Before The Partnership

The Big Sky has always been seen as an innovator among its peers in terms of prioritizing the student-athlete. With that in mind, they were looking for a way to provide value to their member institutions while also being able to create a consistent message across their over 1,400 student-athletes. Looking for an eLearning solution the Big Sky turned to Game Plan to fill that role.

Their Goal

The Big Sky wanted to equip their member institutions with tools for student-athlete development in an all-encompassing way. Ranging from eLearning courses and assessments, the conference also wanted the schools to have the ability to create a mentorship network as well as the ability to provide their student-athletes with job opportunities. Going full circle by helping their student-athletes make the big step into their career of choice.

The Result

The Big Sky Conference has partnered with Game Plan to equip its member institution’s athletic departments with tools to unify and enhance the student-athlete experience.
