In 2014, USADA’s TrueSport department partnered with USA Swimming to develop lessons for their popular Deck Pass app. Deck Pass has a reach of over 200,000 users and these TrueSport lessons reinforce values like sportsmanship, nutrition, and teamwork by having kids complete fun activities in exchange for cool virtual patches.
I was involved in the development of the initial visions for these lessons and wrote much of the user-facing copy as well as arranging the actual flow of the lessons in a program called Claro. With over xxx patch downloads in three ‘seasons’ of these lessons, the partnership has been a wildly successful one and I continue to edit the copy, give input on the direction of the courses, and organize them within Claro.
