The game of football is evolving, and coaches play a key role as they continually adapt to these changes to ensure that athletes and their on-field protection are a focus for football programs. This duty is important to the fabric and future of the game so that kids can continue to have a positive football experience.
For many programs, that duty manifests itself in improving blocking and tackling techniques, creating smarter practice plans and adopting technologically advanced equipment.
A technology designed to help coaches and athletic training staffs attain these goals is Riddell’s InSite Training Tool. Used by more than 1,000 college, high school and youth programs across the U.S. and Canada, the tool has helped thousands of athletes improve how they play the game and evolve how coaches teach their players.
InSite Training Tool, or ITT, is football’s leading head impact monitoring system. ITT collects and analyzes on-field head impacts, while also alerting sideline staff to an atypical impact event. ITT includes an easy-to-use web-based platform that utilizes team impact data to build individualized impact profiles. ITT also includes an advanced practice planning tool and provides a data-driven approach to managing athletes by identifying training opportunities based on head impact data.
