What our clients say
Evaluate preseason preperation
With the support of sponsors and the club SPT was purchased last December. We will use them for the preparation of the new season and in games to improve the players performance.
Especially distance covered, sprints and the intensity metrics are interesting for me in studying improvement. The data tracking on Gametraka and the mobile App is reliable and easy to use.

Manage, Evaluate, Compare
We have been working with SPT for a almost half a year to manage, evaluate and compare the running qualities of our players. We are very happy with the comfort of wearing the vests and units as well as with the visual realisation of the monitored data in Gametraka. We can really recommend the use of Sport Performance Tracking!
Wir arbeiten seit fast einem Jahr mit Sport Performance Tracking zur Steuerung, Einschätzung und zum Vergleich der läuferischen Qualitäten unserer Spieler. Wir sind mit dem Tragekomfort des Trackingsenders und der visuellen Aufbereitung der erfassten Daten sehr zufrieden. Wir können Sport Performance Tracking nur empfehlen!

SPT has helped us play one of our best seasons
We have used SPT for almost a year and are very pleased. It is easy and efficient to
upload the team’s performance data. Each player has their own app where they can monitor their own training.
The players feedback is that the SPT device is small and easy, making it comfortable to wear during workouts. The Gametraka system easily gives me the data I want in a simple way.
We have seen and tried different GPS systems and prefer SPT for the data it provides and its favourable price. It has become an important part of our training to control the load of each individual player.
SPT has helped us make one of our best seasons for many years.

Bring out the teams optimum performance
It is an absolute privilege to use the SPT GPS for Griquas to track performance and manage load in what is a long season for our players. The GPS has provided some insight and trends on our players both individually and in a team context.
It has allowed us to monitor their every on field movement, impact and their capacities. It has guided us in how to individually and collectively come up with programs and systems to bring out the optimum performance of the Griquas. It has allowed us to take our game to a new level massively.

Take your club to the next level
Using SPT GPS Units gave us a huge advantage on our competition and a big part of our premiership success.
It allowed us to work closely with our players on their running and work rate data, monitor work loads during games and training and set up healthy competition between our players which continually drove us to become what we believed to be the fittest and most durable team in the competition.
Tracking our players has taken our clubs professionalism to the next level and we highly recommend SPT if you are looking to take the next step.

Make quick, accurate decisions about how to best manage players
We literally look at 2-3 metrics on a weekly basis and use those simple stats to make decisions for our players. It's simple really; based on what this player is required to do on the weekend (physically) has he/she done too little or too much during training? Without the ability to measure running stats, how on earth would a coach or athlete know whether they're doing too much or too little? SPT gives me, as a coach, the information I need to decide whether we're on track during the training week.

Key to maximising athletic performance
Being such an explosive sport, soccer players are placed under extreme pressure every time they take the field. SPT provides a program to objectively and accurately quantify training and game days at an individual and team level. This system is absolutely key to maximising athletic performance and minimising injury.

A vital training tool
This is our second year using SPT as a vital training and measurement tool for our program on a daily basis. Not only can we track workload, intensity, mileage etc. to increase fitness and to monitor overtraining, we can use it during injury rehabilitation.
No longer do our athletes need to rely on their intrinsic feelings towards injury rehab, we have numbers to prove that they are back and fully fit again.
I 100% believe that without SPT we wouldn’t have made the progress we have over the past 24 months and we are now looking forward to another great season!

In line with international standards
In an effort to improve the quality of training, Alianza Petrolera acquired 25 units [of the SPT device]. This places the club at the forefront of technology in football training.
SPT is a fundamental tool in the training process since it allows us to monitor the daily workloads and thus control the individual impact of the training. The use of the device is very simple, with a very practical and intuitive software that services physical preparation and the prevention of injuries.

A big improvement in match fitness
Currently being the first year of using GPS technology within the club we have seen a big improvement in match fitness, specifically during the closing stages of games. I put this down to a mixture of systemised programming and the accountability of the players to hit their GPS targets during training sessions thanks to the help of SPT. It is exciting to see the direction they are going with further technology enhancements to be made, and look forward to working with them in the future.

