Russell Wilson and Spencer Rascoff back MOJO, an app to help parent coaches find fun in youth sports
A search on YouTube for “youth sports drills” returns an endless scroll of every type of practice workout you could imagine. All levels of athletic skill and coaching style are on display in a dizzying stream of content aimed at players and parents looking for a better way to kick a soccer ball or pitch a baseball.
A new mobile app backed by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, former Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff and others is looking to become a singular, simplified destination for parent coaches and families of young athletes.
MOJO launched Tuesday as a “one-stop, coach-in-a-box” format that blends instructional know-how with technological ease. The goal is to make youth sports appealing for kids and parents, stem the tide of drop outs and build a business that taps into what makes youth sports fun.
