FC Durham & Toronto Skillz talk CoachCam

Earlier this summer CoachCam announced a working partnership with Soccer Academy Alliance Canada. Soccer Academy Alliance Canada. SAAC was established in 2005, with a vision to develop world class soccer players in Canada on a continual and systematic basis by providing its members with the best-in-class training, facilities and competition. Membership has grown from 25 teams and just under 400 players to over 150 teams and 2,500 players in 2016. In the past nine years, Academy graduates have gone on to professional careers, trials overseas, NCAA scholarships and Canadian Universities. SAAC boasts some of the most experienced and educated coaches in the country, with over 75 professionally licensed coaches currently employed by its membership.

Since July, some of the academies within the membership have had the opportunity to use the app in their day-to-day soccer activities.

Rocky Sasitharan, FC Durham’s Girls Director of Player Development has been working with the CoachCam app for over a month and spoke very highly of the different options within the application. “I will say the different illustration options that can be incorporated in the footage is top class. Lots of different animations and lines really covers all the bases in that respect and allows the user to really be able to show what they want to show using the specific animation.”

Meanwhile, Toronto Skillz Academy Director, Jake Doodnath has been using CoachCam as an aid to help his players make better decisions on the ball.

“We have been using the Coach Cam software as a visual training aid for our players. This tool allows us to provide positive feedback and show the player different options that could have been chosen in a particular situation. Another benefit has been sharing information within our coaching staff, the videos allow coaches to share thoughts and also discuss corrections made to players during training.”

CoachCam continue to enjoy working with SAAC Soccer and throughout the course of the next year we have a series of blogs coming your way and watch out for their #PhotoMonday promotion on social media.
