Soccer Division I
As a student-athlete, I often feel overwhelmed by my athletic and academic commitments. My coach at MyHuddle gave me the individualized support I needed to reach my personal goals. MyHuddle was a resource that helped me improve my performance on the field and in the classroom.
Soccer Division I
Too often we wait to reach out or ask for help once we've reached a tipping point. With MyHuddle, I got a trusted coach who invested in me early on and provided helpful tips geared to my personal situation. Now, I have a better toolkit to manage my academic, athletic, and mental performance.

MyHuddle is so much more that just “sports-based counseling.” It’s about bettering yourself on and off the court. A lot of my performance anxiety is deep rooted in things that have nothing to do with sports. Through understanding and accepting myself as I am, I’ve been able to begin to rebuild my confidence.
Soccer Division I
While a lot of us have great sports coaches and academic mentors, it's powerful to talk to someone who relates to all sides of the experience: athletic, academic, and extracurricular.

Do you provide therapy?
No, we do not provide licensed therapy. MyHuddle™ coaches are not therapists or medical doctors. In cases of emergency, call 911. If you're experiencing a clinical or long-term issue, see a medical professional.
What happens after I sign-up?
Once you complete this sign-up form, you will receive a text message from a MyHuddle onboarding specialist who will learn more about your preferences and match you to the right MyHuddle coach. You'll then log into the MyHuddle mobile app and get to meet your coach! Note: if we are at capacity, we will let you know and place you automatically on our priority waitlist to be matched to a MyHuddle coach when our service expands.
How much does MyHuddle™ cost?
We believe that cost should not be a barrier to high quality mental support for student-athletes. You can get started for free with a no-strings-attached consultation call with MyHuddle's CEO, Christina. If you decide to move forward in the program, MyHuddle is offering special membership pricing of just $25/week for a limited time for athletes who are members of The Hidden Opponent. This is more than 70% off the cost of traditional services which on average cost $200-300+ per hour. We can offer this competitive pricing while maintaining quality of coaching by delivering our services through MyHuddle's mobile-first platform.
I can't afford this. Is there still a way to join MyHuddle?
Absolutely. It is our mission to make mental coaching accessible and affordable to every student-athlete. In our current stage, our offerings are limited but we plan to launch more membership options and additional free services in the future. Join our waitlist HERE so you can be notified of new product releases, sign up to be a MyHuddle Insider to help inform the future products we build, and take advantage of our free tips-by-text program. You can also follow MyHuddle on instagram and youtube where we regularly share free mental coaching resources made for student-athletes.
What if I don't like my MyHuddle coach?
We do our best to match you to the MyHuddle coach based on your interests, goals, and preferences. If you start the process and feel your MyHuddle coach isn't a good fit, you may elect at any time to be matched to a different coach and we will work to make a seamless transition to another MyHuddle coach that's a better fit.
How do the video coaching sessions work?
The video coaching sessions are biweekly for up to 30 mins and conducted over zoom. You will work with your coach to schedule these at a time that is most convenient with your schedules.
How often can I text message with my MyHuddle™ coach?
Athletes can send text messages to their coach at any time but we ask that you please try to be respectful of business hours (Monday-Friday, 9AM - 5PM). You will receive a reply within 24 hours (and often times much sooner) to at least 5 text messages you send each week. After the fifth text messages in a week, your coach will do his/her best to respond in a timely manner but the response may not be within 24 hours. Student-athletes may also receive check-ins and tips from their MyHuddle coach via text. Responding to these texts is available but optional.
Who can sign up for the pilot?
The MyHuddle service is available for high school and college student-athlete based in the U.S. Athletes must be at least 13 years of age and if you are under 18 years of age, your parent or legal guardian must provide consent for your participation on our signup form.
My parents have some questions before I sign up. Can they talk with you?
Yes, we would be happy to speak to your parents and answer any questions they have. Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or have your parent call/text us at 424-352-0003.
As a parent, how am I involved when the athlete is using MyHuddle™?
If you'd like to join your athlete on their first video chat with their MyHuddle coach, you are welcome to do that. Once onboarding is complete, the coach will work with the athlete via text and video chat. This provides the athlete with a judgment-free space for self-expression and greater ownership of their journey. Additionally, all athletes who sign up must provide an emergency contact. If we ever suspect that your child may be at risk to themselves or others, we will notify this emergency contact immediately. If parents have concerns or questions at any point of the pilot, we'd be more than happy to chat. Just email or call/text us at 424-352-0003.
What is expected of me by participating in the pilot?
As an early member of MyHuddle, your feedback is critical to helping us achieve our mission and design a service that truly helps student-athletes. By participating, you'll be part of shaping the future of MyHuddle and we'll ask you to complete 2-3 brief surveys on your experience. While you can cancel at any time, our past work has shown that student-athletes get the most benefit when they use the service for at least 4 weeks.
Why is MyHuddle a weekly subscription?
We believe mental support shouldn't start and stop with an office visit. That's why MyHuddle gives members continued access to support and resources from their coach throughout the week. This comes in the form of video chats, on-demand messaging, text check-ins, and digital resources -- all sent right to you on the mobile app. The membership is automatically charged on a weekly basis but you can cancel at anytime. If you cancel in the middle of a week, your payments and service will end the following week.
