The Sports Office has supplied the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) with an elite cricket performance management system for use across several areas of its operations.
The powerful system will be used to support the delivery of sports medicine, including injury surveillance and monitoring. This puts the ECB alongside other progressive governing bodies, including the RFU, which have focussed resources into areas relating to player welfare and optimising performance. The system enables large volumes of relevant data to be shared quickly and accurately between international team staff and those working at county level.
The Sports Office have also developed a new feature within the elite cricket performance management system which allows ECB administrators to calculate and manage scheduled payments to counties, which are dependent on player appearances in targeted areas of the game. This has streamlined and improved the efficiency of a key process within cricket’s player development strategy. It also provides counties with an important income stream.
“We are delighted to be working with the ECB”, said Neil Holland, Client Manager at The Sports Office.
“We believe the performance management system we have supplied will offer them excellent support for their elite cricket teams and players. They required some unique functionality which were able to create by working to gain an understanding of their specific needs and the demands created by the sport itself.”
Neil Holland added:” We are confident the ECB coaches and staff will find our system to be an excellent foundation for their important and far sighted work in the area of injury surveillance and monitoring.”
Elite cricket performance management system supports key ECB processes
The Sports Office performance management system will also support the ECB to improve important aspects of player registration and team selection. Specifically, the registration element allows counties to search for new players within a central database and then request transfers. ECB officials are able to monitor and sanction this, in real time, which increases the speed and enhances the efficiency of a key process within the sport.
The Sports Office supplies online performance management systems to many elite sporting organisations including professional football clubs, competing in the world’s most high-profile competitions.
Manchester City and Chelsea FC are just two of these, in the Barclay’s Premier League. The Scottish FA have also chosen to use The Sports Office’s software throughout their structures, including for all their national teams and at all seven of their Performance Schools.
Other clients from elite sport include the NHL Hockey franchises, NBA Basketball teams the RFU, Aviva Premiership clubs, clubs in Rugby League’s Super League, elite tennis and professional cycling teams.
