Case Study South African Netball - Commonwealth Games
Cristy Mullender - Head Analyst
iSportsAnalysis provided video analysis to all 10 teams participating in the Six week Brutal Fruit Netball Premier League tournament.
Our aim was to give all the teams instant access to in-tournament competitive intelligence on both themselves and their opposition.
iSportsAnalysis provided accurate data, quick turnaround times, high quality footage and insightful interactive reports. A specialised assessment platform was created for the umpires to critically assess themselves after each game.
The head umpire was able to rate the competition umpires during the Six week tournament and use this information to decide who were the best umpires to officiate the finals.
Selectors and Coaches
The Netball South African selectors and SPAR Proteas coaches had access to all the games for selection purposes.
Netball South Africa subscribed to iSportsanalysis. All players, coaches, umpires and selectors were loaded onto the iSportsAnalysis platform. Each team was allocated their own private section, as were the empires and the selectors.
The analyst live filmed and coded each game, and uploaded the footage and analysis timeline to the iSportsAnalysis platform immediately after the final whistle blew.Players, coaches, umpires and selectors could sign into their iSportsAnalysis channel using any device, as long as they were connected to the Internet. They had access to the match footage and timelines of coded events. They also had access to the interactive match reports.
No special licenses, software or equipment was needed to view the timelines and reports.
Both the home and opposition matches were analysed, enabling the players and coaches to monitor and improve their performances, and to help see the weaknesses of their opposition teams.
Most importantly, each team had access to their own private Coaches Corner where they were able to make comments on specific clips for instantaneous feedback.
The iSportsAnalysis platform also offers live streaming and live match tagging capabilities as well as advertising space for banner ads for sponsors on the video player

Happy Clients Testimonials
iSportsAnalysis has been instrumental in speeding up our game analysis and making it much more efficient. We are able to produce meaningful data quickly and make our footage and stats reports accessible to players and staff in a faster, more efficient, and easier way. For a club that is part-time and that has limited access time to the players, the fact that the stats are interactive and hosted online means we can connect to our analysis virtually which gives everyone involved in the performance side of the club much better access in really quick time.

I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with iSportsAnalysis. The product suits our needs from both an academic and applied sense. The customer service is outstanding; any issues (and there haven’t been many) have been acted upon without delay to a more than satisfactory conclusion. With the continuing development of the product I can see us using iSportsAnalysis for years to come.

The Gloucester & District Referees Society spent six months searching for an online software platform that would enable us to analyse referee performance as an aid to training and developing our match officials, and found iSportsAnalysis.com to be the perfect fit for our needs. The ability to build our own bespoke code windows within the iSportsAnalysis software, use them to tag elements of a game and then publish them on our own online channel is unique to iSportsAnalysis.com
The Gloucester & District Referees Society - Tony Wakelin
iSportsAnalysis has created a platform which puts the necessary tools in the hands of the players and coaches that actually impacts performance. I can't say enough good things about Anadi Taylor and ISportsAnalysis in providing tangible support and resources that allows our company and the athletes we train to stand out! I work daily with technology companies, wearable devices and communication tools to be able to provide an asset that creates value for the players I train, the coaches I assist and the programs engaging with our services. Test and Train Sports future is heavily reliant on ISportsAnalysis. I have been testing, training and coaching athletes as well as consulting with club teams, high schools, colleges and professional organizations for over 15 years and ISportsAnalysis is the go to partner I need to support our future needs.
Kelly Ahrens - Test and Train Sports
I would just like to extend a huge thank you to iSportAnalysis for the unbelievable assistance their Sports Performance Analysis software offered during the TNL league. NSA (Netball South Africa) has indeed come up with a winning recipe by making iSportsAnalysis accessible to coaches, players and umpires. For someone with limited techno savvy, and with Cristy’s assistance, I was quickly able to master iSportsAnalysis which I used daily. The software was of invaluable assistance especially because of the logistics of my team members living far apart, and their work commitments preventing us from practising during the week. This programme afforded me the opportunity of communicating with the players through "Coaches Corner" giving feedback regarding tactical work for the upcoming matches. Players, through this medium, were able to see which areas of play they need to work on and also to receive individual exercises during the week. iSportsAnalysis is an excellent aid for all passionate coaches and I would definitely recommend it to be used at all tournaments.
Sunbird's Coach - Netball South Africa - Theresa Rossouw
iSportsAnalysis is a huge way forward for any sports team, for the simple fact that you have amazing people like Cristy and Thaka (South African team) making sure we get the best footage after every game. iSportsAnalysis really is enabling me as First Team Coach at Jeppe High School For Boys, to engage with performance analysis on a different level. The editing and exporting of video clips are accurate, fast and of great quality. The attention to detail on the events filter is a dream to work with. The success of the team to date and in future is all down to the amazing expertise and attention to detail that iSportsAnalysis possesses. To have access to this on any laptop and all that is needed is an internet connection, makes your company a cut above the rest. I thank you.
Lance Louw - 1st XI Jeppe High School for Boys Head Hockey Coach
I think iSportsAnalysis is a huge way forward for clubs and teams, and because of the price point in relation to competitors, iSportsAnalysis really is enabling clubs at all levels, including those on smaller budgets, to engage with performance analysis. iSportsAnalysis reduces the need for costly third-party software that charges on a per analyst basis. There is no need for expensive video editing software, or hardware (I spent 1,700 Euros on a laptop I now realise I didn’t need to spend); the editing and exporting video clips is accurate, fast and of great quality.
