The North American Hockey League (NAHL) has announced that it has partnered with Steva Sports Software, Inc., the most utilized video indexing and analysis software in the sport of hockey, to provide its teams with access to STEVA PRO for coaching and developing its players.
Designed to take game preparation and postgame analysis to a new level, Steva Sports Software will provide each NAHL team a license with which they can easily analyze video of games and practices, as well as integrate video highlights on their respective Web sites.
Coaches can create and save short video clips that can be used for all of the following: maximizing time; developing team and individual play through visual feedback; scouting opponents and recruits; improving the quality of practices through visual feedback; presentation of custom movies; and creating team video albums.
Keeping with its commitment to maximizing the exposure and opportunities of its student-athletes, the NAHL is excited to utilize Steva’s state-of-the-art technology.
“This is a partnership that will benefit our league for years to come,” said NAHL commissioner Mark Frankenfeld. “As a top producer of collegiate and professional players, our primary goal is to develop and expose our student-athletes to higher levels of hockey and Steva’s involvement is another step in the right direction.”
“We’re extremely excited to have been chosen by the NAHL as the exclusive video analysis software provider,” said Ron Mathurin, vice president of STEVA Sports Software. "The NAHL has long established itself as a premier Junior A league and now players, teams, coaches, scouts and fans will be the first to benefit from our integrated Pointstreak/STEVA video analysis system.”
