Kairos and Cambridge United Academy partnership

29 April 2021

Kairos have an existing partnership with Cambridge United, helping their first team staff and players manage their scheduling and communications. We are now delighted to announce that that partnership has been extended to include the youth academy as well. Every staff member that is involved with on-field performance and players at every level at the club will now benefit from the centralised planning platform.

The Cambridge United senior men’s team currently play in EFL League 2 and are currently pushing to secure, a previously unexpected, promotion to EFL League 1. It’s that same ambition that has brought them to bring the platform club-wide as they seek to build a culture of excellence from the academy right through to the senior team.

What is Kairos?

Kairos is an online platform that provides the tools to ensure all matches, group, and 1-2-1 sessions, appointments, and any other scheduled activity is centralised in one easy to access place. Team communications are timely and relevant to each staff member while ensuring players are more engaged and empowered to manage their individual schedules. For the academy, critically, Kairos allows a centralised place for all communication with guardians and allows oversight of all activity. The platform also supports the U’s safeguarding responsibilities, allowing them peace of mind that all data is traceable and easy to access.

Head of Academy Operations and Safeguarding Kit Brunswick says;  “Having the Kairos platform has been a real game-changer for us at an academy level. It makes us more efficient at every stage of our operational process and makes life easier for everyone involved. It gives clarity to parents, players and staff and the Kairos team have been brilliant with onboarding and support at every stage.”

Andrew Trimble, Kairos CEO and co-founder, “We’re delighted to see our partnership with Cambridge United grow. We’ve loved seeing the first team do so well this season, and it’s been amazing to know we’ve been a part of that. It’s now a real validation of the benefit they see in the platform that they have taken the move to roll out the product to the academy. We’re looking forward to cheering on their success as well now”
