MiMentor, the digital sports coaching and learning platform, are proud to announce yet another electrifying new partnership, this time with Beyond Pulse.
Beyond Pulse, based in Portland, USA, create and pioneer in wearable monitoring technology that inspires and educates football (soccer) coaches in their pursuit of becoming the best possible leader for their players.
This marks MiMentor’s second big partnership across the pond, after teaming up with Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club last month.
Their Beyond Pulse Smart Belts allow coaches to effectively manage training session activity and engagement by tracking player’s heart rate, active participation, workload and distance covered.
The belts work in conjunction with a player app which allows both coaches and players to upload their training information and activity, in turn providing their coaches and club with weekly activity reports.
The partnership will see Beyond Pulse use MiMentor to help extend the depth of services and content they will be able to provide for their customers.
Beyond Pulse was co-founded by former Manchester United and FC Dallas midfielder Mark Wilson.
Wilson said, “Our partnership with MiMentor is about creating a place of learning that transcends the game. Our aim is to help coaches excel as teachers, players excel as leaders and parents excel as facilitators. Beyond Pulse and MiMentor will provide the opportunity and platform for each individual to coach themselves through engaging and interactive content.”
Tom Shields, Global Director of Club Development and Coach Education at Beyond Pulse added: “This partnership will be instrumental in allowing Beyond Pulse to provide an unrivalled level of online tech support and training to our users”
“Beyond this, our partnership with MiMentor means we will also be able to extend the incredible depth of insight and education available to our coaching community, utilizing material produced both in house and by our world-renowned friends and partners on the platform.”
“Simply, as the game and needs of our players and coaches continue to evolve, we are delighted to stand proudly alongside James and his team as we work together to deliver a world class service and the best possible educational experience for everyone in the Beyond Pulse family.
“We follow the phrases “every coach needs a coach” and “better coaches make better players” and our partnership with MiMentor will be key in helping us ensure the best possible youth soccer experience for the players of tomorrow.”
James Baker, Head of Development and Partnerships at MiMentor is delighted to team up with Beyond Pulse and is looking forward to working with the team going forward.
He said, “We will be supporting Beyond Pulse with a unique onboarding process for their members. The partnership will see Beyond Pulse utilise a white label version of MiMentor to engage their members in utilising their wearable technology but also to contribute to coach education.”
“This partnership will also see us develop content together to support the coach and player education which we are very excited about.”
All current Beyond Pulse users will receive a special discount to the content of the broader MiMentor platform as we work in harmony to fulfil our mission of developing the best possible coaches to guide the young players of tomorrow.
