Santa Clara Athletics commit to Teamworks to advance student-athlete engagement
The Broncos use Teamworks to emphasize academic and athletic achievement for student-athletes across 20 sports.
DURHAM, NC – [Tuesday, February 4, 2020] – Teamworks, the leading athlete engagement platform for collegiate and professional organizations, is pleased to announce a partnership with Santa Clara University Athletics. The Broncos will leverage Teamworks to communicate efficiently and simplify the flow of information to student-athletes from athletics staff. In addition to Teamworks’ core offerings, SCU will leverage Teamworks Academics to improve the academic success of all student-athletes.
“Teamworks streamlines communication throughout our department, but especially between our coaches and student-athletes,” said Ryan Holleman, Associate Athletic Director for Sports Medicine. “Our student-athletes check one central app regarding their class and training schedules and are quickly notified as information is updated so everyone is on the same page.”
With Teamworks Academics, the Broncos will simplify the logistics around academic support to improve outcomes for their 20 sports. Academic advisors gain better insights into student-athlete calendars, minimizing no-shows and cancellations, while also accurately being able to monitor class and study hall attendance through the check-ins feature.
“We were originally communicating through multiple platforms, but Teamworks gives us a unified communication process to make the lives of our student-athletes easier,” said Jessica Everhart, Associate Athletic Director for Academics and Student Services. “In addition to having their athletic commitments streamlined, Teamworks Academics simplifies our student-athletes’ lives by centralizing classroom expectations through the app.”
Santa Clara joins more than 2,000 NCAA Division I departments and teams that partner with Teamworks. The Broncos will use Teamworks to minimize distractions and maximize resources so student-athletes are set up for success in both the classroom and on the field.
“We are thrilled to welcome Santa Clara to our Teamworks family,” said Zach Maurides, CEO and Founder of Teamworks. “It is a pleasure to provide Santa Clara with the tools needed to centralize department operations and streamline communication and academic success for all Bronco athletes.”
