Training and development benefits

It is important that coaches get the opportunity to progress and obtain relevant qualifications.

Coaches can gain a better understanding of athlete progress and participation

Sport management software can allow coaches to have a greater understanding of athletes. For example, Sport:80 allows coaches to easily see the progress of their athletes to better identify pathways for progression. Coaches can also have visibility into member participation and engagement. This allows coaches to have a clear view of the training they need to provide athletes, and they can further monitor athlete progression.

Coaches have their own login to the system and can easily access their personal information

A key benefit of sport management software is that it allows athletes and coaches to access all of their data from one place and utilize a suite of self-service functions. An online membership database, such as the Sport:80 Platform, provides each coach with their own login to the system, allowing them to access their own progress and personal information. This provides coaches with complete autonomy over their personal information and allows them to update it from any location.

Coaches can easily manage their credentials to remain compliant

It is important for coaches to be compliant with an NGB’s rules and regulations. Sports management software can help coaches to manage requirements such as qualifications and safeguarding training. Sport management software also allows coaches to effectively manage other credentials in the Platform, including their coach licence, DBS checks, first aid, and any other relevant qualifications. This provides both protection to athletes and reassurance to NGB’s that coaches are taking the necessary steps within their role.

Having access to all of these in a centralized location can significantly save time for coaches and allow an easy way for coaches to check whether they need to update their information or documents. This feature can also reassure coaches that they are up to date with the relevant documents and qualifications they need. Find out more about what Sport:80 can offer here.
