What’s New? March Product Release Notes 2021

By | Baseball, Basketball, Coaches Resources, Football, Hockey, Lacrosse, Other, Soccer, Track, Volleyball, Wrestling

MaxOne on March 26, 2021

The MaxOne team has been busy in the early parts of 2021. We have three exciting new features launched into MaxOne’s virtual coaching platform and even more exciting updates coming soon. Learn more about the new features; Athlete Feedback, Goal Setting, and Live Training Integrations with Zoom and Uplift, below!

New Releases

Athlete Feedback Questionnaire

We know how important it is to receive results from athlete participation in workouts. More than just results, it is important to know how your athletes are doing on a psychological level. This is why we have introduced the ability to ask your athletes questions within MaxOne workouts. Whether you want to know their daily eating habits or the difficulty of the exercises for each athlete, you now have the ability to receive that feedback in real-time through MaxOne’s Athlete Questionnaire Feature. 

It has been set up where you have the option to create your own questions to make it more personal for your athletes. This feature is found under Training Libraries within the Questions library. By creating your own question in this library, you will have the opportunity to add these questions to new or existing workouts by clicking “Add a question block” while building a workout.

 At any time you will be able to pull a report to see how your athletes have answered the questions that were assigned to their workouts found inside the questions library. This will give you a line of sight into how your athletes are doing on a more personal level. Learn more about this process on MaxOne’s Help and Support page, here.

Goal Setting

Improving athlete performance is of the utmost importance. For there to be improvement, there needs to be accountability. You already know about MaxOne leaderboards which can be used to encourage competition within the team. However, competition alone does not set clear expectations for the athletes. That is why we have created the option to set goals for each athlete based on the specific drills you’re assigning them through the MaxOne app. 

This feature allows you to set goals for each of your athletes individually and gives you a line of sight into the progress that your athletes are making for each activity as they work toward their own goals. 

To set goals for your athletes, simply select an activity under the Training Libraries and click the ‘target’ icon to set goals for that activity. This is a great tool to give athletes something to work towards and for coaches to measure their progress. Results for each athlete can be found under the Athletes tab when you click on the individual athlete. For a more detailed description of this process, find a step-by-step guide in MaxOne’s help and support page by clicking here.

Live Training Integrated with MaxOne

Live Training with Zoom

Live Training has arrived! You saw the update last month that live training was coming, well here it is! You are now able to set and schedule Zoom training events right from the MaxOne web app. The MaxOne zoom integration can be found under a new tab on the left-hand navigation bar labeled “Live Training”. The zoom integration comes at no additional cost for MaxOne users as long as you have a preexisting Zoom account. Just navigate to the “Live Training” tab and select “Get Started”. Follow the prompts to link your MaxOne and Zoom accounts with ease.

Once your Zoom account is linked, you can assign live zoom sessions from the MaxOne calendar, or can send over live virtual training via the assignment calendar. Athletes can open and enter Zoom meetings directly from the MaxOne calendar inside their mobile devices. 

Live Training with Uplift

While we are excited about being able to use Zoom straight from the app, we are also eager to bring our customers the option of using Uplift’s robust virtual coaching platform. Uplift is an incredible tool that is perfect for one-on-one or small group coaching. With the ability to live replay and annotate on the screen for the athletes to see, it provides an incredible coaching experience for both the athlete and the coach. Although Zoom is great, it wasn’t built for coaching. The Uplift live training option is made for coaches to use during virtual training. If interested in adding Uplift to your MaxOne account, you can click “I’m Interested” found under the Live Training drop down in the web app to talk with a MaxOne representative. Learn more about Uplift, here.

Ready to try out some of these new features? Login now.

Otherwise, wait to hear from us next month with more improvements to the MaxOne platform! In the meantime, with all the excitement of MaxOne’s new features, don’t hesitate to schedule a call with a MaxOne Support Representative if you have any questions on implementing these features into your MaxOne account: Schedule a call with a MaxOne Support Representative

How to Keep Families Cheering for Your Youth Sports Club or League

By | Baseball, Basketball, Coaches Resources, Football, Hockey, Lacrosse, Other, Soccer, Track, Volleyball, Wrestling

MaxOne on March 23, 2021

9 Simple Steps to Help Keep Families Cheering for Your Youth Sports Club

Are you running a competitive program? You used to be the only person in town, now parents have a variety of choices. How do you as a club admin recruit new players? Here are the 9 ways to continue to grow your organization in a competitive landscape.

