Complete Compliance™ Management System
From SafeSport training to background checks to safe communications, Great Coach is your one-stop-shop compliance management system for required organizational administration. We will help you save time and money, mitigate risk, and build safe, secure records of accountability and transparency.
Training & Tracking

Great Coach also verifies and displays every certification on public-facing profiles and automates alerts and reminders to facilitate refresher and recertification courses.
3 Steps to Safer Sports
It’s difficult to stay in compliance, much less keep up with best practices, in this ever-changing environment. Our team of legal and sports experts can conduct an audit of your organization, recommend procedures and provide a managed enterprise solution to not only comply with federal and state law but also recommend current best practices.
Great Coach provides several different levels of background screening, tracking, and re-screening notifications to meet every need. Our competitive rates are currently saving our customers 30% over other background screening services.
Whether texting or instant messaging through open social networks, non-transparent electronic communication is sternly discouraged by the Safe Sport Act of 2017. But this doesn’t mean coaches and other adults cannot communicate electronically, effectively, and safely with minors. With Great Coach, every message is shared with the player’s parents and stored in a non-editable/non-deletable manner in the administrator dashboard.
With Great Coach SafeMessaging, parents and admins are automatically copied on every message and those non-deletable, non-editable messages are permanently stored and searchable on the administrator’s dashboard. Great Coach’s SafeMessaging module is compliant with the electronic communications directives in the Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy, which is required by the Safe Sport Act of 2017.
Ready to ensure you have the right guardrails in place?
It is not safe to share game and practice schedules, photos, or other information about children on today’s social networks. Yet, we’ve all come to expect a high level of connectivity and why Great Coach developed SafeSite private social networks. Your posts, practice or game schedule, and imagery are only accessible to the parents, athletes, coaches, and staffers you invite.

In app Athletes & Parents Surveys
A positive youth sports experience requires a partnership among coaches, admins, parents, and athletes. The foundation of that partnership is built on communication and listening. Through our in-app athlete self-assessments and parent surveys, your organization can lead the conversation and receive the feedback you need, when you need it, in a safe and convenient manner.
The Safe Sport Act requires every organization to have a safe and secure feedback mechanism. Great Coach provides a clear Feedback function that pre-sorts it into six different categories. The Feedback provider can choose to be identifiable or anonymous. Should the feedback involve athlete abuse, Great Coach directs it straight to the U.S. Center for SafeSport.
Certification Training & Tracking
Whether a certification for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee How to Coach Kids online training module or the CDC HeadsUp Concussion training, CPR/First Aid, or virtually any other certificate-awarding program, Great Coach will provision, track, and manage the entire process for your organization.
Great Coach offers your coaches the tools to work more effectively and safely with your athletes. From customizable video analysis to availability tracking to athlete feedback, our tools help your coaches better educate athletes with the kind of app-based technology that they are already embracing.
