Achieveminds has teamed up with Talent Pathway iD (TPiD) to create an improved data driven and holistic approach to esports coaching and player development.
TPiD is a system which uses AI to offer sports organisations intelligent and bespoke data insights to improve the balance between athlete performance and well-being. They use cutting edge AI data analytics to enable individuals and teams to understand which developmental factors are most significant for athletes to succeed.
Achieveminds is a performance consultancy agency for professional esports players and organisations. They will use these deep insights in data to support athletes and identify, develop and deliver the most important factors of athlete performance in esports. This partnership marks TPiD’s first move into esports.
Data in esports can be difficult and time-consuming to organise and interpret, similar to sports. Knowing which data is the most important is a significant challenge to deliver but is essential to identify. There is a shortage of professional esports coaches across the industry which results in a small percentage of talent able to go pro.
The TPiD system aims to streamline analytics to help athletes improve performance by informing them about optimal break to game ratios, hydration states, sleep patterns and activity outside of esports.
Achieveminds hopes to tackle long standing problems seen in esports by incorporating granular insights. These include player overtraining and burnout, whilst also improving player performance in conjunction with maintaining a healthier lifestyle, to help more talent make it to the top.
The system improves optimal development environments for coaches and is built around evidenced based talent development data. This gives organisations confidence in what data is being analysed, why it is important and how the analyses are being performed.
Fabian Broich, Founder of Achieveminds said: “TPiD aligns with the core values of mine, they combine scientific research that instils confidence, personal experiences from years of work in talent development, and cutting edge applied methods to create individual KPIs for athletes and coaches.”
Chairman of TPiD, Robin McCammon said: “Esports has a great opportunity to develop the holistic individual rather than just ‘the performer’: be that the athlete, coach, or wider support practitioner.”
TPiD has already been used by Canoe Wales who transferred the data collected into real-time actionable insights which helped to understand the drivers of elite athletes.
Achieveminds is a German-based company created by Fabian Broich, a former professional footballer and sports psychologist. He went on to esports coaching where he created performance structures with some of the biggest teams in the world with well-being at its core.
