SPT gives you an idea of the match demands at our level. We wore them in games and then we could look at the data post game and see the match demands and match up these demands in training and make sure we hit those certain metrics during the week.Read more
That was valuable because you don’t want to over work too much and you don’t want to under work too much. The ability to use the metrics you gain from a big game and integrate it into your sessions and weekly prep was invaluable to us.
SPT gives the ability for players to log in and view their data and they take a special interest in that. It makes it very competitive in training too, when you pair two players in the same position or they are vying for the same spot, you pair them together and they can compete against each other and can see whose working harder.
For all the software and statistics that came with SPT’s hardware for its price, it was a no-brainer. We went from having one team in the grand finals last year to all three this year. The tech and statistics from SPT are monumental in helping us monitor and improve player fitness during and after the key pre-season. It helps us develop the optimum level of intensity for recovery.Read more
As the Strength and Conditioning Coach I need to know how much I can push my players and how to manage load training to prevent injuries. SPT provides feedback on individual player and team performances so I can monitor players and adjust training to meet the objectives of each individual session. For this reason we use SPT GPS to help manage and study the player’s Performances.Read more
It is an absolute privilege to use the SPT GPS for Griquas to track performance and manage load in what is a long season for our players. The GPS has provided some insight and trends on our players both individually and in a team context.Read more
It has allowed us to monitor their every on field movement, impact and their capacities. It has guided us in how to individually and collectively come up with programs and systems to bring out the optimum performance of the Griquas. It has allowed us to take our game to a new level massively.
Currently being the first year of using GPS technology within the club we have seen a big improvement in match fitness, specifically during the closing stages of games.Read more
I put this down to a mixture of systemised programming and the accountability of the players to hit their GPS targets during training sessions thanks to the help of SPT. It is exciting to see the direction they are going with further technology enhancements to be made, and look forward to working with them in the future.
Being able to use SPT’s technology has enabled the Physiotherapists at Optimus Health to work closely with our Sports Science Team and help to reduce soft tissue injuries over the 2016/17 seasonRead more
We have managed to use the GPS data to give feedback to coaches about important data and load variables, including acute-chronic ratios and flagging players when their loads are not in a ‘sweet spot’.
