The Warner Public Schools football program has recently invested in Riddell’s InSite smart helmet technology, which now includes InSite Training Tool. ITT is Riddell’s latest innovation in head impact monitoring technology and will now offer the Eagles the unique opportunity to use a sabermetric approach to athlete protection.
Riddell’s ITT technology is a web-based data center that builds player impact profiles, rich with information, that a coach may use to identify opportunities. These then can be used to proactively influence player behavior and reduce exposure to impacts through improved training techniques and practice plans.
“Now, more than ever, it’s our responsibility as football coaches, trainers and administrators to embrace new technological advances that enable us to proactively protect our athletes and ensure that they can continue to enjoy the game of football,” said Warner Public School Athletic Director, Sam Fairchild. “With the purchase of Riddell’s InSite Training Tool, we are following through on our commitment, offering our staff and players real and useful data that we believe will continue to make the game smarter.”
ITT is backed by millions of on-field impacts dating back to 2003. It uses InSite-equipped smart helmets to not only monitor and alert the sideline to significant impacts, but also to collect, consolidate and analyze nearly every head impact to learn and track specific behaviors by player, unit or team.
The Warner Junior and Senior High football programs, grades 6 – 12, will be using the new ITT impact management program during their upcoming Fall 2019 season.
