Washington State Impacts Student-Athlete Development With Strategic Partnership

Washington State Athletics and the team at Athlete Network are thrilled to announce their partnership with the goal of engaging all current and former Cougar student-athletes. The partnership launches a branded technology platform to organize, promote, and track the programs and services offered to all current and former student-athletes in a centralized hub.

Competing at the NCAA Division I level, Washington State joins Oregon State and UCLA as the next Pac-12 Conference member to power their own customized athlete network using UNITE software.

"The Athlete Network platform will positively impact the development of our student-athletes and prepare them for life after WSU, a critical component of our strategic plan. We look forward to utilizing Athlete Network to provide our student-athletes with the tools they need to be successful." 
- Bryan Blair, Deputy Director of Athletics/Chief Operating Officer

Along with expanding career services, the technology solution will also immediately provide cutting edge data insights and reporting to athletic administrators as well as organize all resources and services in a central location, provide opportunities to consistently engage with athletic leadership, and offer a robust mentoring program for all generations of Cougar athletes.

"Partnering with Athlete Network provides an innovative platform for our student-athletes to focus on their career, leadership, and personal development. Athlete Network will allow us to enrich our student-athlete development programming, provide access to resources, and enhance student-athlete job placement. We look forward to working and growing with Athlete Network." 
- Shelby McKay, Assistant Director of Athletics, Student-Athlete Development

“It is a privilege to partner with Washington State in their initiative to digitally support and engage their student-athletes. Through UNITE software, they will be impacting their student-athletes with innovative technology to reach their full potential while on campus and in life after sports."
- Chris Smith, CEO of Athlete Network
