INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – bookacoach, an Elevate Ventures portfolio company that provides an online marketplace for sports training, is pleased to announce that they have entered into a strategic partnership with ProCamps Inc., an organization that manages sports camps related to professional athletes.
The partnership will bring coaches who instruct at ProCamps across the country, to local communities year round, through the bookacoach platform by offering year round sports instruction for young athletes.
“The world's top professional athletes trust us to manage their sports camps,” said Andy Danner, Chief Operations Officer, ProCamps. “We've seen young athletes thrive under the instruction of our coaches in the camps they attend. Offering year-round instruction through bookacoach ensures that athletes can continue to train with the best even after the camp ends.”
“This partnership is a win for young athletes, parents and coaches,” said bookacoach Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Kevin MacCauley. “We want young athletes to have the opportunity to work with ProCamps affiliated coaches throughout the year. Parents will be able to use bookacoach to search for ProCamps affiliated coaches in their community, schedule and manage sports lessons for their athletes.”
ProCamps affiliated coaches are scheduled to be available for booking starting later this summer.
bookacoach recently formed a Sports Advisory Board led by Todd Sermersheim. Todd currently serves as Relativity Sports Football's Vice President of Sales, leading all football client endorsement sales efforts.
bookacoach, the destination for sports lessons, offers online tools that simplifies the booking, scheduling, and feedback aspects of sports instruction. All coaches must undergo the bookacoach background check, repeated annually. The process was developed with the guidance and support of local law enforcement and consists of a national, state and county level background check.
Since its formation in 2011, bookacoach has grown to become the nation’s largest online sports lesson marketplace of county level background checked coaches. To learn more about bookacoach, visit http://www.bookacoach.com.
