Zepp Partners With OnDeck Softball to Bring Swing Data to College Recruiting

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2014) - Zepp and OnDeck Softball have entered into a new partnership that will integrate the data metrics generated by the Zepp sensor into OnDeck Measurements, the first standardized measurements in softball recruiting. The leaders in college softball recruiting, OnDeck Softball has been integral in helping high school softball players showcase their talents to universities and colleges around the country for over 12 years.

Zepp data metrics on bat speed, hand speed, impact angles, swing plane and time to impact will now be a part of the valuable OnDeck Measurements which have become the industry standard for collegiate softball recruiting player evaluations. The Zepp technology and data will be added immediately to the dozens of elite camps and jamborees hosted by OnDeck Softball around the country.

"We're thrilled to have Zepp's swing data become a staple of the OnDeck Softball Measurement System," said Jason Fass, CEO of Zepp. "Every player who is tested by OnDeck Measurements will now have the opportunity to use the Zepp Sensor and experience for herself this exciting technology. The softball community is a key focus for us and we couldn't be more pleased to partner with one of its most respected organizations."

Zepp's advanced 3D swing technology helps softball players of all ages and skill levels improve their game. The tiny sensor easily attaches to the base of the bat and captures over 1,000 points of data in each and every swing, creating a perfect 3D rendering on any smartphone or tablet. In addition to seeing a swing in 3D, players, coaches and parents get instant feedback and a wealth of actionable data including results tagging to record outcome of each swing.

"We are very excited to be partnering with Zepp to bring the incredible Zepp training system to our Elite Recruiting Events," said Derek and Joann Allister, founders of OnDeck Softball. "The Zepp platform is without question the most intriguing new technological advancement the game of softball has seen in recent years. With Zepp's metrics included in our player evaluations, OnDeck Softball will reach new heights in its ability to help the college coaching community in the vital area of recruiting and player identification."