1. New athlete orientation

Every new athlete should be set up for success from the start. Your orientation process should teach new athletes not only about the team, but also the organizational culture and how they can contribute and thrive. Don’t shortcut this important first step, as the training and support you provide from day one can set the tone for the rest of their time.

2. Communication and feedback

Keeping open lines of communication is integral for athlete retention. Your athletes should feel they can come to you with ideas, questions, and concerns, and they expect you to be honest and open with them about improvements they need to make in their performance. Make sure you connect with each athlete regularly. See how MaxOne can help.

3. Training and development

You as the director and your coaching staff must make it a priority to invest in your athlete’s development and seek every opportunity for them to grow and improve. For cutting-edge organizations, this means providing a well-thought-out curriculum so youth athletes are advancing their knowledge and level of play. In many cases, this is a combination of in-person practice and virtual assignments, where a coach can be proactively involved in the athlete’s day-to-day life. Providing a road map for development is something many organizations strive for, but few actually master. See how MaxOne can help.

4. Create an Inviting Culture

It’s inevitable that athletes and their families will form relationships and become friends as practices, games, and events start to take place. Top organizers work hard to create a second to none culture that families enjoy being a part of. If this is something you ignore, you’ll see that families who leave the organization will bring others with them on the way out. See how MaxOne can help.

5. Annual performance reviews

Even if you’ve met with athletes throughout the year to check on their progress, never skip a regular big-picture conversation. This is when you’ll discuss short and long-term goals and talk about their future inside of the team and organization. You should never make promises you can’t keep, but talking through potential advancement scenarios together is a great way to build confidence and motivation for your athletes.

6. Recognition and rewards systems

Every athlete wants to feel appreciated for the work they do and how they contribute to the team. Make it a habit to thank your athletes, parents, and staff when they go the extra mile, whether it’s with a sincere email, a gift card, or an extra day off. When you show your appreciation to athletes, explain how their hard work helps the organization. Some organizations even set up rewards systems using leaderboards that incentivize hard work and contribution. See how MaxOne can help.

7. Fostering teamwork

When your athletes work together, make sure everyone, not just your team’s stars, has a chance to contribute. Further, foster a culture of collaboration by accommodating individuals’ playing styles and giving them the latitude to make smart decisions.

8. Acknowledge milestones large and small

Whether the team just won a big game or beat a rival team, seize the chance to celebrate together with a shared meal or group activity. See how MaxOne can help.

9. Hire good coaches, and coach consistently

Your coaching staff is the backbone of your organization. Put in the hard work to bring in top talent, and find ways to coach your coaches, and create consistency from the top down. The last thing you want when an athlete moves up year after year is inconsistent coaching and training, leaving them confused and considering other options. Similar to developing an athlete, it is a great idea to share videos and clinics coaches can attend in person or virtually. Many leading organizations have developed their standardized coaching curriculum that is taught every year. See how MaxOne can help.

It’s smart to revisit your organization’s retention strategy at least once a year. That includes staying current on the best practices in developing an attractive organization-wide culture and strong athlete, parent, and coach relations. That’s the way to keep talented athletes happy when it comes to playing for, and training with your program.

MaxOne Forms Partnership With ACES Nation To Enhance Virtual Training Curriculum

By | Baseball, Basketball, Coaches Resources, Football, Hockey, Lacrosse, Other, Soccer, Track, Volleyball, Wrestling

MaxOne on March 23, 2021

Youth sports organizations and athletic departments will be using ACES Nation’s All-In-One Platform for athlete development and performance improvement.

MaxOne is excited to be the software that powers ACES Nation to the next level.” 

“Jason’s incredible knowledge and leadership, along with his extremely talented team at MaxOne, has given ACES Nation the ability to turn a long-time vision into a reality”, said ACES Nation founder, Tim Livingston. ” Now instead of providing multiple individual programs, MaxOne has given us the ability to deliver a complete integrated solution to sports organizations on a single platform. Thanks to MaxOne, ACES Nation now offers one of the most comprehensive sports management software solutions in the world.”

