On this Episode

On how Ultimate Hoops differentiated themselves:

“We didn’t want to make our league experience a one day or a week experience. We want our training to be a full seven day a week experience as well.”

On what new role technology will take on:

If we’re going to see however long the social distances things play out. Bringing a virtual experience and video experience to a lot of competitions, not just basketball is a big opportunity for PlaySight and other companies… for them to really showcase the technology and deliver sports events in a different way that hasn’t been delivered before.”
