Lumin Sports has announced Scott Caulfield as its inaugural Director of Strength and Conditioning.
Coach Caulfield brings more than two decades of S&C experience to the team as well as an intricate knowledge of the U.S National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) and developing its emerging talent.
Having held senior positions with the U.S National Strength and Conditioning Association, Colorado College, Dartmouth College and an ongoing role with Norwich University, Caulfield is uniquely positioned to improve Lumin Sports’ athlete data visualisation and management software, Arc Core.
Caulfield said he’s looking forward to helping athletic departments in collegiate, semi-professional and high school settings develop talent performance and wellbeing.
‘’I'm excited to join the Lumin Sports team and help large and small athletic departments maximise their impact on talent development,’’ Coach Caulfield said.
‘’The data insights Arc Core provides help S&C coaches make timely decisions on athlete output and is a key driver in load management and feedback too.
‘’Having previously rolled out and used Arc Core as an S&C coach in a college setting, I’m keen to help others realise the benefits of incorporating an intuitive software platform into their program.
’’CEO of Lumin Sports, Ben Tripodi, said the addition of Caulfield highlights the brand’s commitment to engaging experienced practitioners to help develop products that deliver clear benefits to coaches and athletes.
‘’Our aim is to assist coaches and medical staff cultivate elite performers,’’ Tripodi said.

‘’We look forward to working with Scott to improve the product and our relationships with both clients and stakeholders in the US.’’
Lumin Sports currently works with seven colleges in the United States, defence programs as well as elite and emerging teams in Australia and around the world.
"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."
