The Glenelg Football Club and Lumin Sports have been working with each other for a number of years now to implement the Arc platform to the playing squads, medical departments and coaching staff. We understand to implement our technology within teams you must understand the requirements from all levels, athlete, high performance and coaching for it to truly succeed. With years of coaching, playing and practitioner experience within their ranks, the club has seen tremendous benefit in the implementation of Arc.
We recently spent some time with some members of Glenelg Football Club to understand how they have used the Arc platform over the last few years whilst on their quest for premiership glory.
This case study understands how the club have used Arc and Arc Mobile to streamline and access more valuable data to influence the performance of their athletes.
It's instant data, so for us, as soon as I fill out my application the head of high performance can essentially view how I'm feeling and understanding if I'm reporting any injury or illness flags. From there they can make contact with me and to talk about how we can then monitor my training loads as opposed to rolling into training and see how you're feeling and potentially risking an injury or not knowing any other factors from my performance or wellbeing reports.
I think the comparison to Arc compared to any other platforms we've used is just how we can have so much data on there. Play Wellness, GPS, Team Buildr, Post Game Feedback on there. It's just all in the one spot for us to access, which makes it really good for all the coaches, medical staff and our strength conditioning team, ultimately is keeps everyone on the same page.
One thing that the platform has been really good at is creating a compliant culture. Every week, we barely have anyone miss over two days a week for reporting on the app, so they're good with it. They love it. And they know it's for their benefit, which is often a hard sell with athletes.
For me as the Head Coach the fact that our post-game reports are available with such ease. I found that incredibly useful. Our trademark players and any post game feedback is just so easy to get in there, rather than receiving 20 text messages after a game, players can log this within the app. It has made things so streamlined for our team, I feel as though I able to have more time now to spend with my line coaches rather than sifting through data, comments and reports.
"As a professional cycling team we have athletes based all over the world, and at times we don’t see them in person for several weeks during the season or months during the off season, and even longer in the current climate. The Lumin Arc platform and Phila app allow us to simplify and centralise both qualitative and quantitative data on the athletes and is a valuable tool for us both for helping with team selection decisions, but also for general monitoring of the athletes health and well being."
"Lumin's Arc platform is a game changer in professional cycling. Arc has given our team real insights into the athlete’s performance and how they are feeling and training every day. This has and will continue to improve our decision making in a globally disparate team."
"We are a sport and a team with such a diverse work force which is geographically dispersed. Keeping in touch with each other is critical , every day that a rider is not able to train is a day lost to the team and to the rider. Technology and the partnership with Lumin has enabled us to be more connected than ever in a meaningful and relevant way, keeping us on the road."
"I can comfortably say that Lumin has saved us well over 40% in time spent collecting and preparing data, meaning we can spend more time putting the data to use."
“I am able to see all of my data in real time combined into the one system. Everything from my wellness to my performance data on one system is incredibly powerful. I’m able to connect all of my data to my coaches, performance staff and the people allowing me to be at my best. I’m able to integrate my 3rd party hardware and it will upload instantly to the Arc platform for instant analysis. As an athlete we often are asked to use a variety of different tools to monitor all of our performance metrics, With the Arc Mobile and Arc platforms this now consolidates this monitoring and data collection to very few seamless steps, allowing me to concentrate on racing and performing at my best."
"The Arc and Phila platforms have provided us with the ability to understand and monitor our group more in depth, while reducing our admin time with the data analysis perspective, giving us more time for what matters, developing our players on the field."
"The interactive, user-friendly nature of the platform helps to sort through large data sets to find the relevant information. With around 25-30% reduction in work-force across the league as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been able to maintain the same level of analysis across the 2021 season through the Arc platform."
"Since using Arc by Lumin Sports, we, as a high performance football team have been able to consolidate a-lot of our existing data storage and analysis platforms so that we can now use one central platform throughout the department. Seamless integrations with real time visuals has been at the forefront of my work and where I see the most benefit and potential from the Arc platform from my point of view."
