3d Lacrosse Announces Major Video Partnership with NextPro To Enhance 3d Events Experience, Bring UWLX To The Masses
DENVER — 3d Lacrosse, the nation’s leading lacrosse services company, has announced a major partnership that will make NextPro the official video partner for all of 3d Lacrosse’s products and services, including 3d’s national and regional events and the United Women’s Lacrosse League.
Previously known as Game Time, NextPro was founded in 2010 and is based in Los Angeles. NextPro, the industry’s leader in capturing high-quality game footage and creating premium highlight reels, has agreed to provide 3d Lacrosse with exclusive videography services through the spring of 2020.
NextPro will provide all on-site equipment and staffing and will be the exclusive provider of filming services for attending squads and players at all 3d Events.
“3d Lacrosse is committed to partnering with leading-edge companies that can help us deliver more and more value and better experiences to our customers,” said 3d Lacrosse CEO Greg Waldbaum.
“NextPro is without a doubt that kind of company and this is yet another example of 3d Lacrosse attracting a partner who we can work with to make a major impact on lacrosse and its growth.”
Additionally, NextPro will be the exclusive videographer for the United Women’s Lacrosse League – the first women’s professional lacrosse league, which was brought under 3d Lacrosse’s management in 2017 and enters its third season of action this summer.
The UWLX and its four teams – the Baltimore Ride, Boston Storm, Long Island Sound and Philadelphia Force – recently announced the 2018 schedule, which includes stops at many of the summer’s top girls lacrosse events, including the newly launched UWLX Summer Draw and the STX Rising Girls Showcase.
“It’s a massive boost to the UWLX to partner with NextPro heading into Year Three as this will give lacrosse fans the ability to see the world-class lineup of talent on these four teams,” said Kristan Ash, General Manager of the UWLX.
“We put together a terrific schedule and it’s incredible that NextPro will be filming all the action from every game this season. We know this will go a long way in growing the UWLX brand, engaging fans and helping us in our mission to inspire the next generation of women’s lacrosse players.”
NextPro will also help 3d Lacrosse in evolving its own media platforms and marketing efforts by producing a series of social media clips, promotional shorts and video features to share with the lacrosse world. Using action from the field, interviews, drone footage, GoPro shots and more, NextPro will help 3d Lacrosse’s marketing team drive engaging and creative content to lacrosse fans nationwide.
Additionally, NextPro will work closely with 3d Lacrosse’s leading coaches to help cull informative video content from the 3d Methodology, 3d Lacrosse’s one-of-a-kind teaching paradigm build on decades of collective coaching experience.
“NextPro is proud to announce its partnership with 3d Lacrosse, the leading brand in the lacrosse training and event space, offering 3d’s players and parents with unlimited film viewership, download and highlight reel products,” said NextPro CEO Amin Edalat,
“High-quality content plays a powerful role in unlocking every athlete’s true potential and we believe making that content more accessible can make a difference. With the largest nationwide coverage, more than 150 event in 2018, NextPro provides an unparalleled library of 20,000 games, to view or to download, for one low annual fee.”
3d Lacrosse leadership expects the NextPro partnership to help share the 3d Events experience with more and more lacrosse fans. 3d Events operates national and regional tournaments, including the Denver Shootout in Colorado, the Oceanside Hustle in Southern California and the FLG in 3d series.
“Not only will this partnership be a tremendous value-added for our event attendees, but it will also help us better capture and share the 3d Lacrosse experience with fans from coast to coast,” Waldbaum said.
“3d Lacrosse has evolved since our inception and we’re carefully choosing who and why we work with other companies. NextPro has a proven track record of success as an innovator in the world of video and multimedia content creation. This is an exciting time for 3d Lacrosse and our many student-athletes, coaches and the great number of people in the sport who experience 3d in some way, shape or form.”
