Oliver Kahn is known for being one of the best goalkeepers in history. And his goal "is to make goalkeepers better in the long term". In order to do so, he wanted to share his experience and skills with the young generation of goalkeepers through a smart digital product.
Professional coaching and goalkeeping training are only affordable for a limited group of people, usually, the elite, and GoalPlay wanted to transform them into a fundamental right for young goalkeepers.
The sports' digital product needed to ease the coaching processes and allow trainees to create their own profile, identify the skills they need to improve and get the right training exercises through the app.
To ensure the best experience, GoalPlay together with the Wolfpack Digital team, defined the product strategy and features and, using the power of the Internet of Things, we built an Android app to track the training sessions through the smart sports equipment (smart gloves, in this case) via Bluetooth.
The smart sports app allows people to create a profile and select the skills they want to improve, and the app algorithm matches the needed skills with the right exercises automatically, based on the trainee selected level.
The app has a freemium business model, which allows features to be distributed based on the subscription plan, goalkeeping training goal, different training levels and access to multiple types of exercises (videos, training plans, full access to the exercises).
Once the entire profile is set up, and the exercises start, GoalPlay provides personalized tips and metrics on how to improve game performance on the go!
The Goalplay team is helping the training philosophy of the Reals youth academy through its partnership with Fundación Real Madrid Clinics, the official football school of the royal team!
The app that is designed for goalkeepers by the one and only - Oliver Kahn.
GoalPlay app connects the smart sports equipment with the mobile devices to improve athletes’ performance.
