Performance Analysis is Mainstream on Intercounty Stage
The Hurling and football championships have entered the business end of the season and this weekend it is the clash of Tipperary and Cork play on the main stage and capture everybody’s imagination.
Tipperary & Cork have used Performance Analysis extensively in their march to the penultimate round. Analysis has become as ‘everyday a practice’ as the pre-training warm up.
Performance Analysis, although compared to some other major sports is still relatively in its infancy in Gaelic Games, aside from inter-county competition. However the indications that it is here to stay and flourish. Iconic and respected managers like Jimmy Barry Murphy and Eamon have their methods studied by others – where they go, others follow.
The Trickle-down Effect
The Leinster Intermediate and Munster U21 hurling finals were played in the past few weeks and to further emphasise the ‘trickle-down’ notion both Clare and Kilkenny analysed the games live. Live analysis allows a live video feed directly into the coding screen on laptops for almost instant review of key facets of play – most effective for half time analysis particularly in a game like hurling where everything happens in the flash of eye.
Football Final Four
The final four will face off next weekend in the Football Championship semi-finals. Three of those counties use the technical capabilities of Performance Analysis as cornerstones in preparations. Their foresight has been rewarded.
