Twenty-two time national champion Tar Heels adopt ground-breaking mobile technology to evaluate their players.

“This is the future,” said Anson Dorrance, North Carolina women's soccer coach. “SportsBoard’s revolutionary app will help us become more efficient in recruiting future Tar Heels and in making our own players more accountable."

The University of North Carolina Tar Heels Women’s Soccer program, with 22 national championships, is one of the most successful sports programs in history. Now, the defending champion Tar Heels are joining the elite ranks technologically, adopting SportsBoard’s ground-breaking mobile player assessment solution for recruiting, season and camps.

Coach Anson Dorrance, known for being one of the first college coaches to use analytics at practice as a way to challenge and maximize the performance of each player, is impressed that managers can tally stats live using SportsBoard on an iPad and generate efficiency reports within minutes of practice ending.

“This is the future,” Dorrance said. “SportsBoard’s revolutionary app will help us become more efficient in recruiting future Tar Heels and in making our own players more accountable during the season by automating our player efficiency ratings reports.”

Chris Ducar, a long-time assistant and top recruiter for UNC, is amazed by how easily he can use the SportsBoard app on his iPad to evaluate players on the recruiting trail more efficiently.

“Creating audio notes on a player on my iPad is a simple and easy way to record what I’m seeing on the field,” he said. “SportsBoard saves me tons of time when I get home to try and input all of my notes and impressions into our database after a busy weekend on the field. SportsBoard’s integration with ACS makes it totally seamless on the back-end and easy to share the information with our staff and compliance office.”

“Having Anson and his staff adopt our technology for use in recruiting as well as in generating player evals at their summer camps is the highest of compliments,” said Gregg Jacobs, founder of SportsBoard. “SportsBoard is having quite an impact on many sports, as more and more masterful coaches with decades of national and international success discover and integrate SportsBoard’s products into their coaching methodology.”
