Volleyball Australia builds its capabilities in Performance Analysis

-

 

A prestigious list of presenters gathered in Melbourne's Etihad Stadium today at the 2015 Sports Analytics Innovation Summit hosted by Innovation Enterprise. The room was filled with experts in the analytics field including Volleyball Australia representatives Giorgio Poetto , Simon Naismith , Joshua Slack and Lauren Soderberg.

The conference will continue over 2 days with over 26 presenters offering up the latest information on a broad range of topics including Athlete Load monitoring techniques, latest data collection technologies, data based performance analysis and injury prevention. Day 1 provided insight into the pitfalls, challenges and successes that other sporting organisations have experienced implementing analytics from a ground up approach.  

Some of the key communication points emphasised Analytics being the 'Science of Winning', utilising specific evidence based data with a responsibility to contribute to both performance enhancement and a measurable accountability in injury prevention. 

Lauren Soderberg shared her thoughts:

" I think the course has been extremely beneficial for me so far. Even though the conference is directed more towards performance analysis specialists and not coaching personnel, I have found particular benefit in an in-depth understanding of different views on athlete monitoring systems, load monitoring and injury prevention, which I think will be able to have an immediate effect on my athletes' performances now and into the future. Insight into larger organisational challenges and problem solving strategies has provided me with fresh insight into my own processes and hearing how performance analysis staff are servicing coaching staff to best assist with winning oriented goals is something that I’m looking forward to further discussion on as the conference continues on day 2. "
