    Episode 4: Survive or Die with Ziad Tleimat

    Hi everyone, Jennifer Pivnick here – join in on my great conversation with Ziad Tleimat the CEO of ZimCode - an innovative youth sports technology company. One of my favorite solutions of his is TeamRunner, this platform enhances the customer experience (parent/manager/coach/club) at a tournament or league travel event - Enhanced customer experience always wins! I love this product because it solves so many of the problems in that arena, it tracks the data for you so you have negotiating power later, or just so you can see the buying patterns of your costumers. Anyway we don’t even really talk about that on this show, rather we discuss the need for youth sports to take a pause and analyze how they are running their business. Look at the way you are managing the process, millennials are your new customers and they demand more, so the challenge remains evolve or die. Ziad is so passionate about helping the youth sports organizations that his company is offering to pay them! – applications for their $1500 grant end May 31st Learn more here https://www.trvlish.com/covidscholarship

    Take Action and Support PLAY Sports Coalition –


    Background PLAY Sports, which stands for Promoting Local and Youth Sports, represents a united front to support young athletes, working families, coaches, and volunteers across all 50 states, particularly those in underserved areas, through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.


    PLAY Sports’ mission is to ensure that the institutions connected to youth and local sports survive and thrive coming out of this pandemic. Sports provides significant benefits to young people including physical, social, emotional, and cognitive benefits. Sports also provide youth with opportunities for building character, leadership, and resiliency. The youth sports experience can help society return to a sense of normalcy post COVID-19 by creating community, connectivity, and joy.


    As a community, the PLAY Sports Coalition is calling on Congress to help mitigate the devastating losses to the youth sports sector by extending existing programs: 1. Creating a $8.5B relief fund for the youth sports sector 2. Creating a federally funded and operated Youth Sports COVID-19 Task Force to establish guidelines and protocols for the safe return and continuation of youth sports programs and support their implementation.
