Trigger Point Performance, a division of the Implus Corporation and leading performance, therapy and education product innovator, announced a partnership with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) to be the “Official Self-Message Therapy Devices” of the U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Teams.
A three-year partnership provides Trigger Point products and education to USSA athletes, coaches, and trainers annually for inclusion in their national training and education facility – the Center of Excellence in Park City, UT, where the USSA provides leadership for thousands of young skiers and snowboarders at all levels.
As part of the partnership, USSA will receive Trigger Point’s patented massage and recovery tools, including the GRID and GRID X foam rollers, NANO, TP Massage Balls, GRID 2.0, and the new handheld foam roller, the GRID STK. Trigger Point will also educate USSA training staff about product.
“This partnership is a great example of Trigger Point’s continued efforts to seek partners who build upon the mission of empowering today’s athletes to move better through improved mobility, range of motion, and tissue strength,” said Marco Garsed, vice president of marketing for Implus. “We foresee a dynamic partnership with USSA and look forward to helping these young stars achieve their athletic goals.”
“A key focus of USSA’s high performance department is to ensure our athletes’ bodies are as strong and healthy as possible for competitions,” said USSA Chief Marketing Officer Michael Jaquet. “The inclusion of Trigger Point products, incorporated with educational opportunities, will help the USSA continue to provide support to our athletes in all aspects of their training.”
With a focus on education and empowering people to feel better, Trigger Point offers an Online Education Portal that includes educational videos and information on the best methods for using the products.
