Only by giving our best can we hope to spread knowledge and passion for the games we love to the next generation of global ballplayers.
Parents need a safe and straightforward process for finding, vetting, and connecting with professional instructors.
Coaches need a steady stream of new clients, along with an seamless way to manage and retain their old ones.
We've built SeamsUp to be the ultimate solution for both players and coaches looking to grow their games.
For coaches, we started by going radically against the heavy profit-sharing models of other companies that often left instructors holding the short-end of the financial stick in every lesson transaction.
Instead, we made all the tools coaches need to leverage their expertise while expanding their brands completely free.
We are committed to solving the challenges of well-known former or current pros and college coaches who have so much value to pass on to budding ballplayers but little time and no previous platform to connect them in a meaningful way with their fans.
And are equally committed to the local league coach looking to give back or the recently-finished-playing up and comer new to private instruction and all this personal branding stuff, but hungry to teach.
The best lesson experiences in the world entail measurable growth for both players and coaches, and this is what we are after—relentlessly.
For parents and their ballplayers, we started with not asking for a $25 placement fee just to connect them with a local in-person coach.
But we didn’t stop there, of course.
Online lessons had gotten a bad wrap, as coaches were forced to hack together sub-par solutions using 3-5 different pieces of software to touch base, give feedback, and collect payment for a single hitting lesson.
Many parents doubted how effective remote baseball and softball lessons could even be.
So, aside from creating a single, simple solution to all types of in-person and remote training, we built SeamsUp’s online lessons specifically to take advantage of the newest scientific research around how people learn.
Insights from the literature on mobile, micro, and delayed learning, expert modeling, video analysis, and both the spacing and Zeigarnik effects are baked into our DNA.
Mike Rogers has spent a lifetime entrenched in baseball and softball as a player, a private instructor, a training facility owner, and the son of two college-level coaches. Previously, he headed marketing at Athpro360 and founded Applied Vision Softball.
He has also co-owned and operated a large indoor baseball and softball training facility with his family for over 14 years, giving him the opportunity to work with hundreds of private instructors--including former major leaguers, softball Olympians and pros, and innumerable college coaches of all divisions.
He’s helped many of these coaches with systems and frameworks to leverage their success in the game into successful businesses.
