Amazing membership management software

Coacha is an amazing product and we would be struggling without it. All our member records are now updated and we are now able to email certain membership groups within the club. The amount of time we are saving on administration is huge. The app on the phone is brilliant as the Coaches now use this for the register and we are able to check membership status on mobile devices/iPad at any time. There is no need to chase for payments as Coacha does it all.

Like what you see so far?

Then why not save time, stress and money, as well as simplify your admin at the same time?

We don't charge you more if you grow!

If your club expands, some organisations will charge you more in subscription fees. At Coacha, the no.1 basketball club management software, we don't believe you should pay more for putting in the work and growing your club. So, whether you've just recently started off with 20 people, or are an established club with 100+, you will always pay one very reasonable, fixed price. 

Absolutely no hidden obligations

We don't believe in locking you into a contract, so there are no annual fees to pay or papers to sign. Unlike with some of our competitors who offer ‘FREE Software’, we don’t insist you put all of your finances through Coacha. We don’t make any money from your transactions at all – other companies out there do, so be careful!

No fixed term contracts - cancel any time

While we're confident you'll love Coacha as much as we do, it's good to know you can cancel at any time. You pay us on a monthly basis – just like with Netflix. And, just like with Netflix, you're free to cancel your subscription with us at any time.

Basketball Club Management Software FAQs

What is the real cost of basketball software?

The devil is in the detail here as many providers hide their true transaction fees. In our mystery shopper research, we found fees as high as 20p + 4% per transaction, compared to Coacah’s 20p + 1%.

It doesn’t sound a lot, but when you add it up over the course of a year, it runs into thousands of ££’s.

For example, if you have 100 members and charge them £30pcm each, by using LoveAdmin you would pay £2,125pa in transaction fees. With Coacha you would pay only £1,044pa which includes our subscription fee of £25pcm and the transaction fees. So that’s a huge saving of £1,081pa.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What are the limits with Coacha?

There really are no limits. You have unlimited everything with Coacha. Members, coaches, classes and sessions, registers, subscription plans, email…the full works!

The only thing you pay extra for are text messages. And these are as low as anyone else in the market at 4.5p per text message.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is basketball management software easy for members & parents to use?

If you want members and parents to login to Coacha, then yes, your own bespoke ‘Member’s Portal’ is very easy to use. It has been painstakingly designed to be really easy to use, so there’s no excuse for people not to login!

Great for them, time saving for you, and having basketball club management software with your own logo on it really makes your basketball club look professional and well organised.

What’s more, members get to see all the personal info you have on them and they can update and/or download it if they want (great for your club’s GFPR compliance!)

There are also FREE Andriod and iOS apps available for everyone to use too. What’s not to like?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I use basketball software, will it help with my accounts?

Absolutely, as it keeps everything digital and streamlined. You can see whose has paid you what, when and how. Plus, you can keep a very close eye on how much money your basketball club is taking. And if it is losing anything from your people not paying you.

What’s more, accountants love basketball management software that they can download from and integrate your basket ball’s financials to the software that they use. Software like Xero, Quickbooks or Sage to name but a few all help with making tax digital (MTD)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do I need a card reader to take payments if I use basketball club management software?

No, you don’t.

Do away with the expense and hassle of terminals and readers. You can take card payments through Stripe and direct debits through GoCardless.

Need a member to pay for a T-shirt or kit? You can send them a one-off payment request by email or take a payment right there in front of them using the Coacha interface.

Not having a card reader not only reduces your costs but simplifies your online billing processes straight away. It also makes your basketball club look professional and well organised.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What happens if payments fail?

Let’s face it, payments do sometimes fail and for various reasons. Only the best basketball club management software has a payment retry process, especially one that retries up to four times.

Whether a bank error, a cancelled payment or just insufficient funds, having a robust subscription management system means you can simply ‘set and forget’ freeing you to get on with tasks that are more enjoyable than admin!

You can choose to be notified that a payment has failed and is being retried, or just set Coacha so that you’re notified when the last attempt has failed. Just think of the amount of time this will save you with chasing people for money they owe you…

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does basketball management app help me if I have an emergency?

When looking for the best basketball software or a basketball management app, choose something where you will always have Emergency Information to hand. It is essential you make sure you have emergency contact info available, as well as medical notes for all of your members.

