Mr Duncan utilises the third-party analysis viewer feature within the Coach Logic video room often completing match analysis on Nacsport or GameBreaker and then uploading the xml to the video room allowing his school side to skip to relevant clips in the video.
Mr Duncan will also locate the key moments from the match and create video clips on Coach Logic that can be discussed in a collaborative manner in the Activity Feed. Highlighting just the key moments allows players to focus on the critical areas of the match, and crucially, not overload them with information. Focusing on just these key areas has shown to improve player interaction and input.
During our time working with Edinburgh Academy, we’ve completed workshops and also with the Scottish Blue Pups (U16), Mr Duncan’s other side. On the most recent visit Mr Duncan said “Your visit was eye-opening for the players and the coaches and really made us re-think our approach.”
Mr Duncan went on and said input from other sports like Mark Cairns (Coach Logic) from a rugby background and also coaches like Jurgen Klopp in football have provided ideas he’s experimented with in his squad.
