Franklin, TN - Tennessee Soccer Club (TSC) proudly announces a partnership with STATSports as “The Official GPS Tracking Technology of U.S. Soccer and the Tennessee Soccer Club.”
STATSports is the world’s leading GPS monitoring device, providing technology across the USMNT, USWNT, all youth USSF youth national teams, NWSL and elite programs such as Brazil, Germany, Arsenal, Manchester United, Man City, and top MLS and NCAA programs.
The APEX Athlete Series tracking device, worn in a vest on the player’s back, is used during practices, game days and off-season, to track performance such as: Max Speed, Total Distance, Left/Right Step Balance, Activity Heat Map and provides the ability to compare benchmark data from USSF national teams and top Division I programs. Data can even be live-tracked during the training or match right in the mobile app.
"We are thrilled to partner with STATSports," said TSC Executive Director Stuart Brown. "This partnership is the first step in our club's commitment to leveraging the use of technology to best meet the developmental and health and wellness needs of our players. By partnering with a world leader in wearable performance tracking, we will help drive and improve player environments within our club."
In the next couple of weeks TSC and STATSports will begin to roll out APEX Athlete units for players to “product test.” After each session, the data is downloaded within seconds to a mobile app paired with the player’s smartphone to capture everything they did during that session.
STATSports is the world’s leading provider of GPS player tracking and analysis solutions for elite sports teams and is worn by athletes during practice games and matches to collect intricate data on their performance and physical wellbeing. It has offices in Chicago and its headquarters are in Newry in Northern Ireland.
