I’m one of the 22 million coaches in North America. I noticed a couple years ago that evaluations done by 99% of sports organizations across the globe still use pen and paper to perform evaluations of their athletes. Doing athlete evaluations this way is very ineffective and makes it tough to do anything worthwhile with the data collected. Some take it to the next level (like I initially did) which is to make a spreadsheet to run numbers to be able to do more with the data but this does not get around a VERY painful aspect of a huge amount of data entry (and the errors that go with it)…..so I made www.skillshark.net .
Skillshark.net the first affordable tool of it’s kind that allows player info to be entered by coaches from any sport onto the website and then allow many evaluators to use a mobile app to gather the information. Once complete, data is uploaded to the website with a touch of a button and reports are instantly available for coaches to make decisions from.
The app is downloadable from the App Store for iPhones or iPads for free and from Google Play Store for Android devices.
For only $99 US/year on the website, coaches can perform evaluations for an:
- unlimited number of athletes
- unlimited number of groups
- unlimited reports
- unlimited video storage
- unlimited evaluators for free!!
It’s already being used for baseball, hockey, softball, basketball, soccer, golf, cricket, ringette, alpine skiing, snowboarding, tennis and other sports……it can be customized to measure anything you can think of.
Most minor sports bodies cannot afford the computer software packages that cost $500-3000 per year, so I wanted this to be an affordable solution. Most of these other solutions still do not even allow evaluators the ability to gather data on mobile devices.