An essential tool for managing training load
We capture two lots of data. The first lot we look at is how many kilometres [players] cover at training and after games. We use that data to work out whether we are giving the players too much load or not enough load and try to ensure optimal performance. One of the main reasons we use this data is for our FFA cup games. Sometimes we will play three games in seven days. We want to make sure we get our players’ loading right so they are not at risk of injury for the next week. The other time we use the data is for the players' rehabilitation. We will take them through a 5-stage return-to-training protocol. We capture their data so we can make sure that by stage 5 (before they go back to play) they can cover that 5-6km mark they usually cover at training.

Handy for teams as well as individuals
Our team invested in the GPS technology so we could effectively monitor the intensity and volume of our training sessions throughout the year. The technology allows us to optimize performance-training outcomes for both individuals and the team for the in-season, mid-season and off-season recovery period. For the demands of all field-based sports outdoors, SPT has been fantastic in providing us with simple parameters that are easily communicated to coaches and players alike.

Students compare performance with elite athletes
Our school purchased SPT GPS devices to use within our Physical Education/Health Department. Our students and staff have thoroughly enjoyed using 21st century technology to gain feedback and information, similar to that of professional athletes. Students are motivated to compare their data from previous performances, against other students, and to that of what a professional athlete may achieve. The devices have become a key component of our senior practical lessons, where students have applied results to make links to theory topics and content such as energy systems, fitness (training methods), concepts of physical activity, methods of assessing physical activity, movement analysis and feedback, as well as many others.

Health professionals are onto it, too
Being able to use SPT’s technology has enabled the Physiotherapists at Optimus Health to work closely with our Sports Science Team and help to reduce soft tissue injuries over the 2016/17 season. We have managed to use the GPS data to give feedback to coaches about important data and load variables, including acute-chronic ratios and flagging players when their loads are not in a ‘sweet spot’.

Nothing short of brilliant
We started working with SPT before the start of our 2016/17 football season. We have now been working with them for a full year and during this time, I can confirm that they have been nothing short of brilliant in supporting us at the Academy.

SPT helped me return from injury
I decided to use SPT when I was preparing to return from a lower back injury. I had been trying to get back [into training] for a month or two after I was cleared, but every time I would begin to push myself, I would find that my back would begin to hurt. I realized that I was creating the problems by increasing my workload too soon. I began researching companies and products that would allow me to see the results of my training sessions so that I could use the data to slowly progress back to full fitness. After reading and educating myself on the GPS device that SPT provides, I decided that the features offered at the price point was unmatched. It is extremely user-friendly and a great way to analyze data on a day-to-day basis. I continue to use the device throughout the off-season to monitor the workload and intensity of each training session so I can better take care of my body and prepare properly for the upcoming season.

Metrics for optimum performance
St John’s Old Collegians FC have been using the SPT GPS units to gather training and match data on metres run per minute and high intensity running. This has allowed us to evaluate the quality of our training in relation to the intensities our players experience during games and adjust and improve how we train. We also track total load during the week to manage our yearly macro cycle, enabling players to peak for important games and minimise significant increases in load, which may lead to a greater risk of injuries. Our players have really enjoyed seeing and using their data as motivation to improve.

Reliable, compact and easy to use
Derry City have been using SPT for nearly 2 years now. The units are lightweight yet durable and the GameTraka system is user-friendly. SPT has offered us great support and are constantly evolving, allowing us to have input into the system improvements.

