What does ‘Create Great’ mean?

April 2019 Update

We can't believe it's been nearly five months since this blog post was published. Five months of the focus on #CreateGreat in the UK. We're super excited to be bringing Coacha and its mission to #CreateGreat to the USA. With V2.5 updates pending and V3 aiming for launch around next season., there's never been more of an exciting time to be involved with Coacha. USA-based clubs who are interested in trialling a new database software can register their interest here.


First of all, Happy New Year! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are arriving into 2019 full of motivation and ambition. The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that Coacha now has a little tag line: ‘Create Great’.

We thought we’d tell you what it’s about.

Coacha’s main aim has always been to help coaches and club owners save time on admin, so they can spend more time doing what they love; coaching.

Our entire team is full of sports coaches. We’ve been the new, shy, wide-eyed child who stood at the back of class; the struggling early teen who wouldn’t have stuck at their passion if it wasn’t for their coach; the thriving athlete, winning medals, competitions and the respect of other athletes and coaches; and now we’re on the other side, as the coach.

We know first-hand just how influential and important coaches are to their athletes, and we want to allow you to focus more on ‘creating greatness’ in yours.

Create Great was founded on the principle that every high-level, well-known athlete in the world has a coach (or coaches) behind them, that helped them get there. From famous Footballers like Ronaldo, to Basketball players like Michael Jordan, to Boxers like Mike Tyson. These names are known throughout the world, but the unsung heroes in the background are the coaches that nurtured their talent, gave them the opportunities and helped them on their way to greatness.

The truth is, when you coach, you don’t just instil skill into the athlete, but the will to win, the drive to become the best they can be and the understanding of how to get there.

Create Great is all about that feeling when;


The shy little girl who wouldn’t speak or participate in her first few weeks of your class just received her first grading with distinction and is happy-dancing with her new club-friends.


when;


A young athlete who is becoming frustrated with lack of progression, perseveres with your help and support and ends up being selected to compete nationally.


when;


You see the joy on the faces of the team of misbehaving teens that you’ve worked incredibly hard to keep on track, after they win their first match.


And when;


The guy who you know has been dragging himself to training, overcoming many obstacles every night for the last year, gains his new belt in front of the rest of his team.
 



Create Great is simply instilling your knowledge, passion and encouragement in your athletes, to make them as ‘great’ as they can be. Our goal is to give you more time to do that.

 

Using Coacha, we really believe we can diminish that pile of admin, so you can spend more time ‘creating greatness’ in your athletes; in both sport and life.

Couldn't run my swimming classes without it now. The team are just great, really helpful, will always help you out. The system is really reliable - I tried a lot of different pieces of software and none matched Coacha for price and features. Thanks guys. x

We have just started using Coacha this season and honestly it is one of the best decisions I have made this year! I used to spend hours on admin, chasing people for payments, taking cash & cheques to the bank and then checking to make sure the payments had actually gone into our account. Now I no longer have to write out invoices or handle cash and Coacha wil... l do the chasing for payments for me - which is amazing! Whenever I have any questions I get straight on the phone and their amazing team have either got the problem solved in seconds, or they get back to me as soon as they can with a solution. I cannot recommended this software and the support team enough. Thank you from one happy and less stressed Cheerleading coach!  read more

Before heading into our second season as a club and doubling in size we were very apprehensive about the administration aspect. I am so grateful to have come across coacha as it has made my life seamless in terms of the membership process among other factors such as data protection. We have also set up a stripe account to collect our monthly fees and I am very ex... cited about this as it is going to completely eliminate the tiresome process of chasing people. The report section of coacha is also really handy to be able to track who has set up their subscription. Taylor & the coacha team’s response time to feedback is excellent and I have been very impressed with the service so far. Coacha is revolutionising the way we work and they are doing a fantastic job!  read more

The Coacha software has made managing our swim school so much easier! So simple and straight forward to use and saves hours of admin work.
No more chasing people for payments getting half cash half bank transfers or having to think who paid what, everything is sorted out with a click of a button! Highly recommend, great software!
