We use SPT to gain valuable information to our players, particularly those in similar size and stature which also enables some healthy competition between the boys. SPT was first used during our premiership season in 2018. They certainly appreciated having access to the new technology and receiving that immediate feedback certainly put an edge on their opponents.Read more
As a club, we have seen our players run harder and clock up higher work rates and appreciate the quality insights we are now receiving for each individual that wears the units.
Using SPT GPS Units gave us a huge advantage on our competition and a big part of our premiership success.Read more
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.
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.
Our team invested in the GPS technology so we could effectively monitor the intensity and volume of our training sessions throughout the year. The technology allows us to optimize performance-training outcomes for both individuals and the team for the in-season, mid-season and off-season recovery period.Read more
For the demands of all field-based sports outdoors, SPT has been fantastic in providing us with simple parameters that are easily communicated to coaches and players alike.
Being able to use SPT’s technology has enabled the Physiotherapists at Optimus Health to work closely with our Sports Science Team and help to reduce soft tissue injuries over the 2016/17 season. We have managed to use the GPS data to give feedback to coaches about important data and load variables, including acute-chronic ratios and flagging players when their loads are not in a ‘sweet spot’.
I decided to use SPT when I was preparing to return from a lower back injury. I had been trying to get back [into training] for a month or two after I was cleared, but every time I would begin to push myself, I would find that my back would begin to hurt. I realized that I was creating the problems by increasing my workload too soon.Read more
I began researching companies and products that would allow me to see the results of my training sessions so that I could use the data to slowly progress back to full fitness. After reading and educating myself on the GPS device that SPT provides, I decided that the features offered at the price point was unmatched. It is extremely user-friendly and a great way to analyze data on a day-to-day basis. I continue to use the device throughout the off-season to monitor the workload and intensity of each training session so I can better take care of my body and prepare properly for the upcoming season.
St John’s Old Collegians FC have been using the SPT GPS units to gather training and match data on metres run per minute and high intensity running. This has allowed us to evaluate the quality of our training in relation to the intensities our players experience during games and adjust and improve how we train.Read more
We also track total load during the week to manage our yearly macro cycle, enabling players to peak for important games and minimise significant increases in load, which may lead to a greater risk of injuries. Our players have really enjoyed seeing and using their data as motivation to improve.
