London FA teams up with In-Play Sports

The latest partnership will give London coaches access to CPD events and video analysis materials.

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with In-Play Sports to offer exciting opportunities for all London FA affiliated clubs and coaches.

The partnership will see a number of CPD and learning events hosted throughout the year, as well as exclusive discounted access to In-Play Online, In-Play's cloud-based video analysis solution.

In-Play Online is currently used by sports coaches and teams all the way from the grassroots to elite level, to allow coaches to easily analyse their matches and sessions, stay organised and collaborate with other team members.

One crucial use of In-Play Online will be to facilitate the relationship between coaches and their mentors. Feedback and collaboration are key parts of In-Play Online with coaches having the ability to add comments, voice notes and drawings to properly visualise their coaching.

London FA Coaching Development Officer, Neil Fowkes, said: "After being involved in Coach Development for nearly two decades now and with the evolving game and variety of digital resources available, the London FA have been looking for a viable digital software to help our member clubs, coaches, FA Mentors and our coach development groups the ability to get more direct insight, shape and develop their players and themselves. The In-Play Online tool is perfect, versatile and provides analysis in various formats and I am very excited with this partnership." 

Director of In-Play Sports, Chris Gill, added: "I'm really looking forward to developing this relationship and I think we have picked a great group of people to do this with. Neil and his colleagues have been so receptive to this, and I think that is testament to their forward-thinking approach to modern day coaching.

"Since opening In-Play Online out to individual users, it is great to see so many coaches jump on board and take their analysis to the next level."

To launch the partnership, there will be an online webinar for affiliated coaches on the 30th November, covering the basics of analysis, and how coaches can better incorporate it into their clubs. This will also include a giveaway to a number of lucky coaches.
