SPT provides us with simple and effective data capturing for our athletes which is vital to our rugby program.
The data allows us to be more accurate, set outcomes and see if we have achieved them. The players also enjoy the technology and appreciate it is an important part in the whole strength & conditioning picture.
To be the best, you have to prepare to be the best and by having all the data at your fingertips by using SPT devices we gain that extra 10% that is required to win those close games.
We look at distance travelled during a game to monitor player load, we also like the intensity reading to see what effort players are putting in and we also analyse work rate to see if a player is wasting energy by not running the correct lines etc.
If you're not wearing an SPT whilst training or playing then you are missing out on being the best player you can be, be it elite, amateur or beginner! Try it out.... you won’t be disappointed.
SPT has made a significant difference in re-shaping Indiana Men's Rugby training from the very first training the technology was introduced.
Not only are our coaches more informed, but our players have a better understanding of what they can/need to do on their own to best prepare for upcoming seasons or competitions. They are following their own progress and asking questions frequently about what certain numbers mean or how to improve key metrics within their performance.
Right now, SPT and its data is an ace up our sleeve that, I believe, is giving us an advantage over our competition. In addition, the SPT staff have been extremely supportive in providing help when asked while making sure our experience and operation is going above and beyond our expectations.
We have thoroughly enjoyed using SPT, the data we collect has helped us tremendously on the pitch, our athletes love the feedback they receive and they have seen the value in having such technology at their fingertips.
We really enjoy the functionality of the units and the GameTraka software. It's easy to interpret and we have found it invaluable for tracking certain metrics that we like to keep an eye on.
We recommend SPT to any sports program looking to take their game to the next level.
SPT gives you an idea of the match demands at our level. We wore them in games and then we could look at the data post game and see the match demands and match up these demands in training and make sure we hit those certain metrics during the week.
That was valuable because you don’t want to over work too much and you don’t want to under work too much. The ability to use the metrics you gain from a big game and integrate it into your sessions and weekly prep was invaluable to us.
SPT gives the ability for players to log in and view their data and they take a special interest in that. It makes it very competitive in training too, when you pair two players in the same position or they are vying for the same spot, you pair them together and they can compete against each other and can see whose working harder.
As the Strength and Conditioning Coach I need to know how much I can push my players and how to manage load training to prevent injuries. SPT provides feedback on individual player and team performances so I can monitor players and adjust training to meet the objectives of each individual session. For this reason we use SPT GPS to help manage and study the player’s Performances.
For all the software and statistics that came with SPT’s hardware for its price, it was a no-brainer. We went from having one team in the grand finals last year to all three this year. The tech and statistics from SPT are monumental in helping us monitor and improve player fitness during and after the key pre-season. It helps us develop the optimum level of intensity for recovery.
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.
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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
