2 reviews for G.A.P.S. Australian Football Coaching Software

  1. 5 out of 5

    Our club bought the GAPS AFL coaching software for all of our coaches in the Year 8 to Year 12 age groups. All the coaches have found the software extremely helpful with finding drills and activities they can use for training, and in particular in helping to plan training sessions. The software is easy to use and the animation player is very helpful when trying to understand the activities. The software saves a lot of time searching websites for drills and activities and we would recommend it to all coaches coaching teams from 12 years and up.

    I purchased the product for personal use. The quick time install on windows 8 failed, but this consumed the products licence. I have tried to install on a win7 machine – all good except the product licence is tied up by the win 8 machine. I have been unsuccessful in getting support via email or phone, not a satisfied customer I would rate zero if I could. Paul Sheahan
