What are Max Efforts?

What is it?

Max Efforts are the number of times a player performed on the field at an intensity close to his or her physical limit. 

How do we calculate it?

To determine a player’s physical limit we look across the entire game and identify all physical exertion segments. We then identify the segments that have the best combination of speed, acceleration, direction change, and distance covered over a timespan of more than 1 second. Any effort at the top 20% of all segments is a 'Max Effort.'


How can I coach with Max Efforts?

Use # Max Efforts as a communication tool to get through to players you feel need a little extra push to “give more.” Comparing a player’s # Max Efforts to another player in a similar position can help show them where they can improve – and if they might need to focus on endurance in future training sessions.
