As you know only too well, coaches are busy people often managing multiple roles both personally and professionally. As you balance competitive instincts with the need to keep your players safe and protect against injury, informing your sessions with reliable, objective data can transform the way you manage your players.
Here are four key ways PLAYERTEK TEAM can support you as you try to take a more objective view of team performance:
1. Validate your methods
As a coach, you have a plan for enabling your team to reach peak performance during games. As you set intensity thresholds and try to avoid overtraining, PLAYERTEK TEAM can quickly identify whether your players achieved their daily goals in relation to match-level exertion.
2. Keep players accountable
Understanding how hard your players are really working can be a major challenge for coaches. Using objective data to measure players against their benchmark numbers, PLAYERTEK TEAM helps you to track an athlete’s progress across matches, training sessions, or the season as a whole.
3. Player Profiling
Team selection is often a subjective process, but PLAYERTEK TEAM gives you data to highlight the players who are ready to step up to the first team. Using session comparisons and matching players against each other, PLAYERTEK TEAM can help determine who deserves their chance in the starting lineup.
4. Injury prevention and rehabilitation
A quick analysis of PLAYERTEK TEAM metrics can identify when athletes are in danger of being overloaded. This can help tailor training to the needs of individual athletes and manage rest and recovery. Similarly, in the event of an injury, PLAYERTEK TEAM can help you to monitor rehabilitation, with data showing when players have returned to their pre-injury levels.
