I posted the question below a while back, and now things have progressed a little with my husband keen to start up a website with Training Tilt (https://trainingtilt.com/), to allow him to do a lot of the things mentioned in my post below.
The Training Tilt site will have minimal content and will be the platform for the athletes he coaches to access information specific to them and for him to communicate with them. This site will also be used to take bookings and payments for courses and training camps. My question is, what do we go with for a domain name - (we are thinking intellitri.com, intellitri is the hashtag people use for us), and any advice on how to link the two websites effectively?
Our website ([Domain Private]) started out as a content/info site but since my husband went free-lance in his career as a triathlon coach, it is now the platform for his coaching business.
As such we are looking at how we can now use the website (or something else) to improve communication with athletes.
We are thinking of setting up some password-protected pages for each of his athletes, but would like some advice as to whether this is the best way to go about things.
Here is what he wants to be able to do:
He uses a website called Training Peaks for planning, tracking and analysing each athletes' program. However this doesn't fully provide what he needs in terms of communicating with his athletes.
He wants to be able to be able to present and store information for each of his athletes which they can individually access easily online. For example, videos of sessions they have done, notes from meetings, links to useful resources. Our current thinking is to put up a T2 page for each athlete with their general goals for the year, key races etc, and then have T2s for meeting notes, videos, resources.
He also runs a series of 10 week 'swim schools' which any local people can sign up to. He wants to be able to post the course outline, post videos each week, commentary on the week's session and allow people to post comments. Currently he uses a closed facebook group page but the people attending aren't always facebook users.
Any advice as to how to best do these things?
We are aware there are various platforms 'designed' for this sort of thing, however most require expensive subscriptions for services we don't need, or for numbers of users we are never going to have. The coaching side is limited to 20 athletes at any time, and the swim schools will total no more than 100 users in a 12 month period, but then most of those will only be active for 10-weeks.
