Calvin Morriss

Calvin Morriss has partnered with ILG Business to advise and review new ideas and features for the ILG Elite Sports App. With years of experience in the professional sporting world, Calvin has worked with Olympic medallists, the England Rugby team and GB Basketball to name a few. For ILG Business, it has been extremely beneficial working with Calvin as he has aided development and generated fresh ideas for the Elite Sports App, allowing ILG to drive forwards ahead of their competitors.

Here at ILG we are continually developing new ideas and features for the ILG Sports App to enable us to remain at the forefront of technology, which in turn allows our clients to stay one step ahead of their competitors. Calvin has provided an invaluable insight into the sporting world, giving ILG a brand new perspective when building and developing the Elite Sports App. This ensures that the application maximises key areas of communication, training and performance so that the results can then been seen in performance.

"The beauty of the ILG Elite Sports App is that it enables coaches and other support staff to make instant, informed and ultimately, better decisions for their team. I can think of no other application that drives communication between staff and players so well within a sporting organisation. Teams using the Sports App have access to an advanced platform which enables them to get the very best out of their players, which is essential for any elite sports club."
