Think your toddler might be the next Michael Phelps or Serena Williams? Don’t let that (potential) talent go to waste. A web-application called CoachUp helps you find qualified coaches to provide private lessons for your little one as a way to boost confidence, skill, and athletic technique.
Little League practices and group tennis lessons can only get a budding athlete so far. To take your child’s skill to the next level, he or she needs professional help. Enter your city on the CoachUp site, then filter the results by sport, hourly price, and distance from your home. CoachUp will provide you with a list of coaches who live in your area, along with information about each coach’s qualification, background, and pricing. Some coaches may also post their typical training plans, to give you an idea what each coaching session might look like. When you find a coach that fits what you and your child are looking for, click “Book Now” and book as many sessions as you’d like. You can pay via credit card through the CoachUp platform, and contact the coach directly after you’ve checked out.
CoachUp isn’t just a useful platform for young people who want to improve their athletic prowess, it’s also a great tool for experienced coaches who’d like to make some extra money outside their 9 to 5 jobs. CoachUp provides client leads, free marketing, automatic payment processing, and $100,000 worth of liability insurance coverage for coaches who schedule private sessions through the site.
