My Community, a virtual event that raised money for sports organizations. At the same time, the teams at Sports Connect, which serves clubs and leagues through participation growth software, were busy innovating in the product. With an unprecedented change to how clubs needed to manage finances, the team quickly released functions to assist organizations in serving sports families. Also adding valuable new functionality including; registration insurance, club credits to serve as an alternative to refunds for parents, zero-cost programs, and mobile-first registration.

The continued investment, combined with its relentless focus on service, lead to Sports Connect securing many long-term partnerships amidst the pandemic, reinforcing its position as the industry leader in youth sports.

"We're proud to extend our partnership with Stack Sports," said Bryan Attridge, CEO of Utah Youth Soccer Association. "For over a decade now, we have worked with the Stack Sports team to innovate and plan for our future. That's why we are excited to extend our partnership with Stack Sports and continue to offer our membership best in class technology,"

Tom Arnett, GM of Sports Connect, responded to this high praise saying, "We are proud to get to be a part of the recovery story for so many organizations. As 2020 went on we saw countless heartwarming stories flowing in from our Partners. As they started to see success, we knew we were on the right path. We are so thankful to get to serve these organizations and so thankful for what they have done in this tough time."

The list of success stories from Partners ranged from Utah Youth Soccer Association finding a way to crown state champions this year to Rhyne Park Girls Softball pulling off a sandlot season to keep kids active--there are hundreds of stories like this to be thankful for.

It wasn't just Stack Sports Partners who were blazing trails during the comeback in 2020, though. The team at Student Sports, the Stack Sports experience platform, was busy finding ways to safely and creatively bring to life two premier national events. The Elite 11 Finals and the Area Code Games were held under strict COVID protocols to serve our athletes, parents, evaluators, and partners through innovative activations and a heavy emphasis on digital integration. The team rallied to deliver a world-class experience with player safety as a top priority.

"We're incredibly thankful for the athletes, parents, and partners who trusted and supported us during this unprecedented event season," said Zack Greer, GM of Student Sports.

And while the live aspect of sports is so important it's not the only place where innovation was apparent this year. Two other Stack Sports groups were busy connecting people virtually. The Skyhawks created more virtual camp opportunities for families than any other group in the country, while CaptainU ramped up its assistance for universities to be the top facilitator for remote recruiting.

"CaptainU and the team have helped me build the first-ever boys (soccer) team and during a pandemic! Right when this started I knew who I had to call so we could start to strategize," said Shawn Hall, Lincoln Trail College Men's & Women's Soccer Coach. "Being stuck indoors means online all the time and they give me the staff and tools for the job."

Above all else, though, Stack Sports stayed focused on service and innovation. They were committed to being there when organizations were ready to return to play, and where things have been slower, they continue to support the community in any way possible. A great example of that is the collaboration with the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association and FOX to create an uplifting series of commercials that incorporated videos of athletes training indoors. The series encouraged athletes to stay safe and let them know that when they were ready, the game would be there for them.

"We're proud to partner with Stack Sports," Said Josh Joshua Krusewski, Executive Director at CJSA. "We reached out to them for support on a campaign we wanted to run with our local Fox affiliate, and they didn't hesitate to jump in. What our teams were able to create was really positive for CJSA and our local athletes and families."

While this year was a challenging year for many around the country, the Stack Sports team sees a lot to be thankful for.

"For us, we are thankful for our teams that work tirelessly to support the sports community, our Partners who serve their communities through the toughest of times, and for the families that continue to trust us with their athletes," said Jeff Young, CEO of Stack Sports.

Polovolo Launches the First Sport-Specific Digital Platform for Water Polo Recruiting

PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- High school water polo athletes looking to continue their playing careers in college have a new resource available to showcase their accomplishments and connect with college coaches. Polovolo is a digital platform designed for the unique needs of high school water polo athletes, their parents and the collegiate water polo coaching community.

Polovolo is exclusively focused on water polo and the Polovolo founders have incorporated their decades-long domain expertise to create an experience and functionality unique to the sport.

"Polovolo was created by water polo people, for water polo people," says Jim Staresinic, Founding Partner. "Our sport has its own vernacular and we feel that adding value to the recruiting process must start with strong knowledge of those you are hoping to benefit."

Staresinic adds, "For example, we saw two big recruiting needs for water polo athletes over the years. No matter their location water polo players need ways to be seen or noticed by college coaches. Also, the athlete and their parents need help to open lines of communication with those coaches. Polovolo is uniquely positioned to be part of the recruiting journey for thousands of water polo athletes and every college program."

The Polovolo platform is immediately available to high school players and provides a doorway to varsity water polo programs and their coaches. With Polovolo, the athlete can build a personalized dynamic profile, share video, provide details on academics and extracurricular achievements, highlight their accolades through verified badges, find colleges which fit their goals and use the unique social-media functions in the platform to create connections and communicate with coaches. Every DI, DII and DIII varsity program is listed on Polovolo.

