BVA Scouting is the brainchild of Gianni Mascagna, three times champion of the Italian championship cup, and Claudio Frosoni, professional software developer and beach volley player. It is conceived as a specialized application for the scouting of beach volleyball. The program allows statistical summary through the innovative technology offered by Apple, and it was designed based on the practical needs collected from world-renowned coaches and athletes.
LITE (Light): It is designed for enthusiasts who want to prepare beach volleyball tournaments by studying the best tactic based on statistics of previous game. The minimal interface allows a real-time scouting in order to generate statistics even during timeouts.
The statistics are numerical and can refer to individual player and team. The statistics are provided by fundamentals (Serving, Passing, Setting etc...) or phases of the game (Side Out, Break Point, etc...), in order to identify the best gambling strategy.
In this version the scoreboard shows only the sequence of the points made without details.
PRO (Professional): It is designed for coaches and assistants and provides an effective tool for identifying the best gambling strategy in real time. When it is used for studying games and tactics from videos, it can largely enrich the amount of information about players and their opponents thus preparing and adjusting the best tactic for the next matches.
The key feature distinguishing the PRO and LITE version is the representation of trajectories when serving, passing, hitting and counter-attacking. In the PRO version this information is elaborated into statistics and presented with graphics in order to highlight strengths and weaknesses of these fundamentals.
The detailed Scoreboard lists all actions included indicating the player, the action, the trajectory, the type of service and attack and the result.
FREE (Professional Free): It is based on PRO version but with the following limitations:
- Only one match can be created
