Just like hockey players, we’re constantly looking to up our game. We’ve recently updated our mobile reporting and added a few new features. Now if we could just skate like Connor McDavid everything would be awesome.
When players receive private, instructional, and motivational PowerPlayer feedback directly from their coaches, good things happen. They learn faster, and they gain confidence because they understand exactly what coaches are seeing in them and what they need to do to improve. But best of all, they feel respected.
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-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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

As you might have guessed, the post generated a lot of comments.Read Post
