At Mount Ridley College we have 150 students involved in an Elite Sports Program that covers a range of sports (Netball, Basketball, Soccer, Aussie Rules and Rugby League). We have found using the SPT GPS trackers in class, trainings and game day matches a valuable tool when it comes to monitoring individual students and giving us the edge over our opponents.Read more
Our Year 12 students have found the data collection invaluable for current units of work and it gives them instant data they can collect and work from – through live tracking on the app or quickly downloaded to individual performances.
On the sporting and training front, students are jumping up and down to wear the units, the tops are comfortable and they quickly forget they are wearing the units. We have just purchased the heart rate vests to integrate the units so we can continue tracking at a higher level and can’t wait to put them to the test.
From students to staff – they are a great tool in the classroom and on the field.
Whitefriars College have been incorporating the SPT Trackers into their Sport and PE programs. Students have been wearing the trackers in the ACC sports competition for football and soccer where coaches have an opportunity to monitor data from the tracker with the student after the game.Read more
Coaches are able to compare and analyse the data that comes from several players and discuss with them areas of improvement as well as areas of strength. Coaches are finding that the students are very competitive and interested in their data readings.
SPT has been a Godsend for our program. The information we get from the units has made a huge impact on how we run our practices.Read more
Without a doubt, the money we spent on the SPT units is the best money we have spent in the 15 years our program has been around. The information we get has been truly transformational.
We can not stress enough the impact that SPT has had on our program in a short period of time. There is not a single product that will have a bigger impact on your program.
The biggest reasons that we purchased SPT were:Read more
1.Safety of our players - this has always been our #1 Priority: SPT helps us monitor everyone during hot days as well as making sure that we aren’t working them too hard so they don't get as many injuries.
2. So we can compare to what these guys will be doing in college: A lot of our players will get to the next level, so we want to make sure that we are preparing them the best we can to help them excel at the next level.
3. Efficiency: We wanted to get smarter with what we were demanding of our players in games and practice to ensure we are getting the best results on Friday nights.
4. Consistency of demands: We want to make sure that we are training throughout the week for what the demands of the game are.
With SPT we can now make educated adjustments throughout the week to noticeably increase our efficiency.
The SPT2 units and vests are great. The athletes and families love the ability to access this data. The value of and the importance of this data became ever increasing as the athletes became familiar with the relevance of the data.Read more
The team recently won the 4 nation tournament in Germany, showcasing the success in terms of athlete performance.
With SPT GPS we were able to objectify players outputs to understand the demands of a match. For instance, in the semi-final CIF match, our most intense game of the year, we were able to see some of our players ran over eight miles in a single game. This was helpful because it set a mark at which we can compare all other performances to.Read more
We also have used SPT GPS to compare players to each other through GameTraka. This gives me some tools of measurement when comparing our players and evaluating them against their peers.
