The SPT GPS devices have been an integral part of our club’s training and fitness programming this season. As the strength and conditioning coach of Marcellin Old Collegians Football Club this year, I have personally found the devices to be significantly beneficial.Read more
The ability to monitor training and match day running data has allowed us to quantify workloads for both individual players and the team, and therefore use them to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury. The range of variables we can track is great for players to see and allows them to compare their work-rate to teammates playing in similar positions. For a team who finished 1 spot from relegation last year, we have now finished 3rd this year and are playing finals; it would be safe to say that the SPT GPS have considerably aided our improvement.
SPT Sport GPS units have been a great product for our club here at Sorrento FC, W.A Perth. As a club, we brought in these GPS units to help us take the next step in understanding our players training loads and game loads better throughout the season.Read more
This season, the data that the GPS units have given us has been incredible - not just in understanding distance covered but by being able to analyse players' speeds (km/hr) and what zones they travel most in during a game. They also help us with the players who are coming back from injury by making sure they get back to their optimal performance before being included in the starting 11 again. We do this by analysing previous data while comparing recent results the player has clocked up.
I would recommend this product to any sporting team or individual who wants to understand their performance better, giving them the knowledge on which aspects of their game they may need to improve on.
We have been using the SPT GPS system at Gold Coast City FC for half a season now and it is really starting to provide some valuable information to myself as the head coach, the staff and the players as well.Read more
I can use the information to track physical match performance and training loading, which can be helpful in injury prevention. The players also like to be aware of their stats which can only enhance their understanding of what we do and why.
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.
The Cranbourne FC in the South East Football Netball League have been using SPT GPS technology for the past three years to monitor and track player movement and intensity. We have been using SPT on our midfielders to help them understand the high-end gut running that is required during their matches.Read more
We are able to compare their GPS results to those of a VFL midfielders, this helps the Cranbourne boys set high benchmarks which leads to an increase in performance. We mainly look at the total distance that our midfielders run and the Zone 6 metres that they gain. I would recommend SPT to any football team based on the fact that it is a great tool from an education point of view and it gives the players a good understanding of where they need to be.
We bought 10 of the units for our football club here at the Koondrook/Barham Raiders and used them for the first time on Saturday. The results were amazing, not only could we assess total distance, it shows running patterns and top speed. A bonus that comes with the players wearing the GPS units is that they knew they couldn't hide as their running efforts were being recorded.
