At a Glance, How Can Coacha Help?

How does Coacha make your life easier? It is packed full of features, but getting down to the nitty gritty, you just want to make sure you're not taking on yet another task! Well, Coacha is designed to replace most of the things you probably already do, but that take a lot of time.

Manage Your Athletes and Coaches

No more folders, files or paperwork! Keep everyone's information securely in one place that's accessible anywhere and anytime. Athlete information, coach's notes, attendance records, parent/next of kin contact details and medical/injury history is all to hand with just a couple of clicks.

For clubs with more than one coach, you can create individual logins that allow access to all the important info, such as member details and class registers, while keeping club finances confidential.


Classes, Sessions and Attendance

Organising your classes and training sessions in Coacha couldn’t be easier. Create recurring classes or one-off events in just a few clicks then, once a session is set up, your register is automatically generated and ready to use. You set your recurring classes once, Coacha does the rest. Whether you are logging in on the iPhone app or on the main site, today's register will be ready and waiting!

Coacha collects and records everything you need to know about attendance levels and class performance. You can also check how your individual athletes are getting on thanks to member level attendance statistics and coach notes.


Cash, Subs and One-Off Payments

There are lots of services out there that can handle recurring payments via direct debit and card, but for Coacha, we wanted an integrated service that is as cost effective as it is simple.

That's why we've partnered with Stripe to bring you an easy to set up and use money interface. Through Coacha, Stripe handles all of your monthly subscriptions, one-off card transactions, and even cash payments in a handy virtual cash tin. The money dashboard is updated in real time, so you can see at a glance every payment that hits your account (and those that need chasing up, too!). To top it off, those who move their subscriptions to stripe will invariably save money on fees.

We chose Stripe because it is safe, secure and fast, while offering some of the lowest transaction fees* around. And as we understand that money can be tight, Coacha does not charge you a penny for Stripe integration.

Get the Message out There

Coacha helps you to stay in touch with your club members, parents and coaches from its easy to use broadcast system. With Coacha broadcasts, you can send messages to lapsed members, coaches, certain classes, member groups or individuals via email and SMS in just a few clicks.

We’ve even built NSPCC CPSU best practice guidelines into our broadcasting system, to ensure emails are only ever sent to the appropriate recipients. This of course offers added protection for your coaches and club members, and peace of mind for parents too.

*We are working hard to bring SMS functionality to you as cheaply as possible, so please be patient while we negotiate the best deals. We hope to make this feature available to you very soon!


Child Protection; a Serious Business

If you coach children, protecting their personal information is an integral part of what you do. Rather than using paper records that need to be watched constantly and could therefore be misplaced, keep all your sensitive information securely locked away in the Cloud.

Coacha's World-class servers are highly secure and backed up every day, so there is no need to worry about data being lost or falling into the wrong hands. And if you've ever wondered whether the support staff for this type of software (who have access to all of your information) are vetted, all of our staff undertake a full, annual DBS check.

By using Coacha’s broadcasting system, designed with the NSPCC CPSU best practice guidelines in mind, there is no better way to demonstrate that you are on top of child protection.


In Case of an Emergency...

Your athletes may be a tough bunch, but unfortunately, and in all sports, accidents happen. In the event of an emergency, how quickly could you access a member’s medical notes or next of kin contact information? Would you have time to rifle through paper records to check up on allergies if an ambulance needed to be called?

With Coacha, it only takes a couple of clicks to get hold of the essential information. Then you can get back to the most important task at hand, looking after the injured athlete.
