Whistle Sports is the first sports entertainment platform built to engage and activate the new generation of fans and athletes.
Combine the massive technology-driven disruptions in video content creation and distribution with a new generation of fans' demand for a personalized sports experience on every screen they use each day. The result is an enormous opportunity to build a sports media company a whole new way.

Rates of childhood obesity, cyber bullying, and substance abuse are sky rocketing. Over the past 3 decades, child obesity rates have tripled. 1 in 3 American's under 18 are now overweight or obese.
The average "digital native" in the U.S. spends almost 8 hours each day on screens. Sports is a solution and Whistle Sports is the first delivery system designed to each this generation in crisis, on all the screens they live on each day.
Current sports media does not effectively engage this new generation of fans. They are watching more recorded and less live TV. They are turning off the big screen and turning to the smaller screens, watching more than a third of their content on a computer, mobile device, or cell phone. They have much shorter attention spans and want to interact with their media.
Sports remain young fans' top entertainment choice, and they can choose Whistle Sports on every screen they use - T.V., web, mobile, or gaming platforms.
From exclusive behind-the-scenes access to athlete role models and pro leagues to user-generated content of young athletes being awesome - Whistle Sports shows fans that anything is possible.
Math and Science, self-confidence, sportsmanship, and teamwork - when you show, don't tell, sports is a series of compelling life lessons.
From passive viewing to active doing, don't just watch - do! We're leveraging top pro athletes, leagues and coaches to give kids and their families the tools to get healthy and active.
