Soccer video analysis software

Soccer video analysis software is not the same as generic sports analysis software in the same way that soccer is not the same sport as the other popular sports like American football, basketball, and baseball.

Because soccer is unique, to perform soccer video analysis, the software needs to be unique as well. Soccer video analysis software needs to be purpose-built and not simply a derivative of another sport’s video analysis software system with a “soccer” label added and sold as a soccer video analysis tool.

Let’s explore a few of the things that make a good soccer video analysis software system:

  1. Built for soccer – This cannot be stated often enough. If a video system is built specifically for soccer, it’s going to be better than a video analysis system built for another sport.

    Just as a pick-up truck is better for hauling trailers and a sports car is better at going fast at the race track, the software is better when it’s purpose-built and then used for that purpose. Sure, there are fast pick-up trucks but none of them will achieve the lap times of a purpose-built sports car.

  2. Easy to use – Good workflow tends to follow product design. When the soccer video analysis software is built from the onset with a singular purpose, it’s common sense that the most important features will be easy and accessible without the clutter and complexity of a general-purpose system with “soccer features” added into the software platform.

  3. Handles massive video files – 90 minutes is an average soccer game but many games run longer due to injuries, delays, etc. This means an already massive video file is going to become even “more massive” so the video analysis software needs to be able to handle these large files without bogging down.

    In contrast, American football really has only 5 to 10 minutes of actual video action so the files are much smaller and the software does not need to be as robust.

  4. Functional sharing – YouTube makes it easy to share a video so anyone can watch the video. While convenient, this can be a huge detriment when there are people i.e. competitors, that you do not want to view your team and obtain scouting info.

    What you really want is a system that allows you to not only share the video, you want to retain viewing controls and you want to be able to share the video so others can use the source video to create their own videos.

    This allows parents and players to create highlight videos for college recruiting from the same source video that you use for your coaching analysis.

  5. Remote Coaching – Time is always short during the season so your soccer video analysis software must allow other designated people to help you with the work and lighten the load.

There is really only 1 soccer video analysis system that checks all these boxes and best of all, it’s 100% FREE forever!

SocrPro soccer video analysis software was built from the ground up, from day #1, to be a dedicated soccer software platform and its fulfilled this mission to become the most loved soccer platform available.

If you need to do soccer video analysis, you’re going to love the SocrPro free coaching tools and your players will love the feedback they get from you.

There’s a “free soccer billing software” scam being used by almost all

There’s a “free soccer billing software” scam being used by almost all the top players in the sports billing software industry today but this scam is 100% legal. Whether it’s ethical is a different story but there’s a lot of gray area to be debated.

The truly shocking aspect of this sports industry billing scam isn’t that it exists… after all, it’s 100% legal… the shocking part is that this type of billing scheme was uncovered and all but eliminated 17-years ago in the e-commerce world.

Used and promoted widely in the early 2000’s, it was quickly replaced by a more cost efficient model and once this other model was in place, nobody was willing to go back to the “loan shark” rates charged by the “old school” e-commerce billing systems.

But just as “get rich quick” schemes seem to reappear in different venues, from the back pages of magazines to the high-tech venue of the internet, and then back to direct mail… this insane billing scam has reappeared in the sports industry without anyone really noticing.

I suppose it’s not that surprising since soccer coaches are not known to be e-commerce experts and e-commerce experts are typically not running sports businesses. I’ll admit that I had no idea this even existed any longer and was shocked to discover the scheme still lived in the far corners of the sports industry.

Worst of all… there are still many that actually like this billing model, even when they’re paying exorbitant fees, for a commodity service.

Many believe that since these fees are added onto the “back-end” of the transaction, that their customers (i.e. sports parents) do not even notice that they are being charged above and beyond what they agreed to pay.

Nothing could be further from the truth. They all “notice” but they do not blame the billing software for the extra fees, they blame the soccer club because that’s show they think they’re paying.

The end result is that the soccer club receives the “hate” for the fees but the billing software receives the money… not a good deal for the soccer club!

But there is a better way if you can spare 9-minutes!

Soccer clubs can easily follow the exact same model that all the online e-commerce businesses follow. Investing 9 minutes of work -1 time – into setting up their billing system will allow them to dramatically reduce those fees and keep that money for the club versus giving it to another company.

Are you ready to drop thousands of dollars of profit onto your bottom line?

Call us and we’ll not only show you how to do it, we”ll set it up for you so you can just enjoy the benefits of keeping all that cash in your soccer club.

