We are proud to announce our partnership with Prairie Trail Sports Complex, set to open Fall 2022 in Ankeny, Iowa. Prairie Trail SC is the newest multi-sport complex to bring PlaySight’s industry-standard live streaming and performance video platform to its facilities, including four basketball courts and four volleyball courts, joining industry leaders such as LakePoint Sports and IMG Academy who trust Connexa Sports for their sports video technology needs.

David Lane, Owner and Program Director at Prairie Trail, opted to go with PlaySight over other sports video platforms on the market. “We felt that PlaySight provided the best quality of stream amongst the companies we researched. We also felt the cost structure gave us the greatest control of how we offered it to our fans.” PlaySight recently announced an expanded partnership with IMG Academy and works with other similar facilities across the country that attract elite youth sports, both local and travel. “Our goal is to provide an experience that will encourage parents and athletes to demand that their coaches and club directors participate in as many tournaments and activities at our facility as possible. Live streaming and game video archives are essential to that experience, and we feel that PlaySight is the right company for us.”

We sat down with David and Facility Director Brady Randall to discuss PlaySight at Prairie Trail. Below is what they had to say:



Why did Prairie Trail decide to go with PlaySight for streaming and video analysis?

David: We felt that PlaySight provided the best quality of stream amongst the companies we researched. We also felt the cost structure gave us the greatest control of how we offered it to our fans. The system’s multiple camera angles, motion tracking technology, an on-demand video library of games, and an easy-to-follow dashboard will provide our athletes and fans with a great pre-game, in-game, and post-game experience. 

What do you want to achieve by providing PlaySight technology?

David: Our goal is to provide an experience that will encourage parents and athletes to demand that their coaches and club directors participate in as many tournaments and activities at our facility as possible. Live streaming and game video archives are essential to that experience, and we feel that PlaySight is the right company for us.

As the Facility Director, what unique experience(s) do you believe PlaySight will be able to offer?

Brady: With parents having multiple kids in multiple sports and multiple venues on a weekend, having PlaySight at our facility provides parents the ability to be a part of everyone’s weeknight and weekend activities. Family and friends across the country can join in on the experience as well.
