Streamlined and efficient

Where to start? First of all, the ease of use and simplicity of this software means even the non-computer savvy user can easily work this software. The sign-up form contains all of the questions you need, and you can add more. The payment system was setup with ease … a timesaver for the clubs treasurer. All of my coaches have access to the details they need, and nothing more which keeps it even simpler for them. If you have a club that has membership fees and want to jump into the 21st century, then Coacha is exactly what you need.

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 football 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.

Few providers can make all of these claims. But we can.

Football club management software & football club management system  FAQs

Finding the right football team management software for your club can be tricky. There are so many different systems/apps that it usually takes weeks of research to narrow down the right one. Here are some of the most common questions we get asked around swimming club software.

What is the real cost of football team management software?

The devil is in the detail here as many providers hide their true transaction fees, whereas we don’t.

In our mystery shopper research, we found fees as high as 30p + 4.2% per transaction for taking card payments. Coacha’s equivalent fees are 24p + 1.2%. 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 clients and charge them £30pcm each, by using LoveAdmin you would pay £1,972pa in transaction fees. With Coacha you would pay only £1,104pa which includes our monthly subscription fee as well as all transaction fees. So that’s a huge difference of £868pa.

To see the calculations for the above and LoveAdmin’s extra monthly charges click here: Love Admin fees.

(figures correct as at October 2021)

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

What are the limits with Coacha?

There really are no limits. You have unlimited everything with Coacha. Members, coaches, 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 a football club management app 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 football software with your own logo on it really makes your football 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 do my football club management online, 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 football club is taking. And if it is losing anything from your people not paying you.

What’s more, accountants love it when people like you do their football club management online as they can download from and integrate your football club’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 do my football club management online or use a football club management app?

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 football 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 football club 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 a football club management app help me if I have an emergency?

When looking for the football club management app for your football club, 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 football software 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.

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

What stats and figures can I get from football club software?

Performance, attendance, and financial data are crucial for any football club that wants to stay at the top of their game. The best football club management system 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 football club management software 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 football clubs. The very fact that you choose to use football club management software 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. A football club management system 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?

When you do your football club management online you simply must have automatically generated attendance registers. Having these automatically produced for you saves both time and hassle with your football 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 sessions 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 an essential factor to look for in any football club software.

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

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

Can people book on to sessions themselves?

Not all football club management apps or software allows members to book on to sessions 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 sessions.

Great if you run open sessions that people can book onto if they want to attend, and with setting a session size you can ensure that your sessions 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 football clubs have term time/seasonal sessions. The best football club management system should give you the ability to have start and end dates for your sessions as opposed to just weekly or monthly options.

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

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

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

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

With Coacha’s football 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 session , you can go back and add more of their details in when you have more time.

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

Does football team management software (free or paid for) help with safeguarding children?

When performing a football team management 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 football team management software?

Check out independent football 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 football club software?

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

As part of your football club management system, Coacha enables you to customise who you send your messages to with ease. Send to just your coaches, members of a certain session , to a specific group, or to everyone ... you're in total control.

Comparing Coacha with other software and apps?

A few things to remember…

Firstly, we don't charge by the member, as that gets costly for you. Also, we never show adverts to your members. And we don't charge for updates, nor the use of our iOS & Android Apps. Above all though, we don't add silly amounts of money on top of transaction fees.
Few providers can make all of these claims. But we can.

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

I’m a parent but I can’t access my child’s account. Why is this?

The main reason you can’t access the Coacha soccer management software to view your child’s account is that the club owner hasn’t ‘Enabled Member Login’ in their club settings. Also, sometimes it’s because we don’t have a valid email address in our system belonging specifically to you.

Please ask your child’s coach or team administrator to to resolve these issues, so that you can book your child to sessions, pay fees, see attendance info, download receipts, and more.

The Coacha soccer club software makes it really easy for parents to stay in the loop!

Can I add people in to Coacha if they are assistant coaches or managers that are a part of the team?

Yes, we do need you to ensure that ALL officials of your team who are actively playing a role in the team’s management, are registered in our soccer club software. They can be added as players as well as coaches or admins.

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

Can I accept cheques as payment for club registration, uniforms, apparel, etc.?

