Coacha USA launching soon & why we need the help of our UK users

Update 05/04/19

The website is live and the Facebook page is ticking away, it's very nearly time for this sports club management software to launch head-first into the US! We are achingly close to launch and we already have a fantastic level of interest from US clubs who are constantly scouting the market for new membership software to hit America. We're super lucky to have such fantastic UK users who are already spreading the word to their American friends who are searching for a better software for sports clubs.
 

As we're so close, if you know anyone in the US who is part of a sports club, please let them know about us. They can check us out here and register their interest here. We won't be long, we're just around the corner...
 


It’s been a busy year for us here at Coacha. Between releasing the 2nd version of Coacha last Summer, to launching our brand-new iPhone app, to lots of upcoming integrations and new users; it’s fair to say we haven’t been sat at Coacha HQ twiddling our thumbs...

After lots of hard work from all of the Coacha team, we are incredibly excited to be launching into the USA very soon! Over the last few years, we’ve had lots of people outside of the UK express interest in using Coacha. It's by popular demand that we are launching a USA version of Coacha for our friends across the pond!

This is an incredibly exciting time for everyone here at Coacha, but especially our co-founders, Chris and Jason. Coacha is more of a passion than a business to them. Most of you will know that they built Coacha because they couldn’t find software that they wanted to use for their own sports clubs. But in the initial years of researching the market, it became apparent to them that they wanted to create a piece of software different from the others. One that didn’t over-charge users and one that always had their best interests at heart.

Capitalising on the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) through 2018 and with an increased focus on safeguarding club members, Jason and Chris have developed a club management software that is totally unique from the others. With Data Privacy laws looking to change in the USA over the next year or so, the whole team believes that Coacha will have as much benefit on US users as it has on those in the UK.

Over the last few years Jason and Chris have spread this passion through their ever-expanding team of developers, marketeers, sales and support staff. We’re so proud to have an entire team who care just as much about Coacha as its co-founders


So why do we need your help?


It’s become apparent to us that through this whole journey, we’ve gained a large and loyal userbase who are always recommending Coacha to friends/colleagues/others online. For this reason, we’d love your help with something.

We know lots of you are a part of sport-specific Facebook groups/forums that are worldwide. Others of you work with American camps for exchange programmes or even have friends and family who live in America. We would love for you to let them know that Coacha is launching in the US and tell them how much it’s helped your club since you started using it. You can tell them how it’s helped with organising your finances, data protection, safeguarding and how it’s generally given you more time to coach.

Those in the USA who are keen to trial Coacha can register their interest here. We will keep them updated with launch information and even provide them with an extended trial period to celebrate the first month of launch!

Coacha has proven more of a success than we ever could’ve imagined in the UK and we’re beyond excited to be launching into the US market. And we promise, Coacha USA is coming soon.

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

Coacha is superb. I run a shooting range in Gloucestershire and it helps me keep on top of my admin. Helpful support. Very good software that they should charge more for!

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!
