The Digital Assistant is the new product from The Coaching Manual that will make life easier for coaches and players alike. Here are some frequently asked questions about the Digital Assistant to help you decide if it's right for you and your team.

What is the Digital Assistant?

The Digital Assistant is a personalised technology package that brings your players closer in line with your coaching vision, saving time and improving the effectiveness of the training sessions you deliver on a weekly basis.

How does it work?

Every Sunday, you will receive an email illustrating suggested training sessions for the week ahead, enabling you to share these practices with your players (and other coaches) ahead of time so that they understand what is expected of them that week. Your players will also be assigned with 'TopTekkers' challenges to practise at home to make sure they possess the technical competences required for that week's session(s).

Who will it benefit?

The Digital Assistant will make any coaching role easier, but it's designed for time-starved coaches who not only want to make the most of the time they have on the pitch with their players, but also encourage their players to put in essential work off the field in their own time.

What do you get as part of the package?

Included in the package you get:

  • A premium coaching License (worth £60/$84 per year) for an assistant coach.
  • Access for up to 15 players to The Coaching Manual (worth £20/$28 per player/year)
  • Access for up to 15 players to TopTekkers (worth £34.99/$34.99 per player/year)
  • Every Sunday receive an email for the week ahead with age appropriate sessions for you to choose from, which you can deliver with your players. All with broadcast quality video.
  • On Sunday also receive advice on TopTekkers tasks that you can set for your players, which relate to the session of the week.
  • Ongoing training and support webinars.
  • Learning sheets and match reflection sheets, to keep players engaged whether you are on the field or not.

What are people saying about the Digital Assistant?

Phil Smith, grassroots coach, Manchester: "It's brilliant for me and the team. I’ve been a Coaching Manual user for a while and have used loads of the sessions with my players since they were 6 years old, but I’d never thought to actually get them to watch the session beforehand. There’s so much good information about the game in those sessions. So, I set my players a task to watch a video each week and then write a little report about it, it definitely kept their learning going. The improvement was instant! I’m not joking, the players turned up for the first session after watching the video and they were better prepared to train than ever."
