Project idea

The app aims at providing athletes with tools and opportunities to show their talents in front of professional coaches. Athletes can upload videos, photos, and academic records, and share them all on the platform.
Coaches can discover information and connect with athletes. Both athletes and coaches can follow each other and get in touch via a chat.

Target audience

Two principal target audiences are athletes and coaches/scouts.
Athletes demonstrate their skills. They follow coaches and get in touch with them directly.
Coaches/scouts search and recruit new athletes. Also, coaches promote their teams, motivating talents to join them.

Project challenges

  • Flexibility remains one of the top requirements of the project. Software architecture supports project expansion: developers can add new features swiftly.

  • Strict requirement on budget limit.


Our team:

  • Made a thorough project analysis.
  • Prepared a set of requirements.
  • Delivered app design.

Our work resulted in:

  • Timely launch of an MVP.
  • Adherence to budget limits.

Main project

  • Athlete profile

    Athletes share the basic information such as country, sports, school and grade marks, etc. Then, the app team verifies essential information about the new users. This enhances smooth development of personal brands.
