CoachUp’s One Year Anniversary


ann 2Time flies, that’s for sure.  We can hardly believe that this month we celebrated our one year anniversary.

Although we started out small, we had  big dreams…and still do.  We want to help kids change the trajectory of their lives through sports.  In just 12 months we have grown from zero to thirteen full-time employees with our very own office space in Boston, and over 7000 coaches across the country!  It’s been a blast and we’re incredibly appreciative of all the opportunities and support we’ve gotten along the way.

Here’s a quick look at what we’ve been able to accomplish in this short time:
