Athletic Directors and coaches told us providing a more positive student-athlete experience was their #1 priority. We listened.
Ecsell Sports was founded on this one idea: To give athletic directors and coaches the right tools to more positively impact their student-athletes.
Using a web-based, anonymous survey platform, Ecsell Sports compiles data on the student-athlete experience.
Results are measured for growth over previous seasons and against similar programs at other schools. Detailed reports are then provided to ADs and coaches that outline scores within the six themes shown below.
Ecsell Sports works with coaches and ADs to develop an educational plan of action based on survey results. We then provide online resources—which include elite performance training modules—that help drive continued success.
Our work has uncovered six coaching themes that are instrumental to understanding and improving the student-athlete experience. How a coach scores within these themes is provided in detailed reports to ADs and coaches, which becomes the playbook for improvement.
As coaches know, practice and dedication are benchmarks of success. This also applies to coaches utilizing our Ecsell Sports online resource library. The more coaches train with our educational materials and training modules, the more they show marked improvements over our six themes.
At a top ranked high school, Ecsell Sports helped this coach obtain year-over-year growth in each of our six measured themes. The example below shows meaningful improvements for them—averaging +54% growth over all measured categories. And when coaching theme scores improve, so does the experience of the student-athletes.
"As an AD, coaching coaches is one of the top responsibilities we have. Teaming up with Ecsell Sports provides multiple resources such as their professional library and the student-athlete survey. Taking time to listen to our student-athletes through authentic data collected has allowed us to improve methods in order to have a more positive impact on the student-athlete experience."
"Our greatest priority in servant leadership is to create a culture that provides the best possible experience for our student-athletes. Our coaches and I are better leaders as a result of our continued partnership with Ecsell Sports. The Ecsell team have helped us quantify the degree to which we are impacting the student-athlete experience. We have seen clear improvements in our coach acumen since we have partnered with Ecsell Sports."
