American football is considered one of the most traumatic sports in which strength must go hand in hand with speed, endurance and excellent physical preparation. A huge number of sprints, tackling and running mean that players perform a wide variety of work on the pitch. The Sonda Sports system allows you to measure it, analyze it and draw simple conclusions that will help increase your performance, adjust training load and reduce the risk of injury.
Our devices (GPS vests, sports trackers and heart rate monitors) allow you to precisely measure the most important physical parameters, such as total distance, heart rate and speed thresholds, sprints, metabolic power or Player Load.
Use the computing power of the cloud and analyze key data on a professional analytical platform. Track 100+ metrics and 30 key stats, compare players, manage your team and plan training sessions.
You don't need to install any software to use our system. You log in to the application via our website and gain constant access to data thanks to the internet cloud. All you need is a laptop or any mobile device and WiFi.
The Sonda Sports system allows you to analyze over 100 metrics and 30 important physical parameters. Among the dozens of variables, it contains the key factors for American football: distance covered per minute, distance covered at high intensity, sprints, accelerations and decelerations, metabolic power, repeated high-intensity effort and Player Load.
High Metabolic Load Distance
Heart Rate Thresholds
Repeated High Intenisty Efforts
High Intensity Distance
In American Football there is a difference in the performance of offensive and defensive players which means they should work on different elements in motor training. Thanks to GPS vests and trackers we can monitor important physical parameters.
“Due to the specificity of our sport, we focus on 4 values: Max Speed, Player Load, Total Distance and Sprint Distance. We mainly look at Player Load to see how loaded a given player is. We focus especially on offensive positions, so that the training and match load is optimal for the player's participation in the game plan” says Jakub Samel, the head coach of Panthers Wroclaw. “The results we obtain with the Sonda Sports system confirm the difference between training and match pace. Thanks to the collected data, we know how to modify training sessions so we can recreate the match conditions in its best way. We can also check whether a given player was properly loaded during the session and divide the number of repetitions among athletes”.
The analysis of these data helps to plan microcycles, evaluate the effectiveness of training plans, draw conclusions, eliminate errors and choose the optimal load. GPS also helps shape individual motor traits for a given position, track current physical condition of the players, manage fatigue and avoid overload, which is the most common cause of soft tissue injuries.
