Zepp Coaches Center includes practice plans, hitting tips & drills, and in-depth analytics
SAN FRANCISCO – April 22, 2015 – Zepp understands that behind every great player is a great coach, and that is the cornerstone of the new Zepp Coaches Center. As the leader in sports technology, Zepp has teamed up with baseball and softball experts like Major League hitting coach John Mallee, University of Florida Head Coach Tim Walton, and softball legend Sue Enquist, to create this exciting new resource for coaches.
Available for free at zepp.com, the Zepp Coaches Center allows coaches at all levels to get into the minds and playbooks of the experts by providing an entire library of instructional content including over sixty how-to videos, proven tips and drills, fun challenges, and practice plans. Also available is a specially-priced product bundle designed exclusively for coaches to outfit their teams.
“I am constantly learning to be a better teacher and coach. Using Zepp has helped me coach hitting from a completely different perspective,” says Walton. “It’s changing the way our players are building their swings.”
With Zepp, coaches learn to harness the power of video, 3D, and instant actionable data to inspire and improve their team’s performance. Coaches can add players to their roster from within the app. Then, they simply attach the Zepp sensor to the baseball or softball bat to begin collecting data. Through the app, the coach will be able to analyze each player’s swing anytime, anywhere, and customize a practice routine based on Zepp’s insights and lab reports.
“How many times are you coaching, and you’re telling your player ‘I think this is happening?’ You’re watching 2D video and you’re really not getting a clear picture of what’s going on. With the Zepp sensor, we are able to see the metrics, and understand what’s happening, why it’s happening, and how we are going to change it,” says Mallee. “I am thrilled to use Zepp with my own players, and I’m excited to share it with all of the other coaches looking to support, engage, motivate, and improve their team.”
Zepp has partnered with the leading organizations in baseball and softball including: Major League Baseball Players Association, Positive Coaching Alliance, Perfect Game, Premier Girls Fastpitch, OnDeck, and others. From the majors to youth leagues, Zepp is committed to helping coaches take their players to the next level.
