We have updated the function to add a game on the app. The new factility allows you too add players by name, and also add completely new players, opposition and choose your action set. Just like adding a game on the website, but on the app.
Watch a quick video of the new function here. Adding a game on the Statzpack app
The ASL and Statzpack announced a partnership for the league to incorporate Statzpack into their program in 2012. The league managed out of Virginia provides top level clubs in the East coast region a high quality league to showcase both boys and girls supporting collegiate recruitment, incorporating clubs in 7 states including New York, Washington DC and Pennsylvania.
‘We are delighted to start working with Statzpack. Their product will make our game reporting so much easier, and with our mission to promote as many of our players to the college scene, its’ ability to support the job of tracking and recording player performance is unrivalled’.
Kevin added ‘It is rare to find a reporting system that is so easy to use, but our clubs will be able to gather performance specific data to support our player development mission, but also help the teams with the routine administration tasks they have to fulfil’.
Mark Roberts, founder of Statzpack senses this will be the first of many relationships with youth soccer leagues in the US. ‘During the NSCAA convention we had a lot of positive dialogue with both youth and adult soccer leagues. Where we have long heard that there is an ‘App for that’ the exciting development announced by Statzpack is that you are no longer required to be the owner of an iPhone or iPad to track your soccer stats. ‘In addition to the Apple devices, you can now use our product working on over 400 Android smartphones or tablets, for example Samsung, HTC or Toshiba, but better than that you can track your stats at the game using a regular windows PC or a MAC. It means that our system is not just affordable, but also very accessible and still easy to use’. Mark added. This announcement is likely to be one of many in the near future as the company continues to establish further links to leagues and association in the US.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Statzpack, an innovative measurement software that allows coaches and players analyze and improve their soccer performance, recently helped a prestigious private school in Washington, D. C. win its first ISLAA championship in 18 years.
The girls varsity team at Sidwell Friends, a Quaker school located in Bethesda, Md., and Washington, D.C., ended the season with a 7-0-0 record and an overall record of 13-1-1, for a season-high ranking of 28 in the United States. Coach Martin Dell and members of the team recorded every game using Statzpack and found the program helped improve their performance.
“We were very excited to use Statzpack to enhance the girls’ Varsity program and all the games were recorded by one of the two freshmen on the team,” Dell said. “I reviewed the stats at the half-time interval with my assistant coach and then also with the girls to give brief oversight of positives and negatives of the first half and how we could improve in the second half.”
Dell used the Statzpack app on an iPad, but he also tried the new version for home computers and the Android app during the season. He said the app helped him collect data that showed strengths and weaknesses he might have overlooked.
“The data also helped me work with specific development of the girls individually and as a team. I have a very quick forward who was shooting many times a game but her on target percentage was relatively low,” he said. “After sharing the data and my thoughts with the player and the team, we worked on her individual technique and composure and movement in front of goal as well as the team’s penetration in the final third to allow her to be in better scoring positions.”
Off the field, Martin was also able to share the data with players, parents and even local news media automatically with game summary reports sent via email. The data was also used for year-end reports for the school’s athletic director and league meetings.
Statzpack founder Mark Roberts said he was proud of the results.
“Coaches have a lot to think about during a game: their players, the other team, strategy and even the referees,” he said. “Statzpack helps a great coach like Martin Dell focus by making sure he doesn’t lose track of important details. It’s like having an assistant coach with perfect recall. And the team’s record shows the results.”
