I wanted to share a milestone our playbook and coaching software reached on May 12th – we reached 400 teams! It was almost two weeks ago, so we’ve already moved beyond that, but a milestone nonetheless.
Another peice of news is the most recent banner on CoachBook’s homepage is for OnePlaybook. I’ve been trying to be more active on CoachBook because it really is a very valuable resource for coaches to meet other coaches. I met the CoachBook creator Bill Vasko through my twitter account, which has been a great resource for meeting new coaches and getting feedback about OnePlaybook.
Finally, I am working on a new version of OnePlaybook’s play editor that should make it much easier to use and allow coaches to draw plays even more quickly. It should be ready soon, and I will be posting more details and a demonstration when it is published and goes live.
OnePlaybook offers any and every team a 15-day free trial to try its online playbook software. Why is that?
There is one simple reason we offer a 15-day free trial: we are confident you will love OnePlaybook enough in those 15 days that you will happily use it as an integral part of your coaching repertoire.
Most programs, especially sport software programs require a one-time fee or a large upfront cost with smaller upkeep costs later. Why do they do that? To lock you in. Once you’ve paid the premium for a new service, it would be painful to switch to another, it would cost another premium!
OnePlaybook does no such thing because we stand behind our product and know that you will like it the moment you sign up.
I recently talked to a coach from the Czech Republic whose team uses OnePlaybook’s football playbook software for their American Football team.
I’m very happy with your product and very much looking forward to its progress. In our situation, we wouldn’t be able to do everything we do without OnePlaybook.
-Douglas Youngberg, Prague Panthers Football Coach
Also, to give more background, they’re 121-14 and are currently playing in the Semi-Finals of the European Championships. Go Panthers!
I’m always looking for more feedback from coaches and input – it’s how OnePlaybook gets better. I’d be more than happy to post your testimonial, too!
There are a lot of virtues to web-based software, especially when it comes to coaches. Coaches have to communicate a lot of information to players and OnePlaybook’s web-based coaching software can make it easier for them and that is a great savings in time and stress.
Here are six specific ways OnePlaybook can help your team:
- Save Time: No more making copies or burning DVDs.
- Save Money: Don’t go through hundreds of pieces of paper, or DVDs or worry about getting a DVD copier or fixing your XEROX machine.
- Go Green: Many people feel good about helping the environment and others appreciate it when you do it.
- Communicate Instantly: Get the latest gameplan and updates to your players immediately.
- Use Video: If you never had the ability to give video to your players, now you can use video with your team affordably.
- Stay Ahead: Most of your competitors have never heard of web-based software for coaches, use that leg up to your advantage!
There are even more advantages to using an online playbook and online coaching software, but these are a few that always jump out to me first. There are many more if you use OnePlaybook, whether it’s for football software, basketball playbooks or anything else!
I’ve been spending some time getting the word out about our coaching software in quite a few places. In an effort to try and connect with more coaches to see what they think, there are new profiles all over the place for both OnePlaybook and myself (as the creator of OnePlaybook), and you should look out for more.
Here’s a run-down of what’s out there right now:
- We’ve joined Ning community dedicated to coaches.
- There’s a Squidoo lens about OnePlaybook.
- A public facebook fan page for OnePlaybook.
I’ve been meeting some great people and coaches on twitter, and they’ve had some great ideas that I can’t wait to implement.
Look out for more improvements of OnePlaybook!
