STACK Media and Axon Sports announce exclusive cognitive training and content partnership. Axon Sports will be STACK’s exclusive cognitive training expert; providing insights, case studies and cognitive performance improvement tools to all athletes. In addition, Axon Sports’ technology will be made available at certain STACK Velocity Sports Performance facilities, enabling unprecedented access for athletes to ‘Train Above the Neck ™’.

STACK is always looking for ways to help our audience of athletes improve their performance through safe and effective methods,” says Josh Staph, STACK’s SVP of content. “For years, that has come in the form of information and tools aimed at helping athletes develop their bodies. By partnering with Axon Sports, we now look forward to educating millions of athletes and coaches on the crucial element of cognitive training. Axon is the leader in that space, making them the perfect partner for this effort.”

Jason Sada, President of Axon Sports, said, “This is an exciting partnership for Axon Sports. STACK is the premier provider of performance content, tools and training to the next generation of athletes. STACK provides athletes, parents, coaches and trainers with authentic training, nutrition, motivation, skills and gear advice from the best athletes and performance experts. We will now provide STACK’s athletes with brain training content, tools and advice that has historically only been available to the most elite athletes. We see great growth potential in the cognitive assessment and training space for elite athletes and, eventually, all athletes. Our partnership with STACK will now allow us to introduce our technology and cognitive training to athletes at all levels.

We continue to work with thought leadership partners like the GSK Human Performance Lab, NFL, MLB and NBA teams and top collegiate programs; the addition of STACK as a partner is a natural fit to bring all athletes a competitive edge and help them ‘Train Above the Neck ™’.”
