Here is a testimonial from Craig Scriven of USSSA. We have recently completed an agreement for all 4,000+ USSSA coaches to have unlimited access to the Member Drills Database. Check out the other testimonials from the likes of Anson Dorrance and Randy Waldrum below.
“One of my main goals as USSSA National Director is to find ways in which our association can help all USSSA coaches and players. With the Member Drills Database, WORLD CLASS COACHING has provided this opportunity; we can now supply every single coach in our leagues with quality and specific training sessions. By doing so we create a learning environment for all players and coaches that will help develop the individuals in our programs. The Member Drills Database offered by WORLD CLASS COACHING has significantly added greater value to USSSA and is a massive benefit for our coaches and players.” – Craig Scriven – USSSA National Director
And remember, we currently have a special offer when you subscribe to the Member Drills Database – WE GIVE YOU A $50 COUPON
Here is a short movie clip of a preview of the newly uploaded July issue. You can see more information on the Member Drills Database below.
The February, 2011 issue of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Digital Magazine has been uploaded to the Member Drills Database. It has some great material. Below is a short movie that gives a preview of the February issue.
And don’t forget, the Member Drills Database not only gets updated every month with a digital issue of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine, but it is the world’s largest online searchable database of soccer drills and exercises. And for a limited time, when you subscribe to the Member Drills Database, we will give you a $50 coupon.
Warning. This blog includes a blatant plug for a $50 coupon.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, the Member Drills Database is now fully operational. And we’ve been getting tons of great feedback. We’ve also had lots of questions so let me try my best to break it down.
The printed WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine is now a digital publication. The last printed issue was Jan/Feb 2011.
The digital version of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine is now published every month and is part of the Member Drills Database.
All subscribers of the printed magazine will be automatically changed over the digital magazine and the Member Drills Database.
The Member Drills Database is the world’s largest online searchable database of soccer drills and exercises. It contains the last five years of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine plus another 25 publications covering every topic you can think of including age group specific sessions.
The Member Drills Database is updated every month with a new WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine and we plan to add more publications on a regular basis. For instance, we have new age group publications that are almost ready and we are working on the 1998-2005 issues of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine. This plus other publications like the notes from our recent coaches tour to Italy and upcoming International Coaching Seminar will be added making it something like an additional 1,000 pages of content over the coming year.
The benefits of the Member Drills Database are:
You can access them 24/7
Print as many pages as you like
Updated with a new issue of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine every month
Easy and Quick keyword search for sessions and topics of your choice
Access them on your iPad or smart phone
Like I said, here is the plug for a $50 coupon.
We are launching a very special promotion for the Member Drills Database. We don’t plan on doing a regular promotion every two years like we did for the magazine. This is just a special introductory promotion. We feel that the Member Drills Database sells itself…we just need to ensure as many coaches as possible actually take a look at it.
The offer is pretty simple. Register for the new Member Drills Database and we will send you a $50 coupon to use on your next purchase. It’s that simple. This is good for new subscribers and current subscribers…we will just add another year to your current subscription.
It’s a few days late, but happy New Year to everyone. I hope it is successful on and off the field for you.
We here at WORLD CLASS COACHING have a lot going on to start the year.
1. First and foremost we are getting lots of customer questions about our new Member Drills Database. Basically, the Jan/Feb edition is the last issue of the printed magazine. The printed magazine will now become a digital magazine with an issue every month (instead of every two months). The new digital magazine will also now be part of the Member Drills Database that includes over 30 different publications and thousands of pages of drills and exercises.
We are getting great feedback about the Member Drills Database, we are excited about it and feel that it is a groundbreaking addition to our books and DVDs. Quite simply it is the world’s largest online searchable database of soccer drills and exercises.
2. We have some excellent new books and DVDs that are ready to be released in the upcoming weeks. From a coaching perspective, I always enjoy reading new material to get me energized and motivated for getting back to the outdoor game after spending the winter playing indoor soccer, and I think our new stuff will do the same for you.
3. We are preparing for our trip to the NSCAA Convention in Baltimore. We always enjoy the Convention and visiting with our customers. So please stop by the booth if you will be in Baltimore and say hi.
4. The start of the year always means more work finalizing details for our International Coaching Seminar. This years seminar has a Dutch Coaching Methods theme and features Jan Pruijn of Ajax International. We are again partnering with John Walker and hosting the seminar at the University of Nebraska on February 11-12. Oh, and don’t forget that if you register now…before January 11, you will save $20 with the early bird discount.
So it’s a pretty hectic time for us and it’s usually only after our coaching seminar has concluded that we can take a deep breath and get back to some kind of normality. Not that I’m complaining, our mission is to provide top quality coaching material to all levels of coaches, and provide that material in platforms that our customers want. As always, please feel free to let us know if there is anything we can do to improve what we do.
Well, it has taken plenty of time and effort, but we have finally got our new Member Drills Database up and running. I wrote about this in last Friday’s blog.
If you subscribe to the printed version of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine, you already have instant access to the Member Drills Database, so take a look and let us know what you think.
The Member Drills Database contains thousands of pages of drills and exercises and it also includes the entire last five years issues of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine. We also plan to add the previous seven years issues of the magazine over the coming years so pretty soon the Member Drills Database will include every single issue of the WORLD CLASS COACHING Magazine.
We are really excited about this new development. It is only at the beginning stages with lots more to come.
On another subject, preparations for our coaching seminar in February are coming along and it promises to be another great weekend. Don’t forget that if your register now and take advantage of the Early Bird Discount, you will save $20.
That’s the shameless plugs out of the way. We will be taking a few days off over the holidays, coming into the office occasionally. so the next blog will be in the New Year.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe holidays and a healthy and successful 2011.
We have some exciting new developments that we can share with you in the next week or so. Some of you have already connected the dots and seen our new database of online drills and exercises. It is actually the world’s largest online searchable database of drills and exercises and we are very excited about it. It is 99% completed and ready for release, however, there are so many small pieces that need putting together for the final 1%, it is impossible for me to give an actual release date. As I said, it will likely be sometime in the next week or so. Regardless, I will send out a special email newsletter with all the details once it’s ready.
In a nutshell, we have put together thousands of pages of soccer drills and exercises that you can access 24/7 from anywhere there is an internet connection. It uses the same digital eMag format as the Free Drills and Exercises. Only the Member Drills Database has tons more material and many more publications in what will be the world’s largest online searchable database of soccer drills and exercises.
As well as being able to print as many pages as you like, the main benefit is that it has a “live Bookmarks” function. Quite simply, when you click the Bookmark icon, it will bring up a list of sessions in that publication and when you click on them, it will take you directly to that session within the publication. There are other benefits as well like being able to access on your smartphone, a search function, page magnification and others.
There are currently over 30 publications ranging from the usual topics like, Attacking, Defending, Systems of Play, Condtioning as well as publications like Italian Sessions, Dutch Sessions, Italian Sessions, Pro Academy Sessions and various age group publications.
We plan to add material to the Member Drills Database every month as well as adding new publications throughout the year.
