Gathering accurate and relevant player information and using this information to enhance performance is one of the goals of any sporting team. Results can be used to view a player's progression over time, see where their strengths and weaknesses lie or as a tool for monitoring health and performance.
In Catapult AMS, the Data Capture section, located in the left-hand menu, can be used to collect information about players in five different areas - coaching, strength and conditioning, physiotherapy, medicine and administration. Customised tests, spanning physical, performance or mental parameters, are configured and placed under one of these headings.
The subheadings form a way of grouping specific tests together, but data for each test is captured the same way regardless of which test players are completing. Under 'Options' in the table of tests, there are methods for capturing data. It can be captured individually, as a bulk capture or imported from an external file.
