Because in sports, as in life, knowledge is power.

By collecting qualitative and quantitative data from hundreds or even thousands of interactions over time—for example, 10 years of hockey with periodic input from 3 or 4 coaches per year—and applying proprietary algorithms, PowerPlayer creates rich, deep and true profiles of individual athletes as they develop. Viewed from an organization or team level, the data also shines a light on the coaches, teams, organizations and governing bodies those athletes are shaped by.

PowerPlayer benefits athletes, coaches and organizations.

Unlike typical top down, closed scouting systems, PowerPlayer data is visible and beneficial to the individuals who are being assessed, and to those assessing them. And with PowerPlayer, the athlete’s data stays and grows with them – from team to team and year to year.

PowerPlayer is a permission-based system.

Because PowerPlayer accounts and the data they contain are controlled by athletes and / or their parents, no coach, scout or organization can access an athlete’s account (to either read or write data) unless granted permission by that athlete or their parent or legal guardian.

“One of the great things about the PowerPlayer program is the continuous feedback from coaches. Players can review game play feedback and compare it to their own assessment of the game. Having an understanding of where they are in the coach’s mind allows the player to target key areas and improve.”
