There’s a list of tools and resources posted up on the USA Volleyball blog. Some of the stuff is the sorts of tools we can use on the court and/or should have to be prepared for emergency situations. Some of them I’m sure you’ll have in mind – and potentially already have in your coaching bag – but some might not have occurred to you before. There’s also a list of computer programs and apps. Here’s the latter:
BAM Video Delay – show “mirror like” on the face of the tablet whatever the lens is set to show, but by rubbing your finger on the face of the tablet, you can delay longer or shorter up to 2 minutes. Player does whatever on the court, then before the 15 seconds, or whatever time set amount, goes over to the tablet to see their skill performance. Coach does not need to be present. http://www.orangeqube.com/bustamove/
Dartfish Express – or Ubersense, or Coaches Eye – fast replay video options for in practice feedback, which includes the ability to draw lines/angles, and more to assist.
Scoreboard – Simply turns your tablet into a “flip score” device easy to read from across the court. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scoreboard-free-version/id496758984?mt=8
VBStatsHD – Does all the stats/video synching you want and more – not cheap – but not expensive at $30. For those who want a powerful app. – http://peranasports.com/?portfolio=vbstatshd-demonstration
ACE Stats/Tap Recorder – Low cost fast stat software. http://www.ace4vb.com/smart-device-store.html
I’ve used a couple of these apps myself, and have written about TapRecorder specifically. I’d love to hear your experience with any of the above, or whatever other applications you’ve used.
