Lackawanna Soccer Partners with iSportsAnalysis
SCRANTON, PA -- Lackawanna College head men's and women's soccer coach Rudy Roediger announced on Tuesday a revolutionary partnership with iSportsAnalysis, a company that provides sport performance analysis software and Global Positioning Systems.
The partnership means that iSportsAnalysis will be the exclusive provider for the Lackawanna College men's and women's soccer programs for Global Positioning Systems and Match Analysis. Both teams will utilize iSportsAnalysis' Sports Performance Analysis video analysis software, along with Player Tracker GPS+, a Global Positioning System.
"We are truly delighted to be the very first team at any level in the USA working with iSportsAnalysis," stated Roediger. "The addition of technology to our program will enhance not only our player development and injury prevention, but aid in our player's preparation for and promotion to four-year colleges and universities and potentially beyond. Truly this puts our programs on the cutting edge like professional and national teams around the world."
Being world leaders in online sports analysis, iSportsAnalysis was developed by world class sports scientists, coaches, trainers, and lecturers to help optimize, maximize, and realize the performance of athletes and teams. The software helps sports clubs, universities and colleges win matches and sporting competitions, aids in player development and helps prevent injuries.
"iSportsAnalysis is proud to be working with college programs which help young players - both in their sports performances and in their understanding of sports analysis. Our ethos has always been to bring performance analysis, match tagging and GPS performance analysis, previously only available to professional teams, to colleges, universities and grassroots clubs. It is our privilege to aid in these areas of player development," said Anadi James Taylor, founder of iSportsAnalysis.
"Our goal is to give our athletes the best possible resources to perform at the highest level," said Joya Whittington, Athletics Director and Head Women's Basketball Coach. "I think this partnership speaks volumes about not only the direction of our soccer programs but athletics at Lackawanna College."
Roediger who has had multiple years of working with match analysis and Global Positioning Systems in the college, professional and international ranks of soccer spoke highly about iSportsAnalysis.
"It was clear from my first conversation with iSportsAnalysis Founder, Anadi James Taylor, that we wanted to be the very first program at any level in the USA to partner with iSportsAnalysis," said Roediger. "While there are other companies out there doing each side of the technology, iSportsAnalysis does both where they are linked together and they are really breaking new ground with both areas."
