GPSports is proud to announce that Netherlands and France have advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.  Of the thirty-two teams that began the month long tournament eight remain in contention for the most prestigious trophy in soccer/football.  Two of the remaining eight train with GPSports SPI HPU units and SPI IQ software.

 

france football-associationThe French squad takes on Germany on July Fourth in a match many are calling the best of the quarterfinals.  France has surrendered only two goals thus far in the tournament while scoring ten including five against Switzerland and three against Honduras,  On the flip side, after scoring four against a struggling Portugal, Germany has failed to impress and hasn’t lived up to expectations.

France has the ability to beat Germany and if they do so they will be positioned for a potential World Cup win.

 

 

Royal_Netherlands_Football_Association_Logo.svgNetherlands survived with a late goal against Mexico in the round of 16 to advance and take on Costa Rica on July 5 in Salvador.  The Dutch entered the World Cup with low expectations but a resounding 5-1 victory over defending champions Spain lit a fire under Oranje and they have gone a perfect 4-0 so far in the tournament.  

If each team can win their next two games we will see an all GPSports World Cup final match, just as we saw an all GPSports Champions League final.

 

 

These teams and other top teams in sports worldwide train with GPSports technology because they know we provide the broadest range of data and the most accurate data of any sports GPS product on the market.

Thanks to the Triple Threat Show on AM 610 in Houston for having GPSports Grant Thorne on air to talk about GPS technology and its impact on the NFL.  Below you will find a link to that interview but first, why does your American football team need GPSports technology?  Here are a few reasons.

GPSports – Driving Innovation in the NFL

Being such an explosive sport, American Football players are placed under extreme pressure every time they take the field.

GPSports technologies provide a system to objectively and accurately quantify practice and game load at an individual level.   Quantifying load is absolutely key to maximizing athletic performance and minimizing injury rates.

Pete Carroll TrophyGPSports is working with these teams to ensure an analysis model specific to American Football is implemented.  Results are positive, with the system providing a great insight into positional demands, training structure, individual player loading profiles and indicators of soft tissue injury.  

 

 

Iowa Hawkeye LogoThe University of Iowa was the first team in North America to get our new indoor technology, allowing the Hawkeyes to reap the benefits of the GPSports SPI HPU unit and SPI IQ software no matter where they train.

 

Why use GPSports technology to train your athletes?

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Understand the Demands of the Game

Collate game data to benchmark positional demands, prioritize athletic development and limitations of your players and identify areas for improvement.

Translated from the FC Petrolul Ploiesti website:

FC PetrolulOil has invested over 150,000 euros last year in the latest equipment, purchasing anGPSports system used to accurately assess the physical parameters of the players. The system is implemented in training and games and the big European clubs, including Chelsea, Liverpool, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Ajax and FC Porto.

During competitive, especially in the training sessions, such as those in Antalya, technical staff of Oil by knowing how to present each player in physically. And this thanks GPSports device showing the exact mileage running, speed and heart rate during training players or matches. Worth over 70,000 euros, the system is innovative, but very few teams in League One and allow it to acţionize due to high prices. To be monitored, players wear a special vest and back, the size and shape of a mobile phone are secure GPSports device.

The dealing with the interpretation and centralizing all the data is Nacho Martinez, one’s physical preparatory Oil . 

“This revolutionary system helps us to see exactly how to prepare footballers. We know how to run one or the other in training or matches, that speed was and that was the heartbeat. Normally, our players go through training sessions, on average, 6-7 km, and at similar distance ranges between 9 and 12 km, depending on how each plays ” explained Nacho.

From the Feb. 5, 2014 edition of the Canberra Times

SPORTS REPORTER AT THE CANBERRA TIMES

A Super Bowl, a rugby league World Cup, an NRL premiership and a Spanish championship – a small Canberra company tucked away in Fyshwick can lay claim to all four titles in the last year as it positions itself as a leader in global positioning system technology.

And its GPS devices are becoming so advanced they can not only monitor real-time speed, distance and heart rates, they can also record big hits, an imbalance in someone’s gait and also predict when an athlete is at risk of injury.

GPSports was born in Canberra in 2000 and expanded into the American market 12 months ago. The new Super Bowl champions, the Seattle Seahawks, are the first NFL team the company has worked with. They probably will not be the last.

Two weeks after the Seahawks knocked the San Francisco 49ers out of the play-off race, the 49ers emailed GPSports to ask about its tracking systems.

Super Rugby grand finalists the ACT Brumbies, the Wallabies, Spanish soccer champion Barcelona, NRL club Manly and the AFL’s Geelong are other teams using their devices.

The brainchild of former track-and-field-coach Adrian Faccioni and David Cameron, who built GPS devices for the Australian Defence Force, GPSports has 12 employees, including former Brumbies high-performance manager Rod Lindsell, and designs and builds its own devices and then creates the software needed to analyse and display the data.

Coaches can pull out their smartphones and check how hard each of their players is working at any point during a session. Monitoring workloads during training allows a team’s managers to ensure the players are putting in the right amount of effort in the right kinds of training.

GPSports international sales manager Damien Hawes will meet the Seahawks next week to discuss their experience of using the units for a year. It culminated in an emphatic 43-8 thumping of the Denver Broncos on Sunday, New York time.

”We entered the US market last year and our first and only NFL client happened to be the Seattle Seahawks, who started using our technology from March 2013,” Hawes said on Tuesday. ”They hadn’t used any comprehensive form of tracking technology during their training sessions, ever.

”The first thing they tried to do was [work out if] the demands of their training sessions meet the demands of the games?

”By marrying those two together, they reduced the injury rates of their players this season and increased the fitness levels specific to the demands of the game.”

The devices have gone beyond being a simple distance, speed and heart-rate monitors.

Now they can determine whether an athlete is favouring one leg, and the impact of any hits. They can also sound alarms that help prevent damage to hamstrings or calf muscles.

On the company’s to-do list is syncing the data with video footage. That way coaches can hone in on a player’s mistakes during a game and determine whether fatigue has played a part.

”We’re actually at the point now where, if a high-velocity, injury-risk alert goes off, then that can indicate the player might get a hamstring strain,” Hawes said. ”And if a sprint or acceleration risk-alert goes off, then the player’s susceptible to a calf, groin or quad strain.

”So the alerts that appear in our software can localise the muscle group that’s fatigued and is potentially likely to get injured.”

Hawes said Australia was leading the way in sports science and that scientists in Britain and Europe were examining how things were being done here. He said US sports teams were almost a decade behind those in Australia in the use of GPS devices.
