After issues with their previous headset system that caused them to lose a very important road game last season, Head Coach Dan Gritti and the Rhodes College Lynx staff decided to upgrade to Connex, a system that wouldn’t let them down when the game was on the line. Having access to proven technology and a system that he felt comfortable using was very important to Coach Gritti since he had used Connex in a previous coaching stint. The ability to have the system grow with the program if they added coaches in the future as well as the opportunity to advance to the next stage of communications with CoachComm and the Tempest FX trade-up program was appealing to Coach Gritti as well.

“It’s good to finally have headsets that we don’t have to be concerned about. We can talk as a staff during the game at any time without interruption. This is an invaluable asset during games when the pressure is on and good communication is required to make the adjustments or decisions that will decide the outcome of the game,” stated Coach Gritti.

“It’s good to finally have headsets that we don’t have to be concerned about.”

As Coach Gritti continues to build a winning tradition at Rhodes, he and the rest of the staff know they can count on Connex and CoachComm to help them with all of their wireless communication needs now and in years ahead.
