nonprofit programs / make a difference

At this time, difficult questions regarding the social economics of technology in sport need to be addressed. Are less wealthy groups being left out of the sports technology discussion? We believe the industry can do much more by engaging with social groups who do not have financial resources to engage with sports technologies. Help us reach young minds for equitable technology access by donating to our sports technology education programs.
