Spanish basketball Supercup: the secret ‘weapon’ of the champions

Spanish basketball Supercup: the secret ‘weapon’ of the champions

Valencia Basket was crowned last Saturday as Supercopa Endesa 2017 champs. This is the first official tournament of the Spanish basketball season. The recipe for their success: a really capable coaching staff, a great roster and why not, in the backstage, a leading-edge video analysis technology.
This season will be the third one of Valencia Basket using Nacsport as performance analysis solution. A software which allows their staff to carry out such a quick analysis processes. By doing so, both assistant coaches –Jaume Ponsarnau and Juan Maroto- can work with ease, getting quality information to provide head coach and players with data to make better decisions in the court, where games are won.

The Spanish side starts this season in the same way the finished the previous one: by conquering a tournament. Valencia Basket are the current Spanish League champions (one of the most competitive domestic competitions in the world), apart from current runner up in both the Spanish Cup and Eurocup.
Some months ago, their analysis team added another tool to keep on improving video analysis processes: KlipDraw Animate, a telestration tool to make professional drawings on videos, which can be integrated into Nacsport. Animate allows them to spotlight ideas and tactics to clearly show their players through specific tools for sport analysis.

But the work does not stop here. Assistants are already analysing clips from the tournament to keep improving performance for the upcoming season. As you can see, the attached presentation is showing some clips from the Supercup games which have been shared with players in video session. Clips includes KlipDraw Animate drawing sequences.

Overlapping stories

Nacsport is consolidating as the preferred video analysis software in the Spanish basketball: analysts Ponsarnau and Maroto have been using Nacsport last two seasons. Pedro Martinez was the head coach then and he already worked with our software in Manresa and Gran Canaria teams, also Nacsport users.

Txus Vidorreta, which is the head coach this season, also worked with Nacsport at Iberostar Tenerife last season. Apart from that, Valencia rivals in Supercup are also Nacsport users.
