Team Rio National and Sports U announce merger to create Team Rio University

COLTS NECK, N.J. -- Team Rio National and Sports U are proud to announce a collaboration and combination of NJ's most successful grassroots basketball programs over the last decade with the creation of Team Rio University (Rio U). As an Under Armour Association sponsored program, Team Rio University is able to deliver a complete student-athlete basketball development and educational advancement program.

Players will have access and support to the finest coaches, trainers, mentors, and educators to reach their potential on the court, in the classroom, and in life.

Over the last decade, the combined programs have graduated over one hundred NCAA Division 1 scholarship athletes, seven McDonald's All Americans, and eight NBA players.

"Eight years ago we created Team Rio National because we wanted a comprehensive academic and basketball development experience for a group of passionate local players. Over the years, the formula has proven successful and we would like to extend the opportunities to more student-athletes in the tri-state area. By combining forces with Sports U, Team Rio University can extend its reach and help impact more youth players throughout the region," said Brian Klatsky, founder of Team Rio National.

Former Big East head coach and Team Rio coach, Mike Rice added "We have a tremendous amount of respect for Brian Coleman and his accomplishments with Sports U are immense. We now unite and marry the two strongest grassroots programs over the last decade in New Jersey. This is going to have a very positive impact on student-athletes in the Garden State."

Sports U founder, Brian Coleman, says "This merger is going to be a disruptor and game changer in the tri-state basketball community. I'm very excited for the future of Rio U basketball!"

Shannon Coyle, coach and director of Rio U Girls, added, "After a very successful launch of the Girls UAA circuit in 2019 and the inaugural seasons of Team Rio National girls, we are very excited to broaden our reach throughout the tri-state area with Sports U. The synergies, resources, and network that come with the combination of both boys basketball and Sports U, gives our girls an elite experience for them to maximize their potential."

Tryouts for the upcoming season start on February 29, 2020 and continue on March 7, 2020. Tryout details, location, and times, can be found at https://teamrionational.com/.

About Team Rio University:

As a 501(c)(3) organization, Team Rio University is an Under Armour sponsored program that assists student-athletes on and off the court in their pursuit of college and professional basketball. The boys and girls programs participate in the highly regarded Under Armour Association (UAA). Both the boys and girls UAA leagues generate hundreds of college coaches and scouts at their NCAA live session events to provide student-athletes a world class platform for competition and recruitment.

The Innovation Awards are designed to "highlight the gear, brands, and shops that are making an impact," according to Outdoor Retailer, and the Little Mo 20° beat out entries from over 170 other brands to be named one of only 30 Finalists.

"We could not have had a better experience launching this new product at Outdoor Retailer," said Malcolm. "The response from parents, buyers, and industry veterans has been overwhelming. We're grateful for the opportunity to share our story and help make it easier for parents to go camping with their youngest children."

Whataburger Announces $100,000 Partnership with Drive Nation Sports to Increase Access to Youth Sports

DALLAS, Texas -- To provide support to young athletes in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Whataburger announced a three-year, $100,000 partnership with Drive Nation Sports. The partnership kicked off with a check presentation on Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Drive Nation Sports is a Dallas-based grassroots youth sports organization founded in 2016 by former NBA All-Star Jermaine O'Neal. As the owner and operator, O'Neal and his team are dedicated to creating a professional atmosphere for amateur athletics. The focus of Drive Nation Sports is to impact the youth by providing the programming and resources to achieve a higher level of success both on and off the court.

"The cost to participate in youth sports today is higher than it's ever been which has prevented less fortunate children from being able to play. This partnership will give these kids access to opportunities that without this assistance would have been unattainable. Drive Nation is thankful for Whataburger's contribution as it will make a significant impact in these children's lives," said Jermaine O'Neal.

Whataburger signage will be featured within the facility, with additional Whataburger patches adorning athletes' jerseys.

A portion of sponsorship funds will be allocated to provide financial aid for athletes who would otherwise not be able to participate. The intention of this aid is to create an opportunity for future advancement in education and sports.

"Youth sports are a Texas tradition that provide kids with valuable lessons in sportsmanship and teamwork, as well as helping to develop healthy lifelong habits," said Gilbert Aranza, Whataburger Franchisee. "Drive Nation Sports is doing some amazing work to teach these lessons and help young athletes reach their full potential, and Whataburger is proud to support these initiatives."

As part of Whataburger's $100,000 investment over three years, the brand will be featured as a presenting sponsor of two tournaments: the Nike Explosion Tournament on January 18-20th and Jermaine O'Neal's own tournament, the Battle of the Best, on April 3rd-5th.

