Beyond Pulse and the ECNL (Elite Clubs National League) Partner to Enhance Youth Soccer Club Training

Partnership combines ECNL's industry-leading soccer development programs with Beyond Pulse's Smart Belt technology to help coaches create productive training environments for players.

PORTLAND, OR, February 13, 2020Beyond Pulse (BP), creator of smart wearable educational technology developed with the young soccer athlete in mind, has announced its partnership with the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), whose mission is to heighten the game for youth soccer through innovative, player-centered programs. 

Launching at the National Selection games this February and extending through the spring 2020 season, Beyond Pulse will equip ECNL member club's youth teams with Beyond Pulse Smart Belts and provide coaching education to ECNL coaches, players and parents.

"Beyond Pulse is excited to join forces with one of the most forward-thinking and innovative youth soccer organizations globally," said Mark Wilson, Co-Founder, Beyond Pulse. "More than a partnership, we aim to serve the ECNL and every partner club by supporting them in coach education with our own Active Participation metric and player development to make the game better."

Through access to Beyond Pulse Smart Wearable Technology and visibility into each session's Active Participation metric, the coaches, players and parents of ECNL will gain advanced insight into player health and training session efficacy, with the goal of creating elevated learning environments. 

"The challenge with wearable technology has always been the cost and the ability to easily use and digest information available," said ECNL President Christian Lavers. "Beyond Pulse has incredibly efficient technology and provides a simple and intuitive data summary that will help coaches and players understand a variety of work-rate, load and recovery issues quickly. Through this relationship we are excited to be able to offer our clubs the ability to test the product at no cost and risk, and to provide free use for top players and teams at marquee events."

Beyond Pulse is the proud presenting sponsor of the ECNL Girls "National Selection Games" and the ECNL Boys "Featured Match of the Day," two unique platforms at ECNL National Events throughout the year. Players participating in these matches will have the opportunity to wear Smart belts and receive personal data and analysis after the match. In addition, Beyond Pulse also will also be working with the ECNL Boys to unveil an exciting new award series that will focus on aspects of performance and leadership to be announced this spring.
