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.
Being such an explosive sport, soccer players are placed under extreme pressure every time they take the field. SPT provides a program to objectively and accurately quantify training and game days at an individual and team level.Read more
This system is absolutely key to maximising athletic performance and minimising injury.
We literally look at 2-3 metrics on a weekly basis and use those simple stats to make decisions for our players. It's simple really; based on what this player is required to do on the weekend (physically) has he/she done too little or too much during training?Read more
Without the ability to measure running stats, how on earth would a coach or athlete know whether they're doing too much or too little? SPT gives me, as a coach, the information I need to decide whether we're on track during the training week.
This is our second year using SPT as a vital training and measurement tool for our program on a daily basis. Not only can we track workload, intensity, mileage etc. to increase fitness and to monitor overtraining, we can use it during injury rehabilitation.Read more
No longer do our athletes need to rely on their intrinsic feelings towards injury rehab, we have numbers to prove that they are back and fully fit again.
I 100% believe that without SPT we wouldn’t have made the progress we have over the past 24 months and we are now looking forward to another great season!
In an effort to improve the quality of training, Alianza Petrolera acquired 25 units [of the SPT device]. This places the club at the forefront of technology in football training.Read more
SPT is a fundamental tool in the training process since it allows us to monitor the daily workloads and thus control the individual impact of the training. The use of the device is very simple, with a very practical and intuitive software that services physical preparation and the prevention of injuries.
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.
