CoachMe is an easy-to-use PlayBook diagramming system that allows coaches and players to easily draw, animate, develop and share PlayBooks in real-time. CoachMe provides a secure web-portal for team management.
CoachMe was conceived on the football field during spring practice in 2011 where co-founder, Willy Joseph was coaching a new system. It was clear to him that he and the coaches needed a new way for their players to learn the new offense and defense quickly, so that they could get the most out of practices. Tired of the ugly play diagrams and no easy way of sharing PlayBooks with players off the field, the game plan begun. Brainstorming with co-founder, James Knorr (a coach on staff and his roommate), Willy begun designing CoachMe to be used on his iPad.
CoachMe was first made just for the Wilsonville High School football program. However, Willy realized that other programs could really benefit from this beautiful product. So, Willy ping co-founder, James Glover who had a particular set of skills for getting products to production ready. The three of them were hard at work and CoachMe launched for iPad and Android tablet devices right in time for the fall season. Soon after, CoachMe was developed for Basketball and Soccer. A year later, CoachMe had reached over 80,000 coaches and players making it the most popular football PlayBook diagramming app. CoachMe reached #1 on the Top iPad Paid App in Sports in the iTunes App Store and reached #1 on Amazon’s Bestseller Rank Appstore for Android in Sports.
