We are Classlete

#ImAClasslete

 

High school athletes use our content, resources and platform to #BalanceItAll between school, sports and their social lives in order to help them be above their class, both on and off the field of play.

Is it difficult to #BalanceItAll between your school, sports and social life?

Are your accomplishments both on and off the field of play not being recognized enough?

Are you tired of being looked upon as just another high school “jock”?

Our mission is to help young high school athletes make better choices and live healthier lives.

Classlete.com is a social networking platform for Canadian and U.S. based high school student athletes between the ages of 13-19, who feel they are not being recognized for their academic, athletic and community accomplishments both on and off the field of play and who struggle to balance school, sports and their social lives.

We have developed an online platform that offers digital content resources as well as the ability for all members to have free and paid access to create and share their own custom Classlete Sports Card – an online proprietary digital sports card that empowers our members to showcase their Stats, GPA, and Community Volunteer hours and share it with their friends via social media on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

 We believe this will help high school student athletes have better access to educational and entertaining tools, tips and resources to balance it all academically, athletically and socially, connect likeminded individuals who have a sense of belonging to our community while motivating them to share their on and off the field accomplishments in a cool and fun way.

Members will also be able to create their online profile, upload their stats, videos, pictures and essentially use our platform to share their academic, athletic and community achievements.