Not directly, no. However, you can record a ‘cash payment’ in the virtual cash tin, making a note that the payment was actually a cheque. The Coacha soccer club management software is integrated with GoCardless and Stripe, and most people are happy to use these. This helps clubs to move away from accepting cheques as payment.

However, if there’s a payment method that you’d very much like added to our soccer club management software, then please let us know.

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

What is the best soccer club management software available?

Football Club Management Software – FAQs (Part III)


What benefits am I missing out on by not using your football team management app?

Quite a few actually! People who are using the Coacha football team management app are benefitting in several key ways – for example:

A new level of agility in how information is managed for decision making purpose – i.e. through statistics, player reports, general reports, etc. Thanks to insights gained from the football team management app, club owners can save time, money and effort when acquiring the necessary information in order to make well-informed decisions and see their club grow.

There’s also no loss of information every time a staff member leaves or old members decide to part ways. The information remains safe and intact in our football club management app’s secure servers, although we do delete it permanently if you specifically instruct us not to so do (after staff members or clients leave) and you stop using Coacha for some reason.

There’s also smooth and open lines of communication between you, your staff members and clients, so you are always in control and up-to-date on the ‘current situation’ within your club.

Finally, the level of accessibility available in the Coacha football club management app is unparalleled – it can be accessed from any mobile, handheld or desktop-based device.

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

Can I get a free demo to see how the football club management online platform works before I start paying monthly?

Unfortunately, we don’t offer demos for our football club management software, because you get something even better for your time and interest: a completely FREE 14-day trial to check out the full suite of features!

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

I’ve never ever used a football club management system like Coacha, in fact, I’m not even computer savvy. Will I experience any issues learning to use your football club management system?

Not at all! We get this question a lot and we pretty much provide the same standard response every time: our football club management system is super-easy to learn and use for users of all ages. So easy, in fact, that a primary schooler can set it up within minutes.

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

Does the Coacha football club software support rolling fee collection only or also one-off payments?

We’re delighted to report that our football management software supports both!

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

Is Coacha a football subs app because for now I need to use it only to manage subscriptions and collect fees?

It’s entirely up to you how you want to use the football team management software – so for now, if that’s to manage member subscriptions and collect fee, then yes, you can call it a football subs app. But again, it’s much, much more than a football subs app because it helps you manage so many aspects of your club from the palm of your hand.

For a complete features breakdown of our football team management software, please have a read.

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

Are email and text messages both completely free in your football team management software?

While you get an unlimited number of email messages completely free, text messages are also unlimited but we’ll charge you 4.5-5.5p per message, which is as low as any other soccer club management software available right now, if not lower.

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

Does your soccer club management software give members the option to book items, equipment or venues?

Yes! There’s a Venue Bookings option which you’ll find in the ‘Club Settings’ tab from within the soccer club management software, allowing your members to book training grounds or venues, areas in your training facility, soccer equipment, etc.

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

What is the Member Portal option in your soccer club management software?

If you enable this option in your soccer club software, you will get your own bespoke Member Portal completely free. This allows parents and or NOKs of younger players to log in and see their children’s info, in addition to what’s going on in the club. Adult members registered to use the soccer club software will also get their own login, meaning they can use the Members Portal to login from any device with a browser and internet connection. People can also gain access to the Coacha soccer club software, by downloading either our Android or iOS App.

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

What kind of child protection is there in your football organising app?

The Coacha football organising app has built-in child protection which is built around the NSPCC’s CPSU guidelines. This means members can only be contacted if they are over a certain age. Furthermore, underage members cannot be contact directly and only their parents or NOKs are communicated with from within the football organising app.

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

If my club starts to grow, will I be charged more to continue using the football organising app?

Absolutely not! No matter how much you expand and grow, the monthly charges you pay to use Coacha's football organising app remainethe same irrespective of how large you get.

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

Can I cancel membership to the soccer team management app at any time? Are there any charges involved?

You can stop using the soccer team management app at any time you deem feasible and, no, there are no cancellation charges at all because our soccer team management app is available to use on a pay-as-you-go basis only.

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

Do I absolutely need to use soccer team management software? Why can’t I just put everything down in a register or my computer? Won’t that be easier?

