AUSTIN, TX (Jan. 12, 2016) – The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) has announced a partnership with TriggerPoint™ Performance, a division of the Implus Corporation and leading performance, therapy and education product innovator, to be the “Official Self-Massage Therapy Devices” of the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding.
This three-year partnership provides TriggerPoint products and education to USSA athletes, coaches, and trainers annually for inclusion in their national training and education facility, the Center of Excellence, in Park City, Utah. At the Utah facility, the USSA provides leadership for thousands of young skiers and snowboarders at all levels.
