USA Archery has appointed Sport:80 as the National Governing Body’s technology partner and has launched an innovative online membership services and events platform.
The new USA Archery Platform is built on Sport:80’s cloud-based sport-centric technology and will provide members with a wide variety of services. Members of USA Archery will be able to create an account within the Platform, manage their archery profile, purchase and renew memberships, and manage their certifications and eligibility. The Platform will also act as a hub for USA Archery events, allowing members to enter USA Archery sanctioned tournaments, courses and camps online. This feature will also include an event-sanctioning tool that allows members to submit details of their own events and manage online entries through the Platform.
In addition, the launch of the Platform will introduce a number of new innovations including connectivity with USA Archery’s Mobile Coach App, and SafeSport. Furthermore, archery clubs and event organizers will be able to access a host of features to support their roles in growing the sport.
Mary Emmons, Director of Program Development at USA Archery believes the partnership with Sport:80 and the launch of the Platform will be hugely beneficial to USA Archery:
“We have been really impressed by Sport:80’s approach and I have no doubt that everyone involved in USA Archery is going to benefit from the introduction of the Platform. Members are going to have greater autonomy over their member accounts and also have access to a variety of innovations that make it even easier to participate. I think it’s a really exciting milestone for the sport and we are very much looking forward to working alongside Sport:80 to continually improve our online membership and event services.”
Gary Hargraves, CEO of Sport:80 responded in kind, explaining the Company's delight in welcoming USA Archery to the Sport:80 Community:
"We are over the moon that USA Archery chose to partner with us; we've been working really closely with their team over the past few months to get this project off the ground, and being able to see it in action is a great feeling. Our company has a strong affiliation with the world of archery and I think that really shone through whilst working with USA Archery. They are now are now the third national governing body of archery to join our community alongside Archery GB and the NFAA, and we hope many more join us on this fantastic journey."
