McClurg will offer data analytics platform to assist in talent identification & development for professional soccer careers
Toronto, ON September 22, 2021//: Today Ian McClurg Performance Coaching and Best Athletes Ltd. announced a new partnership that brings together one of Canada’s leading soccer talent identification experts with a leading sports analytics platform that allows coaches and players to tap into professional-level data tools and performance development analytics to help athletes get recruited.
“As a scout for Fleetwood Town FC in England, a former Toronto FC Academy Coach and Ontario Provincial Coach I understand how difficult it is for players to reach the professional level”, said Ian McClurg.”I’m looking forward to utilizing the Best Athletes platform to help track performance and assist in developing youth soccer players looking for a professional career. The platform has lots of value for me as a scout and coach and a complete toolkit for the athletes to benchmark progress and get scouted.”
McClurg will use the Best Athletes data analytics and performance development platform in conjunction with his training, performance assessment, scouting and game analysis services.
Steven Caldwell, CEO of Best Athletes and current TSN Soccer Analyst and former captain of Toronto FC remarked “This partnership is a true indication of the value that our platform offers coaches and scouts. We are really excited to work with Ian who has developed one of the leading private soccer academies in the country. Our partnership will open up additional avenues for Canadian youth looking for professional level opportunities in places like the UK.”
Best Athletes was created to address the gap in athlete performance development by allowing coaches and players to use data science and analytics to benchmark performance and better understand the pathway to University/College opportunities and elite team participation.
