High school and middle school student athletes deserve an experience that helps them grow both athletically and personally. For this to happen, coaches must be trained on more than just mandated courses. Coaches also need training on topics that are relevant to today’s school athletic environment. These include a variety of subjects such as hazing, social media use, mental health, coach burnout and others.

Coaches want to grow and improve. Coaches want the training they receive to focus on skills and knowledge they can apply to the athletes they coach. The training should be practical, efficient, relevant, and easily accessible. The training should do more than just meet regulatory standards. It should address the issues coaches face today and be available to the coach on their schedule. Historically, coach's training has had components that needed to be sourced from a variety of providers. Our coursework is different. It is a single source platform that is updated with new content annually. It provides the kind of useful information that coaches appreciate.

Athletic administrators are responsible for ensuring every coach and every volunteer has done their required training. In the past, this has been a time consuming and cumbersome process that is a challenge to complete. Our platform has changed this. One certificate, a common expiration date, all the required training, and ability to link to any registration software an athletic department may use. We give the administrator the ability to check on the status of ALL of their coaches with the press of a button. Imagine no longer having to track all the certifications with all the different dates on top of scheduling professional development opportunities.
Everything is included in a Coaches’ Tool Chest subscription!

Coaches often spend more time face to face with their student athletes than any other adult, including their teachers and parents. Coaches can make a huge positive impact. For this to happen, Coaches need to have the tools and knowledge that allow them to create the environment and teach the lessons their athletes need. If you have a need for quality training, we can help. We can custom design a platform which will meet your unique requirements.

Coaches Tool Chest has streamlined the process for coaches to get certifications in a timely and cost-effective manner. From an administrative side, it has greatly improved our ability to have a “one-stop” shop to track certifications and ensure coaches’ compliance.
