NASHVILLE, Tn. (Feb. 9, 2021) — Tennessee State Soccer Association (a member of US Youth Soccer) and MOJO are proud to announce a dynamic partnership to put the magic back into youth sports by providing coaches, clubs and teams across Tennessee 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, TSSA 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.
Tennessee State Soccer Association 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. Tennessee coaches can download the free MOJO app
through the App Store and create a profile affiliated with Tennessee State Soccer Association. 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.
“What MOJO offers to our grassroots coaches is unparalleled,” said Hans Hobson, the Executive Director of Tennessee State Soccer Association. “We’re excited for our 3,000 coaches to see the caliber of content and curriculum that MOJO provides. It’s an incredible resource for us to provide to support youth soccer players across the state.”
“It is energizing to work with Tennessee State Soccer Association, 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 making coaching less stressful and fostering a more fun and meaningful experience for everyone on the field.”
The new partnership with Tennessee State Soccer Association 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 partnership also establishes MOJO as an Official Grassroots Coaching Partner of Tennessee State Soccer Association.
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 Tennessee will go back to supporting teams, players and clubs in need across the state.
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.
