Elite 64 | STATSports Leaderboards


Untitled_designSTATSports’ exciting partnership with Elite 64 has hit the ground running, with new leaderboards displaying performance data from some of the most talented youth players in the United States.

Global leaders in GPS tracking technology and official monitoring device of U.S. Soccer Federation, STATSports are working with US Youth Soccer to highlight all of the best performers across Elite 64, allowing players to build out their own athletic profiles based on the performance stats gathered during their Elite 64 games. Comparisons across Total Distance, High Speed Running, and High Intensity Distance will also be available throughout the season, allowing players, coaches, and scouts to track the stats across multiple key physical performance indicators, as these players compete throughout the season.

Alongside benchmarking against players of their own age group, those using STATSports’ Apex Athlete Series GPS Tracker can also compare their performance to some of the top professional soccer players in the world, including Harry Kane, Alex Morgan, Raheem Sterling and Megan Rapinoe.

The Elite 64 STATSports Leaderboards use session data from players that has been saved from matches where data has been recorded as “Gameday.”

Max Speed

Sept. 15, 2022     OcT. 14, 2022     Nov. 9, 2022  

Max speed is the maximum velocity a player can sprint in a session, measured in either meters per second (m/s), miles per hour (mph), or kilometers per hour (kph).

Max speeds are hit within the 20-meter to 40-meter distance range, and achieving a max speed at least once per week reduces the risk of hamstring injuries.

Players like Kylian Mbappe (38 kph/23.61 mph), Raheem Sterling (37.30 kph/23.18 mph), and Erling Haaland (36.04 kph/22.39 mph) are some of the fastest soccer players in the world. 

Total Distance

SEPT. 22, 2022     OCT. 19, 2022       NOV. 16, 2022  

Total Distance is a key measure of the volume of your session. Pro players typically cover between 4.35 miles to 6.84 miles during a game, depending on their position. It can be measured in meters, kilometers, miles or yards in the STATSports app.

Total Distances are very dependent on the style of play of both the team and the player. When used in conjunction with the Heat Maps, it can be a powerful metric for coaches.

Players like Alex Oxlade Chamberlain (6.82 miles), Tyler Adams (6.76 miles) and Calum Chambers (6.80 miles) have max Total Distance figures higher than most, but James Milner topped the charts in the English Premier League last year with 7.86 miles during one 90-minute game.

High Speed Running

SEPT. 29, 2022     OCT. 26, 2022       Nov. 23, 2022  

High Speed Running is the distance you have covered over 5.5 meters per second (19.8 km/h or 12.3 mph). Measured in meters or yards, the HSR distance tracks all those lung bursting runs, overlaps on the wings or tracking back to help your teammates. Pro players can tally upwards of 1,200 or more yards during a game. Again, this is dependent on tactics and the player’s position on the pitch. Some practitioners call this “explosive distance.”

Players like Raheem Sterling (1,298 yards), Phil Foden (1,119 yards), Megan Rapinoe (1,056 yards) and Harry Kane (1,211 yards) rely on this to get away from opponents and to close down players quickly in the first block.

High Intensity Distance

 Oct. 4, 2022      Nov. 2, 2022  

High Intensity distance is a STATSports metric developed to show all those hard yards players put in during a game or session. This is a combination of the player’s HSR distance and the distance covered while accelerating and decelerating. Professional players can cover 2,000 to 2,800 meters (2,187 to 3,062 yards) of HID in a game, depending on tactics and position played.

Players like Harry Kane (2,714 yards), Tyler Adams (2,428 yards) and Caden Clark (2,621 yards) post very high figures in this metric.  That combination of High-Speed Running coupled with accelerations and decelerations distance is a great measurement of work rate.

Distance Per Minute

NOV. 30, 2022  

Distance Per Minute is the distance traveled by the player divided by the time taken.  Our display is in yards per minute. The data is from match recorded sessions. If the player has played in more than one match, the max value out of the matches is used for the leaderboards. Distance Per Minute is often used to show how hard a player is working.  Certain positions will cover more ground. 

A box-to-box midfielder or a wingback in a 5-3-2 formation will be moving around the pitch more often and generally recording a higher value. Tyler Adams' Distance Per Minute comes in at an impressive 135 yards per minute.  His busy style of play ensures he’s constantly on the move. Alex Morgan is another ambassador who is often on the move. Recording 127 yards per minute, she shows no signs of a slow-down.
