Team Coach’s Eye has utilized the mobile app over the past few months during training to gain an edge over their competition and will continue to use Coach’s Eye throughout the winter sports season. Coach’s Eye provides on the spot video analysis that allows athletes and coaches to instantly record and analyze video right on a mobile device. This amplifies learning by instantly reviewing key moments with precise video scrubbing and slow-motion video playback.
“Coach’s Eye allows me to review every jump with my coach and make adjustments in real time, I no longer have to wait until the end of the day to make improvements and that makes a big impact on my training.” ~ Billy Demong
Coach’s Eye expands on traditional training methods as well. The app creates video analysis that can be distributed in a variety of ways- coaches can share feedback directly with an athlete or make it publicly available for team members to view. Coaches can also simplify remote training by importing other Coach’s Eye videos with the tap of a button.
“Coach’s Eye is used by most, if not all, freestyle skiing coaches at the World Cup level. It has truly changed the way I work with my coach. We are using Coach’s Eye all day, every day.” ~ Patrick Deneen
Simple and powerful, Coach’s Eye is the number one tool athletes need to perform at the highest level. Stay tuned for more to come from TechSmith and Team Coach’s Eye.
