Burlington SC is Leveraging Beyond Pulse Technology for Player and Coach Development
Burlington SC, a leading community sports club in Ontario, has teamed up with Beyond Pulse to revolutionize the way their players train and perform. The U13 and the U17 ODPL Boys players will now be equipped with Beyond Pulse’s innovative Smart Belts, designed to track a range of metrics, including active participation, distance covered, speed, and intensity of play.
The Smart Belts will provide a clear picture of each player's progress and each session’s effectiveness, enabling both players and coaches to analyze, reflect and improve their skills. The tool will also help increase player engagement and retention, by providing simple and intuitive feedback loops that encourage individual and team growth.
Burlington SC has made a pledge to Long Term Player Development (LTPD), a scientific framework for athlete training and growth that takes into account the natural stages of physical, mental, and emotional development in players. LTPD serves as the foundation of the Club, with its principles integrated into the Club's programming and decision-making. By utilizing Beyond Pulse sports technology, Burlington Soccer Club aims to further its mission of holistically nurturing players and providing them with the best possible soccer experience, instilling a lifelong love for the sport.
