EAST WINDSOR, Nj. (March 30, 2021) — New Jersey Youth Soccer Association (a member of US Youth Soccer) and MOJO are proud to announce a first-in-the-nation partnership to put the magic back into youth sports by providing coaches, clubs and teams across New Jersey with a one-stop coach-in-a-box mobile app that takes the aggravation and chaos out of coaching.
The partnership comes at a crucial time in youth sports as COVID-19 has compounded existing challenges for teams and coaches across the country. As the spring 2021 soccer season approaches, New Jersey Youth Soccer and MOJO hope to enrich and improve the grassroots soccer experience with easy-to-use technology and world-class educational content developed by top coaches, experts and elite athletes.
New Jersey Youth Soccer coaches and parents will be able to access the free MOJO app which features exclusive short-form videos customized to age and skill level with one-touch tools to plan fun and engaging practices. New Jersey Youth Soccer coaches can download the free MOJO app on their mobile device and create a profile affiliated with New Jersey Youth Soccer. Once they create a profile, they will have access to MOJO’s library of content and practice plans personalized to their preferences and their team’s needs.
“MOJO will significantly enhance the experience of our grassroots coaches,” said Evan Dabby, Executive Director of New Jersey Youth Soccer. “We are excited to offer this great resource to support youth soccer players across the state of New Jersey. We think coaches will find great value throughout their seasons utilizing the MOJO app and its videos.”
“We’re thrilled to work with New Jersey Youth Soccer, helping support the return to play and bringing the magic back to youth sports,” said Reed Shaffner, Co-Founder and COO of MOJO. “MOJO is all about saving time on preparation and planning, and making time on the field more fun and meaningful.”
The new partnership with New Jersey Youth Soccer represents MOJO’s commitment to building strategic relationships with leading youth sports organizations, clubs and teams in the U.S. and around the world.
The free MOJO app provides everything a coach needs for a season of soccer with one team and one practice per week. Coaches can also upgrade to MOJO+ for $19.99, with additional content and features, including unlimited practices per week and the Ask-A-Coach feature for 24-hour access to experienced MOJO coaches. A portion of all MOJO+ proceeds from New Jersey will go to support teams, players and clubs in need across the region.
MOJO is on a mission to make youth sports more fun for everyone – one kid, one coach, one family, one team at a time. Launched in early February 2021, MOJO is a robust digital platform that empowers parents who coach youth sports to bring world-class training to the largest pool of players in the world – kids aged 13 and under. MOJO believes that youth sports have the power to transform lives, not just for the kids on the field but the coaches and parents on the sidelines. MOJO is committed to equity, inclusion and helping to level the playing field for kids everywhere. For more information, visit www.mojo.sport.
