Success Story: How Going Yard saved 120+ hours by using SkillShark

Previously, we manually compiled evaluation data, which was time-consuming. With SkillShark, we score players on our mobile devices and athlete reports are instantly generated once evaluations are complete.

The Story of SkillShark

I’m Neil Anderson. A coach who was simply looking for a more efficient way to evaluate my players.

It started with a simple need that you might relate to: Finding some way to eliminate painful data entry and stacks of handwritten notes during player evaluations.

I first approached other coaches who were in the same boat: All were trapped under a mountain of paperwork. They reassured this was a solution every coach needed….It was then I was fully invested.

The first step after working and testing multiple wireframes was to hire a development team that could bring my vision to life. When I finally found the right people, we excitedly got to work. After years of working and repeat testing, we created SkillShark.

Today, SkillShark is the leading player evaluation software on the market.

We are trusted by leading organizations, working with partners such as the Houston Astros, Arizona Diamondbacks, USSSA, NCSA, TeamSnap, and Tampa Bay Lightning.

If I can assist in saving you time on your evaluations—upwards of 30+ hours per event—consider it done! Allow me to demonstrate how in the complimentary session outlined

I have utilized SkillShark in my player evaluations on four continents and in my practice/game analysis of professional athletes for over five years culminating in a CFL Grey Cup Championship. The potential for custom design to meet your unique needs separates SkillShark from other platforms. Customer support is always available and helpful. Champions value the advantage SkillShark provides.Greg Quick, Linebacker Coach, Montreal Alouettes and Former Director of Global Scouting for the CFL.

SkillShark should be used by every team that does evaluations. The data provided was integral to our team placements. Being able to provide that data along with videos of the athletes skills to their parents helped mitigate hard conversations about placements and gave athletes something to measure themselves against.

From the first discussion, and introduction to SkillShark, I was blown away by the tool, the overall presentation of the features and customization, and simply the experience I had. Adam was thorough and was able to answer all my questions on the spot and he let the technology do much of the talking. I subscribed immediately, have built my configuration, uploaded the first team, and can't wait to start using the product more thoroughly with all the assessment customization I built. I would give SkillShark 6 stars if I was able, and I encourage anyone who wants to enhance their player assessments and development to demo the product.

Skillshark has saved us countless amounts of hours and headaches that came with paper evaluation sheets. We’ve used it for both our youth and club lacrosse evaluations and find the data to be easy to read and share and appreciate how customizable it is, as well. The customer support is top-notch, and even our tech-averse evaluators could use it on their phones with ease. We will definitely be sharing and continuing to use SkillShark.

Used this for 2023 softball 8U/10/12U All Star tryouts and it worked perfectly. Anyone who has had to deal with tryouts and rankings and the tedious paperwork or spreadsheets that goes along with it can save themselves days of work. Can upload the names directly from SE or excel. Very intuitive for the evaluators and their customer service is fantastic. I'll use this for all tryouts moving forward. The time it saves is worth every penny.

We were looking for a tool to add some objectivity to our tryout process and Skill Shark looked like it would provide that and eliminate our spreadsheet tryout process. Once we started using it we found that the data we collected on our players after tryouts allowed us to focus on what skill development they needed and we could communicate to players and parents more clearly where they needed to focus their own skill development. It's also become a great database to compare incoming players to our existing players to help us more quickly understand incoming player talent and growth areas. We keep finding new ways to use this to make our teams better.

I found SkillShark while searching for an app to use for our softball tryouts to eliminate the manual aspects of paper evaluations. It worked great and met all of our needs. It was highly customizable both on the metrics side and the reporting. I was able to make adjustments on the spot and only needed to give a quick tutorial to my evaluators just a few minutes before go-time. I was able to see the results flow through instantly. It can also be used offline so results can be uploaded as soon as the evaluator gets back a connection. In addition, Adam and team were available to help answer all my questions, even on off-hours to help me through my tryout process. Highly recommend SkillShark and will definitely use it in the future.

I've been scouting European talent for the Canadian Junior Football League for a year and used Skill Shark at a recent combine. Skill Shark makes the process clean and neat, metrics can be entered for each rep at each station DIRECTLY into the App. The range of reports are excellent for comparisons, coaching evaluations, and informing the players where they stand out and where they can improve. This is the best money I have spent on an App and I can see that it would be even more valuable as a Long Term Player Development tool.Thanks Skill Shark.

I run a growing goalkeeper academy and these guys help me provide a service that no one else can. They help me not only give my players feedback, but also allow me to link videos to their needs. They have a great program to help you create a library of developmental videos, informational packets, and weblinks to help our players take their development into their own hands. When I have been confused on how to use the product, because of the vast features they offer they took time to walk me through them step by step and how to implement them to make the experience even better. Don't pass up on these guys they know what they are doing and they are constantly looking to be better at something they already do a great job at.

This app has been great for our entire baseball program from 9U-18U. It's easy to use, the data is great, and reports are clear. We love going back and seeing the videos for tryouts and feedback and development. Our parents love the developmental resources for the boys and their own education. The support has been great! Thanks, Neil and team!
