why we're here
A movement of coaches using sport for good.
People need sport to be better.
That’s why we created a company that supports those who intentionally use sport to change people, communities and systems.
Our vision is a global network of coaches using sport as a movement for good.
We’re here for the difference-makers.
WHAT WE DO
Help for coaches and organisations.
Our tools enable coaches to complete the plan-do-review loop so they can speed up their learning, connect with the people they coach and become highly effective coaches. Our tools are designed following hundreds of test uses by coaches at club, community, high school, college and professional levels.
Our support services enable coaches and organisations to become more aware of their strengths, increase the level of care in team environments and create impact for the people and the community they serve.
How we work
Led by the needs of people.
Our work is informed by evidence and rooted in the realities of coaching.
We approach our work with three core principles:
- Understand the needs of the coaches, players and organisations we serve
- Design tools and support to meet those needs
- Measure the impact of our work
What we stand for
Tech-Tac is not enough
Winning and impact don’t have to compete
No coach should do it alone
The MVMT Model
Everything we do is underpinned by The MVMT Model.
We combine a coaching model with an impact model to provide coaches and organisations with a framework to achieve both sporting results and social impact.
The Coaching Blocks
The coaching blocks give equal space to the areas of technical/tactical (WHAT), coaching methods (HOW), understanding people (WHO) and the personal drivers for each coach (WHY).
The Impact Circles
The impact circles describe the ripple effect of impact for coaches, players and the community they serve.
The Measurement Arrow
We measure impact to identify compelling evidence for the difference coaches and organisations make for people and communities.
