GROWING YOUTH SPORTS PARTICIPATION IS OUR PASSION
OUR MISSION IS TO REDUCE DROPOUT IN YOUTH SPORT BY HELPING ENSURE EVERY ATHLETE HAS A POSITIVE ON-FIELD EXPERIENCE
ATHLETE ERA WAS FOUNDED
While working with various sports organizations, Andrew and Corey witnessed the problems they were facing when implementing a player development-focused coaching style within youth programs. This inspired them to found Athlete Era.
BETA PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
Athlete Era believed mobile learning could provide a new approach to help sports organizations better distribute educational information digitally. After completing graduate degrees in sport science, Andrew and Corey assembled a talented team that built and tested the first Athlete Era mobile learning solution with Saskatoon Minor Football.
BEGAN FULL-TIME OPERATIONS
After having created a sport-specific mobile learning app that 92% of surveyed coaches preferred over alternative solutions, Athlete Era hired five employees and began working with Football Canada to improve and expand their mobile learning resource nationally.
NATIONAL APP RELEASE
The AQ Coach mobile learning app was promoted nationally in youth football leagues across Canada. Our unique mobile learning approach and software platform was adopted by other national football bodies, including USA Football and the British American Football Coaches Association.
