Seacoast United Sports Club, an athletic organization offering team-based sports across three New England states, has implemented Comcast Business (NASDAQ:CMCSA) Internet and Business VoiceEdge services to manage facilities and team sports across its 11 locations. The business services deployment is intended to enable organizers, coaching staffs and families to stay better connected, both on and off the field.

Seacoast United works with more than 10,000 children across five sports: soccer, field hockey, baseball, softball and lacrosse. Its largest facilities in Epping and Hampton, NH, offer strength and conditioning, operated by Exeter Hospital & CORE Orthopedics Athletic Performance Center, as well as an onsite restaurant operated by Lexie's Joint.

"Our biggest priority is making sure we are buttoned up on the field and developing athletes in a professional environment. We need to know that our customer amenities and operations off the field are just as robust as our coaching procedures," said James Peterson, sales and marketing director at Seacoast United. "We require reliable technology services that allow our sites to coordinate schedules and teams while providing our families with connectivity options including Internet access on the sidelines."

Seacoast United implemented Comcast Business Internet services at each of its 11 locations, including Wi-Fi access for guests. Each location is also connected via Comcast Business VoiceEdge services.

"We have more than 10,000 people visiting just our Hampton facility weekly, let alone across our entire footprint - reliable, efficient Internet services are an imperative," said Peterson. "Our goal is to be 'New England's Home for Sports.' By partnering with Comcast Business, we are one step closer to achieving this goal. The credibility the company has, in addition to their technology services, strategically elevates our organization."

"Comcast Business is a community-focused organization similar to Seacoast United. We aim to provide technology services that meet the needs of our neighborhoods' families and partners today and into the future. As Seacoast United becomes the New England home for sports for all ages, we will work with them to provide the corresponding Internet, phone and entertainment services they need to support their growth," said Steve Walsh, vice president, Comcast Business Greater Boston Region.
