VERT Essential Package
Track your Team with only 2 VERTs
Athlete health and wellness are top of mind as we plan for return to play, but access to resources and training tools are limited due to budget constraints. To help coaches and athletes we’ve put together our VERT ESSENTIAL package. This package allows more programs to easily access technologies specifically designed to help objectively return our athletes to play in a safe and effective manner.
Everyone is dealing with the challenges of having deconditioned athletes and progressing their training strategically on the court is absolutely critical to ensuring they stay healthy and strong throughout the season. In no sport is this easier to monitor than Volleyball.
How to use as few as 2 VERT sensors to bring your team back safely:
Given, in most cases, all outsides will go through a similar practice plan to start the season, as will middles, here’s how to utilize the platform for effective return to play:
1 sensor on an outside
1 sensor on a middle
Grow training load strategically by position group (if possible 10-15% week over week)
Change sensor to other athletes day-to-day to monitor landing impacts and flag higher injury risk athletes
If an athlete or two show to be at higher risk for injury, monitor those athletes more often
Jump numbers will be representative of each position group for simple practice planning
Additional sensors and profiles can be purchased at the normal rate ($149.99 per sensor and $100 per profile), but the VERT Essential Package will continue through September 2020.
During the season sensors can be used for return from injury athletes for more strict jump counts
Used by OVER 450 Collegiate & Professional Programs
Full Team Analytics
Monitor jump performance, landing impact, total workload and more.
Stats Center visually shows player optimal training zone (OTZ)
Stats Center prescribes training loads by team, position or individual to ensure your athletes are in their OTZ
Closely monitor athletes coming back from injury.
Drills and assessments: Measure athlete explosiveness, readiness, fatigue, asymmetry.
The best way to determine how much your athletes should be training on a given practice, is to look back to the days and weeks past at how much training each athlete has completed. STATS CENTER automates this process by using an Acute to Chronic workload ratio to help mitigate injury risk and optimize performance by keeping your players in their optimal training zones
What is Acute to Chronic Workload?
This is a ratio that is calculated by comparing short-term and long-term workloads (7 days to 28 days). This offers a guide to specifically what a low, medium and high training day should look like, as well as a simple means of bringing players back from injury at the proper rate.
Available to VERT Team System Basic and Advanced clients, the new VERT Stats Center is the coach’s VERT data hub. Sort key metrics such as jump count, landing impact, workload and more by team, position or individual player. Trend metrics over desired time frames and gain clearer insights designed to help guide training load for a healthier, more physically prepared team.