Also, make sure that whatever basketball software program you go for it has the ability to work ‘offline’ for when you don’t have mobile internet access or a decent wifi signal. Coacha’s apps are designed to work without internet access and will automatically synch with Coacha the minute you get internet access again. Great for out in the middle of a field, or indoors in gym with thick concrete walls and zero reception.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What stats and figures can I get from basketball club management software?

Performance, attendance, and financial data are crucial for any basketball club that wants to stay at the top of their game. The basketball management app should show you instantly your member attendance levels and who’s been putting the work in, and equally as much, who hasn’t.

It should also give you easy access to your headline financial info whether for the last week, month or whole year. Quick access like this means quick decisions can be made and you’ll always be in control of the money in your club.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With accounting software for basketball clubs I’m told I still need to comply with GDPR – will it help?

Any organisation that collects personal data must comply with GDPR legislation, and that includes sports clubs. The very fact that you choose to use basketball management software (free download here ) itself will show that you have data protection built into the running of your club.

A bespoke ‘Member Portal’ such as those you get free with Coacha enable people to access the personal data you hold on them. Basketball software with this functionality will also give your users the ability to edit and download their data if they want to. This type of advanced functionality really is the gold standard of GDPR compliance.

Want to really get to grips with GDPR, why it’s important and what you should be doing to keep your club compliant? If you do then download our FREE GDPR in sports guide which not only explains GDPR but also gives you practical tips you can implement immediately.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can I get free attendance registers too?

Any basketball management software that’s worth considering simply must have automatically generated attendance registers. Having these automatically produced for you saves both time and hassle with your basketball club’s admin. They should be 100% free too and not an add on or upgrade feature.

You should be able to quickly add members in, set up your classes and hey presto, your registers are automatically created. When you, your coaches or your members log in, they get to see what's on straight away. This is essential in any basketball club management software or basketball management apps.

Coacha’s advanced attendance register features mean that you can enable classes or sessions that people can book straight on to without coming to you first. On the day of the class itself they can also check themselves again without tying up any of your staff’s time.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can people book on to classes themselves?

Not all basketball software (UK or overseas) allows members to book on to classes directly themselves. However, by enabling ‘make class bookable’ in Coacha you can reduce your time on admin and speed up the way in which your members can register for classes.

Great if you run open classes that people can book onto if they want to attend, and with setting a class size you can ensure that your classes are never over-subscribed. Your members can simply log into your Member Portal and book up in just a few taps or clicks.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I only operate during term time – does this matter?

Many basketball clubs have term time/seasonal classes. The best basketball software should give you the ability to have start and end dates for your classes as opposed to just weekly or monthly options.

With unlimited classes and registers, Coacha is perfect for setting start / end periods to whatever you want. Great for school term-based classes as well as events such as one off competitions, or showcases or exhibitions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I get people turn up unexpectedly to my classes – how can I add these people?

It happens. People turn up unexpectedly to a class or event and you know that you need to collect some of their personal details just so they can join in. Some basketball management software doesn’t cater for this in a way that is quick and easy to sort out on the day.

With Coacha’s basketball club management software (free for 14 days), you can avoid delays when extra people turn up unexpectedly. Quickly add them to the attendance register without having to mess around with the app settings or add a full new member. Then, after the class, you can go back and add more of their details in when you have more time.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does dance basketball management software (free or paid for) help with safeguarding children?

When performing a basketball software comparison make sure that whatever you choose helps with safeguarding children. Make sure you are able to segment the children’s information so that only specific staff are able to see their personal information.

Coacha lets you set different levels of access as you don’t want people seeing the wrong data. The messaging centre also has NPSCC CPSU text and email rules built in so that people are unable to contact children directly without other’s being copied in. This can include other members, staff, parents and even your safeguarding officer.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can I send text messages to people using basketball accounting software?

Check out independent basketball club software reviews and always make sure that any software or app that you use only partners with industry leading SMS specialists. Coacha partners with the best SMS service in the UK - TextLocal. You'll enjoy amazing rates, quick delivery and accurate reporting. No need to use your mobile text allowance again!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I only want to message specific people. Can I do this with basketball club management software?

Being able to select and control who receives your messages is very important. You really don’t want to bombard people with messages not relevant to them.

Coacha enables you to customise who you send your messages to with ease. Send to just your coaches, members of a certain class, to a specific group, or to everyone ... you're in total control.
