True Sport and TeamSnap to collaborate on values-based content for its members

(Ottawa, ON – July 8, 2014) – True Sport announced today that TeamSnap, used by nearly seven million people around the world to coordinate sports and other activities, will become an official True Sport partner, creating unique value for sport clubs, teams, school, athletes, coaches, managers, and volunteers in the Canadian sport system. Together, the organizations will co-create and share values-based content on websites, social media and the TeamSnap app for both organizations’ audiences, as well as jointly promote each other’s products and services.

“We know that good sport experiences are values-based and principle-driven, so creating content that can help align True Sport values with TeamSnap products and services is an exciting opportunity,” said Karri Dawson, director of True Sport Operations.

True Sport defines those values as fairness, excellence, inclusion and fun. The True Sport Principles are Go For It, Play Fair, Respect Others, Keep It Fun, Stay Healthy, Give Back and Include Everyone.

"True Sport is committed to a positive sport experience for every member of the athlete community, and that's a message TeamSnap can absolutely stand behind," said Ken McDonald, vice president of customer acquisition for TeamSnap. "We're excited to partner with True Sport and look forward to working together to emphasize values of fairness, excellence, inclusion and fun, which we know are dear to the TeamSnap community's heart as well."
