Kids are made to play: jump, run, laugh and develop great relationships. In 2007, I created GrowingPro.com, an online hub for youth sports, for these reasons. My Role: Creator, Owner
As a parent, it’s always been important for me to get my kids into sports. It builds character, teaches invaluable lessons and more than anything creates lasting friendships. With more kids involved less in sport activities, I wanted to create an environment that was a tool for kids, parents and coaches.
I recognized a few major things lacking and I developed a social networking site to remedy the void. These we the biggest problems:
All the video being shot of kids playing, where does it end up?
Kids don’t have a dedicated source about diet, exercise programs and proper techniques.
I want to be on a secure platform with like-minded youth athletes.
Once I figured out the problems and the solution to those problems-it was go time! I put a team together to develop the site, got investors, and we were in business.
