Cheltenham company gives away £3,000 worth of software to not-for-profit sports clubs

Coacha Press Release - 5th June 2019


A selection of lucky not-for-profit sports clubs are set to receive free licenses of an industry-leading sports club management software from today.

Coacha is a sports club management software which helps sports clubs step away from manual paperwork and digitalise the way they run their clubs. Coacha’s founders are sports coaches themselves and built the software to reduce admin time. Coacha does this through features such as digital registers, automated finances and working by GDPR/child protection best practice.


Coacha Non Profit Sotware



Coacha noticed that many not-for-profit coaches are paid purely in job satisfaction. This sadly means that some of these clubs can’t afford to pay for software to safeguard their members’ data properly. This is why Coacha are trying to help by giving away £3,000 worth of licenses.

After bringing West Bromwich Albion Academy Development Centre (Gloucestershire) on board back in 2018, Head of Player Development and Talent ID, Paul Gardiner says:

“Coacha’s GDPR efforts were imperative in our decision to join them. We couldn’t find another piece of software with features that were built around GDPR. Coacha immediately put our confidence in their ability to help safeguard our member’s data.”


Why not-for-profit?


“Whilst waiting for board approval of Coacha, one of our coaches said, ‘If they say no, I’ll pay for it out of my own pocket’.” – Coacha user.

When asked why they were generously giving away a number of Coacha licenses, Co-Founder, Jason Ayers answered,

“We have lots of non-profit clubs on board and find that in order to make their lives easier, many coaches pay for Coacha out of their own pocket as the club can’t afford to. Most coaches give up their free time to coach and won’t even get paid. We don’t think coaches should be using their own money to do something as essential as safeguard their members’ data. We decided it was time to do something to give back to sport.”


How to apply


You can contact Coacha to find out if you’re eligible to apply for a free license for your not-for-profit sports club by clicking here. If you’re not non-profit, but would still like to trial Coacha, you can sign up for a free trial here.

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!
