Game Strategy

Game Day Planning and Strategy

Game planning relies heavily on statistical analysis, to identify patterns/trends and understand the team’s strengths and weaknesses. A data-driven approach allows for more informed tactical adjustments which influence substitutions, rotations, team selection, and overall game management – leading to improved team performance.

The Science

Backed by research

Research Point 1

Lack of game time for a player is a Top 5 contributing factor for disengagement with Australian rules football.¹ The primary reason for participation in alternative sports was based on the opportunity for more game time, more touches during the games and greater scoring opportunities.¹

Research Point 2

It is well established that playing multiple sports from a young age leads to a wider skill set, by extension the rotation of players through multiple positions on the field will likely result in a more well-rounded footballer²,³.

Research Point 3

Stint duration of an individual athlete results in an exponential decay in running intensities i.e., the longer a player is on the field, the greater the decrease in their running output⁴. There is also a strong correlation with overuse injuries and training exposure / volume of exercise, highlighting the need to properly manage an athlete’s playing and training time⁵,⁶.
