About Us

CoachSpan is a service offered by Alpha Youth Sports. Founded in 2011, Alpha Youth Sports provides services to youth organizations that use parent and other volunteer coaches, helping these organizations offer better programs to their community and achieve their stated mission. We pioneered the concept of a “Digital Coaching Platform”, which addresses the #1 challenge youth organizations face: Recruiting and Preparing Volunteer Coaches. We began by offering a skill curriculum and age based coaching materials for the top two youth sports in the U.S. (our alphaBASKETBALL and alphaSOCCER services), currently supporting youth organizations in more than 30 states.

We now offer a comprehensive software platform (CoachSpan) that simplifies and automates all of the core "coach processes", including coach recruiting, coach registration/paperwork, coach training, and more. Both alphaBASKETBALL and alphaSOCCER are available on the CoachSpan platform. We continue to expand the range of services we offer to volunteer driven youth organizations, and have become the leading provider of integrated software and content for youth coaching in the U.S.
