The SPT GPS units have been a valuable addition to the high performance program at the Northern Blues Football Club. The data attained from the GPS enable us to monitor training and match workloads for individuals within our playing group which help with decisions around player preparation and recovery.Read more
The GameTraka software has proved to be beneficial during sessions to look at live data and make adjustments as necessary based on actual loads. Additionally, the players can make their own account and access their numbers as soon as data is uploaded, which gives them feedback on their physical performance.
The VSS platform gives a comprehensive analysis of the distances and speeds from each session and allows us to produce a customised report to be presented to coaches and players.
Overall, the SPT product is pivotal to our player monitoring and management.
SPT2 has allowed us to effectively track player loads at Melbourne University Women's Football Club (VFLW) through its simple to use software. The devices are durable and cost-effective allowing us to use them across the full squad at training and games.Read more
They allow us to monitor training load metrics and give us with the numbers to help us provide our athletes with the correct training stimulus to ensure adaptions are occurring without overtraining.
If you want to investigate your data further, the VSS allows the export of data to excel which can then be input into load monitoring spreadsheets to enhance your ability to analyse data and manage athletes.
I would highly recommend SPT to various team based field sports of all levels, from local to elite level.
We capture two lots of data. The first lot we look at is how many kilometres [players] cover at training and after games. We use that data to work out whether we are giving the players too much load or not enough load and try to ensure optimal performance.Read more
One of the main reasons we use this data is for our FFA cup games. Sometimes we will play three games in seven days. We want to make sure we get our players’ loading right so they are not at risk of injury for the next week.
The other time we use the data is for the players' rehabilitation. We will take them through a 5-stage return-to-training protocol. We capture their data so we can make sure that by stage 5 (before they go back to play) they can cover that 5-6km mark they usually cover at training.
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.
Using SPT GPS Units gave us a huge advantage on our competition and a big part of our premiership success.
It allowed us to work closely with our players on their running and work rate data, monitor work loads during games and training and set up healthy competition between our players which continually drove us to become what we believed to be the fittest and most durable team in the competition.Read more
Tracking our players has taken our clubs professionalism to the next level and we highly recommend SPT if you are looking to take the next step.
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.
