California Odyssey SC Chooses Trace to Provide Video Analysis Platform Within Club
CLOVIS, CA + AUSTIN, TX (Jun 15, 2021) – California Odyssey Soccer Club and Trace Soccer are eager to announce their partnership for the 2021-22 season. The club will be outfitting six NPL 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.
“We can immediately see the impact this will make for our players and their college recruiting process. The minimal steps to send instant video to college coaches couldn’t get any easier.”– Edison Gonzalez, Director of Coaching, COSC
California Odyssey SC’s mission is to elevate the passion and spirit of soccer and to help players learn to love and respect the game all while having fun and developing fundamentally sound soccer players who become leaders with character in the future.
“We are excited to be using Trace as our video platform,” says Edison Gonzalez, Boys and Girls Director of Coaching. “This very easy-to-use system will be beneficial for everyone involved in the club. Our players, Coaches, & parents will be better equipped to develop players with this software. We can immediately see the impact this will make for our players and their college recruiting process. The minimal steps to send instant video to college coaches couldn’t get any easier.”
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 Odyssey 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 Odyssey Soccer Club joins over 80 other clubs and organizations that have partnered with Trace for adoption within their organization.