You can always bypass using soccer team management software and instead rely on pen and paper or your computer, but consider this for a moment: most football clubs today have evolved into complex organisations, where there is a lot of decision making going on – this requires access to key information across all levels.

Now, let’s say a new sports director is appointed to manage the club – they will need to start all the work related to player analysis, coordination, work methodologies and strategies, sports management, and medical/facilities management from scratch. Even though the sport director will be very thorough, efficient and professional in acquiring all key information (for decision making), if none of this is reflected at the end of the season, or say, the sports director leaves, then the next person will again have to start over.

With soccer team management software, everything is on record and accessible within seconds, making management and administration of the football club super-easy and time-efficient.

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

Does the Coacha soccer software have any COVID19-safety features?

Yes, quite a few, actually!

The self-reporting feature in our soccer software, for instance, allows members to report if they are affected by COVID-19 or going into self-quarantine through your bespoke Member Portal. You’ll get an immediate notification through the soccer software, which means you’ll be able to act quickly too.

Another COVID-safety feature in our soccer management software is the Track and Trace feature which lets you see at a glance who has been in contact with who, and whether someone has been affected by the virus in any way.

There’s also the Bookable items and venues feature in the soccer management software which means you can programme bookable slots in order to have ‘COVID clean down time’ between each booking.

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

Does Coacha help coaches or instructors conduct 1-to-1 sessions?

Yes, our soccer management software offers a variety of useful features to help your coaches conduct 1-to-1 private sessions. You can read about them here.

Comparing Coacha with other software and apps?

A few things to remember…

Firstly, we don't charge by the member, as that gets costly for you. Also, we never show adverts to your members. And we don't charge for updates, nor the use of our iOS & Android Apps. Above all though, we don't add silly amounts of money on top of transaction fees.

Football Management App – FAQs, Part III


Do I absolutely need a football management app? What are the consequences of not using one?

Well, you could always manage your club without the aid of football management apps, but you could potentially miss out on a lot by not using one. For example:

  • The ability to access every member’s details no matter where you are.
  • Having all crucial member details to view anywhere, whether for your club management or a medical emergency.
  • No paperwork or registers as everything is accessible from within the football management apps, giving everyone a single point of access, from you and your coaches to players and their parents/NOKs.
  • Effortlessly schedule classes and ensure that everyone is aware of those schedules or any changes to them.
  • An easy way for players to sign up and register with your club, making your business look professional, while also helping you build trust and credibility with your target base.

Is Coacha in the same category as “football apps for free”?

Coacha is certainly among the football apps ‘free to download’ category, but you do need to pay to use it once the free 14-day trial is over.

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

I’ve used a free app for football recently which I liked but Coacha seems to have better features – is it fee to use too?

While the premium version of Coacha requires a monthly payment, Coacha Lite is a completely free app for football which you can try today, although you won’t find the same premium features. 

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

Does Coacha have the same features as free football apps?

Even better! Coacha is way ahead of the curve, compared to the vast majority of free football apps available today. Take a FREE 14-day trial to see what we mean!

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

Why can’t I use Coacha like a free football app?

Well, there’s a couple of reasons for this:

  • Even though we do offer a free football app called Coacha Lite, we always encourage everyone to try the premium version as it offers some amazing features for almost a fraction of what you would pay to access the same features in any other well-known/mainstream football coach app.
  • In order to keep adding great features to our football coach app, we too need to stay in business just like you, hence the really competitive monthly fee.
  • Offering a football coaching app completely free means that we’ll have to charge you somehow (eventually) through micro-transactions, in-app purchases, contract renewals, etc. We have no plans of doing that – ever!
  • Most football coaching apps that you see for free aren’t really free to be honest – they always find a way to sneak in charges for this or that.

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

Can a football coaching app help me grow my business?

Well, by definition, football coaching apps are not designed to help businesses grow but here’s an interesting fact: football coach apps like Coacha help organisations like yours passively grow – by welcoming players with an easy registration process and allowing them to communicate with you in just a few taps, for instance. When people see how reliable you are as an organisation and how easy it is to approach you, your business will start to expand – perhaps faster than you had anticipated!

