Football Academy NJ and Trace Begin Club Partnership

Football Academy NJ Chooses Trace to Provide Club with Personalized Video Analysis Platform

NEWARK, NJ + AUSTIN, TX (May 5th, 2021) – Football Academy NJ (FA-NJ) and Trace Soccer are eager to announce their newly formed club partnership. The club initially tested Trace’s 30 Day Elite Trial with their 06 girls team, and will now be outfitting an additional 10 teams with the Trace game film system this fall. These teams will utilize the Trace platform to automatically film and edit games, be able to create shareable recruiting profiles with Trace iD, and receive custom content and continuing education for both players and coaches with Trace Workshops .

“For our teams to receive individual highlight playlists and performance analytics so quickly after a game helps with player feedback and improvement, as well as coach education and development.”

Mark Cassidy, Club Director at The Football Academy NJ

The Football Academy NJ aims to offer the highest level of developmental training in a professional and safe environment, and promotes wellness, health and fitness through soccer programming.

“We are excited to partner with Trace to provide our teams and players with personalized game footage,” says Mark Cassidy, Club Director at FA-NJ. “For our teams to receive individual highlight playlists and performance analytics so quickly after a game helps with player feedback and improvement, as well as coach education and development. Our older players will also have the benefit of using Trace iD as a recruiting tool since their individual footage can be sent directly to college coaches. 

As part of our continued commitment to our club’s players, families and members, Trace will be included in the club fees and will not be an additional cost to parents after registration.”

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 FA-NJ 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.

The Football Academy NJ  joins over 70 other clubs and organizations that have partnered with Trace for large scale adoption within their organization.

"Amazing technology that saves us time. We don't have to edit video and create clips ourself. No one has time for that. The "almost immediate" feedback is priceless. The players and the parents love to watch and analyze. Coach is able to give feedback more accurately."