Insightful data for anyone wanting to see an improvement
The GPS units have been of a real benefit for us this season with all players in the 1st XVIII wearing them for each game. We have been able to track loads with a focus on sprint efforts and high speed running. It is no coincidence that there has been a strong correlation with work rate and good performance. It has been also interesting looking at the distance covered by our players in comparison to the different size of grounds we play on.
- JAC JOSLIN

Lifted our expectations!
GameTraka has become an essential part of our football program. We dipped our toes in and started with 3 units but demand and interest from the players themselves soon saw us equipping the whole team. They have all both bought into the benefits as individuals but also the data is giving everyone a strong vision of expectations and possibility of results. We have baseline figures for all positions now, expectations of efforts and performance levels that they can often see reflected in actual match results. The extra level of competition has encouraged the team to improve their personal best and prove that they deserve a starting spot. Using SPT has been fun for the players and also invaluable in their progression. Simple to use, reliable and, especially with the new “Report” feature great to share and analyze, I cannot envisage running a competitive team without the units ever again.

Can’t imagine coaching without it
The SPT GPS devices have been an integral part of our club’s training and fitness programming this season. As the strength and conditioning coach of Marcellin Old Collegians Football Club this year, I have personally found the devices to be significantly beneficial. The ability to monitor training and match day running data has allowed us to quantify workloads for both individual players and the team, and therefore use them to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury. The range of variables we can track is great for players to see and allows them to compare their work-rate to teammates playing in similar positions. For a team who finished 1 spot from relegation last year, we have now finished 3rd this year and are playing finals; it would be safe to say that the SPT GPS have considerably aided our improvement.

Works a treat - on and off the field
SPT Sport GPS units have been a great product for our club here at Sorrento FC, W.A Perth. As a club, we brought in these GPS units to help us take the next step in understanding our players training loads and game loads better throughout the season. This season, the data that the GPS units have given us has been incredible - not just in understanding distance covered but by being able to analyse players' speeds (km/hr) and what zones they travel most in during a game. They also help us with the players who are coming back from injury by making sure they get back to their optimal performance before being included in the starting 11 again. We do this by analysing previous data while comparing recent results the player has clocked up. I would recommend this product to any sporting team or individual who wants to understand their performance better, giving them the knowledge on which aspects of their game they may need to improve on.

Getting the most from both long and short term benefits
We have been using the SPT GPS system at Gold Coast City FC for half a season now and it is really starting to provide some valuable information to myself as the head coach, the staff and the players as well. I can use the information to track physical match performance and training loading, which can be helpful in injury prevention. The players also like to be aware of their stats which can only enhance their understanding of what we do and why.

We’ve stopped guessing and started measuring
The response from our student athletes was immediate. As soon as the conditioning group was finished, they all wanted to know their work output, distance and who sprinted the fastest. There is no more hiding behind “effort” because we will now be able to calculate effort. Maximizing effort is key to athletic success. Hopefully, utilizing SPT will allow us to identify specific players’ work volume and how it may affect their work output. If a player work output peaks at the wrong time or is miss calculated, this could lead to injury.

A noticeable increase in performance
The Cranbourne FC in the South East Football Netball League have been using SPT GPS technology for the past three years to monitor and track player movement and intensity. We have been using SPT on our midfielders to help them understand the high-end gut running that is required during their matches. We are able to compare their GPS results to those of a VFL midfielders, this helps the Cranbourne boys set high benchmarks which leads to an increase in performance. We mainly look at the total distance that our midfielders run and the Zone 6 metres that they gain. I would recommend SPT to any football team based on the fact that it is a great tool from an education point of view and it gives the players a good understanding of where they need to be.

Relevant and useful metrics
We bought 10 of the units for our football club here at the Koondrook/Barham Raiders and used them for the first time on Saturday. The results were amazing, not only could we assess total distance, it shows running patterns and top speed. A bonus that comes with the players wearing the GPS units is that they knew they couldn't hide as their running efforts were being recorded.

Helped us up the ladder
As the coach of the Phillip Island Football Club I have found the SPT GPS tracking devices to be an essential tool in our continued improvement. It has enabled us to monitor players' individual progress over our pre-season and now the benefits we are getting on match day data is incredible. It has helped running patterns for players and they are getting the exact feedback they have been craving. We have become the number one defensive side in our competition after sitting at number 8 in the competition last season. I believe the data that we have been able to secure and show our players have been a contributor to this.
