Coaches Can Take PlaySportsTV to Practice, Game Day
Youth sports instructional leader is optimized for mobile viewing
Princeton, N.J. (Nov. 1, 2013) – PlaySportsTV has long put coaches into the game. It's only natural that coaches can now put PlaySportsTV into the game.
The youth sports instructional leader’s collection of instructional videos and training plans, which ensure that a coach (and a parent as well) can keep players engaged, learning their sport and having fun, have become available on all viewing devices. They are optimized for mobile viewing, including with Apple and Android products, easily displayed through a user’s mobile web browser. So as a coach does more than prepare all season with PlaySportsTV’s award-winning products on a PC or laptop, he can make them his assistant coach at practices and on game day.
Through thousands of instructional videos, featuring professional coaches and players, PlaySportsTV instruction delivers the knowledge for a coach to teach drills, skills and tips to young athletes in 18 youth sports, from baseball, soccer and lacrosse to cross country running, field hockey and wrestling.
The optimizing of PlaySportsTV’s video library comes at a perfect time for coaches, whose responsibility is rewarding, yet all-encompassing. At the grass roots level, young athletes rely on coaches to teach them how to hit a pitch, how to sink a jump shot, how to make a tackle. PSTV instruction has all the teachable moments, increasing from beginner to immediate to advanced levels, as evidenced by the Coaching Youth Baseball and Coaching Youth Soccer series of training plans.
"Over the last year, we've seen a dramatic shift in how users consume our instructional content," said Doug Donaldson, President of PlaySportsTV. "Since early in 2013, mobile usage has increased from 30 to 40 percent of our total viewership. Building out a responsive, intuitive site that works seamlessly across all mobile and portable devices allows us to more effectively meet the demand and deliver our award-winning content anywhere a coach desires."
In addition to the video courses, a subscription includes printable training notes and tips to reinforce how to teach a skill or set up a drill.
It’s easy to sign you or your team up for a PlaySportsTV subscription. Access is 24/7 and priced as low as $9.95 for a month of individual sport instruction. Even better, a month-long subscription for all PSTV sports coaching videos costs only $14.95, while team and league access are as low as $20 per month, based on team/league size and sport. Satisfaction comes with a 30-day no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.
While a coach’s goal may be to make his athletes better, he can do the same with himself through the redesigned PlaySportsTV website – at a practice and a game as well as at home.
PlaySportsTV was founded in 2006 and is now the leading subscription-based youth sports coaching and instructional website in the United States that offers coaches and parents access to over 3,000 short-form skill-specific videos and in-depth training plans in 18 popular youth sport categories.
