Game Plan Starts Here with CoachMe


Spring ball is ready and so is CoachMe. After an extensive beta release, CoachMe is live with full functionality across devices and new features that will further highlight the inclusive platform that CoachMe has been known for.


After our initial beta release, we began on a journey that will allow cross platform synchronization to encourage mobile to web usage of the application and improve overall user experience. With the latest releases of web and mobile versions, CoachMe has been updated to allow playbooks to be shared among Web browsers, iOS and Android devices with further enhancements of the CoachMe Network.



We all know that making a straight line with your finger is not the easiest of things to do on a tablet. Well, CoachMe has made this task easier. With the introduction of the straight-line feature, you are able to toggle between drawing straight lines for cleaner presentation of the play and free-hand for those curve routes.




CoachMe is committed to providing the best user experience. We really appreciate your continuous support! For more information and FAQs please visitCoachMe.Uservoice.com. Also feel free to contact us via email at support@coachmeapps.com

New CoachMe and Much More!

Product Updates Posted about 5 years ago

Hello Coach,

First, we would like to extend our deepest appreciation to you for being a part of the CoachMe Family. Your active use of the platform and great feedback has led us to the experience that we are sharing today. With great reward comes great responsibility. It is a true honor to serve you and your staff with the necessary tools to provide a competitive edge on and off the field. It is an obligation that we do not take lightly. Our journey has led to this moment, in which we are proud to announce, CoachMe 1.0!

This latest build of the CoachMe platform has been a tireless effort to fully integrate staffing needs and player interaction with flexibility and broad reach that technology offers. As you will soon see, CoachMe 1.0 allows the cross platform of desktop and mobile to essentially become one. The cross synchronization of playbooks, sharing, and real-time collaboration has further solidified our motto, Game Plan Starts Here.

We have taken the necessary steps to make sure that this next rollout is adaptable to our CoachMe Family and your continuous success with the platform. Below we have listed the enhancements and things to know about the latest release:

Mobile Migration

Special thanks to all that have created a web account at www.CoachMeApps.com. Until this point, mobile and web has operated independently. The latest release will essentially migrate your local mobile playbooks with playbooks that have been created using the web version of CoachMe.

How does this work?

First, all of the CoachMe Family that has a web and mobile account, will have to log into there account at www.CoachMeApps.com and go to Settings (the gear tab), click Account Settings, next click Account Tab, then scroll to the bottom to the Merge Network Accounts section, click Merge and enter your user name and password from mobile.

Next, upon logging into the CoachMe Network on your mobile device, you will receive a prompt asking for the following:

  • If you have playbooks on your current device you will be prompted to either overwrite or delete device playbooks with network playbooks of yours.

  • If you have current playbooks on the web with the same name as the mobile device, you will be prompted to either upload the playbook from the device and overwrite the network copy or download the Network and overwrite the device copy of the playbook.


Design and Layout

Our intention is to develop a useful tool that serves its purpose while being pleasing to the eye. The new layout provides needed appeal that is important to our CoachMe Family. Enhancements to player and route options have broaden the communication line to further educate staff on ideas and details.

  • New player icon graphics
  • Chalk Telestration

Android!, We love you too!

Finally and for the first time, Android will have the same features as included in the iOS release. We are extremely excited for this effort and look forward to the CoachMe Family collaborating without the limitation of device.

Thank you and Extended Trial Period!

The CoachMe Family has done an excellent job with fully vetting the latest release and providing meaningful input to bring you the greatest release to date. To provide all of the CoachMe Family with an opportunity to experience the latest release in its full capacity we will be extending all CoachMe web trials until November 4th, 2013. 

We really appreciate your continuous support! For more information and FAQs please visit CoachMe.Uservoice.com. Also feel free to contact us via email at support@coachmeapps.com

CoachMe Camp Day 6

Announcements Posted over 5 years ago

Thursday Practice “How today's generation of players learn the game off the field”


Today’s walkthrough practice is all about bridging the generational technological gap between players and coaches.  A walkthrough practice is all about refreshing the memory and making sure there isn’t any questions running through you players minds before you take the field under the lights.  To this point you have already done the heavy lifting of learning how to manage your LockerRoom, PlayBooks, and Documents.  Now lets take a look at a few features that will really help you connect with the current generation of players.


CoachMe Message is a great resource for you to use when connecting with players.  This can be used on an individual or group basis but allows for a private conversation between you and players.  Today players are dependant on their smartphone and/or tablet/computer, They would much rather text you than talk to you in person or on the phone.  This is why CoachMe Message is so important for you to open another line of communication with them so they can let you know what they are struggling with.  Every coach asks at the end of a drill or practice if there are any questions, very rarely a player will speak up.  But if they can ask the question with no one else knowing that they are asking for help, the odds are greatly increased that they will reach out for help.  Now not only can you help the player with the specific responsibilities of the play, but you can work together in your PlayBooks to make sure you are on the same page.  


To view a how to video/description of “CoachMe Message, Direct message” click here:


We have also included that ability for you as coaches to send CoachMe message as a text message as well so you can address the whole team immediately if you need to.  This can be very helpful in making sure players come to practices or meetings prepared with what you have asked them to bring.  


To view a how to video/description of “CoachMe Message, text message” click here:


With CoachMe Message now in your toolbelt, you have all the new technology that current players can relate to.  Post comments in the LockerRoom, send messages to players, show animation of plays, have them draw plays on their tablet.  These are all things that were not available a short time ago, but you have to keep up.  Trust us when we say, we understand the demands of being a football coach....let CoachMe help you bridge that generation gap and get you back to doing what you love, coaching football!!!


Tomorrow is game day, make sure you get some good carbohydrates tonight.  As many of coaches have always said “the hay is in the barn”. Tomorrow we face the mobile app, and look at what it brings to the field.
