In the Effective Online Academy, players are able to track the number of touches they’ve completed, finishes, passes, distance, power, plyometrics, intelligence (from the game brain) and classroom minutes.
As Bruce Lee once said,
“I fear not the man who has practiced 10000 kicks once, but I fear the man who had practiced one kick 10000 times.”
This is exactly what the stats in Effective allow you to track because to really get better at something, it takes repetition day after day after day.
Stats let you know that you’re improving with every workout that you complete, knowing that you’re training more than your teammates and getting recognised for your hard work.
Each of the stats have one main category and then 2 - 3 sub-categories. The categories are as follows:
Dribble Touches / First touches / Aerial Touches / Juggles
Aerial (Heading) / Short Range / Long Range
Short Passes / Long Passes
Sprints / Jogging / Tempo Running
Upper / Lower & Core
Hops <30cm / Leaps >30cm / Speed Co-ordination Rungs
Game Brain (minutes)
So how accurate are these statistics then?
Each repetition of an exercise has a minimum number of stats attached to them. For example if you do the Dribble & Turn exercise on Train Effective, you will be taking roughly between 55-75 dribble touches and about 90m of high tempo distance. This is per rep!
We take the minimum number of dribble touches and tempo distance you'd complete in a repetition and apply that to your the stats you earn for that category.
So stats are just one of the FUN and EXCITING areas of Effective that are on offer for you as an EFFECTIVE athlete. You can view your stats every time you complete a workout or in your profile page.
