Once The COACH is properly SET UP, you can begin using your soccer ball launcher.
The following instructions will guide you through its use:

        Before launching soccer balls at a receiver, test The COACH’s aim to ensure
        proper settings.

  1.    To set angle of release, remove locking pins from legs,
                                                                               Locking PIN
        raise or lower track, and reinsert locking pins at desired           for adjustability
        marked angle. Predetermined angles are marked on the
        legs.                                                              ADJUSTING
  2.    Place soccer ball in ball pouch.

                              3.    Attach crank to hex nut of tensioning winch

                              4.    Crank tensioning winch to desired output speed.
                                    Output speeds are marked on track.
       THE CRANK              5.    REMOVE CRANK before releasing ball.

        You MUST remove crank before launching a soccer ball. Failure to do so will
        result in possible injury.

  6.    Place foot on side rail of frame to further support the machine.

  7.    Depress firing lever and HOLD DOWN lever and hold until ball has left the ball

        Release of lever during firing will result in abrupt stoppage of machine. This is
        a SAFETY MECHANISM that allows machine to stop.

  8.    If instant stoppage of the machine is required, release the firing lever. The
        COACH will stop, and the ball will release at a much lower speed.

The COACH should be stored in an enclosed area, which protects it from hazardous
environmental effects such as rain, snow, sleet, hail and gusting wind. It can be stored
in temperatures from 0ºF to 120ºF, but will experience a longer life in conditions around
room temperature, 70ºF, ±15ºF. The COACH can be effectively stored at any altitude.

In order to collapse The COACH, abide by the following instructions:

  1.    Remove one leg at a time from track sockets and frame post sockets.

  2.    Place detached legs in bottom of frame.

  3.    Fold track inward at middle hinge and lower into frame, leaving ball pouch at
        the front area of the track.

                                  4.    Once The COACH is collapsed into its frame,
                                        grasp handle on bottom rear of frame and
                                        wheel to storage location.

                     Handle for


In order to properly maintain The COACH, the machine should be cleaned bi-weekly
with specified soap and hot water.

         Do not over lubricate. Over lubrication will inhibit safety mechanisms from
         properly functioning.

Using light machine oil (20W) and the following guidelines, lubricate The COACH:

WHAT                   WHEN                    HOW

Crank Mechanism        every six months        Put one drop of oil on the pivot point of
                                               the tensioning winch mechanism

Track Bearings         every six months        Put one drop of oil on each track

Track Hinges           when necessary          Put one drop of oil on each hinge

Wheels                 when necessary          Put one drop of oil on each wheel

Check bands monthly for visible band defects and failures such as rips, tears and
splits. When a band becomes defective or breaks, the subsequent steps should be

  1.    Use a utility knife to cut band away from attachment points, taking care not to
        cut toward oneself.

  2.    Check cap on attachment hook to make certain it is still in good condition. If it
        is not, cut it away with utility knife as well.

  3.    If cap is to be replaced, spray inner surface lightly with spray lubricant and
        push onto attachment hook.

  4.    Repeat Step 3 with replacement band, making sure band is inserted far
        enough to cover the entire cap on the attachment hook.

  5.    Allow two (2) hours for lubricant to dry and secure attachment before using
        machine again.
