(Augusta, GA)- - Paine College has partnered with SIDEARM Sports to launch a new athletics web site. The new home for the Lions will be www.paineathletics.com <http://www.paineathletics.com>  The new site can be accessed directly or by clicking on the athletics tab of the www.paine.edu <http://www.paine.edu>  web site.

The web site will be the source for all news, information, scores and schedules on all athletic programs at Paine College. It will launch with a unique new design and a number of innovative features including video clips, a revolving headlines area highlighting the top five athletic stories and plenty of content for fans of Paine College athletics.
 
“The new web home for Paine Athletics will be the one-stop shop for alumni, fans, donors, students, and faculty/staff to find the inside scoop on Lion Athletics.  The sleek, user-friendly design will allow our supporters to quickly access the information they need to follow the Lions,” said Tim Duncan, Paine College Athletic Director.
 
“Moreover, we will be able to drive more revenue by providing additional content for corporate sponsors in the Augusta community and beyond.  In the coming weeks and months, we will add additional content and features to better take advantage of the exciting new partnership with SIDEARM Sports and the SIAC,” Duncan said.

Paine College offers five men and five women varsity sports. Each sport competes at the NCAA Division II level and in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC). The website will be powered by SIDEARM Sports, a top collegiate athletic web-based content management solution that has a client list of nearly 500 colleges.

The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) announced the partnership with SIDEARM Sports, to redesign and vertically integrate all SIAC member schools’ sports sites under the SIDEARM banner in July 2010.
 
“Our SIDEARM software solution provides the SIAC with the tools to leverage the information on all sites, leverage the fan base of all schools, and also generate sponsor interest in being able to buy real estate for all conference members in one agreement with the conference,” said Jeff Rubin, SIDEARM Sports President/CEO.
