Overview

There are a number of performance metrics available to analyse within the PitcheroGPS web app. 

For reference, all of the time measurements are displayed in hours and minutes (HH:MM) and all speed-related metrics are displayed in kilometres per hour or metres per second.

Performance metric definitions

 

Performance metric Description Unit of measurement
Session length The total length of the recorded game or training session. HH:MM

Distance

The total distance covered during a recorded game or training session. Kilometres and metres

Default speed zones

  • Walking
  • Jogging
  • Running
  • Sprinting

Time brackets for each speed zone:

  • Walking is <6 kmph
  • Jogging is 6-12 kmph
  • Running is 12-18 kmph
  • Sprinting is >18 kmph
Kilometres per hour (kmph) or metres per second (m/s)
Max speed Maximum speed achieved by an individual player. Kilometres per hour (kmph)
Accelerations The number of times an individual player accelerated over the specified metres per second squared (m/s²). Number of instances
Decelerations The number of times an individual player decelerated below the specified metres per second squared (m/s²). Number of instances
Impacts

The number of times an individual tracker records a g-force greater than the specified threshold.

In practice, this would pick up heavy tackles, landing and help with the prevention of injury.
