Patrick van Leeuwen was brought into Maccabi Tel Aviv to turn the youth department and academy into one of the best in the world and to ensure that the club’s footballing philosophy was represented at all ages.
Patrick recognised that the PlayerMaker system was the right tool to help him achieve this goal and started working with the PlayerMaker team to embed the technology at the club.
The PlayerMaker support team worked with every coach to show them how to make the most of the data that PlayerMaker captures and now the system is used across the club at every training session.
Ilan Richardson, Head of Sports Science, oversees the data collection and analysis. Using a mix of PlayerMaker’s own software and its integration capabilities with other systems, Ilan is able to see how players are progressing over time as well as a get a more complete understanding about whether teams are hitting their goals for training sessions.
