Wasps Academy continues partnership with AnalysisPro
Date: 17 Oct 2017
Wasps Academy’s Analysis and Coaching Staff will continue to use AnalysisPro this season as their chosen analysis software provider.
Nacsport provides a valuable resource to support players’ individual development through detailed analysis of video. It facilitates greater interaction between players and coaches and stimulates collective and individual reflection which is a critical stage of the learning process.
Last season, Wasps Academy formed an official partnership with AnalysisPro and used the Nacsport video analysis software along with the online platform MyTPE, which made a huge difference to the Academy’s teams.
Wasps Academy Performance Analyst Cassian Graham explains why the partnership has been hugely beneficial: “AnalysisPro have been immensely helpful to the Academy in delivering feedback to the players. In using the software they provide such as Nacsport, we’ve been able to process footage to allow us to deliver individual footage to players, specific clips of team execution and create presentations to the players so that we can review film and help develop them further.
“The Academy has also found great use for AnalysisPro’s online analysis platform MyTPE. MyTPE has provided the Academy staff with a simple and effective way of communicating with the players outside of a Wasps’ training camp. MyTPE allows us to send PDFs displaying team structure and videos of match footage and elite comparisons.
"The players and coaches can also discuss any files uploaded to the site using the comment section below the file to help provide clarity to the players. This has helped further progress the players as they learn more about what is expected from Wasps and develop as rugby players on and off the pitch.”
Josh Bryan from Analysis Pro said: “We are delighted to continue our role as the chosen analysis software provider for the Wasps Academy. Last year, the Academy used our tools excellently to enhance player development and understanding. We are sure that the same benefits will be had by the team this year, with Cassian providing the video analysis and facilitating the team in understanding what their videos and performances are revealing.
"We strongly feel that video analysis can play a pivotal role in the development of a player’s understanding of the game and their own performance. With Wasps Academy using Nacsport to analyse their videos and share the details in an interactive online platform, MyTPE, we look forward to the whole team continuing to embrace these workflows and reap the many benefits.”
