HAMPTON, NH – Comcast Business today announced that Seacoast United Sports Club, an athletic organization offering team-based sports across three New England states, implemented Comcast Business Internet and Business VoiceEdge services to manage facilities and team sports across its 11 locations. This deployment of services will enable organizers, coaching staffs and families to stay better connected, both on and off the field.
Celebrating its 25th year as the largest, non-professional sports organization in New England, Seacoast United works with more than 10,000 children across five sports: soccer, field hockey, baseball, softball and lacrosse. Its largest facilities in Epping and Hampton, NH offer strength and conditioning, operated by Exeter Hospital & CORE OrthopedicsAthletic Performance Center as well as onsite restaurant operated by local favorite Lexie’s Joint. With the continued operational growth, Seacoast United required a partner that could provide scalable technology services with a high level of reliability across the region.
“Our biggest priority is making sure we are buttoned up on the field and developing athletes in a professional environment. We need to know that our customer amenities and operations off the field are just as robust as our coaching procedures,” said James Peterson, Sales and Marketing Director at Seacoast United. “We require reliable technology services that allow our sites to coordinate schedules and teams while providing our families with connectivity options including internet access on the sidelines.”
Seacoast United implemented Comcast Business Internet services at each of its 11 locations allowing sites to coordinate athlete registration information for the various teams, scheduling of indoor and outdoor facilities, internal business operations and providing Wi-Fi access for guests. Each location is connected via Comcast Business VoiceEdge services allowing the coaching staff to remain connected even when they are on the fields with call forwarding and readable voicemails.
“We have more than 10,000 people visiting just our Hampton facility weekly, let alone across our entire footprint – reliable, efficient internet services are an imperative,” continued Peterson. “Our goal is to be “New England’s Home for Sports”. By partnering with Comcast Business, we are one step closer to achieving this goal. The credibility the company has in addition to their technology services, strategically elevates our organization.”
“Comcast Business is a community-focused organization similar to Seacoast United. We aim to provide technology services that meet the needs of our neighborhoods’ families and partners today and into the future. As Seacoast United becomes the New England home for sports for all ages, we will work with them to provide the corresponding internet, phone and entertainment services they need to support their growth,” said Steve Walsh, Vice President, Comcast Business Greater Boston Region.
