What our clients say about us
Based on what we learned, we re-shaped everything we do to measure individual performances and the information we feedback to our players. We continue to work with Olly through CoachTech on a number of projects.
Thomaz also does a great job of scouting upcoming opponents, as well as analyzing potential recruits. In the craziness of the college soccer schedule (games, travel, school, etc) and lack of built-in periodization within the compact college calendar, we have been able to do a lot of “learning and understanding” off our legs, and our guys have took a vested interested in understanding what is being asked of them individually and collectively for our team and themselves to be successful
Billy Colton contacted CoachTech in April of 2019, prior to the NPSL summer season kicking off. As the assistant coach for Erie Commodores, he wanted to work on the feedback he was giving to his players, especially in the attacking phase of the game. We helped him to look at theory behind decision making in the attacking third, using data from Major League Soccer, the English Premier League and the USL. Together, we build a system of feedback for his players and began to work with them individually on their cross and shot locations.
Following the success of this, Billy chose to use CoachTech when he was appointed Head Coach of NCAA D2 school, Gannon University. In Billy’s 1st season as Head Coach, Gannon improved on the previous years 10 wins, to win 18/21 games, breaking many school records along the way. Summaries of this work can be found below.
Oliver came and presented to our player before the season and discussed the types of chances we were going to try and create in attack. He used examples of working with top international players worth millions of dollars, and tied it in with video and data to support his advice. The players were blown away and it’s hard to argue when you see pro’s worth millions doing the same thing you’re asking the college players to do.
The buy-in we got from our group as a result was brilliant and it wasn’t long till players were discussing our attacking targets in the locker room post-game, which is exactly what we wanted.
