Peak Periods &
develop physical demand profiles capable of informing training protocol, and analyze the expression of speed and mechanical loads throughout a match to characterize fatigue. Our aim is to introduce novel, sport specific testing protocols which better reflect on-field match demands.

Team Interaction &
comprehensively analyze team passing networks, identify principal network characteristics, and understand the signiﬁcance of these network measures in elite level team sport. Our ﬁndings suggest a new set of measures to describe and characterize team passing, as well as evaluate team performance, scout for talent and prepare for opposition.

Trajectory Analysis &
Team Movement Dynamics
understand the underlying mechanics of team movement, and characterize patterns for training. We have developed measures for team tempo which demonstrate correlation with team physical performance metrics (such as heart rates, work rates, and high intensity runs), match outcomes and seasonal KPIs.
