WABA games started in the Chicagoland family room of Adam Mrowka in 2010. In an effort to keep Cole, his five year old son, focused on learning math he discovered that making a game/contest out of deliberate learning/practice helped to supercharge the progress. After using this methodology to teach his six year old son the Pythagorean Theorem (see video) Adam turned his gamifying practices to sports/soccer and WABA Development was born. In 2011 reasearch & training was moved to the Lake Zurich location. Five years of research, innovating, development & athletic training lead to the creation of WABA Research, LLC and a 4000 sf holistic test and development facility in Lake Zurich, IL was in full swing.