The Nation’s Largest Track Series For Girls Produces World-Class Athletes and Exceptional Young Women

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Dec. 14-16, 2019 -- This weekend's opening preliminary meet of the Colgate Women's Games was the first event since the passing of its founder, Fred Thompson. Thompson's contribution to the sport extended well beyond mentoring and coaching dozens of Olympians and world-class athletes; his self-proclaimed greatest accomplishment was the creation of what has become both an incubator for young athletic talent, and a venue that provides girls and young women a means to develop self-esteem and a sense of personal achievement. Thompson was inducted into the US Track and Field Hall of Fame on December 7, 2019.

Sandra Parick-Farmer one of countless women who trace their success in school, athletics, or their personal or professional lives back to Brooklyn at the Colgate Women's Games was also inducted to the Hall of Fame.

The Games have produced an astounding 26 Olympians, hundreds of national champions, and just this October, a number of women who competed in the Games throughout grade-school won gold medals at the 2019 IAAF World Track and Field Championships in Doha, Qatar.

Brooklyn to Boston, Newcomers and Returning Champions Achieve Personal Records!

On Friday in the High School division, thousands came from all over the East Coast from as far as Boston to set a fast opening pace. Newcomer Maya Dorer, a tenth grader from Brooklyn's St. Joseph High School, scored a double win with a personal best 2:16.72 in the 800 meters and ran 4:47.48 in the 1500 meters; returning Colgate Games' finalist Dayahanna Douglas, also a sophomore from Brooklyn (Midwood High School), won the 55 meters in a personal best 7.16.

Peyton Rollins, a junior Olympic champion, long-time participant and returning finalist, is one of several girls who travel all the way from Boston. Peyton won the 55 meter-hurdles in 8:13. Jadah Fitzgerald of John Adams High school in Queens won the 200 meters in 26.04; Alina LaForest of St. Basil Academy, Jenkintown, PA won the 400 meters in 58.97; Selah Dungey of Newark Academy won the high jump, clearing the bar at 5'2" and Denae Hill of West Orange High School, NJ won the shot put with a toss of 12.13M.

Meet Director Cheryl Toussaint said, "The Colgate Women's Games have always been much more than a competition for athletic talent. Fred Thompson had a vision to provide a means for girls of any ability to challenge them to discover their own potential. The distance so many are willing to travel, and the incredible commitment of so many families, friends and coaches who encourage and support their girls and young women, are a testimony to the importance of his legacy."

Saturday in the Mid School division, four-time Colgate Women's Games' record-holder Avery Lewis of Friends' Central in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, won the 55 meters in 7.03, and the 200 meters in 24.95. Ron-niah Wright, a returning finalist all the way from Stone Mountain, Georgia, won the 55 meter-hurdles in 8.35 and Kaela Swift of Brooklyn's Success Academy won the 400 meters in 1:01:3. Last year's Elementary B Finals champion Da'mira Allen of Northly Middle School in Aston, PA won the 800 meters in 2:25.49; Payton Drumwright of Carver Engineering and Science in Philadelphia, won the 1500 meters in 5:03.47; Alanna Woolfolk of Clayton Middle School in New Jersey cleared the high jump bar at 5'4" for the win, and Shalisha Robertson of Betsy Ross Arts Magnet School in New Haven, Connecticut won the shot put with a 9.44M toss.

Also Saturday, the College/Open division included several nationally ranked athletes. Results are available at colgategame.com/results

Returning Finalists Open Strong!

On Sunday, the Elementary B division featured returning finalists placing first in every event. Sophia Cope of Coles School, Scotch Plains, NJ won the 55 meters in 8.13. Alyssa Durant of Happy Hollow Middle School in Boston, MA won the 55 meter-hurdles in 11.59, and the High Jump bar clearing 4'2" a personal record; Sydney Chadwick of St. Mathew School in Edison, NJ won the 400 meters in 1:07.74, also a personal record; Rhia Randolph of Philp's Academy in Newark, NJ won the 200 meters in 29.05; Paige Sheppard of St. Bartholomew Academy in Scotch Plains, NJ, won the 800 in 2:33.23.

Also Sunday, the Elementary A division featured newcomers from as far as Massachusetts, and 30's Plus competitors featured nationally ranked athletes, several of who have competed since elementary school.

Participation in the Colgate Women's Games is completely free. Girls and young women compete within their own grade divisions for ribbons, medals and points.

Four preliminary meets and a semi-finals at Pratt Institute will determine who will compete at the finals at the New Balance Track and Field Center at The Armory, New York Saturday, February 1, 20 where trophies and educational grants-in-aid from Colgate-Palmolive Company are awarded to top place finishers in each grade division.
