The Center for Sports Skill Measurement & Improvement, LLC               Kevin Morse, CEO

     The Center for Sports helps student athletes improve, parents stay informed, and coaches discover new information on America's athletes like never before. The Center helps athletes of all levels reach their potential by providing a baseline, sport-specific skill measurement through its network of independent testers. This objective data is stored in a searchable database that may be shared with prospective college coaches, training facilities and others.

     Currently, the center offers test centers in 23 locations in 11 states and is focusing initially on baseball and softball players, but has plans to expand into many other sports, including hockey, football, lacrosse, tennis, golf, soccer and field hockey, as well as additional locations, in the near future.

     Kevin Morse brings baseball training and coaching experience to the center, as well as a graduate degree in International Business and over 15 years of practical, executive-level experience. He is joined by a partner, noted pitching and hitting expert Perry Husband who has over 15 years of research, teaching and training experience.

     The Company is seeking a minimum of $200,000 in bridge funding to expand marketing activities and add staff. Visit for additional information.
