The Sports Office has further enhanced its features which enables users to drive evidence-based, technical and physical improvements in their players and athletes.
This Benchmarking feature is a powerful data analytics function that harnesses the cloud computing nature of our systems. It allows users to compare performance metrics and physical characteristics. This can be within age groups and across a range of other desired categories.
Comparing player performances can easily be completed in an unlimited number of physical and technical tests. These tests are customizable to benchmark athletes in any required field.
The Sports Office’s Andy Gorski commented: “We believe our benchmarking functionality is unrivaled. It offers elite sports teams and organizations a unique opportunity to gain powerful, game-changing insights.
“It gives them the opportunity to use robust evidence to drive and deliver technical and physical improvements in their players and athletes. We look forward to working with existing and new clients to help them gain the most from this powerful element to our systems.”
How it works:
Data for an Under 18s player could be compared or ‘benchmarked’ against every player that a club holds records for. Significantly, the benchmarking function allows for the normalization of data from various sources. This allows clubs to analyze a player’s testing, physical or performance data against several parameters, including cohort or maturity status.
One possible example of usage would be for a young player to complete a series of annual tests. Several of our current clients already use our growth and maturation measurements to benchmark players. Their results are used to compare to other mature players.
National Governing Bodies using The Sports Office with a ‘Parent/Child’ relationship can hugely benefit from benchmarking results against any other data.
Throughout long-term athlete development, staff can use the Benchmarking process to optimize progress and outcomes. This includes both junior development and performance structures, such as Academies and representative teams. The function can also enhance personalized athlete development plans.
The Benchmarking functionality is available within The Sports Office systems. To find out more about how your organization can benefit from Benchmarking, contact us now.
