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.
SPT has been a Godsend for our program. The information we get from the units has made a huge impact on how we run our practices.Read more
Without a doubt, the money we spent on the SPT units is the best money we have spent in the 15 years our program has been around. The information we get has been truly transformational.
We can not stress enough the impact that SPT has had on our program in a short period of time. There is not a single product that will have a bigger impact on your program.
With SPT GPS we were able to objectify players outputs to understand the demands of a match. For instance, in the semi-final CIF match, our most intense game of the year, we were able to see some of our players ran over eight miles in a single game. This was helpful because it set a mark at which we can compare all other performances to.Read more
We also have used SPT GPS to compare players to each other through GameTraka. This gives me some tools of measurement when comparing our players and evaluating them against their peers.
We believe that student-athletes respond to 'real' data, that they are more likely to engage in the performance improvement process if it is about themselves. We are able to identify areas of strength and have them 'feel' that their strength is recognised, validated and justified. Conversely, we are able identify areas of improvement and tailor specific programs for their needs.Read more
The Football Academy specialist teachers have a platform to discuss the Physiological aspects of the curriculum and students are required to complete a written log to demonstrate their understanding of those aspects.
We chose SPT for the ease of use, it is financially attainable and the platform where data is collected are definitely key attributes in our decision. What we have found so far, is that the students really like the interface that you provide, that they are engaged and have the want to improve through the capability to compare results.
The SPT GPS trackers are an excellent tool for measuring your top athletes against the rest of the players. Players can be held accountable for not giving maximum effort.Read more
Psychologically, the players react positively when they turn their tracker on and go to work. They know they’re being tracked so they give that little extra effort.
SPT GPS has definitely aided our team’s development and took us up another level. It was also a great learning tool for the staff that aids in practice and game planning and decisions.
Our school purchased SPT GPS devices to use within our Physical Education/Health Department. Our students and staff have thoroughly enjoyed using 21st century technology to gain feedback and information, similar to that of professional athletes.Read more
Students are motivated to compare their data from previous performances, against other students, and to that of what a professional athlete may achieve. The devices have become a key component of our senior practical lessons, where students have applied results to make links to theory topics and content such as energy systems, fitness (training methods), concepts of physical activity, methods of assessing physical activity, movement analysis and feedback, as well as many others.
