Texas A&M University Women’s Soccer Improve Player Development with Match Analysis Technology

Cutting Edge Tools Deliver Video and Data Self Analysis

The Aggies women's soccer team represents Texas A&M University in NCAA Division 1 college soccer in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The 2014 season was the best in the program history where the Aggies won the SEC League title, SEC Tournament title and reached the College Cup semi-final. This was followed by another successful campaign in 2015 when they were runners up in the SEC Soccer Tournament and quarter-finalists in the NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Championship.

Head Coach of 23 years G.Guerrieri and Associate Head Coach Phil Stephenson have been meticulously planning to ensure the team is fully prepared for their first competitive match of their 2016 campaign. As one of the elite sides in the nation the Aggies coaching staff pride themselves on player development, with a strong emphasis placed on video and data analysis to maximize player performance. For this they will once again be using the state of the art product suite from California-based Match Analysis.

“Match Analysis’ products have become a key component of the Aggies soccer program contributing to the success the team has enjoyed. The modern game demands our players to be both technically and tactically sound. With Match Analysis we have the most advanced technology available for analyzing our performances,” said Phil Stephenson, Texas A&M University Women’s Soccer Associate Head Coach. “We use the data and video analysis tools week in week out to help evaluate our team and individual performances and communicate with our players to help them maximize performance and drive results. In addition, the ability to import clips into PowerPoint or other presentations is really valuable for coaching or team education.”

The Aggie players and coaches take advantage of Match Analysis’s data and technology in a variety of ways.

Using Tango Online players are involved with interactive sessions to analyze their own performance. They are given homework with questions and topics that require accessing Tango Online to find answers. Examples include players sourcing how many successful passes they made, how many balls they played into the box, how many times they won or lost possession. Questions are followed up with players to find answers and solutions, balancing positives and negative examples to improve performance.

Mambo Studio is used for weekly video sessions by position (defenders, midfielders, and forwards) to review tactical performances by each line. Creating videos to emphasize the style of play they want and highlighting instructional implementation is a key part of pre-season preparation and ongoing analysis.

With Tango ToGo video clips are sent directly to a player’s iPhone or iPad with questions or comments to solicit feedback. “Players at every level enjoy watching themselves do great things. Tango ToGo provides the perfect, quick and easy platform to enhance player confidence” said Stephenson.

Tango ToGo and Mambo Studio are also used to promote players to the next level by sending video highlights and information to National and Professional team coaches to consider. This continues to prove successful with several seniors in Pro camps to start the year, players drafted by NWSL clubs and Aggie junior Stephanie Malherbe representing the South African Olympic Team in their preparation tour for Rio.

To provide continuous corner-to-corner video of every inch of the field the Aggies have a K2 Panoramic Video camera system installed at their Ellis Field stadium. Panoramic video delivers a unique view for their in-depth positional and team shape analysis along with the availability of player tracking data and advanced fitness reports.

“Texas A&M are pioneers in the use of technology to gain a competitive edge. They were early adopters who saw the benefit of incorporating video and data analysis into their weekly preparation,” said Stephen Hamilton, Match Analysis Director of Marketing and Business Development. “The coaches use the technology to help identify opportunities, and educate their players to provide them the best opportunity to be successful.”
