The Edmonds School District Joins Forces with Athlete Intelligence to Provide All Football Programs with Head Impact Monitoring Systems

In the heart of Edmonds School District, a groundbreaking initiative is underway, poised to transform the landscape of high school football. Picture a future where safety and performance seamlessly converge on the gridiron, enhancing the game for players and instilling confidence in parents and coaches alike. The pulse of excitement is palpable, and it’s all thanks to the partnership between Athlete Intelligence and the Edmonds School District. With the Edmonds School District Board’s approval, a visionary 4-year subscription to the cutting-edge Athlete Intelligence system has been secured for all four high school football teams within the district.

The decision to implement this state-of-the-art system reflects the district’s dedication to staying at the forefront of sports safety. By integrating the Athlete Intelligence Head Impact Monitoring System into their programs, Edmonds School District aims to enhance the monitoring and management of head injuries, thereby ensuring a safer environment for student-athletes participating in football.

CUE+ SensorAthlete Intelligence stands at the forefront of innovation in sports technology, specifically designed to monitor head impacts and track workload metrics. The seamless integration of this system into high school football programs has the potential to redefine safety standards and elevate the playing experience for every athlete involved. The Athlete Intelligence system combines state-of-the-art wearable devices and advanced analytics to monitor head impacts during gameplay. The data collected provides real-time insights into the force and frequency of impacts, allowing coaches and athletic training staff to make informed decisions on player safety.

“We’re thrilled to see this partnership come to fruition and have the opportunity to work with all four high schools that make up the Edmonds School District,” says Andrew Golden, Director of Business Operations for Athlete Intelligence. “It’s been incredible to see the district’s dedication to player safety and the investment they are willing to make to provide a highly competitive, but also safe environment for all participants,” Golden added.

Like many programs, the Edmonds School District was not aware of Athlete Intelligence or head impact monitoring technology prior to connecting with the Athlete Intelligence team. Upon learning more and seeing a live demo, it became very clear how head impact monitoring technology will have a direct effect on player performance and safety. This now became something that the Edmonds School District felt they needed and were motivated to find a path to implement it.

This groundbreaking technology not only focuses on injury prevention but also offers a comprehensive performance-tracking feature. Coaches can delve into player metrics, identifying strengths and areas for technique improvement, fostering a data-driven approach to training and strategy development.

This innovative system utilizes wearable sensors embedded within athletes’ helmets to track and analyze head impacts during practices and games. Coaches and athletic trainers receive instant alerts when a significant impact occurs, allowing for immediate evaluation and appropriate action. Moreover, the system provides valuable data insights that can inform training strategies, identify trends, and contribute to efforts aimed at reducing the risk of head injuries.

With the Edmonds School District Board’s approval and passing of the Tech Levy, the program is set to begin in the Fall of 2024. With its passing, every high school football team in the district will have access to the Athlete Intelligence system, setting a new standard for safety and performance in high school sports.
