I had the opportunity to go through a day of training in the latest Dartfish software. I was blown away with the changes they have made. I was an early adopter of Dartfish in the winter of 2001. I actually used quite extensively over the next four years and then got away from using it. When I returned this last spring I found that I had become out of touch with it and needed to be retrained. This last week was my fist opportunity for training with the new version the Team Pro 5.0. It is much more intuitive and practical. There is so much that can be done my head is spinning. I wish I could afford to hire someone to just do Dartfish analysis full time, I think it would be that valuable. (This is not a paid endorsement, I also own Silicon Coach.) I think that one of my biggest shortcoming, as a coach has been my inability (possibly reluctance) to use video. I have relied too much on my coaching “eye” that is way to biased. With what we know about skill acquisition this medium is indispensable. I am vowing to make use of the power of this software going forward. I also have a channel on Dartfish TV that I am going to make extensive use of starting in September www.dartfish.tv. I need the month of August to get up to speed with all of this.
