Sites are filling in the niche, and one, FirstString, has designed an online social community designed to replicate the local structures of high school athletics.
Using FirstString’s technology, athletes within the same conference and division are automatically connected – allowing instant access to their teammates, opponents and friends and to content that is relevant to their location and sport. Users in over 10 sports can safely communicate via FirstString’s SportCast, Highlights, Watchlist and Rank Voting system.
“FirstString has devoted a great amount of time and energy in simulating the competitive dynamics of high school athletics to the Web,” said Jonathan Eppers,Founder and President, FirstSting. “FirstString is built to deliver engaging and relevant content that is happening on the field and inside the school district. Our team is very excited to deliver such an exclusive community that touches high school athletics in a local way, and will continue building features that enhance the on-field experience.”
It was developed to promote an efficient means for players to converse with one another, post photos, videos, awards, press, coordinate schedules and stay up to date on player stats. FirstString brings the competitive and dynamic “on the field” playing environment to the Web through a clean site design and rich feature set that is tailored to encourage team bonding, healthy competition, and enhanced athlete participation.
