WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Culture Enhancement

Culture can be defined in many ways, but players doing what they are supposed to be doing, when they are supposed to be, is a vital indicator of a strong culture. Being on time is the key to operating efficiently. We track and measure that for you. XA Score platform captures and scores this so you have a specific measure of your program’s culture and immediate feedback on concerns.

What else drives culture? Genuine connection between your coaches and student-athletes. This is paramount! Using XA Score technology we help you to have the conversations you didn’t know you needed to have. You get real-time, pinpoint data on who you need to have a conversation with. You are alerted each day with specific concerns so you can pull an student-athlete aside and have an idea why. You are not guessing, or trying to get a read on body language as to who needs you the most. This quickly improves genuine connection on your team, builds trust and impacts your culture.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Peer Accountability

The unique Score component let’s your student-athletes know where they stand at all times. Not only that, they are seeing how their score impacts their position score and overall team score. This is where the leaders on your team are able to encourage, or demand consistency and accountability to the little things with their teammates. This is the “Iron Sharpens Iron” environment successful programs create.

The difference between player-led teams over coach-led teams is significant. The best teams are player-led as teammates are accountable to each other with mutual respect. The best coaches develop this on their team each season. XA Score creates an environment of accountability within your program to push individual student-athletes to consistently Outdo Themselves. The truest way to team success is for its individuals to maximize their own potential.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Automated Check-ins

Student-athletes attendance check-ins are streamlined and automated. Student-athletes check-in with their phone when they arrive, using one of two mechanisms, Weight Check-in or Daily Check-in. By accessing our QR code system, the location is specified and time stamped.  Attendance management is a daily challenge. We have flipped attendance issues into an opportunity to drive discipline by scoring the whole process. Attendance checks become automated, accurate, and verified down to the second. You will also have a complete history of each player’s check-ins, easily viewable and managed for purposes such as end of season evaluation meetings.

Upcoming releases will include notifications. Student-athletes are notified when they are 10 min from an expected check-in. Late and missing are notified as well as only those necessary, such as position coach, strength coach, athletic trainer, academic supervisor. No additional messaging or communication required.  All scheduled activities are tracked: team meetings, classes, training room, nutrition station, study table, community service, etc.


WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Save Program Manpower

This is your program’s Xtra Assistant! XA Score saves program manpower. In our first trial school, University at Buffalo, we saved a strength coach 3-4 hours per week. We both know, the best programs are the most efficient. You can significantly reduce data entry while enhancing the use of all your data. No more double entry and repurposing lists and numbers, while wondering if it was done correctly. Done once and right, XA Score immediately improves accuracy while saving your program time. With all your data centralized for analysis and reporting, you’ll operate more efficiently.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Gauge Daily Readiness

Each day, your student athletes check-in on the weight scale and then answer the Sport Readiness questions, you receive immediate feedback and are in tune with how your team overall is doing, as well as specific concerns with individuals. You can have the heartbeat of your team in less than 10 seconds. Not only do you know who has and has not reported on time, your staff can gauge individually or as a whole, how ready your team is for the day. In seconds, each player can answer a few simple questions and be off to the next task. If the team is to report by 7:00 am, you know by 7:01 am if your team’s soreness is up 20%.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Awareness & Impact Habits

When a student-athlete's aggregated XA Score is drilled down, they become more aware of the impact of their daily habits such as sleep, nutrition, hydration and recovery. Players are encouraged to make better decisions away from their coaches as they see the control they have in all these areas and the impact they have on their daily scores. You as a coach, better connected and in tune with your athletes, can also have a significant impact on coaching and educating better habits. XA Score is impacting your student-athletes ability to reach their full potential.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Body Weight Management & Analytics

Athletics teams gain so many benefits from tracking daily body weight. Logging, tracking, entering and analyzing this data takes a ton of time. We automated this and supercharged your use of the data with not only our Score, but detailed algorithms that drive the score itself. You are able to set body weight goals at any level and rate or use our system to appropriately guide a player towards their Goal Playing Weight. The system devises its own proprietary daily goal for individuals you want to gain, maintain or lose weight. Their score adjusts each day, keeping weight top of mind.

Now, combine all that information together and you meet a critical need for coaches. Data is centralized and easy to access. A head coach can see a composite of their entire program, and each position coach can see a composite of their overall position group’s score. No more calling up countless spreadsheets and lists to see results of something compiled last night or yesterday. You see it all right now, knowing exactly where you stand in that very moment. Each decision made, can be compared against real data in any, or every area of your student-athlete's life.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Program Wide

As a head coach, you make the decision to start your program activity 1 hour later, two days a week. You know you cannot control what your student-athletes are doing from 10:00 pm to 12:00 am every night, but you do know if they don’t have to get up until 6:30 am instead of 5:30 am, virtually everyone will be in bed sleeping. Across your team of 100 players, getting 2 hours of extra sleep each week, that is 200 program hours of more sleep. Now mark that decision point and evaluate your XA Scores going forward. Look at performance and/or results on the field, in the weight room, in the classroom, in the training room, etc., all from the moment you made the decision. Immediate real-time feedback to validate decisions or make adjustments.

Your student-athletes evaluate their own decisions the same way. What if every student-athlete could see their overall performance number in real time, as well as their score in every measured activity they engage and how that score stack ranks against the rest of the team?  They can see right now how their efforts and results in all metrics tracked and charted compare to the last time completed.  Not only do they have a clear understanding of their specific targets, but they can tell day over day if they are truly getting 1% better. When a student-athlete makes a conscious decision to alter their nutrition, they can see for themselves the positive results across the board.
