With more than 25 years of player personnel experience, I’ve seen the growing amount of data that coaches and recruiters must review. It’s been impossible to compile and analyze this data quickly and decisively…until now.
Atlanta, GA. (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Today, Competitive Sports Analysis (CSA), leading provider of predictive sports analytics, unveiled scoutPRO® Coaching Edition, which is the only scouting and game planning system that combines historical tendencies and subjective experience to identify and prioritize the strengths and weaknesses of recruits, a football team and game day opponents. The announcement coincides with the American Football Coaches Association’s (AFCA) annual convention in Indianapolis.
CSA’s team of data analysts and sports professionals created scoutPRO Coaching using the same patented software technology that has propelled its well-known fantasy sports tools’ accuracy and popularity the past three years.
scoutPRO Coaching includes the following two modules to meet the needs of every college football program:
- Precision Playbook - Helps coaches prepare for the gridiron by automating game preparation, which reduces time and expense. Precision Playbook allows coaches to define skills, rules and parameters for building game plans and automatically adjust game plans based on injuries, substitutions and weather. Further, the system allows coaches to analyze players and identify situation specific plays based on opponent strengths and weaknesses.
- SMARTscout - Helps college coaches find best “fit” recruits by allowing you to rate recruits on individual skill levels, track and integrate available player data, and more. Moreover, SMARTscout gives coaches the ability to customize skills and importance of skills based on their schemes and systems.
“With more than 25 years of player personnel experience, I’ve seen the growing amount of data that coaches and recruiters must review,” said Mike Hagen, former NFL executive and scout who serves as strategic advisor for CSA. “It’s been impossible to compile and analyze this data quickly and decisively…until now. As we enter the off-season, we’re excited to put scoutPRO predictive data in the hands of coaches and recruiters – making the game more competitive and efficient.”
“CSA’s vision has always been that insightful data and analytics provide a competitive advantage for sports teams,” said Diane Bloodworth, founder and CEO of CSA. “We believe that sports teams will continue to increase their usage of predictive data in selecting players and game planning. With the launch of scoutPRO Coaching, we’re furthering our goal to provide valuable, predictive data to help teams win.”
The new tool is now publicly available for collegiate football coaches with an NFL module coming spring of 2014. Plans for basketball and baseball versions are currently in development. For more information or to request a quote, click here.
