5 Reasons why Trace is the Best Video Camera to Record Soccer Games for Coaches

Imagine a world where players never have to guess what they did right or wrong in a game again. Coaches can now use video technology to help athletes visualize performances from every angle, improving their skills while reducing injury risk. Video analysis is no longer reserved for professionals. It’s beginning to make its way into amateur athletics, and that’s a good thing – for athletes, parents, and specifically coaches.
As a coach, you’re always looking for an edge over the competition. That’s why Trace is such a valuable tool – it gives you information you can use to make better decisions and improve your team. Here are five reasons why Trace is perfect for coaches:

  1. Easy to Use
  2. Provides detailed feedback
  3. Identifies and corrects error quickly
  4. Collects and stores every game and player data
  5. Automatic updates


Easy setup and upload process

Recording and editing video has historically been a hairy process. With Trace, even first-time coaches can get up and running quickly without sacrificing quality. Trace makes it easy to review game film, identify key plays, and develop strategies for future success with automated editing. Not only is Trace a perfect entry-level video solution, but also for those that have been around the block before. The analysis allows all coaches to easily scan, sort, and share individual or team moments. Think of all the hours that could be spent editing and uploading raw video files! Now, video analysis doesn’t have to be a time-consuming chore; it can be an integral part of your coaching routine.

Detailed feedback on athlete performance

In today’s world of instant gratification, people want feedback on their performance as soon as possible. Trace provides just that for athletes. Trace is a tool that provides visual and statistical feedback on an athlete’s performance. It’s hassle-free and gives athletes the information they need to improve their game. The video is automatically analyzed and the turnaround time is quick, proving a valuable tool for athletes who want to improve and coaches who want to give their athletes the best possible chance to win.

Identifies and corrects errors quickly

Trace is the only platform that automatically identifies and tags players, so you can easily navigate to individual players moments without any advance work or manual tagging. By automating the video process, Trace makes it easy for coaches to identify and correct errors quickly. Coaches can spend less of their time on the treacherous video process and more on each individual and the team. As a result, athletes can see what occurred, why it happened, and how they can make immediate adjustments to their game. Using Trace consistently with your players will allow you to effectively plan practices and identify areas of improvement to maximize the team’s potential.

Collects and stores player data with ease

Trace’s platform makes it easy to collect and store player data. This allows coaches and scouts to quickly reference and easily identify trends and patterns in player performance. Not only does Trace keep all of your past games, but each individual’s performance metrics as well – max speed, distance covered, minutes played, and several other tools are available to reference and maximize stamina and output. Whether you’re looking to track your team throughout the past five games, or the entire season, Trace is an essential tool for long-term player development.

Automatic software updates

Trace is the perfect tool for coaching teams of all levels because it’s constantly evolving and improving. The video analysis software is continuously updated with new features and functionality and will only improve. Plus, the Trace subscription covers all hardware, software, and cloud storage to create a true all-in-one video solution. So whether you’re coaching recreationally or an upper-level, recruiting-aged team, you’ll always have the latest and greatest.

Ultimately, coaches have a lot on their plate. They need to worry about the game, their players, and now they also have to worry about filming the games and collecting data. That’s why Trace is perfect for coaches – it’s easy to use, instant feedback helps with correcting errors during the game, data’s collected and stored easily, and constant updates help keep coaches up-to-date on the innovation. If you’re a coach who wants to make your life a little bit easier, it’s time to check it out.
