Coachmate is an app created to support volunteer coaches to help kids stay in sport and grow their love of the game.
Volunteer coaches are the unsung hero of sport, influencing kids’ lives in immearsurable ways. However nearly all volunteer coaches are time-poor parents coming straight from work to training – and it can be really tough to find age and stage appropriate activities to keep kids engaged.
Research shows that kids who are trained by an unskilled coach are five times more likely to quit the sport the following year, which can have a significant impact on the mental and physical wellbeing of those kids.
So we’ve made it our purpose to do all we can to keep kids in sport by supporting their coaches.
We’ve partnered with Golf New Zealand, Basketball New Zealand, and now New Zealand Football to deliver quality, user-friendly training tools for all coaches across the country. We do this by transforming a sporting body’s analogue coaching resources into videos and personalised training programs in an app, making the job of coaching easier and more rewarding for all.
AND THE BEST PART IS IT’S FREE FOR ALL VOLUNTEER COACHES TO USE.
