The statistics that Ollie Sports provides to a team or individual player will provide a great insight for those looking to improve their game and up their level of play.”
Bryan Attridge, CEO of UYSA is excited for this partnership to roll out. Attridge said, "We are thrilled to partner with Ollie Sports. We have loved the addition of Game of the Week for our membership, and I think this partnership adds a new component to the program that will be hugely beneficial to the participating teams. We love and align with Ollie's philosophy that there are many more aspects to each match in regard to development than just how many goals were scored, and who scored them. Ollie Sports will help our players track their individual progress across many aspects of their game, and we're excited to be able to share these statistics."
As a part of the “Game of the Week” program, a highlight reel and team statistics will be released on UYSA’s social media platforms for the two participating teams.
