ST. LOUIS, MO - KICK International™, serving the World Association of Kickboxing Organizations (WAKO) as the designated governing body for kickboxing in the United States, has partnered with local marketing agency Golden Services Group to launch its newly retooled website www.KICKInternational.org.
The complete redesign of KICK International™’s website features membership options allowing all athletes to create their own profiles. This allows them to promote their achievements and goals, as well as interact with other athletes.
It also includes a complete event component which helps automate a process that has always been a manual function for their organization. This not only saves time, but makes processing payments for events easier for both the attendees and the KICK Administration.
In addition, the upgraded website continues to post the latest kickboxing news and event announcements via blog. Updated rulebooks and forms are available for download. Equipment and merchandise may be purchased electronically.
“We’re very pleased with the new features our website can provide for our users both now and as it evolves in the future,” said KICK International™ Board President Frank Babcock. “Our updated website not only enhances our membership features but allows us a way to extend our communications online through other international organizations. Thanks are due in no small part to Golden Services Group.”
"Performing a website makeover is always fun for me, but in this case, this has been a very exciting project for our entire team!” said Julie Eudy, Founder and Creative Partner at Golden Services Group. “It's very rewarding to help an organization like KICK promote its message and empower athletes with the resources they need to reach their goals safely.”
“Our goal was to create a website that becomes a central hub for Kickboxing in the USA and allows the community to follow its athletes and the overall progress on getting Kickboxing approved as an Olympic sport," said Eudy.
The introduction of the website comes simultaneously with the announcement of KICK International™’s hotly anticipated “2012 Tournament of Champions” event to be hosted August 9-12th at the Greensfelder Sports Complex in historic Queeny Park, located in St. Louis County.
The 2012 Tournament of Champions will determine the group of athletes to represent Team USA Kickboxing in upcoming international contests, including the December 2012 Pan-American Championships in Brazil. The family-friendly event is open to the public, with spectator tickets available for purchase on the new website.
