SnapSports Athletic Surfaces Are In Play At The 2017 Big South National Volleyball Tournament

Friday, April 14th, 2017

 

The 2017 Big South National Qualifier Volleyball Tournament took place at the Georgia World Congress Center March 31st – April 2nd, with over 40 championship volleyball courts. The Big South Championships hosted over 1400 teams playing on 200,000 square feet of our multi-patented 50-50 athletic surfacing with ShockTower® Technology.  The nation’s elite girls volleyball teams, ages 12 – 18, competed in the 3-day Stay & Play event with winners awarded bids in the USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Championship Divisions. SnapSports® provides this event’s choice flooring for the third consecutive year.

“SnapSports’ 50-50 ShockTower is by far the best and easiest product that we have ever used to put down and to dismantle for a large event like Big South. We were able to shave three hours off of tear down thanks to the SnapSports system. The athletes love playing on it!” – Randy Dagostino, Director Big South National Qualifier

When choosing championship volleyball courts, officials of the Big South National Qualifier were looking for a high-quality floor that was easy to put down and disassemble, with consistent ball play that would deliver the industry’s safest play for the thousands of elite athletes scheduled to compete on each court. The clear choice was SnapSports 50-50 with ShockTower.

“SnapSports has consistently developed game changing sports products over the decades. We developed the ShockTower, an innovation greatly reducing the force sustained by athletes during aggressive play and eliminating the need for underlayment. We have now combined ShockTower Technology with the 50-50 sports surface, the industry’s largest module. We have seen great success in both our domestic and international market with many demanding this superior flooring for their athletes to compete on.” – Jorgen Moller, CEO SnapSports

SnapSports’ patented ShockTower technology is the only modular sports flooring with built-in shock absorbers throughout, delivering an added level of “cush” to reduce impact on players’ joints and limbs. Combined with 50-50, the largest modular volleyball flooring system, which delivers up to 70% fewer seams throughout an official size volleyball court, there is no better volleyball flooring available for performance and safe play.

Why a Backyard Court is More Popular Than a Backyard Pool

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

What is a backyard court? Typically, it’s an area in the backyard where you have a concrete slab poured to the size of game court with a modular athletic surface on top for safer play, performance, and all-weather playability. There are several companies who manufacture and provide these surfaces, but SnapSports® Athletic Surfaces of Salt Lake City is the clear leader.

An outdoor multi-purpose court is much more practical than a pool, which kids typically stop using after a few years. Then there is the costly maintenance and constant upkeep with a pool, unlike a backyard court.

Typically with companies like SnapSports, you can easily convert your court from just basketball to include any additional sports such as volleyball, inline hockey, pickleball, paddle tennis, shuffleboard, and many other sports and activities.

So why are these backyard courts becoming so popular?

  • Convenience – What’s better than having your own custom backyard rec center?
  • Safety – You’ll always know where you kids are and who they are with.
  • Health – Promotes a lifelong habit of healthy sports fun

With the advent of these safer all-weather sports surfaces being adopted by not only families around the country, but top level sports organizations like NBA, AAU, FIBA, US Futsal, Volleyball associations and more, it is safe to say that you will see many more backyard courts in your neighborhood soon.

SnapSports was once again honored to be the official volleyball flooring of the Asics Big South volleyball tournament held in Atlanta March 31 – April 2. This year we had 150 full courts and over 1,110 teams from across the US for this fantastic event. Big South is renowned not only for being the largest volleyball tournament in the world, but also for its high level of competition, fun atmosphere and smooth operations. Since dumping the outdated “industry standard” surfacing and switching to SnapSports 50-50 ShockTower volleyball surfacing, Big South was able to eliminate a full day of setup/teardown time, saving over $60,000 in rental fees. Also, the players and coaches love the 300% increased force reduction and 70% fewer seams.

SnapSports® has been chosen as an official flooring provider for the 1st Annual AAU Las Vegas Memorial Day Tournament to take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Tarkanian Basketball Academy May 24 – 26, 2014. The expansion to Las Vegas comes following several successful Memorial Day Tournaments held in Reno with this year’s competition expecting over 1000 teams. The ‘Jam On It’ Vegas event sets itself apart, however, in a big fashion – the tournament will host both basketball and volleyball competitors, boys and girls ages elementary through varsity. SnapSports ShockTower surface was chosen as the premium surface to accommodate the dual sport tournament.

“Unlike any other modular sports surfacing, the SnapSports ShockTower floors give us the best performance and safest playing surfacing for both our basketball and volleyball athletes to compete during the same event, simply not possible before SnapSports.”
~ Matt Williams – CEO Jam On It.

The 2014 AAU Jam On It Las Vegas Memorial Day tournament will feature over 90 teams competing on 15 ShockTower Championship Courts. The multi-patented ShockTower technology is the only surface on the market to incorporate a shock absorption system into the understructure of the floor. 16 individual shocks per square foot ease the impact on player’s joints, guaranteeing a safer surface for any sport including basketball and volleyball. The versatility and high performance of SnapSports’ product line has made them a favorite of athletes, coaches, and event facilitators.

“We are excited to have been chosen as the official multi-court for AAU’s Jam On It Dual Sport Tournament. SnapSports surfaces are engineered for athlete performance and protection throughout the play of ANY sport. We are ecstatic to be a part of this inaugural tournament and are looking forward to helping it grow over the next few years.”
