Outcome-driven Analytics

Gain confidence. Build trust. Perform.

"The insights we have developed through analytics alongside Kitman Labs have been transformational for our organization. This relationship has given us the ability to overcome emotion through objectivity, to identify at risk players, and to manage our roster through congested periods by enabling us to quantify when to push and when to pull. This allowed us to achieve our best injury record in recent history and be competitive when it mattered most."
Jim Liston
Director of Performance

WHY ANALYTICS

 

The world of high performance is filled with unanswered questions that hold the keys to unlocking the mysteries of performance. Answering all of these questions – what matters, how much, and why –  is impossible without outcome-driven performance, injury-risk and development analytics that quantify the success factors for your goals.

Almost any coach will agree:

Specific aspects of how we perform affect whether we win or lose…

Competitor strengths and weaknesses affect whether we win or lose…

Specific aspects of how we train impact our ability to perform…

...BUT
WHICH
ONES?

How fast and agile players are is important…

How powerful and skillful players are is important…

How recovered players are is important..

...BUT
HOW
IMPORTANT?

KITMAN LABS ANALYTICS OFFERINGS

COMPETITION AND PERFORMANCE

Video analysis has long been the mainstay of assessing in-game performance. 

But an opportunity exists not only to make time spent at the screen more productive and less time intensive, but to provide a whole new level of insight into your team and individual performance.

Kitman Labs Competition and Performance Analytics provide a unique analytical approach to in-game events to determine the contribution of athletes to overall team performance.

Answer Your Questions About Competitive Strategy

INFORM YOUR GAME STRATEGY

  • What does and doesn’t work against your competition?
  • What are our strengths and weaknesses as a team?
  • What are our competitors’ strengths and weaknesses?
  • How do other teams win and lose?

INFORM DEVELOPMENT, RECRUITING, SALARY TALKS

  • Evaluate individual success relative to performance drivers
  • Benchmark individual players to determine strengths and weaknesses
  • Assess which players are over or underperforming relative to their salary

TRAINING AND PREPARATION

Practice does not make perfect, but perfect practice does make perfect. 

We are what we do every day, and so the importance of planning, preparation, and recovery is higher than ever before.

But to do this, we need to know: How should we practice? How should we manage development? 

Kitman Labs Training and Development Analysis starts with your Key Performance Indicators and uncovers the physical traits and load patterns by position that lead to on-field success.

Answer Your Long and Short Term Questions

LONG TERM DEVELOPMENT

  • What physical traits are most important by position?
  • How much of each trait matters?
  • When does more of a trait not lead to more success?
  • Where are my strengths and weaknesses?

SHORT TERM TRAINING

  • What is the right kind of training?
  • How much of each kind of drill should we be doing to optimize success?
  • How much recovery is needed?

SCHEDULING AND LOGISTICS

  • How does travel impact performance?
  • How does schedule congestion impact performance?
  • How do we schedule +/- game day training?

INJURY RISK ANALYTICS

Elite sport is more competitive than ever, with winning and losing decided by the finest of margins. 

This means that keeping your best talent on the field is more important than ever.

Injuries are seen as the blight of sport, and the search to reduce their impact is getting more critical.

But we haven’t been able to quantify the importance of fitness, strength, power, flexibility, etc. to the risk of specific types of injuries until now.

Kitman Labs Injury Risk Analytics quantifies the causes of injuries and identifies the traits and training patterns that build resilience.
