Benefits of GameStrat Sideline Replay at Practice
Benefits of GameStrat Sideline Replay at Practice

The value of sideline replay on game days is undeniable - but how can coaches leverage it in the day to day practices leading up to Friday night? If you’re already paying for the technology, you may as well get your money’s worth. We started using it during practice as well and it eliminates the down time that guys have standing around on the sideline.

Defensively we’re on the smart board using GameStrat while the offense is on the field and then we’ll switch. -Marcus Neeson, AC at Apopka High School
