CoachDeck LLC Partners with PHIT America
San Diego, CA Dec 12, 2013 – CoachDeck LLC, (www.coachdeck.com) a leader in providing training resources for youth sports coaches, has announced a partnership with PHIT America.org (www.phitamerica.org). PHIT stands for Personal Health Investment Today. PHIT America was launched in January 2013 and now has 140+ companies and organizations advocating for their mission of increasing physical activity and fitness to improve health in America.
"CoachDeck, at its core, is about health and physical fitness," said Brian Gotta, President of CoachDeck. "Our product is designed to facilitate improved coaching at the youth, community sports level. Our data shows that when children abandon sports out of frustration or boredom, the largest contributing factor is poor coaching. Conversely, quality coaching directly correlates to kids' continued involvement. Children who play sports longer are more likely to form habits that lead to better physical health and fitness throughout their lives."
Jim Baugh, PHIT America CEO and President said, "One of our core strategies is to effect positive change in grassroots, community and school programs. We believe that CoachDeck's familiarity with and brand recognition in the youth sports space can assist us in promoting our message."
While many organizations are focused on nutrition, PHIT America is totally focused on one mission: Help Americans to be a more active, playing more sports, and being fit resulting in a more healthy life. Simply said, PHIT America is a movement to reverse the "inactivity pandemic" which is hurting our country and Americans.
Said Gotta, "Everything we do, from our coaching cards to our written, educational material centers on one thing: Getting more kids to play more sports longer. A healthy and active child is more likely to be a healthy and active adult."
CoachDeck cards were created to assist the millions of hard-working youth sports volunteers and parents who would like to help players learn important skills and fundamentals though fun drills and games. Designed by professional coaches, the drills in CoachDeck can be performed by players from 6-16 and are laid out in a fast, easy-to-understand format that allows coaches to conduct an extremely effective practice with little or no preparation.
