The CoachUp Story

CoachUp: Achieve Your PotentialThe best way to explain what CoachUp is about is to tell you my own sports story.

Because I was a tall kid who loved sports everyone always assumed I’d be a natural at basketball. And, although I did make my high school freshman team, I was really just an average player who really wasn’t going anywhere.  Then a director at a summer camp suggested I work with private coach.  But it turned out to be a long struggle to find someone good who could help me at my precise level.  Nevertheless, after a frustrating period of discouraging false starts, I finally found my coach.
