DURHAM, NC – [Thursday, August 1, 2019]Teamworks, the leading athlete engagement platform for professional and collegiate organizations, is pleased to announce a partnership with Collingwood FC, a member of the Australian Football League (AFL).  Collingwood FC will leverage Teamworks to increase efficiency and streamline communication among staff so that they can further invest in athlete success.

“Teamworks offers our athletes the tools to perform at their best,” said Head Coach Nathan Buckley.  “The combination of ease of use and innovative opportunities made Teamworks an easy choice.  Our athletes will have clarity and certainty about their programs, both individually and collectively, with Teamworks, giving us a competitive edge.”

By streamlining communication and operational processes, Teamworks will allow Collingwood FC to increase operational efficiency so athletes can focus on performing at an elite level.  Alerts through the app to any updates and schedule changes will ensure every member of the team has the latest information.
