SUNRISE, Fla. - Youth hockey players, parents and cash-strapped hockey associations in South Florida have some time-saving technology upgrades to look forward to.

“Actions speak louder than words,” said Ken Cook, Pointstreak’s COO, “and the message the Panthers organization is saying is clear: We are here to help grassroots hockey in our own backyard. With this partnership in particular, the Panthers are choosing to go above and beyond normal efforts and are funding technology upgrades for teams in their local community. Pointstreak is proud to be associated with a great organization that goes beyond lip service and actually helps real people with real tools they can use.”

In accordance with the Florida Panthers Foundation’s mission to assist families and children in the area pursue enhanced health, education and fitness, this grassroots initiative will see the Panthers underwrite the costs of installing Pointstreak sports software to grassroots hockey organizations.

“Technology used to be a nice-to-have in youth sports. Now it is an integral part of it,” said Peter Luukko, Panthers Executive Chairman, “Eliminating manual entry of scores, Pointstreak provides young players with their statistics delivered in real-time. With their stats accessible on Pointstreak through floridapanthers.com, we aim to make all youth hockey players in South Florida a part of the Panthers.”

Qualified associations and teams will be provided with professional websites whose content they can manage themselves, official league scoring and statistics software, and online registration and payment tools, all of which will help busy parents and cash-strapped youth hockey organizations simply do more with less.
