This Is AFCA Magazine and AFCA Weekly, the official magazine and email newsletter platform of the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), have partnered with Just Play Sports Solutions to deliver leading-edge content for football coaches. Just Play will exclusively provide drill and play diagrams for the AFCA’s magazine and email newsletter platforms in 2018, delivering expanded and enhanced coaching content for AFCA members.

Just Play is widely recognized as a leader in providing interactive teaching tools for coaches at all levels. Just Play allows coaches to quickly prepare playbooks, game plans, scouting reports, and quizzes with dynamic, easy-to-use coaching tools. Coaches can share information through an interactive app which increases player learning, and coaches are able to see players’ activity to keep them accountable and ensure understanding.

“The membership of the AFCA will benefit from professionally drawn play and drill diagrams in This Is AFCA Magazine and AFCA Weekly,” said Paul Markgraff, Managing Editor of This Is AFCA and AFCA Weekly. “This represents an extraordinary step forward for both the magazine and email newsletter platform of the AFCA. The members of the AFCA have told us time and again that they use This Is AFCA Magazine and AFCA Weekly to inform the way they coach, and we are extremely happy to be providing next-level play and drill diagrams using Just Play’s state-of-the-art platform. We believe this partnership will serve to continually enhance the football coaching content and educational opportunities offered to AFCA members.”

“It’s important that we continue to show the AFCA membership that we are always investing in the products and tools that help shape the way they coach football,” said Todd Rank, Publisher of This Is AFCA and AFCA Weekly. “Working and partnering with the team at Just Play has been exceedingly easy and rewarding for everyone involved. They are true professionals in the industry and we value the extensive expertise they’ve accumulated as the leader in play and drill diagramming. Their content is top quality, and we are certain it will make This Is AFCA Magazine and AFCA Weekly better tools for coaches at all levels of the game.”

“We are thrilled to partner with This Is AFCA and AFCA Weekly,” said Austin Barone, Co-Founder of Just Play Sports Solutions. “The American Football Coaches Association represents the gold standard in football coaching education, interaction and networking. This is just the first step in providing much more comprehensive content solutions for coaches, built on the best teaching solution on the market. The AFCA is the very best in the world at what it does. Through the AFCA, coaches have the opportunity to develop themselves personally and professionally to become the best coaches and mentors possible. We are excited to be a part of that.”

Just Play Sports Solutions was founded in 2014 by Austin Barone and Andy Wachter, two former college athletes. Both spent time as Division 1 athletes and worked in supporting roles for their respective football and basketball coaching staffs. Understanding the workload coaches endure and the struggles players experience to get ready for competition led them to develop the JustPlay system. Just Play streamlines a coach’s workflow and allows coaches to better teach their teams. Just Play is rapidly changing how coaches engage their teams and is being utilized by hundreds of football and basketball coaches across the country.
