California Magic SC Chooses Trace to Provide Player Development Resources Within the Club
ORINDA, CA + AUSTIN, TX (Aug 6, 2021) – California Magic Soccer Club and Trace Soccer are eager to announce their partnership for the 2021-22 season. The club will be outfitting all U13 and older teams with the Trace game film system. These teams will utilize the Trace platform to automatically film and edit games, create shareable recruiting profiles with Trace iD, and receive custom Trace Workshops for both players and coaches.
“Families will be able to watch any game (home or away) that they cannot attend or simply want to relive – and these games will be easily shareable with family, friends, and college coaches.“-Haris Obic, Director of Coaching at Cal Magic SC
California Magic SC’s mission is to educate, inspire, and empower the potential for excellence through a transformational soccer experience. They believe in a holistic approach to sport education where all domains are constantly influencing performance, and believe in maximizing childhood experience to ensure time spent with Magic is time families and kids can look back with pride and joy!
“We’re excited to partner with Trace this season,” says Haris Obic, Director of Coaching at Cal Magic SC. “Players will have the opportunity to be more involved in their own development by engaging with personalized content. Our coaching staff (head coach and technical staff) will be able to receive high quality, automatically edited game film which will be used to evaluate progress and establish new benchmarks. Families will be able to watch any game (home or away) that they cannot attend or simply want to relive – and these games will be easily shareable with family, friends, and college coaches.”
As this last year has shown, video analysis plays a critical role in player development. Trace is on a mission to empower coaches with a valuable tool without increasing the work on their end. Trace’s AI camera automatically edits and delivers personalized moment playlists to each player’s inbox after every game, requiring no extra editing time by coaches, parents, or club staff.
For California Magic players who are serious about playing at the college level, Trace iD, Trace’s own recruiting platform, gives players the power to save, share, and spotlight their best moments. Simply select your best match moments, add them to your Trace iD, and seamlessly share the playlist link with college coaches across the country. It’s how one ECNL player managed to secure a spot on a D1 College Soccer team amidst the pandemic.
California Magic Soccer Club joins over 200 other clubs and organizations that have partnered with Trace for adoption within their organization.
