A bit like any good business idea, the origins of CoursePro lead back to 4 key things:
Some passionate people
A EUREKA moment
And a pretty great solution
The passionate people
Cap2 was formed back in 2009 by Pete Walker and Ross Mccaw. The two young men had two things in common, they loved sport, and they loved technology!
They’re not the only passionate people in the Cap2 story. Pete and Ross worked hand in hand with their local leisure centre full of passionate sports teachers and coaches who helped push their great idea forward!
So what was the problem!?
Before CoursePro, sports teachers and coaches from Swim Schools, Tennis Clubs, Gymnastics Clubs, Martial Arts Clubs and many many more struggled with the issues of admin. If marking registers and assessing students whilst running a class wasn’t tough enough already, they also had the job of scheduling lessons, creating lesson plans, developing timetables, organising bookings and top-ups, retaining customer information, contacting and engaging customers and feeding back achievement and assessment news to parents. In fact, there’s a huge amount more to it than that, but you can see the problem; teachers weren’t teaching, they were doing admin!
The EUREKA moment
The two young men had their EUREKA moment whilst sat at their local leisure centre in Taunton. The pair, who had an eye for technology, noticed the difficulties that the centre had in organising their courses and came up with a plan…
CoursePro would be the first and the leader of its kind. A software that did not just help Sports Clubs to change the way that they dealt with admin, but a revolutionary tool that would hugely reduce the amount of time and effort Clubs put into non-teaching work.
The company, now with a new management team, has become one of the fasting growing firms of its kind, leading the market. To date CoursePro is used in thousands of sites worldwide to manage more than 2.6 million members. The product is used by more than 30 different sports and activities and is revolutionising sports courses all over the world.
