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.
The trackers have been really useful and informative in terms of gaining data for our players. Some of the distances the players have been tracked are really surprising and as a result we have adjusted the players time and running patterns on the ground.Read more
The players are really committed into helping us gain this information and it also gives them a sense of ownership and has started a few in house competitions with some of the playing group.
The positions we have had the trackers have been all over the ground including our ruckmen. We are currently undefeated this season.
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
The game performance analysis has been outstanding and has given the coaches valuable insights into the work rate of the players. An undefeated start to the season typified by strong last quarters leave us no doubt that SPT have given us a definitive competitive advantage.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
We believe that student-athletes respond to 'real' data, that they are more likely to engage in the performance improvement process if it is about themselves. We are able to identify areas of strength and have them 'feel' that their strength is recognised, validated and justified. Conversely, we are able identify areas of improvement and tailor specific programs for their needs.Read more
The Football Academy specialist teachers have a platform to discuss the Physiological aspects of the curriculum and students are required to complete a written log to demonstrate their understanding of those aspects.
We chose SPT for the ease of use, it is financially attainable and the platform where data is collected are definitely key attributes in our decision. What we have found so far, is that the students really like the interface that you provide, that they are engaged and have the want to improve through the capability to compare results.
