    WHY WE DO IT

    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.

    Measurement
    Measure

    Using a web-based, anonymous survey platform, Ecsell Sports compiles data on the student-athlete experience.

    Report
    Analyze & Report

    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.

    Educate
    Educate & Develop

    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.

    THE SIX THEMES

    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.  

    CONNECTION
    Building relationships of trust with student-athletes.
    PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY
    Constructing an environment that allows student-athletes to be their own true self without fear of negative consequences.
    Structure
    Establishing an organized, consistent, and predictable team environment.  
    Skill Development
    Advancing competence and technique so student-athletes perform to the best of their ability.
    Attitude
    Impacting mindset to enhance how student-athletes think, feel, and behave.
    CHALLENGE
    Creating unique growth opportunities for each student-athlete that moves them out of their comfort zone.

    WHEN COACHES KNOW BETTER, COACHES DO BETTER

    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.

    FEEDBACK

    This is what coaches and athletic directors are saying:

    "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."

    Brad M.
    High School Athletic Director
    "Ecsell Sports is the first of its kind that has made me aware of my relational skills in coaching and how they impact my athletes and staff. Before Ecsell Sports, I was less aware of how my words and actions affected others. As I have grown with the support of Ecsell Sports, it's been reinforced to me that coaching is less about Xs and Os or winning and more about relationships. My coaching has been elevated to a new level of elite."
    Terri N.
    Head Volleyball Coach

    "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."