By using football coach apps like Coacha, you can not only grow your business but also have more time, energy and resources to focus on other growth areas, such as sales, marketing and customer service.

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

Most apps for football coaches are either very complicated to setup or demand a gradual learning curve – is Coacha the same?

It’s unfortunate how most apps for football coaches make their users go through a steep learning curve – Coacha, on the other hand, is all about ease-of-use and user-friendliness. It’s super-duper easy to setup and even easier to use.

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

Can Coacha be used for football pitch booking or venue booking?

Oh, absolutely! Coacha can be used for a lot more than just football pitch booking, allowing players to book everything from pitches and training halls, through to equipment and physios. If it’s bookable, then you can set it up to be booked through Coacha! 

This guide has everything you need to know about booking venues through your football team app.

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

The football team app I was previously using was far too expensive and I had to stop using it – is Coacha just as expensive?

We totally understand this – after all, you’re in the business of not just producing skilled football players but also growing and profiting as a business. We assure you that our football team app offers one of the lowest rates, compared to even the top-tier football team apps available today the same fantastic features but you pay practically a fraction of the price. Coacha has actually saved clubs several thousands of pounds a year, so why don’t you see if we can do the same for you?

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

Football team apps that I’ve used in the past either lack the features I need or simply have far too many features that I won’t ever need to use – is Coacha on the same level as these other football team apps?

We understand how frustrating this can be. Most football team apps offer features which you may not need, or they don’t have enough features, or they force you to pay extra to use the full suite of features.

However, Coacha is one of those football team apps where we did a lot of careful and meticulous research into the features that would fully be utilised during football club management. As a result, we’ve developed an app which has really simple and straightforward features but also those which you will fully utilise during football club management. The best part though? The fixed monthly price unlocks all the features from the get-go!

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

Can Coacha help me improve football team management?

Yes, it can. Coacha is an excellent tool for effective football team management because it has integrated communication features – such as automatic notifications and bulk SMS/email broadcasting – to keep the lines of communication always open between players and coaches. So, if you want to manage a football team with ease, Coacha is the way to do it!

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

I’ve never used any kind of software or app to manage a football team – is Coacha really complicated to understand and use?

Not at all - managing a football team with Coacha is super-easy. The user interface is straightforward and simple-to-use yet intuitive, and the team communication features alone making managing a football team a total breeze!

Comparing Coacha with other software and apps?

A few things to remember…

Firstly, we don't charge by the member, as that gets costly for you. Also, we never show adverts to your members. And we don't charge for updates, nor the use of our iOS & Android Apps. Above all though, we don't add silly amounts of money on top of transaction fees.
Few providers can make all of these claims. But we can.

We understand how not everyone is tech-savvy and we’ve specifically designed the football booking system to meet the needs of every user, no matter what their level of technical and/or computer skills. Think of it as the traditional, decades-old “CRT tube” TV with knobs and sliders but all the features and functionalities of the latest smart TVs!

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

When choosing a football booking system, what kind of features should I look for? 

There are quite a few features you need to check for to make sure that your football booking system is going to serve you well over the years.

However, one of the single most important features to look for in a football booking system is for your members to be able to easily book practice sessions online.

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

Can Coacha be called a “football organising app”? What does it help me organise exactly?

Yes, many of our users refer to Coacha as a football organising app and it can help you organise everything from online practice session and venue bookings, to allowing your coaches to book both 1-2-1 and private group sessions online through the football organising app.

In addition, the Coacha football organising app has digital attendance registers which helps you track attendance in a quick and seamless manner. You can also use your football organising app to view club stats at a glance, which can help you better organise future events and even fine-tune sales & marketing strategies should you have one.

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

Can you explain how the Venue Booking feature works in your football pitch booking system?

Venue Booking is a really useful feature in our football pitch booking system which allows you to make football pitch, venue or specific equipment bookable, by simply giving players access to this feature from the football pitch booking system.

You need to set up Venue Booking first by logging onto your football pitch booking system and then access Club Settings from the main interface. Next, find the ‘Enable venue bookings’ section, enable it, and you’re all set.

