MySportVideos is more than just another YouTube or MySpace. We continue to build on the concepts of other networking and media sharing sites to provide an athlete-centric sports experience for all participants
Atlanta, Ga. (PRWEB) October 25, 2007
MySportVideos™ (http://www.MySportVideos.com), through its recently acquired Microsoft.Net platform, has launched expanded Web offerings for the first free online media-sharing and social networking site designed specifically for youth sports. The launch represents a new website 'look and feel' for MySportVideos. MySportVideos allows sports enthusiasts, ages 8-18, to track and share their videos, stats, photos and music archives by sport category -- all free of charge. Young athletes and their fans can now interact with other young athletes and fans from around the world as they create their own personal profile pages, post videos, share blogs, compare stats and compete with others.
To provide a more compelling Web 2.0 experience, MySportVideos recently acquired a new technology platform operating on a solid Microsoft.Net foundation. The new platform enables MySportVideos to expand many of its Web offerings and has afforded the company much more room to grow its online presence.
The new MySportVideos.com features include:
- easy video upload from all media types, including digital video cameras, mobile phones, cameras, pc video libraries, etc;
- individual game and season stat tracking with direct links to game videos;
- user-friendly pages for athletes and fans to blog and build personal profiles;
- user control over posted content -- profiles and videos can be public or private.
Top users and those with the highest ratings will also see their videos and profiles pushed to the top of the rankings, where they are highly visible to the MySportVideos community of users, including friends, family, teammates, coaches, recruiters, professionals and experts. MySportVideos will soon release 'Coaches Corner,' which allows coaches, teams and individuals to use one comprehensive schedule for games, practices, team stats, videos and texting capability from the site.
This online media sharing and social networking site is unique in that it focuses on young up-and-coming athletes.
"MySportVideos is more than just another YouTube or MySpace. We continue to build on the concepts of other networking and media sharing sites to provide an athlete-centric sports experience for all participants," said John Hayde, CEO of MySportVideos, LLC. "The site allows young athletes to track and share their sport videos and stats with friends, family, team members, coaches and even recruiters, while bringing together professional athletes, young whiz kids and experts in the fields of sports training, nutrition and sports psychology, to create the defacto site for youth sports," he continued.
This past spring, MLB great, future Hall of Famer and New York Mets pitcher, Tom Glavine, partnered with MySportVideos to head the baseball category for ongoing growth and education of the sport. Other professional athletes have been tapped for other respective sports categories represented on the site and will be announced in coming weeks.
Those with interests in youth sports are invited to register with MySportVideos to share, compare and compete at http://www.mysportvideos.com. As an incentive to young athletes, an extreme MP3 player will be given away if a submitted video is selected by MySportVideos executives.
