Forbes, in one of their articles,  mentioned that the analytics market for sports is expected to reach $4 billion by 2022. That is how big the demand for sports analytics will be by the end of 2022. Every professional sportsman and sports woman knows the importance of analytics in the game and its influence in sports is growing steadily. Sports analytics today is a much wider spectrum than old school metrics and game performance.  

Specifically, Soccer analytics is a very important area that coaches are beginning to focus on. Its role in  developing players by focusing on metrics  to grow their potential is a trend that is catching on in clubs and academies the world over.  

Player Analysis

The skill  and engagement levels of a player can be monitored by analysing the players past performances. Apart from the sports angle, the level of enthusiasm can be measured by analysing how much time a player would take to complete their tasks and assigned engagements in comparison with the rest of the team. 

A coach who has access to uploaded video footage of a particular player can analyse the footage to assess his players. This helps coaches train players and create  individual action plans for continuous improvement. This is one area Koach can help with and with consistent data driven feedback coaches can help players understand their strengths and work on their weaknesses.  

Pre-Match Analysis

Pre match analysis is an important area in soccer where data from recent match analysis, formations, goals scored can be used to formulate a strategy for the next upcoming match.  Players’ current  form  including information on their injuries and medical conditions can be efficiently displayed in a dashboard for quick and easy decision making. Once the coach has the player evaluations and action plans in place, the coach can build sessions via Aktive’s session builder and plan for future matches in detail. This feature provides the coach with the  options to change formations and create their starting lineup.

Post-Match Analysis 

The Aktive  platform provides different types of reports generated via the data collected by the coaches during the match. it provides basic information such as match attendance, player ratings, scores, used and unused substitutes, red/yellow cards collected and total minutes played by each player just to name a few. This data is also aggregated over an entire season to give the club or academy a full 360 degree view of the team. 

Koach with Aktive is an Edutainment platform that allows clubs and academies conduct remote training sessions and automates the administrative aspects of running a club or academy. It is in essence a platform that has been built with user experience as its core concern to ensure players of all ages stay engaged as life-long enthusiasts of the game..
