The Polar Code criterium is used the help the Coach determine if the Referees are uploading their heart rate files systematically and are wearing their tracker during all training sessions or matches.
The Training Quality Report will inspect every day in the selected 28 day period individually.
When the day contains a rest session, it will not be taken into account.
When the day contains a match, it will not be taken into account if the Referee has one of the following roles in the match:
- 4th official
- 5th official
- 6th official
- Assistant VAR
When the day contains a training session or a group training session, it will not be taken into account if one of the following conditions are met:
- The activity during the training session is Swimming
- The primary aim is one of the following:
- Injury Prevention
- Overnight Stays
- Rehabilitation Program
- Travel Time
- Strengthening Program
At the end of the selected 28 day period, the color code is determined based on how many of the remaining sessions have a heart rate data:
- Green: Less than 2 remaining sessions have heart rate data
- Yellow: More than 75% of the remaining sessions have heart rate data
- Red: Less than 75% of the remaining sessions have heart rate data
Checking Polar Code
When you want to know more about why a certain color code has been assigned for Polar Code or want to check the reasoning behind the outcome you can either filter some individual reports or open an individual report.
On the Polar codes block click the information icon. This will open a modal, giving you more information about the color code.
In the example above, there were 14 remaining training sessions in the selected 28 day period.
Out of those 14 training sessions only 11 had a primary aim set, while 3 did not have a primary aim.
In this case, the Referee received a yellow color for TSL Code. The remaining sessions that did not have a heart rate data are more than the threshold of 2, causing the Referee to not receive a green code. However, more than 75% of the remaining sessions did have a primary aims. Thus, the Referee does not get red but rather a yellow code.
