At all levels of sports, communication wins. It builds trust. It builds confidence. And it builds positive connections between coaches, athletes, and parents. PowerPlayer makes one-to-one and one-to-many communication from coaches to players — and to parents at the youth level — easy and efficient. From comment-based feedback to instructional video and images, practice schedules and plans, drill diagrams, and game reviews, PowerPlayer is the most effective way to communicate privately with individuals, or to selected groups within teams or organizations. All of your team’s communication in one place. That’s a win. Used by ice hockey, baseball, lacrosse, soccer, and softball teams and organizations at all levels in the United States, Canada, Sweden, Hungary, India, and Germany, PowerPlayer has been supercharging coach to player / team / parent communication since 2013.
KEEP THE COACHING STAFF, PLAYERS, AND PARENTS CONNECTED ALL SEASON.
All PowerPlayer content is private — no one beside the sender and receiver(s) can see a message — unless it is shared to a group by a coach, or is shared outside of PowerPlayer by any sender or recipient.
All data is saved in perpetuity. Once a team’s season ends, an athlete’s data can be viewed, but no more data can be added to their account for that season.
DELIVER INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP / TEAM DEVELOPMENTAL FEEDBACK.
Communicate one to one or one to many.
Provide individual or group feedback, motivation, information, or instruction via message, video, image, PDF, or link sharing to athletes, coaches, or parents. Communication between coaches and minors is automatically visible to parents, keeping them 100% in the loop.
Monitor individual and group responses to communication via likes, views, or indications of questions that can be addressed via additional PowerPlayer messaging or in person.
USE CALENDAR / PUSH NOTIFICATIONS / RSVP / DIRECTIONS AND MAPPING TO STREAMLINE TEAM EVENTS.
Provide scheduling and location / mapping information via calendar and push notifications.
Manage multiple teams in multiple sports from the same app.
USE INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP / TEAM POLLING TO STAY UP TO SPEED ON TEAM AND INDIVIDUAL PLAYER STATUS.
Poll athletes / coaches / parents on team-related topics such as mental and physical health, tournament options, or where to eat dinner on the road.
COACHES / PLAYERS / PARENTS CAN SHARE VIDEO, IMAGES, AND LINKS WITH OTHERS.
Share text, video, images, etc. with others if they choose to do so.
“Providing players with feedback helps them understand where they are in their development process, with the focus on opportunities for maximal improvement. It helps them understand the habits and characteristics that we as a club are looking to promote. That’s the base all personal and sporting development is built on.”

Conceived and developed by former athletes, coaches, and parents with experience in youth, high school, junior, NCAA, and professional ice hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer, football, and lacrosse, PowerPlayer is a feedback and communication platform built for coaches. We know from personal experience that most youth sports coaches are so busy actually coaching that the communication aspects of their jobs — the all-important feedback that tells athletes and parents what’s going on and helps build relationships — can be incredibly challenging. Because we also know that a lack of communication can lead to issues on and off the field, court, or ice for coaches, PowerPlayer is designed to make coaching and communicating a one-step process by streamlining team / athlete / parent management by eliminating the need to use multiple apps, email, or cumbersome individual / group text messaging.
