Our Mission

To create high quality content and educate the world on the rules of sports.

About Us

For many people, sports have become something that you’re just expected to know. However, Doug Gursha, founder and chief product officer of Rookie Road, wanted to change the playing field. After getting to college, Doug felt embarrassed by his lack of knowledge of the sports that were going on around him. Realizing that he wasn’t alone in his frustration, Doug created content that broke down the complex rules, concepts, and lingo of sports into easy to understand tutorials. His initial tutorials laid the foundation for the educational tool you see today, and he hopes that Rookie Road continues to help those who, like him, never had the opportunity to learn the basics of sports.
