The ultimate link between the art and science of coaching.

HOCKEY

The STATSports APEX / Viper system incorporates the pod with accompanying software to deliver the most accurate and reliable tool in collecting and measuring both training and match-day data for each player. The APEX / Viper System is regarded as the worlds leading player performance analysis system available on the market. STATSports allows coaches to manage squad training loads from pre-season right through the entire season to effectively manage player conditioning levels and preventing injuries.

The best use STATSports

Viper is used by the best teams in the world including 17 Premier League teams along with Barcelona, Juventus and many more.

Monitor

Our System allows for unobtrusive feedback on individual player & team performance in each session, all season long.

Live Streaming

Our Live Streaming APP allows coaches to monitor players in real-time and adjust training to meet the objectives of each individual session.

METABOLIC METRICS

Also included as primary metrics within our software are the innovative metabolic metrics that give an accurate reflection of energy expenditure through the collective analysis of constant speed activity combined with acceleration and deceleration activity. The comparison of energy expenditure within training drills and that of games can give coaches a valuable insight into whether or not the intensity of training drills is similar to game intensity levels.

The metabolic metrics:

Average Metabolic Power

Energy Expenditure

High Metabolic Load Distance

Equivalent Metabolic Distance

The above listed High Metabolic Load Distance (HMLD) is measured in metres and it includes both High Speed Running distance and also distance covered while accelerating or decelerating above 2m/s². Players who don’t get into high speed running zones because of covering short, sharp distances are given credit in their HML score because the intensity of the work can be just as great.

Dynamic Stress Load

(DSL) is a STATSports metric that allows us track the external load placed on the player and is presented in the APEX / Viper software as a weighted score. It is a total of the weighted impacts that the player experiences during a session or game. Every player has different bio-mechanics, injury history and fatigue levels which all play a role in determining how a player deals with the external load. In a similar fashion the STATSports system also helps monitor the internal load of the players using the heart rate variables such as max and average heart rate for a session, heart rate exertion and heart rate variability.
