Wade Floyd, grew up with a passion for sports and dreams of playing at high levels, but he couldn't afford the expensive camps or elite training programmes out there. So he decided to change the system.
In 2010 he founded CoachTube with the ambition of giving every athlete in the world access to the instruction, knowledge, and the motivation they need to grow and progress as athletes and students.
He does this by providing access to online training from the world’s best coaches. These lessons are available on-demand, so that students can learn when and where it’s convenient for them.
CoachTube is all about providing great instructional online coaching to both aspiring kids, as well as more mature sports people looking to step up and improve their game and detailed knowledge of their sport or chosen sports.
With rugby union being one of the fastest growing sports in the USA and the launch in April 2016 of the first professional league. The sport is at an all time high in the USA with more and more kids of both sexes signing up to learn to play.
Therefore Wade and his team needed a top coach to represent Rugby on their roster of top coaches.
We are absolutely delighted they choose James for this inaugural and very prestigious role. Not only because of his International standing within the game with over 70 caps for England but because of his acknowledged and widely recognised skills as a highly effective coach.
The fact he has just written a highly critically acclaimed and very popular book on rugby training – An Introduction to becoming and Remaining RugyFit, also helped!!
CoachTube operates like an app store for coaching and instructional courses for all sports, featuring videos and detailed training from the best coaches across the web.
CoachTube provided a wide variety of sporting experts no matter what the subject is. There firm belief is that students and athletes from any location should be able to learn about any topic, from the best coaches anywhere in the world.
CoachTube allows coaches to build their brand by showcasing their skills and company through creating online courses and exposing them to a large audience that would be harder to reach using traditional methods.
A typical CoachTube course works along the following lines. Courses are made up of lessons (types: video, text, document, and downloadable) that are grouped together by "chapters" and Sport. Most courses on CoachTube have anywhere between 30-120 minutes of instructional content broken down into 2-10 minute video lessons. At minimum, courses need to be at least 10 minutes long and have no less than 70% video content.
Once the course is purchased, the student has access to all course materials indefinitely, just like an on-demand channel!
Our mission at CoachTube is to give every athlete, regardless of budget, location, or current abilities, access to the instructions, knowledge, and motivation they need to grow and progress as athletes and students.
