New call-to-action


During the presentation, Rob and Ryan spoke about how technology, specifically programming technology, should support the coaching process.  This should occur through a process of periodization, planning, programming, delivery, execution, analyzation and reflection.  Ryan discussed how through each stage of the process, a Major League Baseball team could use technology to efficiently attack each step.  Rob followed on this by utilizing the BridgeTracker app to highlight the versatility in the playlist functionality to deliver dynamic, fluid training experience at scale. 


Rob and Ryan ended the presentation by reminding coaches that technology doesn’t work for the coach immediately, it takes time on the front end to build out the content to truly drive the flexibility and efficiency seen by the athlete and the organization on the back end.
