Investing in a SMART Board in the Locker Room Could Have a Winning Impact

Advanced Inc. offers a new interactive coaching tool to help athletes study plays and analyze games

Coaches, put the dry erase markers away and turn your attention to the latest in coaching and learning technology. Multi-purpose SMART Board® interactive whiteboards allow coaches to use video, animation and other tools to help athletes understand plays.

The interactive whiteboards use digital technology, making it possible for coaching staff and players to not only study video, but draw symbols on the screen to animate what plays should have been made and their possible outcomes. SMART Board interactive whiteboards provide a way to take your team’s lifeless playbook and make it real.

This is an effective teaching device in the locker room, as it allows the images to be recorded, making it possible to pause for discussion, change images, fast-forward and rewind for playback. The recorded files can also be transferred to other electronic devices for future reference and viewing. The ease of access to the recorded files can help coaches relay their message clearer and make it easier for players to watch and learn the instructions at their own pace from anywhere, whether it be from home or on the road.

Advanced Inc. has been providing SMART solutions to post-secondary campuses, corporate boardrooms and government offices for 10 years and can now bring the interactive technology to locker rooms. Many NHL, NBA and CFL teams are already using SMART Board interactive whiteboards to discuss and analyze games as a coaching technique. Find out more about how the NHL is using SMART Board interactive whiteboards by visiting Kukla’s Korner. In the world of highly competitive sports, where vast amounts of money are being spent on coaching staffs, scouting and player development, a smart and effective coaching tool can be a huge asset and a wise investment. But, the whiteboards can also be used in any sports facility, from major to minor sporting events.

No matter the level of skill, the SMART Board interactive whiteboards method of instruction gives players the opportunity to learn and grow as a team. Using SMART solutions in the locker rooms can help coaches better inform their players. And smarter players equal winning teams.
