Building healthy communities through sport

We're on a mission to build the greatest rec sports experience in the world for adults.

Why we exist
Loneliness and obesity are at epidemic levels in America. The number of people who say they have no close friends has tripled since 1985, and the percentage of Americans that are obese has increased from 30% in the year 2000 to 42% today. Recreational sports has an incredible, highly underrated impact on both of these problems. A recent survey of our customers revealed that 80% feel a greater sense of community from playing with us, the average player makes 6 new friends, and 9 out of 10 players report being more physically active.
 
The problem is that the average rec league is America has a 2.9 star rating on Yelp, and only 25% of adults, therefore, still play any sports. We're on a mission to change that by building the greatest rec sports experience in the world, and to scale it across America so that every adult has access to a game-changing experience.

Where we are
Having validated our business model and value proposition, we have joined the Capital Factory Accelerator and are stepping into the next phase of the startup journey - refining/expanding our product offering and scaling across Texas.
