In NCAA football, the talent level is high and the competition is extreme, making athlete development and player availability a crucial part of successful programs. With over 100 student-athletes and limited time to train, Auburn needed an efficient system to identify individual player needs and provide player programs on a large scale.
The Sparta Solution
Starting in 2017, the Auburn University football program brought in Sparta Science to guide their programming, year-round. The quick assessments and intuitive software interface allows the staff to collect data and implement appropriate programs instantly – something that was impossible prior to bringing Sparta in. By understanding where injury risk lies, Auburn coaches are able to focus on the development of each individual, building the resilience of each student-athlete and of the football program as a whole. “We believe that the partnership and incorporation of the Sparta Science technology has been a positive addition to the development of our players over the past few years,” notes Conor Mielke, Athletic Performance Coach.
