CARLSBAD, CA – January 26, 2021 – Blast Motion, the leader in swing analysis, player development and improvement, today announced a partnership with 3STEP Sports to help put industry-leading swing improvement technology in the hands of baseball and fastpitch athletes across New England.
“We are excited to partner with Blast Motion to implement their technology across the 3STEP baseball landscape,” said Walker Jones, Chief Marketing Officer and Partner at 3STEP Sports. “The Blast Motion technology will provide each of our athletes a training and data analysis platform to reach their maximum potential.” Jones noted.
3STEP Sports is the largest youth sport event and club operator in the nation, spanning 34 states and currently serving more than 1.8 million athletes across seven sports: baseball, fastpitch, basketball, field hockey, football, lacrosse, and volleyball.
Blast Motion technology will be implemented by 3STEP at team tryouts and training across the entire baseball and fastpitch platforms. Players will have the chance to interact with the technology to better understand areas of improvement in their swing.
“Connecting our 3STEP baseball and fastpitch consumers with Blast Motion is a huge step forward in engaging the use of technology in player development,” said Patrick Mason, Vice President of Baseball at 3STEP Sports.
“The information we capture will not only be a great tool for our players, but also an additional asset in our evaluation of players in a tryout environment.” As development of digital analysis in youth sports grows, more and more opportunities are arising for players to better understand the best ways to develop their game. Blast Motion puts their technology at the fingertips of baseball and fastpitch players and families.
“Today players need the ability to train in multiple environments, both on and off the field, and Blast technology fits perfectly with 3STEP Sports’ passion for delivering premier youth sports experiences,” said Blast Motion’s Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships, Mike Woods.
“Blast technology will be implemented across 3STEP Sports facilities, club teams, and leagues, including in-game use within the New Balance Select League and New Balance Experience. This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to help players improve their performance by providing them with unbiased, real-time information and swing analysis insights, helping improve their collegiate recruiting and scouting opportunities.”