3 Reasons Zoom is NOT sufficient for Virtual Sports Coaching in 2021

By | Baseball, Basketball, Coaches Resources, Football, Hockey, Lacrosse, Other, Soccer, Track, Volleyball, Wrestling

MaxOne on November 23, 2020

How Zoom is Being Used in Virtual Coaching

There is no question that COVID-19 has accelerated certain trends in youth sports. For years early adopters have been utilizing innovative Virtual Coaching tools and platforms to supplement in-person practice and play.  Now, more so than ever before accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Virtual Coaching is quickly becoming the ‘new normal’ as sports organizations transition to hybrid and remote training models for the unforeseen future. 

The spike in the adoption of virtual coaching tools includes the adoption of digital platforms previously only  used for business applications (e.g. Zoom, Google Hangout), social media, and other tools for sharing documents. Here’s some data from a recent survey of youth sports programs adopting new technologies during 2020.

  • 60% of organizations began using Zoom or other web-based platforms
  • 30% using social media such as Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook
  • 10% sending training and workouts via email

Zoom. A Great Resource for One to Many Broadcast Communications

For some, Zoom serves as a great resource for one-to-many group instruction, allowing coaches to broadcast live and have collaborative team meetings. . For programs with only this one-to-many broadcast communication model  in mind, a tool like Zoom is sufficient. For those youth sports programs seeking to achieve a more dynamic live coaching experience, Zoom is not a viable option. Zoom just wasn’t built to be a live remote digital training experience built to help coaches coach athletes more effectively.

While Zoom has served sports programs as a temporary workaround, it will ultimately not provide the comprehensive solutions required for effective virtual coaching for several reasons.

 

1. Zoom is Not Built for ‘Live’ and Engaging Coach to Athlete Coaching

One of the most reported issues sports organizers and coaches face with business-focused meeting tools like Zoom is that they don’t facilitate team-building opportunities or customizable training capabilities like:

  • Live video replay, movement analytics, and annotation
  • Individualized workout building and assigning tools
  • Player feedback, performance logs, and leaderboards
  • Cohort training based on age or competitive level
  • Archive digital assets such as skills and drill videos
  • On-demand training from anywhere 

The lack of sport-specific offerings has been shown to cause significant problems like low athlete engagement, lack of accountability, and no coaching consistency.

2. Zoom is Not Sufficient as a Standalone Communication Platform

Many online meeting tools also lack any communication capabilities outside of when the meeting is currently in session. Effective, multi-channel (i.e. text, chat, and email) messaging is a key component of successful virtual coaching. Also, many coaches have reported experiencing significant emotional and physical drain after using programs like Zoom; this is commonly called “Zoom fatigue.” While it can offer simple real-time 2-way communication, Zoom’s potentially negative side-effects can be mitigated by combining dynamic live coaching sessions with a cadence of programming delivered on a schedule pre and post-meeting to deliver skills & drill, technique, and educational content on a scheduled calendar, with push notification reminders on the player’s phone.

  • Fight fatigue by combining Zoom with customizable training programs that allow players to proceed at their own pace – taking breaks as necessary to retain their focus and concentration.

 

3. Zoom Does Not Support Sustainable Program Growth

Zoom does not provide the framework nor workflows to help a youth sports program generate new and incremental revenues.

The alternatives to online meeting tools and social media applications are modern Virtual Coaching Platforms (VCPs) designed specifically to facilitate remote communication, athlete training, and team building. 

Comprehensive and customizable VCPs like MaxOne provide organizers the ability to assure players and parents that their program can offer safe, compliant, highly effective, and engaging virtual experiences, and help:

  • Create additional revenue streams to support the long-term financial health of the organization.
  • Mitigate the risk of future organization impacts due to COVID recurrence.
  • Differentiate program offerings with the most powerful virtual training experience available

Interested in learning more about Virtual Coaching Platforms?

Regardless of how COVID-19 continues to impact youth sports, new research clearly shows that forward-thinking organizers are focused on becoming more flexible, ensuring operational continuity, and providing the most value possible to players and parents.

MaxOne on February 3, 2021

MaxOne has rolled out a few new changes within the platform that we are eager to announce.

