Become a better floorball player by sitting behind the computer [part 2]

Continuing our miniseries about statistics in floorball, here’s part 2. We started off with an extended introduction and now, David Schenker would like to give you some more illustrated examples.

How is the image below helping you a in floorball game, one might wonder. It’s not clear at all what all dots mean and how you can learn from it. However, the analytical software Performasports has a way for it, and Schenker will explain it (text continues below image):

A tracked game, where each colour represents a specific event or player

This is what a tracked game looks like, as explained in article 1. The colours indicated the different events, they can then be filtered by event or player. This can also be done across multiple games. Per game I tracked somewhere between 250 and 350 events, this all depends on the depth you want to go into.

Blocked and missed shots

Here the events are filtered so that only the blocked and missed shots are shown from this particular game. It’s from one team, which explains the reason all shots are on the same half.

Locations from where a goal was scored

This shot map indicates the locations, from which a player scored across all games played. To get more information, more games need to be tracked.

All shots on goal from a particular player

In yellow, you can see all shots on goal from a particular player across the whole season. As you can see, the filters allow the coaches and players great insights into event-specific patterns from a single player or the whole team in a single game or across multiple games. The shot from own half was taken in the 70th minute: probably the last second of overtime!

Video footage can also be reviewed by players and coaches very easily. Filters also allow players to find video clips by event type and/or game selection. Each clip takes you directly to the action that happened in that game.

    When executed well, the slapshot is the fastest shot in floorball. Where do the speed and power come from? That’s what I’m gonna dive into today, helped by ice hockey and… physics! Fact: in 2011, the record for the hardest ice hockey shot was broken: Denis Kulyash (Russia) managed to shoot with a speed of […]
