We are really enjoying the SPT platform and data because it gives us the data we need, not the 50 other metrics we don’t. Plus players actually understand the data. Creating custom high speed running zones has also been huge for our program.
SPT GPS has made us a better football team by providing pivotal data when tracking training load of our football athletes. It brings important data every day on our athletes’ performance that is unique to our program.
We’ve used previous GPS tracking software, and this has been a dream in regards to uploading, downloading, and getting tangible information quickly to our staff.Read more
The metrics have been outstanding, and have helped us structure our practices to better mimic game data throughout our week. We love how easy and simple it is to share with our entire staff, and if coaches have a question on a specific issue, we can address and share within minutes. It’s been awesome to break down by player, position, or entire team metrics for our staff, and we are only just getting started!
We have been ecstatic about the price point, and hope to continue to expand beyond our current units to our Lacrosse, Soccer and Rugby teams!
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.