Once the Venue Booking feature is enabled in your football pitch booking system, you can create individual timeslots so that your players can book into them whenever they need a football pitch for training sessions. You can even name your bookings so as to better acquaint the players – e.g. you can call it “football pitch” booking, “football ground booking”, “football gear/equipment” booking, and so on.

If you look for the venue timetable in this section of your football team management software, you’ll find that it has everything you need to know, including how to set timeslots and even make the Venue Booking feature available to specific players, according to their level of subscription or membership. However, if you need an easy and insightful guide to all the Venue Booking features in your football team management software, you can find it here.

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

Is the Coacha football software free to use?

We wish! Coacha is ‘football software for free’ for the first 14 days but after that, you need to pay a really low monthly price to use it. It’s also football software ‘free to download’, unlike some of the other football registration software providers who are charging users even to download their app.

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

Can football registration software help me attract more players?

One of the things our football team management system does particularly well is let players sign up with ease when they log onto their football team management system from a supported device. You can upload your own custom form too along with a ‘T&C’ document, so that players can conveniently consent to your terms while signing up for a membership! This will definitely help to attract more prospective players.

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

I’ve read mixed reviews on some of the best football team management apps available today – can Coacha beat any of these “best football team management apps”?

We honestly believe that it takes a lot for a piece of software to be called the “best football team management app” and while we’re not big fans of self-praise, we will say that Coacha has been designed by sports coaches for sports coaches and players.

Our users feel that it is the “best football team management app”, given the easy-to-use options, premium features which rival the best football team management apps, but at an amazing price point – not to mention the innovative session booking and venue booking features, and how easy it is to manage the day-to-day admin affairs of your club.

But don’t just take our word for it – try out the football team software absolutely FREE for the first 14 days.

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

How do players book venues, football pitches or any items I make bookable through the football team software?

This is really easy to do:

Players can access the sessions booking and venue booking feature by first logging onto their pitch booking app, either by using a desktop PC, tablet or smartphone, and then finding the ‘Book a [name]’ option under the main interface. They will then choose a timeslot – from the ones you have made available, that is.

At the time of creating bookable sessions and venues in your pitch booking app, you can also add any guests – for example, if your players will be accompanied by a friend, family member or relative. Finally, your players will choose their mode of payment (unless you have already included booking charges in their prepaid membership) and then hit ‘book’.

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

I need help with setting up 1-2-1 bookings in the pitch booking app – can you show me the steps?

Certainly! Simply find the desired coach’s profile in your pitch booking app for which you need to enable the 1-2-1 sessions booking or private group booking option (or both), and then manage their timeslots from thereon, even though you can give them the privilege to manage timeslots on their own too when they log onto their pitch booking app.

The next thing you want to do is access the ‘People’ tab from your pitch booking software’s main interface. There, you will find Timeslot Booking Settings. Everything is self-explanatory and clearly laid out, giving you a variety of options to set in the pitch booking software as far as session bookings go.

Need more insights into how 1-2-1 bookings and timeslots work in the pitch booking software? Here’s an easy-to-follow guide

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

Can the language be changed in my pitch booking software?

Unfortunately, this isn’t possible at the moment as Coacha is only available in English, the most commonly spoken language in the currently supported regions – i.e. the US, UK, EU, AU and Canada.

However, you can definitely change up specific terms in your pitch booking software, such as:

  • ‘Session’, ‘Practice’ or ‘Training’ instead of ‘Class’
  • ‘Player’, ‘Client’ or ‘Student’ instead of ‘Member’
  • ‘Instructor’, ‘Trainer’ or ‘Teacher’ instead of ‘Coacha’
  • And so on

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

What is the Member Portal feature in my soccer club management app and how does it work?

The FREE Member Portal included with your soccer club management app allows both your players and coaches to login from their chosen device at any time, and view everything from club stats to class schedules, attendance registers, the latest news, and more.

The Member Portal can be used by your players to view training session timeslots, book sessions and entire venues, and conveniently make payments for their monthly subscription/membership. It can even be used by parents or NOKs of young players (if you’ve given them access) to view communications relevant to them as, all the transactions they’ve made (if they are over 18) or, for example, which upcoming events they will be participating in.

