The site can be accessed at http://www.coachingmill.com where sports coaches can view, create and rate sports coaching resources such as training drills and sessions, coaching articles and year plans. The current sports include Rugby, Soccer, Hockey and Cricket.
The site is 100% free and aims to be community driven. Coaches from around the world can share their knowledge and experience. Users are able to draw training drills, write articles and plan sessions using all available drills. Training resources can be made private, where only the user can view it, or public so that everyone can use the resource. Users also have private folders where they can save resources to group them for specific purposes and to quickly find them again later.
CoachingMill is one of the first two projects to come out of the MIH Incubator that was started at the beginning of 2011. The website was built by Robbie Vos, one of the Stellenbosch graduates who studied through the MIH Media lab.
The site is growing daily and future endeavours such as team management and game analysis software is something that is still on the roster. Team management will enable coaches to manage their teams from a single website. Training sessions can be imported to use for specific practices, players can be notified and results of the games can be published online. Game analysis software entails applications for tablets that can be used to record stats during the game as well as video analysis software for post game analysis of recorded games. All the stats can be uploaded to the website to be reviewed or published.
Any coach, no matter what level of experience you have or team you manage, can benefit from this all-star coaching website.
