Jack Rolfe will be in conversation with Amber Luzar, performance analyst, England and Great Britain

As we are in a strange time without any hockey matches, let’s try to learn some specific things about video analysis from Amber Luzar.

Since 2012 Amber Luzar worked with Reading Football Club as Academy and First Team performance analyst. She was starting to provide pre-match opposition analysis and post-match statistics. Film matches from U16 – 1st Team. Live to code for U16 – U18’s and providing feedback sessions to staff and players. She was involved in the club’s recruitment department, helping the scouting network.

After that, she provided live matchday coding and pre and post-match analysis of all 1st team performances. She produced detailed videos and statistical reports of the opposition and in-depth post-match reports of the match performance. She conducted pre- and post-match feedback sessions for both coaching staff and players.

Since 2014 Amber starts to work with England and Great Britain Hockey as a performance analyst.

Luzar had no hockey background and no intention of moving into the sport but, off the cuff, she landed the role and picked up the quirks of the job quickly. “It’s surprisingly similar to football, though hockey is an awful lot faster,” she says. “Hockey is massively impressive. The more you watch it, the more you realise how skillful it is. But I’m going to sit on the fence on this one!”
