After spending way too much time leading the stats and video efforts for youth hockey teams over two seasons, Erik Cagnina, Athletic Performance Insight's Founder, needed a more efficient solution and started searching for a system that was easy to use, could accommodate a range of video and reporting requirements and still fit the budget for a typical travel team.
Plenty of apps or systems existed but none seemed to meet those three criteria. Basic apps and systems were priced right but generally weren't able to capture sufficient detail or integrate video. More powerful systems had all the necessary functionality but were too expensive. Unable to find an existing system that met his needs, Erik decided to launch Athletic Performance Insight and create his own user friendly, flexible system offered at a reasonable cost.
Beta testing over the 2018-19 season led to a complete rebuild over the Summer of 2019 and a controlled release for the 2019-20 season. A variety of improvements were implemented during that season and over the Summer of 2020 in preparation for a full release for the 2020-21 season.
Despite the challenges we all now face due to COVID, Erik has continued to move forward with the goal of Athletic Performance Insight becoming the premier video and analytics system for amateur hockey.
