I get “hit up” a lot to peddle products to coaches as a result of the success of this website. Many of you have been on this site for a while; you know that I don’t use it for those reasons. I’m just not a salesman! I get between 3-5 companies that contact me each week about “partnering for a great opportunity.”
That being said, I recently took a call from a gentleman after I was intrigued by an article I read about his product. I sat through a provocative 20-minute demo, I was HOOKED after about 4 minutes.
I’ve been in high school athletics for 16 years as a Football Coach, and 6 years as an Athletic Director. I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of products out there. Like you, I’ve tried many different systems to try to make my life easier.
I can easily say to you, with 100% authenticity, that MaxOne is THE best product I’ve seen for coaches and athletic directors. And the great thing is that you can try it for yourself with no obligation for 20 days.
Here are my 5 C’s about MaxOne, and why you should check it out.
Perhaps my favorite thing about MaxOne is at the heart of the system; The ability to build customized workouts delivered right to athletes phones. An athlete sees his workout, records his work, and competes in real time with their teammates!!! It’s genius.
Kids are engaged through technology to the tune of 6 or more hours per day. MaxOne makes it easy for you to capitalize on this reality. You simply build your workouts into the platform and MaxOne delivers them to your athletes’ smart phones. Athletes view and execute the day’s activities for the day as instructed, and record their performance as they go.
I love that you literally click and point to build a workout. You can build different workouts for different position groups or even an individual within seconds. We all have different philosophies on our kids workouts, but personally I love the idea of my running backs doing one workout, and my linemen doing another.
It takes, literally, seconds to build customizable workouts and live leader boards. Everything is recorded at all times. Plus, players can pull up EVERY single workout they’ve completed while active in your program… Imagine that: an athlete being able to see their history from freshman to senior year, what a lesson in commitment and results!

Personally, I love the Coaches Corner section. It’s a fantastic communications tool where coaches can share files (like playbooks and video), upload practice plans, and much more.
When I would see a great slide at a clinic, I used to take a pic and share it with my coaches via text or email. This method
was messy and confusing, sometimes leading to dozens of different text conversations. With MaxOne, simply upload that slide (or article or video or link) right to the Coaches Corner.”
Great coaches are great communicators.
While the digital age has simplified communication in many ways, today’s coaches face new hurdles in connecting with their athletes and others throughout their program.
MaxOne simplifies the task of communication by serving as a central hub for your entire program. MaxOne delivers messages through both email and text message – so you can communicate to athletes, parents, and coaches through their usual channels.
This type of functionality is invaluable during the season, but consider the game-changing benefit it provides during the summer months. When face-to-face interaction is at a premium, MaxOne allows you to communicate with your players individually or in groups. With streamlined messaging functionality, you can engage, motivate, and drive improvement in your athletes like never before.

CALENDAR AND EVENTS SECTION
There are many calendar apps using phone technology out there now for your programs. We used to use a free app where I coach, but MaxOne has a great calendaring feature that does all the same things and much more for your program!
Organizing and distributing summer schedules can be a monumental task for coaches. MaxOne allows you to easily create your schedule and share it across your entire program, with every person involved. From the principal to the chain gang volunteer!

Parents can sign their kids up for camps and pay registration fees, kids can order home game meals, and so much more. When athletes purchase spirit packs, the app instantly organizes all orders for you. For a small processing fee, all of your program’s transactions are seamlessly handled online – saving you a major headache.
We know firsthand that schools do not have an unlimited budget. In fact, many school programs can’t afford the latest and greatest tools. Programs like this are usually pretty expensive. In fact, the longer the presentation lasted, the more I saw the cash register dinging! You know how it is, you see this great tool, and get all jacked up to get it, and then see the price.
MaxOne is ONLY $300 for an entire year!
You cannot beat a $300 investment to help you do ALL of the things that MaxOne does.
It will save you hundreds of hours of communication and organization – and I mean that. I’ve been there. Never again will you have to handout paper workouts, fill out check deposit slips, count and recount how many t-shirts you need for camp! Was that 67 mediums, or 76 larges?! Shoot, gotta count these forms again!
As a coach, you can:
- Deliver texts and emails to players and parents from one place
- Create live schedules that sync to everyone’s personal calendars
- Deliver daily workouts with videos and tools to track
