Coaches Eye – video recording app

I downloaded the app for my iPhone.

Coach’s Eye – Video Analysis by TechSmith Corporation

Iographer frames: Very cool with iPad!

Supposed to be excellent for use in training, especially side-by-side.

Concussion training 2018 (coaches)

I thinking the training site is new this year. For me registration was a bit complicated.

Some things I remember

  1. It’s free. You order it like you were paying but it’s 0.00
  2. Follow the link below, then register then click the link again and click the blue bar. Says something like “order the course”
  3. There are a lot of reference materials, buried in there is MN return to activity guideline. It is well done.
  4. I couldn’t find a way to skip ahead.

The course didn’t run on my iPad’s Safari, but it worked with iOS Chrome. It might be Flash.

NSC Velodrome program

Bob Williams of the National sports Center wrote:

I have attached information regarding our Future Stars Junior Cycling Program at the NSC Velodrome.

Please look it over and send it on to your riders if you feel it is appropriate.

If you would like to have a “demonstration day” at the velodrome for your team please contact me and we can set up a time.

Here’s the text of the flyer (it’s not a free activity of course):

Velodrome Cycling Program

The National Sports Center has a cycling program for you!
The Future Stars Racing Program is for riders aged 13-18 provides great conditioning for any cyclist. 

No Track Bike? No Problem!
Just bring your helmet and riding clothes. We have track bikes you can use. If you have clipless mountain bike shoes and pedals, we can put them on one of our bikes.

Future Stars Junior Racing
Future Stars classes will take place on the track Saturday mornings from 9-11 AM at the NSC Velodrome.

Our instructors will teach you the basics of track bike handling and the proper etiquette for riding on the velodrome. Future Stars Junior races will take place on the velodrome once per month on Thursday nights.

Leaders: library update (Google Drive, HPMTB Leader page)

I’ve done house cleaning on our team library, see our Leader page for links to key documents and a link to the HPMTB Google Drive shares.

At this time there are three shares, but you see different folders depending on your privileges:

  • HPMTB Board: Board documents and our archive folders
  • HPMTB Leaders: Documents for leaders only. Today that’s only our Team Manual (which needs a refresh).
  • HPMTB Public: Everyone can see these and ride leaders can edit them.

I’ve tested our site links after the refresh as an ‘incognito’ user and they seem to all work. If you find one that doesn’t email

If you want to edit something and can’t email and I’ll fix privileges.

Coaches – how to request reimbursement

Reminder to ride leaders and coaches — if you need reimbursement for expenses there’s a link on the Leaders tab of our website. We cover ride leader NICA fees and costs for training.

URL for Leaders tab:

Look for “Expense Reimbursement form”. Click on link and enter the information. Email John F the receipt and let me know if you need the money ASAP or if you can wait until I do a batch of reimbursements.

We may go all electronic this year but this is the process for the moment.
