Now, ACS customers can ease their student-athletes scheduling difficulties and save valuable staff time by delivering NCAA rules education in a more meaningful, convenient and cost-effective way.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 26, 2012
ACS Athletics announced a new partnership today with ProTech to deliver Athletic Advantage™, a convenient new way for collegiate student-athletes to receive rules education online from the comfort of their home or anywhere they have Internet access.
This new service allows student-athletes to easily fit NCAA rules education into their busy schedules. Using online technology that is simple and enjoyable for today's tech-savvy students, Athletic AdvantageTM is available through a secure portal and offers video, diagnostic tools, alerts and answer validation to facilitate learning and help guide student-athletes through the curriculum.
"Student-athletes are more pressed for time now than ever before, juggling class schedules, activities, practice and team travel," explains Phillip Engle, CEO and President of ACS Athletics. "Now, ACS customers can ease their student-athletes scheduling difficulties and save valuable staff time by delivering NCAA rules education in a more meaningful, convenient and cost-effective way."
Athletic Advantage™ can be the primary source of rules education for an athletics department or it can simply complement an existing curriculum or program. This flexibility, along with customizable options, will allow compliance staffs to tailor their rules education program to meet the unique needs of their student-athletes regardless of whether they’re receiving instruction in compliance meetings, online or a combination of both.
"We’re excited to partner with ProTech to help our customers strengthen and expand their NCAA rules education program,” said Bo Kerin, Director of Sales and Marketing at ACS Athletics. “With the launch of this new service, we continue to lead the industry by offering innovative solutions that give our customers a competitive advantage, save time and reduce risk."
