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 SPT device gives us a lot of reliable and valuable data. We can look at total sprint values and have an idea on how to mould and shape our conditioning for the future.Read more
The response from our student athletes was immediate. As soon as the conditioning group was finished, they all wanted to know their work output, distance and who sprinted the fastest. There is no more hiding behind “effort” because we will now be able to calculate effort. Maximizing effort is key to athletic success.Read more
Utilizing SPT will allow us to identify specific players’ work volume and how it may affect their work output. If a player work output peaks at the wrong time or is miss calculated, this could lead to injury.
