Leaders in Sport today announced an exciting new partnership with Zone7, the AI-driven human performance platform, as one of the Official Main Partners of the Leaders Performance Institute 

Zone7 will work with Leaders in Sport to educate members of the Leaders Performance Institute about best practices for AI application in the field of injury risk forecasting. The Leaders Performance Institute is an unrivalled network of members of the world’s high-performance community such as, Head Coaches, High Performance Managers, Directors of Player Development and more, who have made an intentional commitment to continuous improvement by sharing insights and challenging thinking. 

Director of Membership, Oliver Escritt said: Here at Leaders Performance Institute, we are constantly looking to connect our members with partners that innovate and provide solutions that help athletes reach the peak of their performance. The AI that Zone7 has developed is incredibly exciting as they have taken something that was previously subjective and created a way for athletes and coaches to get valuable insight into their performance. Zone7 are committed to the same ethos as Leaders, in enabling athletes and practitioners to safely reach their full potential. We’re excited to work with Zone7, and share their innovative approach to data collection, intelligence, and insight, through content collaboration, and shared learning experiences and opportunities. 

Using proprietary artificial intelligence, Zone7 is helping teams and leagues across the EPL, MLS, NFL, NBA, La Liga, rugby and cycling reduce athlete injury risk, attain peak performance, and secure more value from investments in data collection tools. The platform ingests all forms of game day, training, medical and performance datasets to identify risk patterns that cannot be detected through manual or automated analysis and provide tangible intervention suggestions for performance professionals. These insights, which can be tailored to individual athletes, coaching preferences, and an organization’s level of risk-aversion, generate accurate and timely alerts for up to 75% of preventable injuries in client engagements. 

“The Leaders Performance Institute is the perfect partner for Zone7 as we continue growing our presence across the sports industry,” said Tal Brown, CEO and Co-Founder. “Athlete wellbeing and resiliency has never been more critical to competitive and bottom-line success. By working with Leaders we’re able to share AI best practices in performance management with a wide range of decorated professionals.
