BWC Properties Licenses SportsPilot’s SportsTech™ System for deployment in 120,000 sq. ft. Indoor Sports Facility

(PRWEB) January 29, 2004

SportsPilot, Inc., a Frisco based information services company specializing in amateur sports, announced today that it has reached agreement with BWC Properties to license and deploy its leading-edge SportsTech™ sports information system and brand-name in a new, Frisco-based indoor sports facility scheduled to break ground in June of 2004. The 120,000 sq. ft. SportsTech™ facility will host soccer, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, football and futsol and will incorporate the latest in architectural design and high-technology, creating a professional sports atmosphere for Frisco youth and parents.

SportsTech™ will create a unique experience for local sports enthusiasts through a combination of architectural design and high-technology. The 120,000 sq. ft. facility has a centralized design, with 2 full sized soccer arenas and 10 full sized basketball/volleyball courts. Court seating areas are all less than a half court away from the franchised concessions, SportsTech™ store, observation area, dining area, restrooms, underground locker rooms, showers, offices, and meeting rooms. Access to all courts is provided via an elevated causeway, making movement between courts quick while also greatly reducing cross-court noise.

“SportsTech™ is more than just a fancy looking indoor facility; it’s an integrated system designed to deliver the best possible sports experience at the lowest possible price.” said Ron Toupal, President/CEO of SportsPilot, Inc, a Frisco based, market leading sports information services provider.    SportsTech™ will not only automate the paper intensive registration and court rentals process; it will also provide a patent-pending information system allowing teams and players to capture stats and performance information. All teams that register with SportsTech’s system will receive a SportsTech™ integrated team web site which is designed to facilitate the team management process. Team sites can be used to register the team, reserve court time, display photos, view live game stats and schedule team practices. Each SportsTech™ court will have a large, dedicated HDTV-based display system which will show game box scores, real-time stats, shot charts, player pictures and game video. SportsTech’s information capture system also has the amazing ability to produce professionally written game articles immediately after each game.

Finally, SportsTech™ will incorporate a large Internet workstation area and have full wireless capabilities. After practices, kids can log on, do their homework, instant-message their friends or play online games. Parent’s can use these workstations to log into their office and work while they wait for practices to complete.

“Although I am an active supporter of our local professional sports franchises, I spend most of my money on the development of my kids. SportsTech™ will be the first of its kind to truly cater to the needs of active families with kids in amateur sports.” said Brad Cook, President of BWC properties. SportsTech™ will be located north of Main Street in downtown Frisco and will be just 500 ft. north of the planned Burn Soccer Complex. The facility is scheduled to open in the spring of 2005. “We expect SportsTech™ to become a model for future indoor centers and look forward to our grand opening in Frisco next year.” said Cook.

“We are very excited that Frisco has been chosen as the site for opening the first SportsTech™ in Texas. A multi-sport facility such as SportsTech, which focuses on youth and family sports, will greatly enhance Frisco’s growing reputation as a sports destination city.” , said Jim Gandy, President of the Frisco Economic Development Corporation.
