COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - SBG Sports Software is excited to announce a new multi-year partnership with USA Field Hockey to provide the U.S. Women’s National Team with Focus, SBG’s next generation video analysis system.

The USWNT’s new coaching team, headed by Anthony Farry, is using Focus on the touchline for recording and instant replay of all available angles in matches and training sessions. With access to every camera angle, staff can tag events and review key moments on a shared timeline, building playlists which can be shared with the athletes at halftime. 

“Focus’ collaborative workflow is particularly useful during these times when our staffing numbers are having to be restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” commented Farry. “Being able to share clips and notes between staff and players is vital to keeping our training philosophy and game play consistent, as well as our players engaged and injury free.”

“We’re delighted to be working closely with such an experienced coaching team as Anthony and Greg (Drake) and look forward to supporting US Hockey in their competitions and on the international stage,” added Joe Schrimpl, SBG Sports Software Inc.’s Vice President of Business Development. 

Focus is used by competitors, officials and organizations in a wide range of sports to record multiple angles for live review on tablets, laptops and workstations. Focus is intuitive, interactive and optimized for touch control for pitch-side, handheld use as well as providing comprehensive data collection and real-time analysis. Post session, additional data and video can be incorporated and distributed via storage devices or published to the Hub, SBG’s cloud-based sharing platform.
