Catapult exists to build and improve the performance of athletes and teams. With precision engineering at the intersection of sports science and analytics, Catapult products are designed to optimise performance, mitigate the risk of injury, and quantify the return to play. Catapult began in 2006 as an Australian start-up focused on elite wearables and has since become a category leader in elite sports technology, completing a number of key acquisitions over the past few years. This includes the purchase of Canberra-based GPSports in 2014, market leader in video-based technology XOS Digital as well as Ireland-based Playertek in 2016, and most recently SportsMed Elite and Baseline athlete management systems in August 2017. Over the past ten years, Catapult has provided performance analytics to the world's leading sports organisations. Teams such as Brazil, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Saracens and the Australian Cricket Team have all benefited from Catapult insights, as well as organisations, leagues and governing bodies such as the England and Wales Cricket Board, NRL and La Liga. Today, Catapult has over 300 staff based across 16 countries worldwide, working with over 1500 elite teams from 35 different sports globally.
