Leading Technology GamePlan powered by Stack Sports helps lift the Atlanta Braves to first world series championship since 1995

PLANO, Texas -- Atlanta Braves - an American Major League Baseball team based in Atlanta, GA - recently won the 2021 World Series Championship. While everyone watched them play each game, what they didn't see was their preparation for each game using GamePlan - a mobile game preparation tool - to win the championship.

It was clear going into Game 6 that the Atlanta Braves were just playing on a different level. After the Braves shut out the Houston Astros 7-0 to take the series, 4-2, it wasn't just a feeling, it was a fact.

This historic run was led by heroic efforts like the 3 run homerun from Jorge Soler that soared over the train tracks in left field. Soler's home run was his third of the series and led to him being named the MVP of the series.

"I felt like he had thrown me every pitch that he had in his arsenal so I just kept fouling them off," said Jorge Soler about his at bat. "I eventually got into that 3-2 count and he hung the slider and I was able to drive it." (*Reporting by Rory Carroll in Los Angeles Editing by Peter Rutherford.)

In addition to an outstanding physical performance by a superior team, what you don't often see or hear about in the press or on television is how teams like the Braves prepare behind-the-scenes. In this era of heightened technology, mobile apps like GamePlan are an extremely common tool among the majority of pro and top tier college teams and their popularity grows more every year.

"Most successful teams in any sport, you know, the ones making deep playoff runs and winning championships, are taking advantage of tools like GamePlan. In this hyper-competitive sports society, you either evolve or you get left behind," said Rob Smith, Manager, Baseball Video Operations for the Atlanta Braves. "The seamless technology and level of support we get from the team at Stack Sports is crucial to our success and what helps us compete at the highest level."

GamePlan is available to all levels of play from elite high school sports to the professional ranks and includes a number of key features:

* Mobile Distribution - seamless mobile video distribution for online or offline viewing

* Side-by-Side Video/Document - dynamically pair videos or a video/document combo side by side with our robust feature

* Video to Doc Embed - attach video to documents to create a powerful and interactive film study experience

* Go Contactless - Sync up with your calendar and instantly distribute scouting reports, playbooks, travel itineraries, and more

* Team Messaging - Built-in direct messaging to individual players or groups, attach documents to messages, access chat history, and more

* Survey - Share surveys, quizzes, and flashcards to gain valuable insight and continue growing

* Video Telestration & Analysis - Write, draw, comment and speak over video clips to streamline player development through advanced video analysis

* Reporting - Keep track of usage by athletes and monitor who is engaging regularly with your content

The Aviv Golf Performance Program is comprised of the following:

* Coaching sessions with PGA and LPGA instructors
* Access to more than 50 area golf courses - including 12 championship golf and country clubs, 40 executive courses, two specialty courses and three instructional golf academies

Emotional Video Campaign Targeting Youth Hockey Associations Stresses the Importance of Coaching Their Young Goalies!

BLAINE, Minn. -- MEGA Goaltending, a company committed to teaching players and coaches the proper goaltending skills and fundamentals, has launched an emotional video ad with a plea from kids talking directly to their coaches. The campaign's goal is to make sure youth hockey associations are properly trained when it comes to coaching their young goalies.

The video features kids talking to the camera asking their coaches to "notice them." The ad depicts that if their coaches pay attention to them; they will like themselves more, have more self-confidence, be more likely to go to college, and learn what it means to be strong. None of the kids in the video are actors. They are all just normal kids who play hockey.

The campaign was the brainchild of Justin Johnson, owner and founder of MEGA Goaltending, and was shot, directed, and produced by Sam Scaman of pixelworld.tv. "Too many times, on too many teams, youth hockey association coaches don't know what to do during practice with their goalies," says Johnson who is also the Minnesota Gophers goaltending coach. "We want to make sure these kids in the net are in a position to succeed and feel good about themselves, and that begins with coaching the coaches."

See the full video here: "I am a Goalie, I am a Kid" - https://www.megagoaltending.com/products/mite-development-program/

Too many associations take the 'cross our fingers and hope method' to recruiting and developing beginner goaltenders. They simply hope by sheer numbers that enough kids will want to be a goalie while not providing them with the support or development required to keep them engaged.

For the past 11 years MEGA Goaltending has worked with a variety of hockey associations on how to build their Mite goaltending programs. This has resulted in the Mite Goalie Development Program now available for coaches and associations across the country.

The Mite Development Program is the culmination of MEGA Goaltending's experience in setting up the foundation and long-term plan for mite goalies. According to Johnson, "we set a process in how to attract kids to the position and then how to pay attention to them and their development. The result are more goalies and more kids enjoying the position."

MEGA programs have been designed to develop and refine a goaltender's skills in a challenging and purposeful environment. The dynamic coaching staff includes multiple collegiate goalie coaches. Each of them brings a unique blend of coaching and playing experience ensuring every student receives a quality training experience.

When participating in MEGA programs you can expect to learn not only the most current methods of goaltending but also give you the time and repetitions to discover which methods work best for you. In addition, MEGA coaches are passionate about developing the type of mental skills that will not only serve you well in the crease, but later in life as well.
