“We are very pleased to be partnering with the Ontario Basketball Association” said Geoff Reid, President of SportSavvy. “With the likes of current Ontario-born NBA players Andrew Wiggins, Cory Joseph and Tristan Thompson, along with the success of Kia Nurse and Natalie Achonwa on the international stage, it’s clear to see that basketball is exploding in this province and across Canada. Now with the recent success of the Raptors and the women’s national team qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics, we expect this trend to accelerate. Equally important, clubs recognize that they will want to have in place a system to both help manage this growth and to make their lives easier. We are very pleased to offer our software to clubs of the OBA so that they can streamline administrative tasks and put more resources back on to the court.”
