Client: St. Helens R.F.C.
System: The Rugby Squad
Matt Daniels, Head of Strength & Conditioning at St Helens Rugby League Club, commented: “Our Sports Office journey has been excellent. Their knowledge of the system, alongside their understanding of our sport, has enabled Sports Office client managers to have a real and meaningful impact on our practices and the successful operation of The Rugby Squad in our organisation. Their system is multi-faceted and caters for every area of my work. It also enables a smooth processing of our analytics.”
St Helens R.F.C. have been using The Sports Office performance management system, The Rugby Squad, for 8 seasons. The system provides a central point for the club’s performance and medical data to be effectively collected and analysed.
The club report that player interaction has also improved due to the nature of The Rugby Squad. Player engagement across the platform includes the input of wellbeing data, game reports and RPE during training.
St Helens also say that access to medical and performance data has improved the effectiveness of their coaching. As a result, they are now able to make better informed decisions relating to training loads and team selection.
“The Rugby Squad has proved to be an invaluable tool for us. To have one centralised system that has information on all players from scholarship to first team allows me to see what has happened and what is going to happen.” – added St Helens CEO, Mike Rush.
