Encouraging words.

“The coach-player-parent dynamic is critical. Always tell players what you see and what to work on, because feedback is critical.”  –  Ray Ferraro / Coaches Site Conference 2017

Getting known.

We’re in the business of helping players get to know themselves through the eyes of their coaches. And of course we want to get known too! Check us out in the April/May 2017 issue of USA Hockey Magazine.

Want to get better? Evolve.

Spend a few minutes with Glenn, Chris and Greg Collins: accomplished hockey players, coaches, administrators and thinkers who are combining family, fun and feedback to help kids in Rochester NY—and beyond—to build skills, friendships and character traits that’ll take them far.

FEEDBACK

Technologies like video and innovations like PowerPlayer are part of the game now. They help us teach, show kids and their parents how they’re doing and where they fit in, and really help us provide motivation and encouragement. And we see all of these things as ways for us to compete.

Let's check the numbers.

Players love to know how they’re doing, and what they need to do to get better. PowerPlayer delivers comparables that help them understand their personal strengths and challenges relative to their peer groups. That’s feedback they can count on to help drive improvement.

Small things. Big results.

Small-area games deliver more puck touches, more intensity, more teaching moments, and more fun. And a little PowerPlayer feedback goes a long way to help players and parents understand what coaches are seeing. Add them together and see what happens.

Feedback is fuel.

For people who are looking to improve, feedback is critical. Find out how PowerPlayer helped Bantam AAA coach Stan Kondrotas deliver meaningful, constructive feedback to his players while gaining valuable insights that helped him and his fellow coaches better understand their team’s collective strengths and challenges.

What gets measured gets done.

The old mantra may be a bit of a cliché, but it’s essentially true. When it comes to youth hockey, the current measurement system prioritizes games, where effort can produce wins, but it virtually ignores practice, where effort can produce winners. Until now.

Insight is a coaching tool.

By capturing data that helps coaches better understand and teach the athletes they’re working with, PowerPlayer helps build a roadmap for continuous player and team improvement.

This is competitive intelligence.

When it comes to development, the more we know, the better we can be. PowerPlayer delivers insights that help players play and coaches coach.

If it counts, why not count it?

Competitive teams are composed of all kinds of players in the right combinations. PowerPlayer metrics and ratings help players understand where their personal value lies, and help coaches put them in positions to succeed.
