Setting up classes in Coacha ensures your other coaches know their commitments well in advance – no more confusion or cancellations, just all of your coaches in the right place at the right time.
To add a new class, head to ‘Classes & Registers’ in the main navigation and ‘Add Class or Event’.
Give the class a name and description. Then, set a date and give the event a start and finish time. For classes that take place at the same time each week, save yourself the hassle of setting them up over and over again by making it a ‘recurring’ class.
If your class runs fortnightly rather than weekly, it’s just as easy to set it to reoccur every 2 weeks, or even every 3 or 4. When you’ve finished setting up the class time and date, if you’ve already created the relevant venue, just select it from the dropdown menu. If you haven’t, type the name of a new one into the field provided and it’ll appear just like magic.
Then you’ll need to assign a coach to take your class and a venue where the class is taking place. Select a venue by clicking the drop down or create a venue by entering the name of the venue in the ‘Add a New Venue’ field.
Add an existing coach to the class by clicking the plus sign on their profile (click again to remove). If you want to assign a coach you’ve not yet created in your Coacha account head to People > Coaches through the main navigation and add a new coach. Or alternatively you can quick-add a coach there and then.
Then continue by clicking ‘Add members’.
Then it’s time to add in your members. To do this, either click the “+” signs on the member profiles at the bottom of the page or use the search function to find members by first/last name or by the team they are part of.
When your search returns its results, you can add players by clicking the plus sign on their profile, or by clicking the ‘+ Add All’ button. If you need to remove a member from the list, you can either ‘Remove All’, or delete on an individual basis by clicking the tick sign on the member profile.
When all of the relevant members have been added, just click ‘Finish’ and you’re done! You’ll be redirected back to the ‘Manage Classes’ page, where you will see a list of all of your upcoming classes, including the one you have just created.