We’ll Do Your Soccer Game Analysis for You

Time is the one commodity you can never create more of in your life. We all have the same clock ticking and the limitations that come with this valuable commodity.

The only way to get “more time” is to leverage automation or the help (time) of others.

There are video systems that will help you “automate” your game video but only if you’re trying to track simple things like time of possession or goals.

The problem with this approach is that it completely ignores the reality about why these things happened. They tell you the “what” happened but never the “why” it happened.

Why was your time of possession so good? Why did you score? Why did you give up the goal?

Everyone knows what the final score of the game but this “what” information is never going to help increase your team’s soccer IQ or show you ways to improve to win the next game.

The most important thing to know is the “why” for the “what”. If all you have is the “what”, you really do not have much at all.

This is where your experience as a quality soccer coach comes into play because you get to add the “why” into the game analysis and make your players and your team much smarter. Not just “what” happened but “why” it happened.

Ah yes… back to that pesky issue of not enough time to do the game analysis to help your team withe the “why”.

This is where we can help you.

We will actually break down the games for you with expert coaches that know and understand the youth soccer game and the unique needs and capabilities of youth soccer players.

When you run out of time, or maybe you simply want a 3rd party set of eyes to look at your team for objective analysis to identify things in your “blink spot”, let us help you with our virtual coaching system.

We’ll break down the games for you and all you need to do is sit back and check our work to ensure it matches with your coaching philosophy and style.

The “Free Soccer Software” Lie

Is the Heja price really free? What about TeamSnap… free as well or is there a high price to pay? The harsh reality is that most clubs using SportsEngine for registration, or Heja, or TeamSnap are paying a massive fee or the privilege of using their “free soccer software”.

But there is a better solution… a solution that truly provides free soccer software that is not stealing from your soccer club through the back door hidden fees and outrageous up-charges on every transaction.

The SocrPro registration system works in a modern way like the best e-commerce platform used by millions versus the “old school” way that went out with the 90’s.

Watch how easy it is save massive amounts of money in 60-seconds of less!

Heja Pricing – Is It a Lie?

Heja pricing is a mystery to me. I look at the Heja website and I see very little that tells me the actual price of using Heja for a club.

Sure, I see the “Heja is free” part of their website… and I like free scheduling software. I think “free scheduling software” is the way to go for a soccer club and SocrPro, TeamSnap, Spond, etc. have all provided free scheduling software in a similar vein.

The reality of the world, and all free scheduling apps, is that there is really nothing 100% free in life.

Maybe you’ll need to watch commercials, like TeamSnap requires in their free scheduling software, or maybe you’ll need to upgrade to a more powerful version of the scheduling software to unlock vital features necessary to make the soccer scheduling app truly useful.

In the case of SocrPro, it provides the same, or more, scheduling functions for free than all the others charge for but to get the amazing Itinerary system with built-in Meal Planner, you will need to upgrade to a paid package.

Is that fair? Only you can make that decision for yourself.

In all, the free scheduling software is a fair deal to me. You get to use the scheduling app for free and then decide if the paid version is something that provides enough value to justify the paid upgrade.

I personally prefer the Heja and SocrPro model that bribes you into an upgrade versus the TeamSnap model where they annoy you into an upgrade by forcing you to watch commercials in the free versions of the scheduling app. The biggest difference between the SocrPro free version and the Heja free version is the level of “real world” capability that Heja restricts and SocrPro provides.

But all good things come to an end… when reality sets in hard!

Reality sets in when you discover that to use Heja for your soccer club, the Heja pricing becomes a thick veil of “mystery” clouded by the word “deal”.

Followed quickly by the price of Heja when using their payment collection system… now we’re talking about a really “price cloud” from Heja.

Let’s start off with the “Club deal” because this is the first area you’re going to need to “deal with” when it comes to using Heja for your soccer club.

What is a “deal”?

When you bought your last car, did the salesman offer you a “deal”?

Used car salesman are experts at offering “deals” on their cars because there’s never any reasonable way to do a direct comparison. Every used car is a 1-of-a-kind car so every price offered as a “deal” is subject to the person offering the “deal” and the person accepting the “deal”.

New cars are better if you’re comparing identical vehicles at different dealerships but have you noticed how they always seem to have different options?

When a company is selling a 1-of-a-kind product, they know they’re selling a “used car” and there is no direct way to compare prices. People can compare similar software scheduling packages but there are no 2 exactly the same.

