Slow Motion Video/Video Streaming
There are many benefits of having a video readily available when it comes to sport coaching.
- Athletes and coaches do not need to be in the same location to have a relationship
- A coach can provide support from any location during competition
- Game strategies, injury concerns and nutritional needs can all be discussed
- A coach can quickly record their athlete in action and have it played back in slow motion which enables both parties to see what’s happening and enable the coach to point out corrections
- Enhances fan interaction
Everyday more and more applications are being created to help us navigate and interact with the world. Mobile applications for coaching are no exception and there are many you can access effortlessly and with minimal cost.
