Most college coaches want to coach their athletes quickly, effectively and accurately.
Yet, communicating with them in a way that meets those three important goals is challenging, to say the least.
Well for a few college coaches – especially those who look to technology for newer coaching tools – they’ve uncovered an easy-to-use app that is making coaching athletes quick, effective and accurate.
And the best part? It costs about the same as a cup of your favorite overpriced morning coffee.
It’s the cool new Dartfish Express app for smartphones and tablets, and it’s being used to provide instant coaching feedback to college athletes through video. And after the instant feedback on the field, court, track or pool, coaches can upload that video to their own Dartfish.tv site for their individual team members to view and learn from after hours.
All of the app’s features was one of the reason Apple chose to highlight it as part of their “Life on iPad” series, and it’s ease of use is the reason that so many college coaches are using Dartfish Express to begin the year.
“I really like to use it at practice, right at the venue, especially when we’re focusing on technique because you’re able to give immediate visual feedback,” says John Kenneson, Associate Head Coach for Track and Field at Texas Christian University, who has become a fan of the Dartfish technology. “But the beauty of Dartfish Express is being able to have our athletes be able to view it later back at their house or dorm room on our Dartfish.tv site.”
“Any kind of training and coaching that we’re trying to give them that can be made visual is really important to me.”
The app is so simple to use that most coaches are finding themselves able to use it just a few minutes after downloading it.
