As the recognized National Governing Body by the United States Olympic Committee, the Mission of USA Roller Sports is to develop, promote, educate and grow Roller Sports at all levels and to enable athletes to achieve sustained competitive excellence in domestic and international competitions. USA Roller Sports has programs serving Figure Skating, Rink and Inline Hockey, Roller Derby, Speed Skating, and Extreme Roller Sports.
Executive director of USA Roller Sports, Eric Steele: “Over the last several months, through the efforts of our volunteer Communications and Technology Committee, advised by our Website & Technology Coordinator Frank Joutras, our organization at USA Roller Sports has worked tirelessly with the leadership and development group at Team App to develop a tool of communication that we believe will give USA Roller Sports game changing ability to reach all corners of our membership at the local, regional and national level with a tool that literally will be at their fingertips…as a result, we couldn’t be more excited about its launch as we close out the 2018 year and look forward to its future success!”
Team App is a 100% free and secure platform enabling any sports club or social group to create their own customizable smartphone app, which includes a website that updates dynamically with the app.
Co-founder and Team App CEO Robert Fletcher: “We are very excited to partner with USA Roller Sports to bring state of the art mobile communication to their clubs and members in all programs throughout the country. We have a joint passion in supporting grassroots sport, and we are very proud to be the exclusive smartphone app partner of USA Roller Sports.”
Together, Team App created an organizational level app for USA Roller Sports that can flow information from the national office, sports disciplines, regions and states down to individual clubs and their members. Clubs and members will have real-time access to news, event calendars, live score updates, chat, photo gallery and many other features. The USA Roller Sports Team App will also have a direct link to the Team USA and USA Roller Sports websites for full access to all resources including rule updates, staff contacts and other reference materials. Clubs can immediately download Team App to get started on creating their own app, then contact USA Roller Sports to be linked to their national Team App site.
USA Roller Sports is excited to be the first USOC National Governing Body to implement Team App and bring the future of team member communications to their athletes.
