PinchCoach.com Beta is In Full Swing!

About nine months ago, Chris Lusher and I were closing another successful season coaching the Town & Country Mustang Division Blue Jays in Austin, TX. With more than fifteen years of coaching experience between us, we had seen our fair share of challenges in dealing with parents, players, schedules and all the surprises that make baseball the greatest game ever played.

It was out of that conversation that the idea behind PinchCoach.com would come to fruition. First, we realized that 75% of children in the United States abandon youth sports entirely by the age of 13. While competing interests and the increasing rigors of schoolwork cannot be ignored, a significant contributor this troubling statistic is an absence of consistent, qualified and properly equipped volunteers.

"If we were able to change that statistic, how would we do it, and what would the results look like," we asked ourselves.

Our response to that question led to the foundation of FairPlay Solutions, Inc. and our flagship product, PinchCoach.com. PinchCoach.com is the first free, comprehensive solution for youth sports team and league management. Our objective is to advance the cause of youth sports by providing tools, articles and community resources that benefit youth sports volunteers, players and parents.

With that said, we would like to invite all youth sports coaches to participate in an open Beta test for PinchCoach.com. As an early participant, coaches will have the opportunity to directly contribute to the cause we are all so passionate about. Our Beta testers' participation and feedback will help us all to better serve our players, parents and community.

To participate in the Beta test, please visit www.pinchcoach.com/coachregistration.aspx. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the youth sports community through this endeavor!
