Here’s Why You Need FastDraw iPad This Season

By Tony Miller

FastDraw iPad is fun, convenient, user friendly and travels well to clinics – check out a free trial today.

If you’re reading this, then chances are you’re already a regular FastDraw user. But for the 10K Desktop version users, many of you may not be taking full advantage of FastDraw iPad (You can save $ by purchasing the Desktop + iPad bundle, FYI) . For me personally, the convenience and ease of being able to get out my iPad and quickly draw up a play or even diagram on-the-go makes FastDraw iPad app a #nobrainer. For me and I’m sure for other coaches, it can be more convenient to grab the iPad than a laptop. The ability to use your finger to trace diagrams is incredibly easy. Just $24.99 for the iPad alone for a year subscription is pretty hard to beat, and if you’re using it right, it pays for itself in no time.

With that idea of time-saving and increased productivity in mind, here are three ways FastDraw iPad can enhance your coaching experience this season.

1. Easily Grow Your Library

How many NBA and NCAA basketball games do you watch over the course of a year? If you grabbed your iPad while watching and diagrammed one play from each of those games, how many new plays would you end up with by the end of the season? How about if you diagrammed one play from just half of those games? Now understand, more isn’t always better, and not every play will fit your team. But think of the library you’d have at your fingertips in 2-3 years!

2. Share Your Ideas InstantlyiPad_Sync

Sometimes when I’m watching a game, I’ll see a play and think, “I wonder if Coach Uwarow would like that for our staff, or even team.” Because my iPad is close by, I have the ability to immediately draw up the play and send it to him via email, Twitter or Facebook. There have been times where I’m watching a game, I’ve sent him a play, and he’ll text me back with, “I saw that. Let’s try it.” By using the Sync feature, I automatically have that play in my library of the Desktop version for any more adjustments, and ready to add to the next day’s practice plan. I can also FastTrade the play to others on our staff, or even to coaches in my network – just not in our conference! It’s a great way to keep in touch and build relationships in the coaching business.

3. Improve Your Clinic Experience

Fall is coaching clinic season. Whether you’re looking for suggestions for improving team culture, a drill for individual coach drawing on ipadworkouts, or a last second SLOB, most clinics provide enough information for a book’s worth of material. Unfortunately, if you’re like me, you run out of space and – specifically – court diagram templates in the first 15 minutes of a presentation. You already know the solution to that problem – the FastDraw iPad app.
