West Babylon, N.Y. - The East Coast Conference, through its partnership with PrestoSports, launched a new and improved www.eccsports.org on Tuesday afternoon. The redesign gives the ECC website a new modern look with improved features to improved the website user experience for all fans of the conference and its member schools.
"We are very pleased with the work that PrestoSports did again for us in this newest version of our East Coast Conference website," said ECC Commissioner, Dr. Robert Dranoff. " We know how important the website is to all our member institutions, their team members and the fans that support them. The new look is just another opportunity for us to help promote the great things that are happening in the ECC and we are proud to continue our affiliation with Presto."
Some highlights from the new www.eccsports.org include an improved Championship Central and a new Social Media Directory and Social Media Hub. The Championship Central section is larger and more vibrant with pictures of student-athletes, allowing fans to easily find information on all 18 ECC Championships.
Each sport specific page also has its own Championship Central, once again allowing fans to easily find championship information. After the completion of each ECC Championship, this area will also be used to showcase the season's champion.
The Social Media Directory and Hub on the website's home page, showcases the social media accounts of the ECC and its 10 member schools. Links to the ECC and school's Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram accounts are provided in the Social Media Directory. The Social Media Hub features three dropdown menus, allowing site visitors to cycle through the league and member school's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds without having to leave the site.
Other improvements or additions in the redesign include incorporating the new "ECC" secondary logo in the design, improved navigation in the sports dropdown menu, the addition of Hall of Fame, Elite 18, and Student-Athlete Advisory Committee pages, and the ability to navigate to the ECC Network from nearly every page on the website.
