WOODSTOCK, GA. January 19, 2011- VAS along with Silicon Coach today announced they have signed a strategic alliance agreement, which allows VAS and Silicon Coach to supply the US football and soccer communities with their combined suite of biomechanics/sports related suite of products with its Sideline Coach/Trainer™ and KickersTime ™ suite of products. Now college bound football kickers, soccer players and coaching professionals will have for the first time an “on-demand” portal for video analysis and feedback dedicated to serving the needs of this growing niche market.
In evaluating various partners, VAS and Silicon Coach have concluded that the synergy between these two dedicated organizations serving the pure athlete and coaching professional, along the expertise of their staffs and the potential for the mutual markets have been a persuasive reason for entering into this partnership.
“For over a year we have been internally working on designing our specific video analysis software applications for the athlete and coach dedicated to being the pure “kicking specialist” and coaching professional who needs a simple yet robust “on the field” and “beyond the field” way to capture and analyze every aspect of the kick. In Silicon Coach we have found not only a world-class leader, but one that shares our corporate goals. We are positive that both companies will derive important benefits from this effort.” said Marc Nolan CEO of VAS International, Inc.
“Siliconcoach Limited is pleased to add VAS International to a growing list of strategic partners globally that are taking the Siliconcoach suite of products and adapting them for use in their specialist areas. When assessing a potential partnership with VAS Siliconcoach was most impressed with the company’s expertise in the specialist area of “kicking” as it relates to football and soccer. We look forward to a successful relationship with VAS.” said Graeme Burborough GM of Siliconcoach Ltd.
