U.S. Ski Team Announces Partnership With Jacuzzi® Brand
CHINO HILLS, CA (Dec. 2, 2015) – The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association has announced its partnership with Jacuzzi® Brand as the official hot tub of the U.S. Ski Team. As part of the partnership, Jacuzzi® Brand Hot Tubs will be integrated into athletes’ recovery at the USSA’s world-class training facility, the Center of Excellence, in Park City, UT. Jacuzzi® Brand is also a sponsor of the 2015 Audi FIS Ski World Cup this season.
Jacuzzi recognizes that high-performance athletes need the best hydrotherapy to perform at their peak. Jacuzzi® Brand hot tubs feature exclusive, highly-engineered jets precisely placed in seats sculpted to follow the contours of the body. While hot tubs are traditionally associated with post-athletic activity to aid in faster recovery from muscle exertion, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs also promote mental and emotional well-being for people of any physical ability.
“This is an incredible opportunity to partner with and support USSA athletes,” says Drew Meng, Senior Vice President/General Manager, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs. “With well-being at the core of all Jacuzzi® products, offering the ultimate hydromassage to support all people around the world who believe in the importance of self-care is a natural fit.”
Jacuzzi® Brand will be activating at this weekend’s Audi Birds of Prey Race in Beaver Creek with complimentary hot chocolate, photo booth and Jacuzzi® Rubber Duck. They will also host an autograph session with U.S. Ski Team athletes Tim Jitloff and Tommy Ford. After Birds of Prey, Jacuzzi® Brand will head over to Europe to follow the team throughout the World Cup tour.
“We continue to add sponsors to our USSA roster who want to use their partnership to help increase our opportunities to win medals.” said Michael Jaquet, USSA’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Jacuzzi is of course the lead brand in the category and the use of their technology at the Center of Excellence is a very welcome addition to the facility.”
