What People are Saying about CoachDeck
"I found the CoachDeck to be an invaluable tool and our best investment for our Soccer Club. Not only did it assist in the transition of player development across all age groups in our Organization, but it also allowed new coaches and parents to develop an understanding of the game's fundamentals in a well laid out and efficient manner."
A. Lauro, USSF Certified Coach St Jane's CYO
"Your products are great! I am the manager for my team in the Hammond Optimist Youth Sports organization in Hammond, IN. I have personally turned several coaches in both softball & baseball, in all levels from t-ball to majors, to your product. It is a great help to set up practice and have my other coaches follow a cadence for what I want to accomplish with the team when I can't be to practice. Keep up the great work, and THANK YOU, for an outstanding product."
R. Alvarado Hammond, Optimist Youth Sports
"The CoachDeck program is one of the most effective teaching tools to help Coaches become better at teaching and practice management. In our first year of using them, we saw practices at every level from Tee-Ball to Juniors Baseball become more effective, creative and enjoyable for the players. In 2008 VSLL accomplished a clean sweep of all Seven District Championships, with an additional four State Sectional Titles and Two Florida State Championships in baseball and softball. I would strongly recommend the CoachDeck program to help your league’s Coaches become more effective at practice management."
J. Piersall, President, Viera Suntree Little League
"I have a deep background in football and basketball and know the importance of well-run crisp practices. Baseball is my son’s passion and now it is mine so I manage a Little League team. Coach Deck helped me organize my practices with the same effectiveness as I would basketball or football. I like to do a lot of station-to-station work and I will simply give the card of a drill I want done to one of my assistants to run that station for me. A great tool for the volunteer coach or manager."
J. Tomes, President, Del Mar Little League
"I absolutely LOVE them!! I am just so excited about these cards!! I was always willing to help out with my youngest son's (now a high school sophomore) team, but found myself being the coach - not something I felt qualified for. I did get my coaching licenses, but that really didn't give me much more comfort. Something like this would have been perfect - it would be easy to get a drill figured out and - as I said - just as easy to spread out the cards and have a kid pick one out. They will easily fit into the coaches bags we give them - or however else they want to carry them around."
C. Johnston-President, Oregon (Wisconsin) Soccer Association
"The decks were a huge hit! We had a coaches meeting and asked how many wanted one. Every hand went up! "
L. Oetzel, Treasurer, Silvis Youth Baseball
"The coaches love the decks! Sometimes you just didn't have time to plan the practice you wanted and you can literally put a skills practice together in two minutes. Aside from putting a practice together in a hurry if you need to, we find it to be a great way to have something literally in your pocket in case what you want to work just isn't working. We've all had practices laid out and the wrong number of kids show up (too few, too many) or the drill just isn't giving you the result you need. Instead of beating the same old dead horse, you reach into your pocket and have something new, something exciting, something that will work right there in your hand. Personally, (and I'm a Varsity HS Coach), I plan my practices out in detail well ahead of time. But I ALWAYS bring the deck with me just in case."
M. Harrington, Director of Coaching, North Scott Soccer Association
"We loved the CoachDecks (great idea), be sure to let us know when you have a Softball deck available."
L. Thomas, President, Foresthill Little League
"(CoachDeck) offers our coaches the confidence they need to conduct quality training sessions. Also, our DOC's for the select and academy programs are clamoring for your product! This is the best soccer training product for coaches that I've ever seen."
C. Garner - President, Tucker Youth Soccer Association
"The cards arrived yesterday and I picked them up from our front desk this morning. I'm impressed and look forward to using them soon. One of the ladies in the office saw them and rushed to your site to order a set for her sons as a stocking filler for Christmas, so you'll probably have a few enquiries from this part of the world in the near future."
N. Clement, New Zealand
"I reviewed the cards during my lunch break to prepare for practice tonight. I am an assistant coach on my son's team. The manager generally asks me to run 1 or 2 drills with the kids. I selected drills for infield, outfield, and baserunning, so I am ready to go! One of my league’s coaches, who is also a middle-school teacher, told me, "That deck you gave me is great, I am already using the cards at my practices!"
B. Davis, President, Hollis Baseball and Softball, Hollis, ME
"The coaches are very happy and grateful for the decks. I have received nothing but positive feedback on them"
K. Coker, President, Port Townsend Little League
"We used the cards as part of the coaches' bags and the coaches love them! We are very pleased with our purchase."
G. Nelson, Clinton Youth Soccer
