TORONTO, March 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — This week, Javelin Sports Inc. announces its partnership with Olympic Gold Medalist Donovan Bailey, combining the influence of a Canadian star with its leading platform of engaging sports. The sport management app is designed for athletes of all levels and encourages greater sport participation across Canada.
Founded in 2016, Javelin Sports has changed the way athletes build their communities. The app has seen phenomenal growth over the past year, accumulating over 30,000 players who frequently connect with others on the app to play their sport of choice. The idea came from the two co-founders, Justin Ford and Coleman Chan, who said: “We realized that we didn’t play as many sports as when we were kids, so we wanted to solve that problem.”
Over the past two years, sports activities have stagnated as the sports recreation industry has taken a hit. Now, as restrictions begin to slowly ease and the weather warms up, Javelin hopes to onboard new athletes to the app to kickstart the sporting momentum.
The unique app recently caught the eye of famed Canadian sprinter Donovan Bailey, who resonated with the app’s mission to introduce new players to connect over their love for the sport. He recently opted to secure a seat on the advisory board of Javelin Sports. Over the next year, Javelin Sports is expected to grow its player base to 100,000 athletes, connecting more players to new friends and opponents than ever before.
Backed by a Canadian sporting legacy, Javelin Sports is poised to make waves on the Canadian recreational scene, giving Canadians access to a one-stop platform for sports. Seventy-six percent of adults say they want to exercise more, but only 27% of adults are actively playing, which is why Javelin’s goal is to return true activity in the daily life of Canadians.
Javelin Sports operates in Toronto but is available to athletes, professional and otherwise, nationwide. To learn more about its mission and how to get involved, visit javelinsportsinc.com.
