An Overview of Pocket Videos™, LLC
At Pocket Videos™, LLC we’re into the idea of using video and images to learn sport skills. From our ultra-efficient Sequence Sheets to our latest Coach Clips™ for the phone or tablet, we’ve made products to help coaches and athletes in many different settings. We try to follow the idea that the images need to be clear, filmed from the correct angle, and suitable to learn from, not a freak performance.
While Pocket Videos™, began as an image company, Duncan has always maintained his presence in the javelin coaching world. He has over thirty years experience coaching the javelin, and using video and images has always been a big part of how he coaches.
Recently, he discovered two things that have helped his javelin coaching immensely. The first, is using the new coach apps like Ubersense, Coach’s Eye or the Video Physics app to make comparisons to show differences and similarities between model throwers and the throwers he coaches.
Secondly, he had such great success coaching his throwers last year, using Finland’s training javelin, that he established a partnership with the Finns to be able to import and sell this javelin in the United States. We are calling it the Finnflier®, and refer to it as Finland’s flight training javelin. Learn more about the Finnflier®.
About Our Products
Simple but effective, sequence sheets have been used for years to get athletes thinking about technique. Our High School Track and Field series has been put to an exciting new use!
Our Sequence sheets are a great value to let the athlete see how it’s done. As a great introduction to learning about technique using images, these simple printouts have none of the hassles associated with video playback because they’re instantly accessible at a glance.
If you look quickly from left to right, the image even appears to move. It’s also easy to compare any frame with another instantly, and they’re large enough that several athletes and a coach can view them together.
Our new Coach Clips™ series takes advantage of the breakthroughs in mobile device technology that allow plenty of storage with clear, controllable playback. It’s so convenient to see it all in the palm of your hand. And teamed up with the new coaching apps, our Coach Clips™ allow not only showing how it’s done, but the gold standard of sport video analysis, comparisons.
Comparisons can provide an immediate, new understanding. Confusing terminology gets forgotten, while details and big picture aspects of the action can jump out of the screen like never before. The biggest differences are often easy to see in a comparison and this helps guide the athlete and coach to focus their energies on the top priority.
