We create technology to help athletes and teams perform to their true potential

Our Story

Catapult has been empowering sports scientists, coaches and athletes to train and play smarter since 2006. This is our story.
Founded by Shaun Holthouse and Igor van de Griendt in 2006, Catapult was born from a partnership between Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) and the Australian Institute of Sport with the clear mission of addressing the fundamental questions in sports performance. This has remained the cornerstone of Catapult’s purpose as the company has grown from a small Australian start-up, to become a global category-leader in elite sports technology over the past decade.
The last few years have seen Catapult complete a number of key acquisitions. 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. Today, Catapult has over 300 staff based across 16 countries worldwide, working with over 1520 elite teams from 35 different sports globally. Catapult Group International Limited (CAT) is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.
