Saracens RFC become club ambassador for Elite Talent ID
Saracens RFC become club ambassador for Elite Talent ID.
Elite Talent ID are proud to announce Saracens RFC as their Ambassador Rugby Union Club.
ETID are the creators of the industry-first, customisable, performance-tracking database, which has been adopted by Saracens for use in its Academy programme.
The ETID software allows Saracens to accurately track every single player performance for unrivalled levels of analysis. The detail from the programme contributes to better decision making for talent identification, performance development, player tracking and contract assessment.
Saracens are widely renowned within sport as leaders in adopting technological developments to advance their best practices and keep driving forwards in this regard.
Saracens Academy Director Don Barrell said:
“Elite Talent ID is the perfect system to help us develop the tracking and long-term knowledge on our players. The structure of the programme along with ETID are really exciting projects that we plan will help us better manage the needs of the young athletes we work with.
We will use ETID to enable our staff to monitor players across the different environments that we work in. With the nature of working with players from the Developing Player Programme and the distances between each centre to have a central database accessible online by all our coaches and then players as well is an invaluable asset for us.
We are looking forward to working with ETID to, ultimately, better connect our pathways and accurately track our players of the future.”
On appointing Saracens RFC as Elite Talent ID’s Ambassador Rugby Union Club Ross Hamilton, Director of ETID said:
“It’s an amazing achievement to have such a successful club in Saracens as our ambassadors.
We have had a long-standing relationship with the club and are delighted that we can help the Academy programme with their player identification and tracking.
It’s a great sign that the Premiership Champions are continually looking to develop their programmes to ensure more and more success in the future and ETID are proud to be a part of that.”
Saracens have wholly adopted ETID across departments including coaching, analysis, strength & conditioning and into the medical team as well.
