At AAP we use GPS Tracking to provide analysis of individual and team performance over a number of different sports.
GPS Tracking can be undertaken and utilised to monitor performance in a number of ways:
(i) Game Day
(ii) Practice Matches
(iii) Training Sessions
(iv) Specialised Drills
(vi) Individual & Team motivation
REAL TIME DATA
Real time data can be gathered in any of the above mentioned examples where information is provided to coaching staff instantly. The advantage of this is that you receive the information you require to make the appropriate decisions at the crucial time.
Individual player reports can also be run and provided by the next training session to track progress & provide feedback in hardcopy.
BENEFITS OF GPS TRACKING
Accurately Quantify Training Load
Know exactly how much work a player has done in a given session. Objectively assess loading across a range of intensities for distance, speed, acceleration, heart rate and impacts
Compare Individual Players
Compare players across a range of performance measures in training and game. Use this information to target outliers in the group, assess strengths and weaknesses of individual players and quantify changes under fatigue
Quantify Work Rate
Easily compare training drills to game intensity. Use this information to guide training structure, manage overload, manipulate drills and educate coaches and conditioning staff
Understand the Demands of the Game
Collate game data to benchmark positional demands, prioritise athletic development and limitations of your players and identify areas for improvement.
Some of the sports we use GPS tracking to assist with overall performance analysis, tracking and improvement are listed below:
The AFL has been a pioneer in the use of GPS tracking and we regularly get the feedback in the media
Now GPS tracking is being used in the AFL to discover the demands of Junior AFL. Read about the Deakin UNI/AFL junior AFL study:
- See how far a player has run
- The intensity of the running
- How many sprints
- Benchmark this information to other levels ( EG Local Soccer vs EPL) or Senior AFL to Junior AFL.
- Get feedback on what to do with this information
Manchester United use GPS Tracking in their Sports Science Program. Read below:
