How to forget about admin and make the most of your summer

How to forget about admin and make the most of your summer

Summer. It’s the season you’ve been waiting for! Some well-earnt downtime after a busy season of gradings, competitions, challenges and matches. It’s awesome to have a few weeks off and push club-life to the side for a little bit. But it won’t be long until the thought of organising your next season starts creeping back in.

We usually deal with 2 types of club owners:

1. The ones that spend their entire period of ‘downtime’ planning next season, so they have everything in place for September.

2. The ones that leave it until the last week of August to start organising everything.

There are downsides of both of the above. Those who spend all summer pre-planning their admin still don’t feel like they’ve had a break. They don’t really switch off and spend their whole summer trying to organise for next year. Those who leave it until quite late are often very stressed and not ready for the start the season.

But how do you find the balance? We’re here to show you how!

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!