New Releases

Live Training with Zoom and Uplift 

Live training is officially scheduled to launch inside the MaxOne platform in February. Live training events, which users will be able to conduct via an integration with Zoom, can be created, scheduled, and configured using the event or assignment calendar inside the MaxOne platform.

Live training events that coaches have created will show up for athletes in the workouts tab, where a countdown timer will announce the start of the live event. This will be  replaced by a launch button 15 minutes prior to the start of the class, which will take the athletes to the Zoom app where they will join the scheduled live session. 

Expect to see this integration go into effect within the next month. Look for an additional integration regarding Live Training in the MaxOne platform when we launch the MaxOne integration with Uplift later in the month of February as well. Learn more about Uplift, here

Enhanced Director Features

Over the next few months, we’re adding additional features that will help to improve the experience for director and admin level users.

One of those features includes the ability to share content (activities, drill, workouts, etc.) across multiple teams within the same organization, saving time and allowing the director to reach more athletes.

In addition, new features like messaging, calendars, and permissions are also in process of being built. Keep an eye on these types of improvements in coming months.

CoachUp Turning 15,000+ Private Coaches Virtual Through Partnership with MaxOne

By | Baseball, Basketball, Coaches Resources, Football, Hockey, Lacrosse, Other, Soccer, Track, Volleyball, Wrestling

MaxOne on August, 31 2020

CoachUp and MaxOne

CoachUp, a web-based service that connects athletes with private coaches, has partnered with Virtual Coaching Platform (‘VCP’) provider MaxOne to launch the CoachUp 24-7 app. The new app features a white-labeled integration with MaxOne’s VCP, allowing CoachUp to provide significantly expanded virtual coaching capabilities and a streamlined business model to their user base of over 15,000 private coaches nationwide. Since its soft launch in July, the 5-star rated app is already being used by hundreds of coaches and significant growth is expected as fall sports programs begin.  

With support from prominent sports figures like Stephen Curry and industry giants like SportsEngine, TeamSnap, and UnderArmour, CoachUp has become the preferred service for athletes to find private coaches based on their location and criteria like price, training type, reviews, and sport category, including basketball, baseball, lacrosse, and soccer. 

By working with MaxOne, CoachUp is seeking to counteract disruptions to in-person training by offering significantly improved technology and industry-leading virtual training tools for coaches. “We’re thrilled to be working with a leading company like CoachUp that is changing the way coaching is done,” said MaxOne CEO Jason Mejuer. 

Through the CoachUp 24/7 app, coaches can set their pricing, invite athletes, build customized training programs, and provide feedback while monitoring progress and staying connected from anywhere. Mejeur described the enhanced subscription capabilities in the CoachUp 24/7 app as a “business-in-a-box solution for private coaches that gives them more control over the growth and management of their businesses.”

CoachUp COO, Alex Stone commented, “it would be far too costly and time-consuming for our coaches to build their own apps. Partnering with MaxOne gives us another offering for our coaching and training partners by equipping them with cutting edge tools to build their businesses and strengthen relationships with clients.”

This recent high-profile collaboration is the latest of 11 such partnerships so far in 2020 – a record year for MaxOne. When questioned on the increasing pace of integrations and partnerships, Mejeur said, “the feedback we’re getting is that companies choose us over competitors or building their own apps because of our leading technology and white labeling capabilities.”

Mejeur further emphasized that these relationships are successful because each company remains focused on its core competencies and key brand identity. “Technology should empower and enable these brands, not be a risky financial endeavor that distracts from the company’s mission and values.”

About CoachUp

CoachUp is a service that connects athletes with private coaches. We believe that private coaching is the secret to reaching the next level in sports + life.

With thousands of coaches across the country, and hundreds of training sessions happening every day, we are the nation’s leading private coaching company. We are also a team of athletes and coaches, including our founders, Jordan Fliegel (basketball) and Arian Radmand (sailing). And we are dedicated to our mission: help kids change the trajectory of their lives through sports.

About MaxOne

MaxOne’s Virtual Coaching Platform (‘VCP’) empowers organizations, trainers, coaches, and athletes with a digital solution to train, connect, and grow together, anywhere. With an increasing list of demands, directors and coaches need to be smarter in the development of their training programs and in the use of their time and resources.
