Cheltenham company gives away £3,000 worth of software to sports clubs

A selection of Gloucestershire-based not-for-profit sports clubs are set to receive free licenses of an industry-leading management software.

Coacha is a sports club management software which helps clubs step away from manual paperwork and digitalise their operation.

The founders of the company are sports coaches themselves and built the software to reduce admin time. Key features of the software include digital registers, automated finances and working by GDPR/child protection best practice.

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 they decided to try and 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 said:

"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."

Co-founder of Coacha, Jason Ayers said: "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."

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.
