How does Virtual Coaching work?
Once a child practices and then uploads a video of themselves performing a particular challenge in the App they will submit it for approval from our trained team of virtual coaches. Virtual coaches provide upbeat feedback, and also act as a moderator to ensure that all content uploaded to the App is appropriate and does not give away personally identifying information.
