Coaching Resources, or Lack Thereof

About Blogs, Coaching Resources


After reading Marc Meyer’s great sports and social media article, I was emailing back and forth with Marc about coaches’ online habits.  It made me really think about how coaches really don’t have many resources available out there for them.

Most sports-related websites are tailored towards news and fans responding to professional or college sports.  There are some instructional resources out there, but most of those revolve around the proper way to throw a baseball or how to tackle in football.  There are not all that many sites that really focus on coaching and how to help coaches.  There are sports-specific forums available, but even then, they are few and far between.

It can be summed up with what I wrote to Marc:

There really isn’t much out there for coaches by way of communities.  Most of the time when a site involves sports it’s usually aimed at the fans or news instead of being for coaches and/or players.

It’s really an unfortunate truth and one that I hope the future developments of OnePlaybook can remedy, for example with things like our sports software tutorials.

Twitter and Tutorial

I just posted a new football playbook tutorial on our playbook software tutorials blog.  It should be a quick and easy walkthrough for coaches who are new to OnePlaybook and don’t quite know about the play-drawing features it includes or for coaches who are wondering how OnePlaybook’s online playbook can help their team.

In addition, I’m going to start consistently updating Twitter with how things are going with OnePlaybook.  It’s another way to make sure that coaches know we’re always ready to connect with them and listen to them in any way to help their team out.  If you don’t know what Twitter is, it’s a micro-blogging tool that has rocketed to popularity because of it’s beatiful simplicity and ability for people to connect with one another.

OnePlaybook has expanded!  You may have noticed over the past few days, but the OnePlaybook playbook software has added more.  We now have added a sports software blogs section that includes a constantly updating blog maintained by OnePlaybook’s creator, Brian Manning, a weekly blog of sports software tutorials, a blog for OnePlaybook press releases and finally a blog that covers media coverage of OnePlaybook.

Right now, this is my blog and I will ensure it is updated with concerns from coaches, current updates, future feature requests, day to day changes, updates to OnePlaybook and useful links and articles that may help coaches.

This is an effort to ensure that OnePlaybook’s coaches are always up-to-date and using the most recent and relevant sports software and sports technologies to keep their teams ahead.  I want to make sure that coaches know that they always have access to everything what OnePlaybook has to offer and can always be above and beyond the competition with their sports software.
