The Runner: TotalCoach
TotalCoach was founded in 2011. Its mission is to instill a lifelong love of sport in athletes by providing amateur sport coaches with the latest technology tools to make them more efficient and effective. DrillBuilder by TotalCoach is available for Soccer, Hockey and Basketball for iPad and iPhone. Using industry-leading technology, DrillBuilder allows coaches to create fully-animated, multi-player movement practice drills and game plays. Coaches create, share or download free drills and plays. The bird’s eye view shows athletes exactly what they need to do in order to perform each drill or play successfully. By providing a better coaching experience, TotalCoach promotes LTAD (Long-Term Athlete Development) and creates a life-long love of sport in young athletes. Staying active and participating in team sports plays a large part in a person’s development and a healthy lifestyle.
