Rio Rapids SC and Trace Announce Two Year Club Partnership

Rio Rapids SC Chooses Trace to Provide Club with Personalized Video Analysis Tools

ALBUQUERQUE, NM + AUSTIN, TX (April 23, 2021) – Rio Rapids Soccer Club and Trace Soccer are eager to announce their two year club partnership. The club will be outfitting all Girls Academy and Boys ECNL teams with the Trace game film system. 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 Trace Workshops for both players and coaches.

For all of our groups to be able to get individual highlights and moment so quickly after a game will allow our staff to be able to provide players with more accurate and individualized feedback.”

Chris Brennan, Girls Academy Director

Rio Rapids SC is a premier youth soccer club that has been serving Albuquerque and the surrounding communities since 2001. Their mission is to create and maintain an environment for youth soccer players from diverse backgrounds that encourages and inspires them to reach their full potential both on and off the field.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Trace to provide our teams and players with game video,” says Chris Brennan, Girls Academy Director. “For all of our groups to be able to get individual highlights and moments so quickly after a game will allow our staff to be able to provide players with more accurate and individualized feedback – this will only further enhance the product we are able to provide our players. In addition the ease in which players will be able to create their own highlight reels through Trace, especially for our players working to be recruited to college, will save our families a lot of time, effort and money. We believe that our players and families are going to love working with Trace next season.”

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 Rio Rapids 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.

Rio Rapids Soccer Club joins over 70 other clubs and organizations that have partnered with Trace for large scale adoption within their organization.
