Sterling, VA (September 5, 2016) – VERT, leaders in wearable sports technology announced NVVA Volleyball as the newest member of their VERT club program.
As the Official Wearable Technology of USA Volleyball, VERT is delivering jump measurements and player load analytics at the elite level with our national teams. NVVA Volleyball is incorporating the same performance training and injury prevention system within their club.
“The coaches at NVVA understand the importance of tracking player load, and the impact real time data can have on a player’s performance,” said David Gil, Sr. Systems Applications Manager at VERT. “With the success we’ve had at the highest levels of the sport, applying wearables to younger athletes is the next step,” said Gil.
NVVA will act as a BETA club partner with VERT with priority access to the most cutting edge technologies and developments. NVVA athletes will be outfitted during training sessions with a VERT jump monitor, a discreet, noninvasive thumb drive wearable that communicates real-time jump statistics to their coaching staff. Through the observance of player load, athletes and coaches alike can reduce the risk of overexertion during practice while providing positive feedback on performance and motivational accomplishments.
“We are excited to use the same technology that USA Volleyball teams use” said Rodrigo Gomes, Club President and CEO. “We believe jump load is an important component to manage injuries at a young age and we are happy that our club is leading the way in our community as well as youth volleyball,” said Gomes.
The data collected during training sessions will be stored for analysis by NVVA coaches, providing information for developing unique training programs and safety protocols as well as motivating players to jump to new levels.
