An animated soccer tactic board for coaching, with lots of ready-made plays & drills and a scheduling calendar to create your training sessions in a matter of seconds. Works equally well offline and online, all screensizes and devices, touch or mouse.
Coach Aide is not a drawing app. I've tried to make it as easy and quick as possible to model player movement and passes. For example, after you create a movement path and pass the ball to a moving player, the app will take into how much the player moves while the ball is in mid-air. If you need to adjust the timing or the spot the player receives the ball at, go ahead and make as many changes to the path as you like - there's unlimited undo functionality.
There's also a small in-app tutorial (accessible from the about window that you can see when you tap on the logo). However, I've added so many more features that the tutorial doesn't cover it all. The main features that are not covered in the tutorial are looking up ready-made plays and adding them to the schedule. Find the search screen, hopefully the search itself is self-explanatory. For scheduling drills, you need to authenticate because the calendar is stored on the server.
Once you sign in, you can view and modify your plays & drills on multiple different devices. For other platforms (Windows, iOS,...), you can access the app & all the same features via https://soccer.coachaide.com. The way I typically work in my own coaching is that I like creating the drills on the tablet, then write any description & notes on my computer (press the little refresh button on the search page that shows your own drills in case you've created new ones on a different device). I create the training schedule either on the laptop or tablet, and finally, I use my mobile phone to review the drills with my assistant coaches at practice, sometimes even showing them to my players.
I'm adding new features all the time. Let me know if things are not working for you or you have an idea for a feature that could be useful for others. Happy coaching!
