What is Sport Performance Analysis?
Sport Performance Analysis gives athletes and coaches objective information that helps them understand and enhance both team and player performance.
Analysis is completed by an analyst observing and “tagging” events and actions during competition and training sessions.
Usually the events and actions are recorded on a timeline which Sport Performance Analysis software uses to provide detailed statistical information. When presented visually in charts and graphs, for example, statistical information shows immediate and accurate feedback.
Sport Performance Analysis also provides visual video feedback which helps athletes see where improvements can be made.
Sport Performance Analysis helps coaches and athletes understand team and individual player’s strengths and weaknesses; game plans can be enhanced, player skills can be optimised and teams are better prepared.
How does Sport Performance Analysis Help Athletes?
To achieve continued success, coaches and athletes need to understand what game plans, strategies and changes have been successful or unsuccessful. Using Sport Performance Analysis these observations are based on measured statistics rather than guess work.
Using Sport Performance Analysis makes it easier to observe elements that make up a good, or bad performance. Coaches can’t rely on what they see during matches to inform their coaching decisions, research suggests that coaches generally utilise around 40% of the match key performance factors.
If observations made are this inaccurate the enhancing of performance is limited. Decisions based on data drawn from Sport Performance Analysis are measurably more accurate.
