Within Division III, PlaySight also works with CMS, Trinity College, Bowdoin, Colby and Carnegie Mellon.
The Yellow Jackets plan to utilize PlaySight across several sports, including basketball and volleyball. “We are excited to partner with PlaySight to enhance our team evaluation and performance,” said Athletic Director Kris Diaz. “The ability to utilize PlaySight for games and daily practice will be an added benefit to our teams, coaches and players.

Team performance, athlete improvement, coaching efficiency and broadcast production are a few of the reasons why schools are investing in sports video technology right now. “PlaySight will give our alumni, fans and future student-athletes the opportunity to watch each of our home contests with the latest technology,” said Sports and Media Information Director Jeff Miller.
“PlaySight will be a valuable tool in our gym on a daily basis,” said Volleyball Head Coach Kacie Ehinger. “Having immediate video playback during drills will be beneficial for the development of our student athletes.”
“Video is huge for our program,” stated Head Women’s Basketball Coach Cheri Harrer. “We videotape all of our early season practices but do it less during the season with our game footage. Now with PlaySight, we plan to use more practice video since we don’t have to set up a camera each day.”
