Athletic Science began working with softball athletes, parents and youth coaches this month. An elite coach helped an injured athlete learn proper form from experienced coaches by using online sports coaching with video analysis. With 30 million children and teenagers participating in organized sports the CDC has been tracking some alarming trends.
This winter in New England a concerned youth coach and parent took advantage of online sports coaching to help his daughter. The injury had this U14 softball pitcher sidelined since the summer of 2012. Although the athlete had been working with a local private coach since she started pitching, her pitching form and overuse were causing enough pain to sideline her from playing the sport she loves. The athlete submitted a video online lesson to a professional coach from North Carolina to diagnose particular motion patterns that might be causing pain. Although the video submitted by the New England athlete lasted only 60 seconds, the elite coach responded with a 27 minute video breakdown of every detail of her pitching motion including slow motion analysis and telestration. With the elite coaches’ professional experience and side by side analysis he was able to visually demonstrate the root causes of the problem. Now the athlete has all the tools to prepare for her season. Her online coach will also be available during the season to make sure her adjustments are on track.
Besides diagnosing the problem the Athletic Science elite coaches can recommend drills to improve practice time. All purchased drills remain in an athletes profile and are accessible from any device. Portable drills make it easy for athletes to travel with their online sports coach. Understanding the importance of safe practice, Athletic Science has the only online platform that connects athletes, parents and coaches with qualified instruction.
The Athletic Science website is designed with social features to encourage communication with online coaches, private coaches, youth coaches, parents and teammates. Any member of the “invite only social group” can gain access to online lessons. This important social feature keeps athletes safe by opening up lines of communication.
