KANSAS CITY, Mo. (July 7, 2020) – United Soccer Coaches announced today a new strategic partnership with data-solutions company Tipevo.
The partnership will allow United Soccer Coaches to utilize Tipevo’s advanced data technology to better serve the association’s 400-plus Member Clubs. The platform delivers comprehensive information to parents about soccer clubs and programs around the country and allows for consumer reviews and direct communication with clubs.
“Tipevo offers unique opportunities to clubs, including ongoing engagement directly with parents,” said Lynn Berling-Manuel, CEO of United Soccer Coaches. “We want to help soccer clubs operate more successfully and parent communications and feedback is the ‘secret sauce’ of the best clubs.”
The Member Club’s unique tiered program offers a wide variety of benefits for soccer clubs of all sizes including free online grassroots education for a club’s parent coaches, free introductory memberships for all of the club’s coaches, the ability to host in-person coaches courses at all levels, individual full memberships for senior coaches with an additional $1,000,000 in general liability coverage, discounted attendance at the annual Convention, and more.
“We are delighted to officially announce the relationship between Tipevo and United Soccer Coaches,” said Danny Conte, Tipevo President & Founder. “Through our unique ability to provide directory and data intelligence-based services, we look forward to helping the association in representing their current club partners. We’ll also assist in the identification of youth soccer organizations who may be able to benefit from coaching education and other resources which are available through their Member Club program.”
Tipevo presented its platform as one of the first companies to participate in the new Innovation Hub, sponsored by Verizon, at the 2020 United Soccer Coaches Convention in Baltimore. The company will once again be part of the Hub in the Exhibit Hall at the 2021 Convention being held Jan. 6-10 in Anaheim, Calif.
