Lumin Sports to lay its U.S foundations in the Golden State


Lumin to base foundation operations on the West Coast

Adelaide, Australia, July 7, 2023 – Lumin Sports, the Adelaide-based sports technology  company, has chosen California for its base of U.S operations.


The move aligns with the company’s strategic objective to service growing U.S market demand and increase support for current clients – with many based in the West and Southern regions.


Lumin Sports CEO, Ben Tripodi, said it’s a significant step forward in the team’s mission to provide best-in-class sports technology to U.S coaches, athletes, and high-performance staff in their pursuit of success.


‘’After our platform was welcomed into the market by our foundation clients, we’re proud to be putting our roots down and bolstering our presence in the U.S,’’ Tripodi said.


‘’We’re looking forward to meeting the demand from high schools, colleges and elite programs for a platform that makes coaches’ lives easier and elevates the athlete experience.’’


‘’Our commitment is to be where the action is and support our clients in pursuit of their performance goals.’’


The decision coincides with the new appointment of Blake Bender as U.S Sales Executive.


As a highly regarded S&C coach who’s held senior positions at the Charlotte 49ers and most recently at Cal Athletics, Bender understands both the challenges facing high school, college and elite athletic programs as well as the solutions.


Tripodi said Bender will lead business development in the US and be supported by Head of Sales, Ben Gazzola and Director of Strength and Conditioning, Scott Caufield.


‘’Blake’s knowledge and experience puts him in a unique position to truly understand the unique needs of athletic departments across the U.S,’’ Tripodi said.


 ‘’Blake will build on the foundations laid by Ben and Scott and be the first port of call for coaches and directors looking for a practical athlete management solution.’’


Lumin Sports will be represented at the NSCA National Conference in Las Vegas, July 12-15, and the Power Conference in Austin, Texas on the July 22.
