Athlete Monitoring Solutions
The data gathered during athlete monitoring assessments is examined as both group and individual data. By tracking both measures, the sport scientist can work with the sport coach to determine trends in performance for the whole team and to identify individual athletes that may require alterations in their training – this is key to the understanding that each athlete responds differently to training and other stressors and can provide sport coaches with direct feedback on whether or not an athlete is progressing as anticipated. By comparing the monitoring data to the team’s training plan (e.g., volume of work, intensity), the sport coach and strength and conditioning coach can determine whether the desired training goals are being accomplished. This type of information can also assist the sport coach and sport scientist in determining the underlying cause(s) of undesirable training effects. This partnership increases the ability to protect athletes from future training problems (e.g., overtraining and/or injury).
