Salt Lake City, Utah (March 8, 2021Givego, an on-demand virtual coaching service, today officially launched the company’s proprietary learning community, enabling aspiring athletes from a variety of sports to be coached remotely by top professionals anywhere in North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Filling the gap between in-person lessons and online videos that range in quality, Givego’s one-of-a-kind virtual learning community connects users to certified sports coaches, instructors, and top professional athletes, through an easy to use and intuitive app, allowing anyone the ability to work on their form whenever and wherever it’s convenient for them. Featured sports currently include skiing, snowboarding, golf, disc golf, lacrosse and now with new brand partner, MasterCraft, waterskiing, wakeboarding and wakesurfing. 

Users simply upload a video using their mobile device, describe what aspect of their sport they are looking to improve, and their professional coach can respond within minutes. It’s easy, fast and helpful.

“Givego is the future of learning, coaching and mentorship,” said Givego founder Willie Ford. “It’s a win-win proposition as well. A young kid with big dreams or an adult looking to improve their skills can connect to some of the most experienced experts in the world, while the revenue generated for the experts can help them underwrite their training while giving them a platform to connect authentically with their fans.”

As part of its launch, Givego is pleased to announce a new partnership with the MasterCraft Boat Company. This exclusive partnership, which will include annual Givego memberships for customers who purchase new boats this year, will tap new MasterCraft owners into the company’s pros and coaches as a value-add that underscores the brands’ commitment to its customers.

“At MasterCraft we’re constantly striving to enhance our customers experience on the water and Givego can help do just that,” MasterCraft CRO, George Steinbarger said. “It’s a great means of not only showcasing our top-level athletes but connecting them directly to the public and ultimately helping people build their skills behind the boat.”

MasterCraft featured athletes include Steel Lafferty, World Wakeboard Champions Harley Clifford and Meagan Ethell, pro wakesurfer Austin Keen, World Waterski Champions Freddie Winter and Freddy Krueger, and more.
