BAND (Camp Mobile, Inc.), a communication app currently used by more than eight million group leaders worldwide, is a new corporate partner of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and the NFHS Network.
The BAND app provides coaches and teachers in schools throughout the country the ability to engage with sports teams and after-school groups on a single platform with features such as group messaging, notifications, calendars, polls, signups, photos and videos. BAND provides instructors with a reliable and secure tool to stay connected with parents or students without the clutter of using personal communication.
“We are excited to partner with BAND to help coaches communicate in a more effective manner with team members and their parents,” said Dr. Karissa Niehoff, NFHS executive director. “Through this partnership with BAND, we hope to encourage a positive school culture and ease the communication challenges that exist in school activity programs.”
As a part of the three-year agreement, BAND and the NFHS will conduct a “Communicate Better” campaign to promote a healthy school communication culture. Through this campaign, BAND will provide qualifying schools with a $1,000 donation when their school teams and clubs start communicating through the app.
“We’re looking forward to this incredible opportunity to collaborate with NFHS to support school athletic departments,” said Steven Lee, U.S. General Manager for BAND. “As a communication service dedicated to providing a safe and efficient communication for school programs, we’re excited to work with NFHS to provide schools with a service for bringing teams closer together.”
The BAND app, which is available at no cost on iOS, Android and desktop, is already being used by more than 500,000 leaders, managers and coaches, and millions of sports teams and school groups across the country. For more information, visit https://about.band.us.
“We are pleased to partner with BAND through the NFHS Network as well,” said Mark Koski, CEO of the NFHS Network. “The BAND app is also a great communication vehicle for schools to promote coverage of games on the NFHS Network. We look forward to our association with BAND.”