Polovolo is a part of a successful recruiting experience. There are many great water polo showcases, clinics, club events and tournaments which athletes can take advantage and Polovolo works in a complimentary way with these things by connecting them all into a well-organized athlete story of activity, progression and accomplishment - at both the personal and athletic levels.

Polovolo also provides a solution to college coaches who need sport-specific information about the prospective student athletes delivered efficiently. Polovolo allows coaches to find, evaluate, validate and communicate with athletes who are a good match for their program. It also takes much of the guesswork out of evaluating an athlete since Polovolo focuses on verifiable information. A unique athlete badge feature showcases high-level achievements in the sport. Badges are activated by Polovolo staff only after verification of the information submitted by the athlete. Access to Polovolo by coaches is free.

Polovolo is the right solution at the right time for the water polo community. With the recent challenges holding tournaments and college site visits due to covid-19 restrictions, Polovolo provides an immediate solution to athletes who want to share their accomplishments with coaches and find the right college program.

Area Code Baseball Partners with Prep Baseball Report on Innovative Event Series

PLANO, Texas -- Area Code Baseball, a Stack Sports Experience, has partnered with Prep Baseball Report to offer more athletes an opportunity to learn, compete and showcase their abilities through the Area Code ID Series. The platform, which is set to kick off in December, was built in part to help fill the void in the recruiting and evaluation process that was created by the COVID-19 pandemic while offering athletes the unique opportunity to learn what it takes to play at the next level directly from professional scouts.

Texas Firm Launches New Product to Help Support Collegiate Sports This Fall

AMARILLO, Texas -- In response to the national discussion surrounding collegiate sports, Texas-based Fairly Group and sister-company OccuNet have unveiled an insurance product which covers medical expenses for collegiate student-athletes who contract COVID, bringing a relevant solution to the intense national discussion regarding collegiate sports.

The news, first reported today on ESPN.com, is a game-changer for collegiate student athletes and the colleges and universities where they are enrolled.

"COVID-19 has taken a toll on every aspect of our lives, including our ability to play and enjoy sports," says Fairly Group CEO Alex Fairly. "We wanted to support collegiate athletes who desire to get back on the field, as well as their parents and the courageous collegiate athletic departments attempting to move forward with fall sports."

Inspired by the viral #wewanttoplay campaign created by Ohio State Quarterback Justin Fields, the policy is a solution directed at the need for NCAA schools to be able to provide financial protection for student athletes and their parents. By providing $250,000 in medical coverage for COVID illnesses, the policy helps colleges and universities shoulder the potential financial burden of serious COVID cases for student athletes in a cost-effective manner.

"When the NCAA mandated member schools be responsible for medical expenses related to COVID, we immediately began working on a solution." says Caleb Fairly, OccuNet's president. "We hope this brings a level of confidence for students and parents who send their talented young men and women off to play college sports."

The wheels were put into motion for developing this product when the Big Ten and Pac-12 initially postponed their fall 2020 football seasons. If a student athlete ends up hospitalized due to COVID-19, the financial implications to the university could be substantial and currently, all products which collegiate athletic departments purchase to cover student athletes exclude coverage for communicable disease.

Colleges and universities interested in learning about coverage details can do so at https://www.occunet.com/ .

Brazilian Flat Track League organizes online race for 2020

SOROCABA, SP, Brazil -- It's not a secret that Covid-19 had 2020 pretty much canceled all over, affecting some of the major events in the USA and abroad, but has also brought people together and fired up new ways for connecting and exchanging ideas, says the Brazilian Flat Track League.

In Brazil, the two biggest custom motorcycle shows - the BMS (Brasil Motorcycle Show) and the Lucky Friends Rodeo - had to be canceled, and with it, the races for the recently created Brazilian Flat Track League. Or, so we thought.

In an effort to not let the sport lose momentum, the Brazilian Flat Track League, the organizers from BMS, and Lucky Friends Rodeo got together to keep the competition going and fire up the teams and racers with an online event that promises to bring the excitement of the race to the audience's screens: the "On Track."

On November 1, 2020, at 1 p.m. (ET/EST), flat track fans worldwide will be able to tune in online and watch "On Track," the first Brazilian flat track race event to be offered online. Viewers will get a taste of how the sport is creating roots among racers and motorcycle enthusiasts in Brazil.

To broadcast the event, the Brazilian FT League will use the platform http://netshow.me/.

Anybody can sign up to watch the race for free, but numbers are limited, so the organizers recommend the public to sign up as soon as possible using the link https://videos.netshow.me/t/rNl0-BRe9ls/form (there is an English option for singing up at the bottom of the page).

"Everything changed. People are finding new ways to work, to support their favorite restaurants and bars, to be together in general. So why not bring the adrenaline of flat track racing right to the safety of their homes?" says Cezinha Mocelin, founder of BMS Motorcycle. "With an online event, not only are we still making sure the sport keeps growing in Brazil, but we are also guaranteeing the safety of the fans, the racers, and all the team members."

