What is Coach Match?

You probably didn’t start your coaching business because of your love of tracking down and invoicing athletes. We started Coach Match so you don’t have to worry about any of that.

With Coach Match, athletes looking for a coach submit detailed questionnaires about their sport history and goals which are reviewed by our team. Then, the Coach Match team hand-selects TrainingPeaks Level 2 Accredited coaches which would be a good fit and connects them. You take it from there.

If the match seems like a good fit, then you can start doing what you do best: coaching. We’ll take care of the standardized billing based on the athlete’s preferred level of service, and you’ll receive monthly payments without the hassle.
