Here’s something you don’t see every day in edtech but is very interesting: it’s an edtech platform that uses conversational AI to help young aspiring athletes gain access to elite mentorship and skills training from pro athletes.
MLB St. Louis Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol founded VS (pronounced ‘versus’) and has brought in an all-star team of athletes from various sports (thus far softball, baseball, soccer) including Adam Wainwright, Albert Pujols, and Fernando Tatis Jr. to help students train their bodies and their minds for peak performance.
With Versus, learners gain access to exclusive video content from pro athletes and coaches.
They engage with interactive video courses packed with advice and specific guidance on how to create and maintain high performance habits.
Areas of focus including Leadership, Coaching, Strength, Fundamentals, Adversity, and Focus.
Learners watch courses, ask questions, get better – and like so many great coaches, founder Marmol’s only question is, “how bad do you want to improve?” Learn more.
