Athlete Connect

UI/UX + App + Web

I lead the design from the ground up on an athlete/coach connection platform called Athlete Connect. Former NFL player Brian Orakpo and brother/trainer Mike Orakpo worked with me at Perfect Presence to craft their initial branding into an app experience. Athletes will now have the ability to find a personal coach in their area who specialize in their sport and position, and they can book them right from their mobile device. Athletes will also be able to connect with one another to provide motivation and support. Coaches will be able to set offerings, acquire new athletes, and manage training sessions.

To comply with my non-disclosure agreement, I have omitted and obfuscated confidential information in this case study. All information in this case study is my own and does not necessarily reflect the views of Athlete Connect or Perfect Presence.

In the United States, it is reported that three out of four families have at least one child active in sports.
There are currently over 6 million children that participate in tackle football games and the number continues to steadily increase. On the other hand, the number of coaches has not followed that growth. There are an estimated 276,000 coaches in the United States. Those numbers create a ratio of 22:1 athletes in a team to any given coach. Unfortunately, there are just not enough coaches available to give athletes the attention they need to excel in their position or sport.
