Cal U coach uses video to reinforce success, noting Â?nothing builds confidence quicker than seeing yourself get better.Â?

Arriving at California University of Pennsylvania in July 2000, after just four years, Head Basketball Coach Darcie Vincent has compiled an amazing 112-19 record and possesses an 85% winning percentage. Last year she met her aspirations to coach her new team into a National Championship. Coach Vincent recognizes the necessity of before game preparation, and this year has recruited the Landro Play Analyzer to enhance her game strategy.    

“It’s all about being prepared,” says Vincent, “I put a lot of emphasis on getting ready and doing whatever it takes; video preparation plays a big part.”

Manufactured by IRIS Technologies, the Landro is a digital “play analysis” tool used to study game videos. Though it has been a hit with football coaches, the Landro now offers basketball coaches the same play analysis capabilities as their counterparts. This revolutionary device allows coaches to analyze their plays, study player technique and expose opponent’s tendencies 100 times faster and without the inconvenience associated with video tape. The Landro® system is easy to use and is quickly becoming a fundamental tool in gaming strategy across America.

“Landro gives coaches the opportunity to analyze plays with their team over and over without the miserable hassles of videotape,” explains Jerry Salandro, inventor of the technology and a ‘70’s Cal U grad. “Research shows that repetition is the mother of skill. Landro gives coaches control of their video – it helps them make players smarter faster.”

Since putting the tool to use at Cal U, Coach Vincent agrees. “When I’m reviewing tape with players, seeing it again and again is what makes a difference. With Landro I can do that over and over without ever rewinding, I just hit one button and there it is again and again.” Coach Vincent claims that her players’ preparation habits have changed as well. “Now they’ll pop in on their own for 15 minutes to watch video because they know that in just a couple seconds they can see individual strength, progress, or simply things they want to work on.”

Coaches have remarked that using Landro play analyzer greatly reduces their preparation sessions, enabling them to focus more time on practice. Landro’s time saving abilities are a perfect fit for the fast-paced schedule of the basketball season, assuring preparation time is spent in an exceptional and productive way.

“We have always watched video before practice,” explains Coach Vincent. “For the first time, my players are relating what they saw in the video session to the actual practice session and they can literally see themselves getting better. It’s a huge confidence builder.”
