Camp/Clinic Description

Thursday, December 12, 6:00-8:00 pm – Performance Analysis Workshop added to National Coaches Forum schedule!

Lead educators for this workshop will be Phil Edwards, Senior Manager of Coaching & Performance and Chris Fry, Performance Analyst for the Women’s National Team.

The USA Field Hockey Performance Analysis Workshop returns in 2019 free for National Coaches Forum attendees! The workshop will provide attendees with insight into some of the latest developments in field hockey performance analysis along with practical examples of analysis workflows that can be applied in their own environment to enhance performance. The workshop is not software-specific and delegates will leave with impactful analysis tools and ideas even if their current “software” consists of pen and paper.
