SportsEngine and Player’s Health partner to help minimize injuries in youth sports.
SportsEngine and Player’s Health announced today a major integration that will help organizations on the SportsEngine platform manage athlete injury data in Player’s Health. The new integration allows SportsEngine users to connect their athlete and roster data to Player’s Health and with a few clicks, immediately make that available for parents, coaches, and team managers.
Player’s Health brings process, efficiency, and transparency for coaches, athletes, and parents. After receiving the Judge’s Choice award at Google Demo Day 2016, Player’s Health moved to The Pitch in Minneapolis to continue building their award-winning product, and be closer to SportsEngine to work on a deeper integration.
“Keeping kids safe is a core part of our mission,” said Justin Kaufenberg, chief executive officer at SportsEngine. “When combined with our secure background screening service, this integration will help keep kids safe and become a core element of every youth sports organization’s risk management plan.”
Thousands of sports organizations have chosen SportsEngine to run their website, tournaments, leagues, online registration, and mobile apps. Through these applications, over 525,000 sports teams, clubs and leagues have been able to drastically reduce the time they spend on administration and communication, allowing them to focus on spending time with their athletes.
“It’s been an exciting year for Player’s Health, and this integration is an important part of our strategic plan,” said Tyrre Burks, chief executive officer at Player’s Health. “Making sure our young people are only playing when they are physically ready has been a subjective process for too long. Player’s Health is changing the way parents, coaches, athletes, and team physicians work together with the primary goal of protecting athletes.”
The integration is available today for any SportsEngine or Player’s Health customer. To learn more about the integration and schedule a demo, visit www.playershealth.com
