Dartfish partners with Nike Sports Camps
ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Dartfish, a video solutions provider, today announced that Nike Sports Camps will offer Dartfish video solutions to young tennis players and athletes at select locations. The partnership will enable coaches to film the campers while playing tennis and other sports, compile the footage into a digital library of video clips highlighting movements with key positions, upload videos on Dartfish.TV for private viewing, analyze the movements, and compare them to a professional player of choice. As a result, coaches and players can review performances and recommend corrective actions.
“The use of Dartfish technology substantially helps our campers with fundamental improvement. It is one of the best learning tools available anywhere and we are incorporating it into the majority of our Nike Tennis and sports camps this summer.”
Headquartered in San Rafael, California, Nike Sports Camps is operated by U.S. Sports Camp (USSC). USSC provides high quality sports education and skill enhancement and is the largest sports camp network in the country.
“We run sports camps so that young athletes can get better, through concentrated training and high quality coaching,” said Charlie Hoevele, CEO, USSC. “The use of Dartfish technology substantially helps our campers with fundamental improvement.

“Empowering young athletes with the right training tools at an early age is crucial to enhancing their performance,” said Victor Bergonzoli, Dartfish’s chief executive officer. “Video is a powerful medium to learn and we are delighted that Nike Sports Camps has made it possible for these young athletes to experience the same sophisticated learning techniques that are used by professional players.”
Many Olympic champions use Dartfish video technology to train and enhance performance. During 2010 Vancouver Olympics, 112 medals were won by athletes using Dartfish video solutions. Dartfish enables users to create unique content, enriched with comments and illustrations, analyze multiple games and performances, and selectively share the videos on Dartfish.TV. These unique capabilities have already made Dartfish.TV the choice of winning sports organizations, and now the platform is being adopted by groups in education and other industries.
