Team to Introduce Technology at Youth Football Cannonfire QB Clinic on July 25

TAMPA,FL, July 16, 2015 –The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will begin using the SIDEKIQ simulator football software developed by EON Sports VR as a supplement to their on-field work for quarterbacks when the team reports back for training camp beginning on August 1. Additionally, the Buccaneers plan to become the first NFL team to introduce virtual reality at the youth football level by incorporating instructional sessions featuring the technology at the Cannonfire QB Clinic planned for July 25 at Skyway Park in Tampa, FL.

“We are excited to be coming in on the front end of this new wave of technology that is designed to supplement the on-field and classroom work that our quarterbacks are already doing,” said Buccaneers General Manager Jason Licht.  “Obviously, there is no real substitute for being on the field when it comes to getting our players ready for game action. However, this virtual reality technology allows us to enhance the learning experience for our quarterbacks without requiring them to put in additional time on the practice fields.”

As the use of virtual reality technology continues to grow among college and professional sports teams, the SIDEKIQ simulator is the first computer modeling product that allows the user to input a playbook and an opposing team’s playbook seamlessly into the software. The system is extremely portable, requires only a specially-designed lightweight headset that works in conjunction with proprietary software, and can be used with any smartphone. Through the use of computer-generated graphics, the SIDEKIQ simulates game conditions and allows the user to custom tailor a virtual game scenario from the same perspective they would see on the field during an actual game or practice session.

“Virtual reality has become very popular in high school and college programs and there has recently been much more interest in the technology from professional sports teams looking to add to their teaching tools while limiting exposure to injuries that may occur in live-action situations,” said EON Sports VR CEO Brendan Reilly. “We are excited to get to work with the Buccaneers and provide their quarterbacks with the opportunity to train more efficiently than ever before.”

The Buccaneers will also make the virtual reality experience available to youth football players who participate in the team’s upcoming Cannonfire QB Clinic scheduled for July 25th at Skyway Park. The Clinic, which will include on-field as well as white board instructional sessions with Buccaneers alumni and former college quarterbacks, will run from 9:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m. The clinic costs $125 and is designed for players between 4th – 12th grades.

“The virtual reality technology that has been introduced by EON is a technological breakthrough that will change the way many coaches and players, at all levels of football, will approach game preparation,” said Buccaneers Chief Marketing Officer Brian Killingsworth. “We are excited to be able to roll out the same innovative technology that our quarterbacks are using to the participants in the Cannonfire QB Clinic program that we have introduced this season.”

    I am the co-founder of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently planning to grow my wholesale side of business. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I considered that the most effective way to do this would be to reach out to vape shops and cbd stores. I was really hoping if anybody could recommend a trustworthy web site where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Leads I am already examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most suitable solution and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
