Stay Connected While Your Child Chases Their Dreams Abroad
Posted August 23rd, 2021
Having your son or daughter make the bold step to study and train abroad is an exciting time for parents. By using the 360Player platform, International Development Academy ensures the best and most comprehensive connection between parent and athlete and allows for a seamless communication pathway on all fronts. So what exactly does the 360Player platform do?
There are three main components in the parent account, a comprehensive Calendar, Video Analytics and a Chat Feature that enable direct communication with the player and coaching staff through the app.
We asked Director of Coaching, Peter Bradely, how IDA incorporates the 360 Player App into everyday life, for its parents and athletes.
How does IDA use 360Player to keep parents informed about their athlete’s progress?
“Parents can access the 360Player platform to view training, see performances, and understand a player’s schedule of meetings and match events within the calendar, providing a great roadmap for the approach IDA takes in comprehensive player development. Additionally, parents have the ability to use the video analytics software to keep up to date with all training sessions, match analysis, and view education videos provided by IDA staff, in order to keep the parent informed on the progress of their athlete.”
Is the athlete’s entire day-to-day schedule posted on 360Player?
“Absolutely! The calendar is a comprehensive view of a player’s daily, weekly, and monthly schedule, so you know what their entire schedule looks like. 360player allows for a very detailed breakdown of team training, athletic performance, meetings, workshops, matches, & special events.”
Can parents view their athlete’s games, practices, or training sessions?
“Parents have the ability to view all posted video content from matches and training sessions,while also viewing coaches analysis through video analytics. By viewing training events on the calendar, parents may also keep up with the team training curriculum, to gain an understanding of the training methodology at IDA and how it’s implemented with the team.”
How does IDA incorporate the app in its programs to enhance best player development?
“360player has become an integral part of the development environment for the IDA coaching staff. From planning sessions, to analyzing video, it has become key to providing an individual development plan within our team setting. Being able to use the calendar function, and the detail that it allows, keeps everyone aligned and it also allows for smooth and effortless communication between players, coaches, and parents.”
How does 360Player aid as a recruiting tool for athletes to submit to college coaches?
“The video analytics, feedback from IDA coaches, and additional statistical analysis within the app, make it a great tool for recruitment. Players can share their profile, edit and send videos, provide stats and video analytics on their play to interested college coaches (they’d like to play for.)”
