Polar and England Hockey 2014

Polar, the global leaders in heart rate monitoring, have announced the renewal of their partnership with England Hockey and Great Britain Hockey.

This is the eighth year that Polar will be ‘The Official Supplier of Heart Rate Monitors to England Hockey’ and ‘The Official Supplier of Heart Rate Monitors to Great Britain Hockey’.

The squads have prepared for a number of National and Olympic events using Polar as an integral part of their training and the partnership will continue to see the men’s and women’s teams using both individual heart rate monitors and also team systems.

Great Britain’s Men’s Hockey Head Coach, Bobby Crutchley said, “Our coaches use Polar to monitor strength and conditioning sessions in order to gain a unique and in-depth insight into the fitness capabilities of our squads. The system is a great way for optimising and adjusting training intensities for the players, as coaches can record and study the fitness data during a training session or throughout a match”.

By collecting and analysing data during training and games, heart rate based monitoring allows coaches to make informed decisions about the physical state of their players.

Anyone, at any level in the sport, can benefit from training with a Polar heart rate monitor.
