Data Entry Forms
Once you hit the yellow plus button you can then select from the available list, what type of entry you would like to add.
Volleyball/Beach Volleyball have 2 forms:
- Wellness - your daily monitoring for things like sleep & soreness. You only need to do this once per day. We recommend completing it each morning as early as you can after waking up.
- Training Log - this is for your training data. We recommend completing it after each session.
This is where you can capture your training completed each day. Volleyball has changed to a sessional entry - complete a Session entry after each training session.

Volleyball athletes have two questions: Mood and Energy
Beach Volleyball athletes have three: Mood, Stress and Fatigue
Use the sliders to enter how you feel. There is no quick and easy way to gauge such a range of emotions, as everyone, may be feeling many emotions at once, to differing degrees. If you have any concerns you should share them with your coach/psychologist.
Any additional comments you think might be useful
Dashboards bring your data to life and can provide you with some great insights to your training and wellness.

Summary Stats – over the last month or week see what you have achieved for that period.
Training Loads – view your last 7 days training and previous rolling weekly training loads.
