Player Assessment and Technology

I recently attended a great sport science symposium hosted by my colleague, Seattle Sounders Fitness Coach Dave Tenney, and much of the discussion was on player analytics and monitoring physiological load for performance and injury prevention. It made me think of this video on basketball. Most of the video is clearly smoke and mirrors to sell Sparq but Nike but it highlights some of the technology that is being used in team sports. I’ll have more on the Sounders Science weekend in some future posts.
