Combine this app with the screen in your gym or hall and you have a professional scoreboard that is completely customisable for most games. You can changes  team names and colours, it has a clock, time buzzer and even a shot clock.

The subtitle for this app is “bring the stadium home” and that’s what it does by providing a very effective speed radar  for Baseball, Softball, Tennis, Soccer and Cricket. A great way for students to reflect on specific skills.

This is quite an amazing app, especially since it is free.

Huddle lets you take slow  motion video of your students’ performance then slow it down to analyse and give feedback. A great way to give meaningful feedback and coaching and for your students to self assess and improve their own performance and skills.

Another sensational  app from the PE Geek, Jarrod Robinson. This one enables teachers or students to easily record elements of sports performance and upload it to Google Drive, Dropbox or OneDrive. For in-depth analysis the clip can be uploaded to http://www.vidalyze.com

These apps work like  the whiteboards that professional coaches use. They are designed specifically for each sport and used on the iPad to drill down into drills, strathegies and tactics. They can be used on the iPad directly “on the field” or attached to a data screen for lessons and feedback. The plays that you design can even be saved an shared.

There is also a paid version of CoachNote for $7.99 with more features

This might seem like a pretty expensive app but it is a great tool to take videos of students in action and get a continuous replay with a 6 second delay. A great tool to use in conjunction with a big screen in the gym to allow for detailed coaching or discussion of performance and skills.

Yet another great app from the PE Geek. Energise your beep tests by playing the music of your choice rather than beeps.
