FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly and Tisha Venturini-Hoch take their game to the next level with a modern approach to sports automation
SEATTLE, Wash (November 19, 2013) – Korrio (korrio.com), a cloud-based service for organizing and sharing youth sports, announced today the signing of TeamFirst, a soccer academy led by a trio of soccer legends, Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly and Tisha Venturini-Hoch.
Korrio integrates web, mobile and social networking to provide sports organizations with a comprehensive, user-friendly online sports automation system, managing all aspects of club and team operations – from registration, payment processing and rostering to practice and game scheduling and communications. Each user has a personal dashboard, providing families and players with the tools to organize and share their sports lives on and off the field with Korrio’s new mobile app.
TeamFirst delivers age-appropriate, three-hour training sessions. Hamm, Lilly, and Venturini-Hoch promote team play over individual achievement and instill the disciplines that made them three of the most successful players in the game’s history. And chalk up an assist to an elite staff of soccer coaches and players who’ve walked the walk and talk the talk. Academy attendees will not only be schooled in the world-class training disciplines of soccer; they’ll be encouraged to respect the integrity of the game.
“Our goal is to make this entire camp experience easy and fun. Korrio gets us there. Registration is not only easy, but we are able to capture custom data for our programs. We also get to communicate on the fly – making our jobs that much more fun. I especially love their new mobile app!”, said Mia Hamm, TeamFIrst Co-founder and one of the world highest scoring females of all time. “I use Korrio for all of my soccer camps and I am consistently impressed with the simplicity of communicating last minute changes. It just takes a couple taps,” said Kristine Lilly, Korrio Soccer Ambassador and Co-founding member of TeamFirst.
“Korrio continues to grow as sports organizations and families adopt a modern way to keep their sports life organized. TeamFirst is yet another example of a world class program seeking to improve the experience for their customers. Everyone is far too busy to be chasing email and searching for info – Korrio puts your sports life right in the palm of your hand.” said Steve Goldman, Founder and CEO of Korrio.