So where is the “deal”?

There is no real “deal”, there is only “how much can we get them to pay”.

The real “deal” is when everyone is paying the same price and you’ve somehow managed to pay less. But if everyone is paying the “Club deal” mystery price, you really need to wonder if you’re the guy paying the most and have the worst “Club deal” or are you paying the least and have the best “Club deal”?

Here’s the hard truth; you’re negotiating 1 time and have limited information while the Heja salesperson is negotiating many deals and might be collecting a massive commission for extracting the most money possible from you… so who do you think is really getting the best “Club deal”?

Talk to any retired used car salesman and he’ll tell you.

But wait… because it gets worse.

What you pay up front is literally the tip of the iceberg bobbing up and down innocently in front of you while your club “ship” rams full speed into the real price of using Heja.

When you use Heja for collecting payments, there is a hidden fee that’s robbing you of a massive sum of money through over inflated processing fees and transaction fees.

These inflated fees can easily cost you more than the upfront expense you agreed to pay while negotiating your “Club deal”.

These fees are the proverbial “death by a thousand cuts” because it bleeds your club of desperately needed cash from every transaction and every dollar spent with your club.

We’re easily talking about $2,000, $6,000, even $12,000 or more depending upon the size of your club and the amount you collect in registration and product sales each year. For a really large club, these numbers could be a small percentage of the actual money lost through Heja billing fees and transaction fees.

Multi-state mega clubs could be hemorrhaging upwards of $53,750 just on transaction and billing fees alone!

What’s the solution to these outrageous fees?

SocrPro uses a completely different system for registration and billing that puts you in control to save this money and put it in your pocket instead of into the Heja till. Imagine what you can do with all this extra bottom line cash when it comes to equipment upgrades, scholarships and additional showcases.

In conclusion, when you’re looking at the Heja pricing, it’s critical that you look at both the upfront price of Heja and the ongoing operational price of Heja by calculating the additional fees you’ll pay for every billing transaction.

That is the real “Heja price” for your soccer club software!

PS If you think saving these transaction fees is difficult… think again because we can show you how easy this is to accomplish with 10 minutes of effort that you do 1-time and then forget about it and let it run 100% on auto-pilot.

You’ll never allow your club to get ripped off again when you see how simple this is – I guarantee it!

Free Soccer Billing app

Free soccer billing app… or free sports billing app… it really doesn’t matter because they both end up robbing your soccer club of valuable funds without you even knowing it’s happening.

Let’s back up a minute and I just want you to think about what you could do with and extra $2,000, $5,000 or even and extra $12,000 without having to do an extra minute of work. Quite literally, you can save this amount of money with 10 minutes of effort 1 time and then never do anything more… not ever.

The weird part of this story is that I had no idea this soccer billing practice even existed because it was basically banished from the e-commerce world 18 years ago. Discovering that this archaic soccer billing practice existed, much less thrived, was a massive surprise to me.

My goal is to educate as many people as possible so I can help you keep that money in your club so you can afford to buy new equipment, provide more scholarships or just make sure your club can stay afloat through these tough times.

Let me explain the sleazy part of soccer registration billing and then provide you with the simple solution.

When you use one of these “other” free soccer apps for billing, what they’re doing is drastically overcharging for the credit card processing fees and charging as much as 10X for transaction fees. These outrageous overcharges might seem like they’re getting passed off to the parents paying for their kids but in reality, the club could just as easily keep those fees to better fund the club.

Parents do not care if they’re paying a surcharge to you or to the billing company, they just know they are paying more, they’re bottom line costs have gone up.

So what’s the solution?

In SocrPro, our registration and billing system was set up based upon modern e-commerce practices so you get to add your own credit card processing account into our system. This is literally a “copy and paste” operation and we’ll help you to make it done correctly.

Once it’s set up, you’ll never need to touch it again!

From a user standpoint, they never see the back end systems and all they see is an order page with your name and logo. It works the same, or better, than the billing system you’re using today but with a massively lower cost to operate.

Yes… your operational cost of registration and billing will drop significantly because “free” is not really “free”!

This might seem complicated but I assure you that it is extremely simple and once you have this set up, you’ll never touch it again. There is nothing to maintain and nothing to service. Just “set it” and then “forget it”!

Call one of our service reps today and we’ll get you set up very quickly and easily.

Plus, you’ll have all the other tools as a “bonus”. You’re going to save time, save money and win more games – I guarantee it!
