DURHAM, NC – [Tuesday, June 22, 2021] – Teamworks, the leading athlete engagement platform for professional and collegiate organizations, is pleased to announce its first partnership in the WNBA with the 2020 championship-winning Seattle Storm. The Storm implements Teamworks to provide flexible communication and scheduling solutions to players through one centralized and reliable source.
“Last season involved a great deal of uncertainty and highlighted the critical need to not only be organized but also prepared to pivot and adapt,” said Talisa Rhea, General Manager for the Storm. “We work with some of the world’s most elite athletes in the WNBA, and they deserve a best-in-class player engagement solution to simplify their lives and scheduling surrounding basketball. Teamworks provides a secure, flexible solution for our communication and operational needs so that our players consistently feel prepared and organized moving through the season.”
