Charleston Soccer Club Chooses Trace to Strengthen Club Resources
CHARLESTON, SC + AUSTIN, TX (April 30, 2021) – Charleston Soccer Club (CSC) and Trace Soccer are expanding their partnership for the upcoming 2021 season. Charleston SC will be outfitting all Boys NPL and Girls DPL teams with the Trace game film system. The club will have access to all of Trace’s features, including automatic match filming and editing, personalized moments for each player and Trace iD profiles, along with exclusive content and continuing education for both players and coaches from Trace’s on-staff experts.
“For players and coaches to be able to access personalized, broken down game footage within 24-48 hours of the game’s completion is something unrivaled in the soccer filming market, and is what sets Trace apart from the others.”– Dan Cohen, Boys NPL Director, Charleston SC
Charleston SC aims to provide high-quality soccer education throughout the Charleston community and creates an environment for players that encourages a growth mindset. By partnering with Trace, the club has doubled-down on this commitment.
“Charleston Soccer Club are delighted to be partnering with Trace, to provide high-quality film to all of our Boys NPL and Girls DPL teams,” says Dan Cohen, Boys NPL Director. “Having utilized the Trace system for a few of our teams this past seasonal year, we have found it to be hugely beneficial for both player feedback and improvement, as well as coach education and development.
For players and coaches to be able to access personalized, broken down game footage within 24-48 hours of the game’s completion is something unrivaled in the soccer filming market, and is what sets Trace apart from others. Additionally, adding Trace iD, Trace’s recruiting platform, to our existing partnership with College Fit Finder will only enhance the discoverability and experience for our High School aged players looking to continue their soccer careers into the collegiate level.
As part of our continued commitment to our clubs players, families and members, Trace will be included in the club fees and will not be an additional cost to parents after registration. We look forward to utilizing Trace to its fullest potential for both this year and beyond!”
As this last year has shown, video analysis plays a critical aspect of player development. Trace is on a mission to empower coaches with a valuable tool without increasing the workload 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 CSC 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. See how one ECNL player managed to secure a spot on a D1 College Soccer team with her Trace iD, amidst the pandemic.
By collaborating with Trace, CSC now has the tools to foster development for both players and coaches, increases player retention within the club and provides additional exposure to recruiting-age players, all under one platform.
Charleston Soccer Club joins over 70 other clubs and organizations that have partnered with Trace for large scale adoption within their organization.
