The Pirates join a prestigious group of NCAA member institutions adopting Teamworks, investing in operational efficiency and the platform’s mobile technologies to better reach millennial student-athletes.“The ‘UNDAUNTED’ strategic plan ECU Athletics launched a few years ago identified several priority areas and created a road map for us as an Athletics Department to move forward as a more efficient operation,” said J.J. McLamb, Senior Associate Athletics Director/Internal Operations. “Teamworks will immediately assist and further our progress as its design and functionality addresses many, if not all, of UNDAUNTED’s key concepts.

The Pirate Creed and Pirate Code are very well aligned with our mission to help organizations work together more effectively and efficiently and we look forward to extending our presence in Greenville to ensure all student-athletes, coaches and administrators have the tools needed to perform at the highest level.”With this new department-wide partnership, Teamworks partners with more than 850 clients including over 300 NCAA Division I teams.
