Who uses paper anymore? You’d be surprised (lots of people). We’ve spoken to coaches and statisticians for youth sporting teams and for adult amateur sporting teams – many of them still use paper to record their scores and to analyse their sporting statistics. Sometimes what gets recorded on paper is then duplicated onto a summary report and stored in a folder…on more paper. It can be easy and familiar to go ‘old school’, we get it. But not many people have the time anymore. We’re all so busy.
Wikepedia.org says“…Sports analytics are a collection of relevant, historical statistics that when properly applied can provide a competitive advantage to a team or individual. Through the collection and analysis (sic) of these data, sports analytics inform players, coaches and other staff in order to facilitate decision making both during and prior to sporting events.”
Using the BSA platform, you can generate insight reports on any of your statistics entered. And the best part is, the tedious collation and aggregation of your data is done for you. Any user can call up graphs that show trends in performance, historical records of injury events, wellness patterns or synergy between certain players over a period of time. It’s up to you how you label and use your events.
You can create as many custom labels as you like. Want to record how many times your team captain wears their giraffe socks on windy days? Want to record how many egg and lettuce sandwiches your forwards eat after indoor training sessions? Go for it. We don’t judge. But we may be able to tell you if the giraffe socks are linked to your number of dropped passes…just saying.
By using an online tool to collect and store your statistics, you get the benefit of being able to call up those numbers anywhere, at any time, using whichever device you choose. Your statistics become tidy and portable.
