We developed a video-based analysis system to monitor and analyze performance in technical sports, the CoachCockPit.
The CoachCockPit captures footage of a performance, stores and presents it instantly.
Footage can automatically be analyzed and fed back. We show how daily training activity of trampolinists is monitored and parameters like number of routines, number of jumps per routine, or jump height, can be extracted.
Over weeks and month these parameters display trends that provide information about training progress in relation to the aimed-for training results. Overtraining and stress fractures are crucial risk factors in trampoline jumping. The deployment of the CoachCockPit in trampoline jumping will, in the future, help to predict these risk factors at an early stage.
The Colombia Gymnastics Federation is having a very busy year.
After organising the 9th World Games in Cali, the federation has decided to also host three FIG Academies. An Academy for Trampoline Gymnastics finished in September and now another Academy – a Level 2 for Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics has just finished in Cali. Next week, the federation will be hosting an Academy for Rhythmic Gymnastics.
This most recent Academy was held from October 19 – 27 at the Gimnasio del Pueblo in Cali. … Thirty-six coaches representing nine of the ten FIG member federations of South America attended …
… equally split between Men’s (MAG) and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) coaches with 18 each. The participation at this Academy was partially funded by the FIG through the FIG Development Fund for the Pan-American Gymnastics Union (PAGU). PAGU has used a significant portion of the money from the FIG Development Fund to subsidize the attendance of coaches at Academies and that policy has been enormously successful. …
