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.
The game performance analysis from SPT has been outstanding and has given the coaches valuable insights into the work rate of the players. The SPT2 live data has helped the players stay engaged in performance for the whole 90 mins of the game.Read more
The price and the simplicity of the software is well suited for any division. Eastern Lions have shown a huge improvement in season 2019 with results but also most importantly, have been able to use the SPT units to help players stay on the park injury free and become fitter, stronger and more competitive.
The Eastern Lions Football Club would recommend SPT for any team wanting to climb up the ladder.
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.
