Adelaide based software company Lumin Sports successfully launches in the United States
Five NCAA intercollegiate programs have signed on to use Lumin Sports’ Arc Core platform
Arc Core will initially be used by more than one-thousand student athletes across baseball, basketball, American football, lacrosse, soccer, hockey and wrestling
U.S colleges and universities increase efforts to address athlete mental wellbeing challenges
Comes on the back of an oversubscribed raise earlier this year to fund the project
Lumin Sports, the Adelaide-based athlete performance and wellbeing software startup, has successfully launched in North America, partnering with five intercollegiate programs in the United States.
California State University, California Institute of Technology, Rice University, Houston Baptist University, and Norwich University are leveraging Lumin Sports’ Arc Core platform across their National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) programs.
Coaches for more than 1,000 athletes playing American football, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, hockey, and wrestling will use Arc Core to collect and analyse performance and wellbeing data, enabling them to make better decisions on athlete management.
Director of Strength and Conditioning at Norwich University, Scott Caulfield, said Arc Core will be a welcome addition to the Cadets’ program.
‘’It will allow us to create a more holistic approach to the way we manage our student athletes and monitor not only their physical output but there mental wellbeing too,’’ Caulfield said.
‘’Our athletes are keen to get their hands on the technology and we as staff know the better data we can collect, the better our decisions can be and the faster we can progress.’
‘’We are excited to be one of the first U.S universities to team up with Lumin Sports and it demonstrates our commitment to do everything we can to help our student-athletes succeed.’’
Following the successful uptake of Lumin Sports’ premier data visualisation and wellbeing software offering, Arc, by AFL, NBL and A-League clubs, Olympic programs, grand-tour cycling teams and defence programs, Arc Core has been designed for semi-professional teams looking to begin or bolster their data driven decision making.
CEO of Lumin Sports, Ben Tripodi, said he’s buoyed by the early adoption of Arc Core in the U.S market.
‘‘I’m elated to see the technology we’ve developed here in Adelaide support emerging talent in the United States,’’ Tripodi said.
‘’We have an opportunity to nurture not only the performance metrics of athletes but their mental wellbeing too and to see Norwich, Cal State, Cal Tech, Rice, and Houston Baptist universities embrace that opportunity is a credit to them and their programs.’’
‘’What we learn from working with these elite organisations will be instrumental in further developing our software to be the best it can.’’
Lumin Sports’ launch in North America follows an oversubscribed $1.15 million capital raise earlier this year to fund the venture.

"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."
