Being athletically active can at times be challenging. Specific movements, like swinging the golf club or releasing the bow when doing archery, are very complex. During training the movements should be optimized as much as possible. One of the best tools a coach can implement, and watch together with the athlete, is a video of the actual movements that are being performed.
“Coach’s Eye” uses the iPhone or iPad camera to record a video of the movements that need to be evaluated. The video may be watched in slow motion to quickly focus on the areas that need to be improved. But that’s not all. Coaches may “draw” in the video. This can consist of placing lines in the video, circle details or do simple freehand drawings. It makes it really easy to illustrate that someone doesn’t stand up straight enough while doing a golf stroke, or that the angle of the arms isn’t right.
Videos may be saved, placed in the Dropbox or posted right from within the app on YouTube.
