Accept Secure Payments

We eliminate the awkward cash payment reminders. Easily send invoices and accept online payments in advance, rather than after each session.

As a coach you can quote any job on the job board as well as jobs which you’re invited to by the client.

2. Get To Know Each Client

Once you’ve quoted a job, your contact details and coaching profile will be sent to the client. The client will then call you to get to know you better!

3. Get Paid In-Advance

Payments are made by clients online and in-advance. We guarantee each new booking made through Backyard Coach is a minimum of 5 sessions.

Alex C

“Backyard Coach is a fantastic platform that has helped me develop multiple long term relationships with clients that may otherwise have been unable to participate in the sport they love! I particularly enjoy helping my clients achieve their goals and have fun playing regardless of their experience level and age!”

Anuradha D

“Backyard Coach is the best possible option for coaches looking to provide additional training with great students. The session timings are set to accomodate the student and teacher alike. Thanks to the platform provided by Backyard Coach I’m able to pursue a part-time job while coaching.”

Ashleigh B

“Since I started at Backyard Coach last year, I’ve never had an issue when it comes to client numbers. Every week I have numerous new bookings coming in, as well as my existing clients that have followed me through since I started. I am now at the stage where I have to start turning away bookings because I have more than enough clients.”
