Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 27, 2012
Youth sports and community leaders around Central Ohio are taking notice of a fast-growing sports website platform called The Jersey Watch Network. A no-cost sports management and website service, Jersey Watch serves Columbus-area sports leagues, clubs and organizations with a suite of online features like schedules, scores, highlights and social media integration. Each website is customizable to specific sport clients and part of a larger regional network.
The network is quickly gaining traction around the Central Ohio region, with initial youth sports clients that include Pickerington Youth Athletic Association, the NCS Raiders Baseball Club and ongoing projects for Saint Charles Preparatory Baseball & Westerville Parks & Recreation Bantam Basketball.
“We’re finding the need is even greater than initially anticipated,” stated David Carter, Founder and CEO of Digital Edge Sports, Inc., which launched Jersey Watch this past April. “Sports organizations are not satisfied with the free options that are available, and they are turning to Jersey Watch for a stronger-branded website.”
At the core of the Jersey Watch business model lays a unique sponsorship framework that provides the system free-of-charge for all organizations, leagues and teams. Regional partners are rewarded for this support through creative marketing and advertising placements. Current partners include OrthoNeuro, a leading orthopedic and sports medicine physician group, and Firehouse Subs. Carter described, “Our partners were looking for greater impact with communities and families, and youth organizations often lack the time and resources to approach and secure sponsorship support. It seemed nature to connect the two.”
Having launched its Version 1.0 this spring, the Jersey Watch team has an aggressive development schedule and feature roadmap thanks to the ongoing feedback received from Columbus-area youth sport leaders, coaches and parents. The Jersey Watch team is quickly making plans for new feature upgrades that will include additional third-party application integration and a more robust payment-processing portal. “The last 90 days have been tremendous and our team has received a large amount of feedback from our early-clients," Carter said, "Moving forward, we’re excited to grow our platform to fit their needs.”
