Impacts

Measure the impacts on your board aboard during play. How big was that hit? Measure impacts up to 20G and take time to rest your body and recover before returning to the game.

Data Showcase - Cambridge RUFC

PitcheroGPS is the preferred choice of Cambridge RUFC as they seek to elevate performance levels, drive competition and help players understand their potential.

For Richie Williams, Director of Rugby, the power of data made a difference straight away: ‘We immediately saw the benefits, not only in terms of injury prevention but being able to manage the training loads of the players.’

Once the rugby club understood the science behind what individuals were capable of, it allowed coaches and players to aim higher:

‘We found a direct correlation with performance levels the players were hitting in terms of high speed distances they were covering. They were then able to benchmark against players in similar positions.’

A benefit of PitcheroGPS is how fast everyone can see their stats: ‘We can get them (the players) the data immediately after the session. They can access it on their smartphones. It gives them a guide on how hard they’ve been working.’

But does the investment pay off? For Cambridge RUFC, it’s added a new dimension and raised their game:

‘We’ve found using the PitcheroGPS has been massively beneficial for us as a club. It’s cost effective compared to other brands that are currently available. It’s something I would recommend to any clubs at our level, the National Leagues below and community clubs to purchase.’

Carrick Blake, Head Analyst at Cambridge RUFC, added: ‘The PitcheroGPS app and all the processes that are built in already are fantastic. It encourages competition and we’re a competitive bunch as a high-flying team. If they’re competing over high speeds then we’re doing our job right.’

Health & Wellbeing

Concussion

Concussion is a reality in all contact and non-contact sports. By tracking the impact felt by the body you can make a more accurate review as to the severity of the impact.

Fatigue

Tracking your performance over time will highlight if your body is suffering from fatigue. Lower distances or speeds, few accelerations and more time in lower speed zones could all suggest your body is suffering from fatigue and needs to be rested.

Injury

If a body is fatigue sit is more likely to suffer from injuries which mean time away from training and playing. Players maximise performance when their bodies are healthy and rested.