The "On Track" organizers are following all WHO (World Health Organization) recommendations for the participants of the race: health check booths and Covid-19 tests for racers, team members, and production crew, and lots of masks. The race will happen in Sorocaba, SP - Brazil.

Flat Track in Brazil

Flat track races are relatively new in Brazil. The category started to gain popular attention in 2016, at the Lucky Friends Rodeo event, and then with the BMS Motorcycle. With more of a roots appeal and an underground vibe, it quickly gathered momentum among the motorcycle community and the custom culture fans.

In 2019, it became an official race class in the country with the creation of the Brazilian Flat Track League and its first season of official competitions. The League has not only pushed the popularity further, with more media coverage, sponsors, sanctioned events but also gave flat track racing legitimacy in Brazil.

By the beginning of 2020, flat track season in Brazil was shaping up to be the greatest yet, starting in March when a group of nine racers and 12 people from Brazil came to the US for the weekend of FlatOutFriday and Mama Tried, in Milwaukee - Wisconsin.

"Even though the event didn't happen as expected, the time our group had in Milwaukee was crucial for Brazilian flat track. It allowed us to connect even more with other teams and with industry players. We did the best we could under the circumstances at the time, and in the end, we came back to Brazil with a lot accomplished," says Chrys Miranda, Brazilian racer and one of the founding members of the Brazilian Flat Track League.

One of the most significant announcements once "OnTrack" was confirmed, was the addition of the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 411 Flat Track class to the race; besides the traditional H-D Sportster and the H-D Antique hardtail classes.

BMS Motorcycle and Lucky Friends Rodeo

The collaboration between BMS and Lucky Friends Rodeo isn't new. Combining lifestyle, custom culture, attractions like the only Wall of Death in South America, music, art, bike building exhibits, and, of course, races, both events bring together over 20 thousand fans.

"Nothing better than combining our forces to bring to our public and to the fans of Flat Track a new experience. We are preparing a great event, so the audience will be able to feel all the adrenaline from the race straight from their homes", said Flavio Sieber, founder of Lucky Friends Rodeo.

Sokal to Sponsor Greg Biffle’s Return to NASCAR

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Sokal, a leader in the advertising world, will sponsor the long-awaited return of Greg Biffle to NASCAR.

Sokal, a long-time supporter and avid fan of NASCAR, will be the proud sponsor of this event.

"I'm extremely proud to sponsor Greg's return to Darlington and my prayer for him is that he becomes the only driver in the history of NASCAR to win all three NASCAR series races held at Darlington," commented Mark Sokal, Founder/Chairman of Sokal. "I will be rooting for him and I'm anticipating an excellent win!"

Biffle, who is now 50 years old, secured the Truck Series race last year at Texas Motor Speedway, but prior to that he hasn't competed full time in NASCAR since the 2016 Cup Series season.

His racing accomplishments include 43 top five finishes, 55 top ten finishes, 12 pole positions, and an average finish of 9.0. He'll now return to NASCAR once more for the Darlington Raceway Truck series race and make his appearance in the #24 Chevrolet for GMS racing in this event.

The race is planned for Sunday, September 6, 2020 at 2 p.m. and will be held at Darlington Raceway, 1301 Harry Byrd Highway, Darlington, SC.

AAA Flag & Banner Hits Home Run with Online Ordering Portals for Sports Teams

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- AAA Flag & Banner, the company that made headlines with its quick and innovative solution for filling empty Major League Baseball stadiums with cardboard cutout fans, has elevated its service to the next level with the rollout of custom online ordering portals for teams across the country. Their new end-to-end solution allows fans of professional, collegiate and high school sports teams to conveniently upload their image, while also managing the ordering, production and venue installation process.

Capable of developing cutouts for both stadium-style and bleacher seating to accommodate any venue, the cutting-edge solution developed by AAA Flag & Banner's internal software development team has already been implemented by a number of NFL & MLS teams nationwide, including the San Francisco 49ers and Inter Miami CF. The service is also being adapted by several SEC, Big 12, & ACC universities for their Fall football seasons, and AAA Flag & Banner is poised to support schools in other conferences, as they respectively return to competition in the near future.

"For many years, we've been helping professional and collegiate sports teams deliver amazing, immersive experiences to their fans," said Craig Furst, President & CEO of AAA Flag & Banner.

"Now that audiences have been temporarily taken out of the game, we're pleased to offer teams this comprehensive solution so their loyal fans can feel like they're still part of the action."

Each custom online ordering portal is thoughtfully branded for the sports team to maintain consistency with the rest of their marketing campaign, and to provide a fully-integrated experience for fans. Once an order is placed and a fan uploads their image, an immediate notification is sent to AAA Flag & Banner for production. The company then handles image quality control, printing and venue installation of the fan cutouts.

AAA Flag & Banner is a company synonymous with bringing sporting events to life, with its high-quality design, printing and installation of large-scale signage and graphics. With its start-to-finish project management model, the company's flexible and fluid culture immediately positioned them as the leading provider of stadium cutouts in quick response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
