Press Release:

… the ChalkUP app brings a world of gymnastics to the fingertips of iPhone and Android phone users everywhere. It provides gymnasts and coaches a unique platform to share and compare gymnastics skill videos and connect with the global gymnastics community right from their smartphones.

A first of its kind, ChalkUP brings together gymnasts of all ages from all over the world with their friends, family, fans, teammates and coaches and creates a gymnastics-centered, social sharing community. Rather than endlessly sifting through Facebook and Instagram news feeds only to gather bits and pieces of gymnastics- related content, ChalkUP is ‘All Gymnastics, All the Time.”

ChalkUP users will have the ability to upload, share and comment on gymnastics skill videos, follow their friends and favorite users, enter and vote for videos in gymnastics-themed challenges, win virtual awards, create a customized profile and track their personal skill progress within the app.

“With millions of gymnasts worldwide, we wanted to create a unique platform to bring them all together. One of the greatest elements of ChalkUP is the virtual challenge, which allow gymnasts from anywhere in the world to compete with other gymnasts with just a few touches of their screen. It brings the competition right to their smartphones,” said Randy Sikora, founder of ChalkUP.

ChalkUP will be available as a free download in both the Apple App Store and Google Play for iOS and Android devices beginning in February 2015.

Please visit www.chalkup.net for more information on ChalkUP, including screen shots, video and the opportunity to participate in an exclusive “pre-launch download.”

The ChalkUP app was created by Randy Sikora, owner and founder of USA Competitions in partnership with developers MSI Mobile Solutions in 2014.

surfers, skateboarders (or skiers/snowboarders) won’t be feeling so left out of the tracking trend if this Kickstarter campaign hits its funding goal. Trace is a monitoring device for action sports practitioners to catch data on every wave, turn, flip, landing and so on — and a corresponding app so they track their performance and see how they rank against others. …

Those guys raised more than the $150,000 start-up money they needed. Looks like it’s going to be made commercially available by February 2014.

Jess from GymCastic linked to this. And asks whether we should be testing it with Parkour, Trampoline, Gymnastics, etc.
