We firmly believe our technology can help guide coaches to deliver more efficient practices that will not only enhance the overall development of your player, but will increase the awareness around your child’s health. This will better inform the coaches as to the training requirements for each child within the team and help ensure a minimum standard of coaching quality for every practice.
Your team's coach and director of coaching (if you are playing at the club level) will be able to see your team's data in addition to yourself. If you are using your Smart Belt in the University or High School environment, it is also likely that your assistant coaches and strength and conditioning coaches will have access to track your progress!
Our coaching dashboard is designed in a layered format giving coaches access to each of their teams. The Club’s DOC and/or Technical Director will have super admin access allowing them to see every team in the club. Players and their parents have access to their own information through their own player dashboard and will have the added ability to record their own sessions with the release of the individual Player App in April, 2019.
The fundamental purpose of Beyond Pulse and the data collection is to support coaching education and youth development. It is the shared role of the Coach to ensure the ethical and proper usage of the data depending on age and ability level within each club. The Beyond Pulse Education and Research team will be sure to help clubs ensure best practice around this - check out our LEARN blog for more content on this :-)
The BP Smart Belts are appropriate for ages 8 and above. While focus on individual data is not a primary concern at the younger ages, we believe that coaches can learn about the efficiency of their coaching practices starting with the youngest groups. At these fundamental ages of development, it is crucial to develop good training habits and coaching practice. This is why we feel so strongly about our Active Participation metric which you can see more of in this short video!
One of the biggest barriers for wearable technology at the youth level of sports was the complexity of the technology and the process for coaches to be able to collect this data. At Beyond Pulse, we fully understand the demands placed upon coaches and we wanted to create a process that would be simple and stress- free. All coaches need is 30 seconds at the start of practice, 60 seconds at the end of practice and within a few touches on their app, we can have access to some crucial data to help raise the health and performance of our teams!
YES! Right now all players have access to their own Player Dashboard where they can see a calendar view of their own activity history and analyze their own sessions. Players also receive this information in an automated e-mail report immediately after each

Our Smart Belt modules are versatile, light and very small but extremely durable. The circular module is 10mm in height and 36mm in diameter. As with any impact from the ball there is a chance for moderate pain, however the module sits securely on the strap and does not protrude far from your chest. These belts have been used at various levels of the professional game for over 10 years and have never been the direct cause for a serious injury – so don’t worry!
