SnapSports KICKS off Spring at the 2019 US Futsal Regional Championship

Friday, March 1st, 2019

Over 80,000 square feet of SnapSports® patented Indoor Bounceback ShockTower Futsal Flooring is Santa Clara bound for the 2019 US Futsal Northwest Regional Championship.

The event takes place March 1st – 3rd at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California. As part of the Road to the US Futsal National Championship, 240 teams of boys and girls ages 9–19 will compete on nine SnapSports Indoor Futsal courts. Winners will earn a bid to attend the 34th National Championship event in July.

When looking for tournament flooring, SnapSports Indoor BounceBack ShockTower® was the clear choice for USFF officials. The versatile BounceBack surface utilizes SnapSports patented ShockLock® technology, a system designed to absorb lateral impact. This is a key benefit to athletes playing a high speed sport requiring hard stops and quick pivots.

Outside of superior ball performance and athlete safety, SnapSports Indoor BounceBack ShockTower is the only modular Futsal surface with a built-in shock absorption system, entirely eliminating the need for the time consuming laying of rubber underlayment. As with any of the SnapSports tournament flooring lines, Indoor BounceBack ShockTower installs and dismantles in just a few hours, making for easy and efficient tournament preparation.

SnapSports has been a product partner of US Futsal for over a decade.

Atlanta Hawks Choose SnapSports® for 50th Anniversary Court Gift

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

The 50th anniversary of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks commemorated with donation of SnapSports outdoor basketball court on January 21, 2019

As part of the organization’s commitment to community in 2015, the Atlanta Hawks Foundation pledged to build and revamp 25 metro Atlanta basketball courts by 2020. Making good on that 5 year promise, the Hawks installed the 23rd of 25 courts Monday at Selena S. Butler Park, adjacent to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation and Aquatic Center. The court, comprised entirely of SnapSports NEW Outdoor Revolution® surfacing, was the first court to feature a custom gold and black design celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Atlanta Hawks. The color scheme notably also pays tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, honoring his national and local contributions. SnapSports, based in Utah, was ecstatic to have their product chosen for such an incredible event.

“We are proud to partner with the Atlanta Hawks Foundation on a joint mission to increase youth play, leadership skills and delivering a positive impact in local communities. The team at SnapSports is honored to have our SnapSports® Outdoor Basketball Courts chosen for these community courts,” – Jorgen Moller, CEO SnapSports

The 58′ x 102′ SnapSports Outdoor Revolution Court done in alloy, black and gold showcases a custom painted 20′ x 20′ center court logo commemorating the Hawks 50 year anniversary. The Hawks chose SnapSports Outdoor Revolution, the newest court product in the SnapSports family, for its seamless design, durability, and excellent performance metrics: including industry leading wet/dry traction and superior ball play suitable for players of all ages. The Atlanta Hawks will finish their project commitment, installing 12,000 square feet of SnapSports surfacing for courts number 24 and 25 in the summer of 2019.

The Atlanta Hawks organization, founded in 1968, embodies a strong focus on community using their ‘Building Bridges through Basketball’ programming. Outside of their commitment to revamping and building new community courts, the Hawks also offer Jr. Hawks Camps and Clinics, an academy for Coaches Education, and over 4,000 hours of community service. As written in the Building Bridges Brochure, the Hawks believe that “every child deserves the right to safe places to play and in the power of sports and the social, emotional, and physical benefits they offer kids.”

Internet retail giant Overstock.com recently contracted with SnapSports of Utah, the local authorized SnapSports builder, to complete a major upgrade to their employee campus. Overstock, located in Murray, Utah, was looking for a way to utilize a portion of their 19 acre corporate campus for a recreational and fun space for their 1500+ employees.

After working extensively with SnapSports of Utah on design and location options, Overstock chose an easily accessible spot and a 50′ x 84′ full size outdoor court for their campus. The court is floored with SnapSports top-of-the-line patented Outdoor BounceBack ShockTower®. It sports the Overstock colors, a custom center court logo, two regulation 72″ DuraSlam basketball hoops and has game lines for basketball, tennis, volleyball, and various other net sports.

Excavation on the Overstock.com court began in September with the end result complete earlier this week. SnapSports is ecstatic to have been chosen to provide a cool court to a cool company who has a focus on the health and well-being of their employees. Like SnapSports, Overstock is clearly a company who also encourages their staff to “Never Stop Playing!”
