With 2020 now behind us, here’s looking forward to football opportunities in 2021 both on and off the field.
BAFCA have been working with Athlete Era to develop a mobile app for all BAFCA Registered Coaches. The app which would normally cost at least £41.49 will be FREE to all BAFA Registered Coaches from 2019 & 2020.
Whether you are a new or existing Flag Football Coach, a Contact Coach looking at ways to add Flag Football within your programme as part of your Return to Play, you want to start up a Flag Programme, or you just want to develop your knowledge, this app has something for you.
As well as a focus on Flag Football and coaching fundamentals, the App also offers drills linked to Mobility and Strength & Conditioning.
Throughout the year BAFCA will continue to work with partners to develop content for all phases of the game and athlete development.
App Features Include:
Pre-loaded drill, play & plan libraries to help you start coaching like a pro in no time .Easily find and review drills to help develop football fundamentals. All content comes complete with short video clips, text descriptions outlining how to run the drill, key coaching points, and ways the modify the drill based on players’ current ability.
Prepare for practice faster by designing, sharing, and managing your plans in-app. Build your own plan for practice in seconds by modifying plans from the library. Linking pre-made drills directly into your plans helps effectively communicate in more detail what’s happening during practice with everyone on your team, helping you spend more time coaching and less time explaining drills.
Create your own private drill video libraries to help players improve off the field. Record videos of yourself at home or of your players during practice using your smartphone to begin creating your own coaching video library. This will help you build out your own content that can easily be shared with coaches and players in your team year-after-year.
Keep your team organised with scheduling, messaging, and attendance tracking tools. Manage your schedule, keep track of who’s coming to practices or games, and share important information with everyone on your team by posting an announcement. All communication tools are fully integrated with the in-app coaching content libraries.
Now live on the App Store and Google Play
NB. BAFCA members should use the same email registered with BAFA to access Premium features.
