Electronic Performance & Tracking Systems Seminar Attracts Malawi, Zimbabwe Coaches

Electronic Performance & Tracking Systems Seminar Attracts Malawi, Zimbabwe Coaches

Zimbabwean sports scientist Nyasha Charandura conducted an Electronic Performance & Tracking Systems (EPTS) seminar that attracted participants from Zimbabwe and Malawi.

The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) issued a statement this Friday applauding and congratulating him for “successfully” hosting the event. Pindula News presents the statement below: 

Charandura is among four Zimbabweans who were seconded by the association to attend and benefit from electronic performance tracking Training in South Africa in 2018. The other three are Morris Banda, Thomson Matenda and Ngoni Masakadza.

The ETPS seminar facilitated by Charandura from 13 to 14 July is a landmark development in accelerating the adoption of electronic performance tracking systems by local sportspersons and teams in order to optimise team performances.

Charandura has been instrumental in introducing the use of electronic devices to measure players’ performances and effectiveness both at training and during games at national team level.

The presence of local strength and conditioning coaches at the seminar demonstrates that local sports teams are eager to embrace technology to improve their teams’ performances while also protecting their players from risks associated with traditional methods of assessment.

Nyasa Big Bullets head coach Kalisto Pasuwa was among the 30 participants at the two-day seminar. The program combined theory and practical sessions to appraise participants on the importance of, and the actual use of electronic tracking devices to gather data as well as interpret it to improve both the qualitative and quantitative analysis of teams and individuals’ performances.

Other elite coaches who took part in the course are Lizwe Sweswe, Alexio Sigion, Michael Ngore, Mighty Warriors strength and conditioning coach, Brenda Chaora, Ngezi Platinum Stars’ Ndimo Machirenje & Caps United’s Thulani Muzambwa.

ZIFA encourages local sports teams to embrace the use of scientific methods to improve performance and reduce risks associated with overtraining for sportspersons. The use of technology definitely improves the quality of information that coaches can get from matches and training sessions if compared to mere visual observation common in the past.
