NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/13 -- Eagle Oil Holding Company (OTCQB: EGOH) announced the resignation of Brian Wilmot, Chief Executive Officer, and appointed Andrew Barwicki as the company's new Chief Executive Officer. In conjunction with the management change, the company intends to change its name to InPlays Sports Corp.
InPlays Sports Corp. is a New York-based company engaged in the youth sports market. InPlays Sports Corp. allows all youth sports organizations (little leagues, high schools, colleges, travel organizations and independent leagues) to purchase equipment at the actual and exact cost the manufacturers offer distributors and retailers. We cover all sports equipment, including but not limited to baseball, football, lacrosse, golf, as well as the hundreds of other sports programs.
At InPlays, kids, student athletes, schools and youth sports organizations come first and an integral part of our daily operations is creating long-lasting partnerships and working with them to identify their needs and provide solutions that support their success.
The concept of affordable sports equipment has been with InPlays since its inception. Andrew Barwicki realized the high cost of sports equipment, all of which is attributed to the 'middle men' (distributors & retailers), and believed a better system can be implemented that would allow all little leagues, schools and every youth sports organization throughout the United States an opportunity to purchase equipment at cost.
In 2012, Andrew Barwicki purchased $16,000 worth of equipment for a little league. If the purchases were done at cost, the total cost would have been $9,000, saving the little league well over $7,000 in 2012 alone. Mr. Barwicki realized and understood a system had to be created that would allow sports equipment to be purchased at a price that eliminated the mark ups middle men took -- the '@COST' system was born.
Since then InPlays has shaped the future of purchasing sports equipment for all youth sports programs by creating the single largest distribution network in the world, creating unprecedented value and opportunity for little leagues, schools, and all youth sports organizations by partnering with manufacturers and therefore eliminating the middle men and all the markups. On average, a school system in the United States would save $27,000 annually on sports equipment and uniforms.
Each sports organization pays InPlays an annual fee and a handling charge for each order placed. Clients include 7,000+ little leagues, 3,000+ football programs, 740+ lacrosse leagues, 86,000 public schools, as well as private schools, independent leagues and various sports programs. Other organizations include Police Athletic Leagues, CYO basketball programs, Babe Ruth, among thousands of other youth programs. In total, the estimated market is 225,000 youth organizations in the United States alone.
ADDITIONAL CURRENT & FUTURE BUSINESSES
1. Tournaments - InPlays will be a nationwide provider of information and updates on tournaments. Many sports tournaments occur every day, however, there is no single place for that type of information. Tournament directors are advertising and promoting their sports tournaments through expensive advertising mediums, such as newspapers, Google, among other venues, and Coaches are constantly scrambling to find tournaments for their teams to enter. InPlays intends to become the leading internet destination regarding tournament information.
2. News - InPlays will provide youth sporting news. This is a very fragmented business throughout the United States. InPlays goal is to be the main source for news regarding youth sports programs. The InPlays system will allow students to be sports writers and journalists. We can have a student from every school be an InPlays Writer and submit their articles and sports coverage online, all of which then gets instantly published, posted on inplays.com, and disseminated accordingly.
3. College Scholarships - InPlays will provide all the services to high school athletes regarding obtaining college scholarship.
4. Message Boards - InPlays will provide every youth sports organization with a message board. Message Boards are where people can post messages, mainly their opinions. It is an interactive forum that generates significant users and viewers.
