"The #SuccessProject will help us continue our mission and provide a powerful platform for people of all abilities to showcase what is possible through sports."

SKLZ has enlisted the services of elite athletes: Anthony Bass of the San Diego Padres, Iron Man triathlete Charisa Wernick, Track Star Milena Glusaz, former soccer player and current triathlete Katie Morse, and professional cyclist Alison Marie Tetrick, to post weekly blogs about success and how they strive to achieve their goals and elevate themselves as athletes on a daily basis, so that they may reach the elusive destination: Success…

Stories can be posted online or via feed to a mobile friendly site at Every story submitted will be shared along side posts and videos from world-class athletes including: Albert Pujols, LaMichael James, Kyle Harrison, Megan Willis, and professional coaches and trainers.
