With innovation and technology in sports on the rise, the Miami Dolphins are wasting no time spreading their knowledge across the local community. Last weekend, the Dolphins teamed up with Krossover, the leader in sports analytics and video breakdown for high school football, to host the first ‘Krossover Day,’ held at the Dolphins training facility in Davie, Florida. Krossover Day was led by Dolphins Executive Vice President of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum and Senior Director of Community Affairs Twan Russell with the goal to spend one day educating local high school coaches on how a professional program is run.
“Anytime we can promote the game, is a great opportunity for us,” Russell said.
Krossover Day opened up with Tannenbaum addressing coaches about game film. Tannenbaum strongly recommended coaches equip themselves with a tool that enables them to be a better coach through game film and analytics with Krossover being the solution.
Krossover is a web platform that breaks down your game film, so you can analyze exactly what you need in your game film. In as little as 12 hours, coaches receive full game stats, formation reports and interactive down and distance reports. Tannenbaum stressed that adding the automation Krossover provides on to the current process of game film breakdown will allow coaches to be more efficient in the film room and more prepared on the field.
Russell then gave coaches a facility tour complete with access to the offensive and defensive film rooms, locker rooms and on-field access for practice. Russell invited Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin to meet the coaches during a break at practice and give an insider’s perspective to exactly what was happening on the field. As practice wrapped up, coaches shared what they learned.
“They obviously do a lot of detail oriented techniques that we’ve learned, that we can take back to our kids at camp,” said Jase Holloway, assistant coach at Hallandale High School.
The Dolphins kick off the season on September 13th, 2015 versus the Washington Redskins. Until then, the Dolphins will be at work on the field and in the film room.