Similarly, your coaches can log onto the soccer club management software to make training sessions and timeslots available and track attendance as well as the progress of each player. Please keep in mind, however, that you will need to setup your Member Portal login as the administrator or organisation owner. Once you’ve set this up, you can enable Member Portal logins for your players and coaches as well.

If you want to know more about how to access the Member Portal and create logins from your soccer club management software, then this useful guide is all your need.

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

Can booked sessions be cancelled by players themselves using the soccer club management software or do I need to do it for them?

Your players are always at liberty to cancel booked sessions themselves directly from the soccer club software – they can do this by heading to ‘Your Classes’ from the main interface and then selecting ‘Cancel’. However, you do need to give them permission to book/cancel sessions when setting up bookable sessions/classes from your end in the soccer club software.

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

How do I assign Member Portal logins to my players so that they can use the soccer club software to view certain information?

This is really easy to do from your soccer coaching software – after logging in, find the ‘Your Members’ tab from the main interface. Tap on ‘Set member logins’, and then the ‘Send to Everyone’ tab will be checked automatically in the soccer coaching software.

You also have the option to send login details to specific players or groups only – all you need to do is uncheck the ‘Send to Everyone’ tab and choose the players/session/group from the dropdown menu. Then proceed to ‘Add’ and once you’ve added them, click on ‘Send Login Request’.

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

Does the soccer coaching software download require any fee or charges?

None at all! You can grab your soccer coaching software download right now absolutely free – a privilege even most “soccer coaching software free download” offers are not providing. Sure, it may be advertised as “soccer coaching software free download”, along with many other marketing tactics to rack up their download statistics, but it is rarely “free”. On the other hand, our soccer management app is totally free to download AND try for free during the first 14 days.

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

I’m not familiar with how to create bookable sessions through a soccer management app – can you show me how to do this?

Absolutely!

After creating a bookable session or class through the ‘People’ tab (accessible from the main navigation bar) in your soccer management app, look for a checkbox at the bottom: “Can people book onto this class?”

You need to check this box and choose the maximum number of players who can book onto the class/session* you’ve just created.

*Please note that you have the option to change the language in Coacha so you can rename ‘Classes’ to ‘Practices’ or ‘Sessions’, or ‘Coaches’ to ‘Instructors’ or ‘Trainers’, for example.

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

Can I allow my players to pay for any bookable sessions on a pay-as-you-go model?

Yes, this is totally possible to do from your soccer management software;

Once you make your sessions ‘bookable’ in the soccer management software, additional options will now show up – one of these options says ‘pay-as-you-go’. Just go ahead and check that. Now choose how clients pay you, so if you’re already connected with GoCardless or Stripe, that’s awesome as it’s a brilliant way to collect online payments through your soccer management software with minimal transaction charges, and zero transaction charges from us on top of that!

Alternatively, your players can also pay in cash through the soccer registration software, although most clubs are trying to get away from this.

Naturally, the ones coming under ‘paid’ have already paid their club subscription fee through the soccer registration software. The ones shown as ‘‘pending’ have yet to make their payment. So, with people paying in cash, just hit the ‘make a payment’ button against an individual payment and the status will be changed. As long as they have funds in their account, the soccer registration software will register it as “paid”.

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

My players have different subscriptions so can I set who can book training sessions through the soccer software and who can’t?

We thought club owners might need a feature like this in their soccer software at some point, so you bet there’s a way to set who can book onto sessions or not!

Once you’ve created a class/session and made it ‘bookable’, simply look for the checkbox: “Restrict Member Groups’. Now choose the groups who can book through the soccer software and who can’t. And, you’re done!

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

I wanted to add additional membership options in the soccer software sign-up form – is there a way to do this?

Absolutely! Through your soccer team management app, you can add as many subscription plans as you like to your football club sign-up form – helping your players to easily choose their desired subscription plan right there and then.

Just log onto your soccer team management app and access ‘Club Settings’ from the main dashboard. Then go to ‘Club sign up form’. Next, look for ‘Add payment to your sign up form’. Now, you can offer players the option to pay on a recurring model or a one-off/pay-as-you-go model.

