Testimonial – Bertrand Pachoud – Handball Coach

Photo credit: Elodie Perret As part of the launch of Sportiw for handball, we asked for the opinion of Bertrand Pachoud, coach and user of Sportiw: Hello Bertrand, can you introduce yourself please? Hello, I am Bertrand Pachoud, 43 years old, current coach of Aix les bains in NM2, holder of DES and federal certificates.I was in charge of the Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc Handball Academy for 16 years where I worked with a large number of players who have become professionals at different levels: national teams, Champions League, etc., but also players who moved on to life / club projects in national divisions. In handball, what do you think of the way recruiting is handled and what are the current issues? In France there are 2 levels of recruitment:– the first concerns professional handball players who are supervised by major agents who manage the career choices of their clients– the second is much more obsolete and relates more to opportunities from “people you know” or “blows of luck”. How would a platform like Sportiw help the world of handball? Sportiw is an incredible platform!It is fluid, easy to access, complete and it enlightens all the people involved in handball and facilitates their connection. For you as a coach, how will Sportiw help to improve and facilitate your recruitment? Sportiw is simply an incredible opportunity for any coach. It allows him to widen his field of contacts, to come into direct contact with players, to have essential information on the players, to be able to contact other fellow coaches and to match his team’s project with the expectations of...

NEW-IN : CHAT & CONTACTS

Many of you asked us about these features, so we developed them! Sportiw is a start-up, that is to say that we cannot develop “everything at the same time”, but we are advancing step by step. The advantage is to be able to ask you what is the priority. For several months many clubs and players (or agents) met on Sportiw, but they had to exchange outside the website. Today, to overcome that, we are launching the chat and the contacts. What does that mean ? The network of contacts The goal of Sportiw is to provide solutions for sports recruitment, but beyond that goal, we aim to gather the sports community. With the network of contacts, you will be able to find your current/former teammates, coaches or all the people you know in your sports life. The idea is to be able to chat with them in a dedicated space without necessarily having to add them to your private social media that does not concern your sports life. These people will once again be able to help you by sharing team offers, tips, recommend you, or even advise you on your CV. The chat Recruiters can find candidates on Sportiw, but they only had access to their contact information and had to contact them elsewhere. To simplify exchanges,  Sportiw launches the chat. As on other online sites, it is a dedicated messaging system that will allow you to chat with other members of the site. These are new big functions, so we are counting on you to report any bugs you may encounter. We will take care of...