There’s just one small step left: pick the subscription(s) you want players to see when they sign up and then click on ‘Add subscription plan’. This needs to be clicked on every time you want to add another subscription option. Now hit ‘Save’ and voila! All the subscription options you just set in your soccer team management app will now appear before you and your players when they sign up.

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

What if I need help with setting up my soccer team management app as this is the first time I’m using a soccer team management software like Coacha?

Setting up your soccer team management software has never been easier. Here’s a really easy and friendly guide through which you can set everything up* in your soccer team management software in just 5 simple steps.

*Want to change up some of the terms in your soccer team management software? Coacha offers the option to change the terms, so you can rename ‘Classes’ to ‘Practices’ or ‘Sessions’, or ‘Coaches’ to ‘Instructors’ or ‘Trainers’, or ‘Member’ to ‘Player/Athlete’, for example.

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

Can my club’s Terms and Conditions be updated directly through the soccer team software?

Yes, this is possible and really easy too:

Choose ‘Profile’ from your soccer team software’s main dashboard. Then go to ‘Club Settings’ and then ‘Signup Form’. Go ahead and remove the current T&C document which was attached when you created the signup form in your soccer team software. Now use the ‘Upload a file’ option to upload the latest T&C document, so that the next time your players or coaches log onto the soccer team software, they will receive a notification that a new T&C document has been uploaded which requires their consent. This notification will also be sent to them automatically via the football academy management software in the form of an email.

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

My football academy software does not seem to be accepting payments from some of my members – what could possibly be the issue?

While the Coacha football club administration software does work seamlessly with nearly all major debit cards, you do need to make sure that everything is A-OK with your member’s Current Accounts. But if you’re still experiencing issues accepting payments from members as part of their connection you’re your football club communication software, then check if:

  • The account info they have given you and you’ve used in your install of Coacha’s football club database management online has sufficient funds, and;
  • They have joint permissions from the people listed as signatories on the account as multiple signatures will be required on these types of accounts.

Other than that, you may want to check with GoCardless or Stripe to make sure their network isn’t down. If you still can’t figure out why your football club database management service won’t let you make/receive payments, please submit a ticket so we can investigate the matter further.

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

What kind of security measures are there in your football club database management software to keep my personal data safe?

In addition to complying with the NSPCC’s Child Protection Safety Unit (CPSU) guidelines, we also help you to comply with GDPR regulations. Just by using Coacha itself you’ll be squaring away up to about 80% of your GDPR needs (the rest you need to ensure from your end) – while our servers are encrypted with the latest in SSL technology. Plus, our team never access any user data unless they are working on the system for things like product updates, support or problem solving.

In short, we have taken every step possible to ensure that your data remains safe when you’re using our football club management service to communicate with your coaches and players.

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

Are GoCardless and Stripe the only two modes of football club payment processing available in Coacha?

No, your football coaching & administration app also supports the ability to record bank transfer and cash, in addition to Standing Order and BACS payments. However, we’d still recommend sticking with GC or Stripe as they’ve got some of the best transaction rates in the industry, but more important than that, your soccer management system will never pile any additional charges on top of that (like other apps do).

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

I sometimes don’t have an internet connection – can pitch booking apps like Coacha be used offline?

Yes, our football management software for your agency, club or organisation can definitely be used offline with minimal functionality, but you will need internet access to use Coacha fully.

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

I’ve seen a lot of ads for free football software – is it truly “free”?

Us too! These ads for free football software often flood the internet without warning and we’ve to admit, some of the free football systems ads do make it very enticing to download, even if you end up paying a small fee later down the line.

However, the thing with free football systems is that they are rarely ever truly free. You can bet they will charge an administrative fee just to let you try it out for “free” or ask for credit card details as you are about to download them – and you can guess what happens next!

Coacha will never mislead you in anyway: it is totally FREE to download and try for the first 14 days and then, you pay a really awesome price each month to keep using it.

Comparing Coacha with other software and apps?

A few things to remember…

Firstly, we don't charge by the member, as that gets costly for you. Also, we never show adverts to your members. And we don't charge for updates, nor the use of our iOS & Android Apps. Above all though, we don't add silly amounts of money on top of transaction fees.
Few providers can make all of these claims. But we can.
