Both of the Pat & Matt Creative Co-Founds have been involved in the sport of rowing for a number of years, as both athletes and coaches. During this time they have realized that there is a common frustration amongst coaches and athletes for the method of calculating and distributing time trial and race results.
Pat & Matt Creative decided to solve this problem by designing and developing an app to speed up and simplify the time trial result process.
A PHP database is being used to run the back-end of the app. An API is currently being developed to sync the back-end and front-end. This also allows for the majority of the apps functionality to be server-side, reducing battery drain and reducing slowing down the device.
Crew Watch is an app made by rowers for rowers that aims to solve many of the common struggles associated with coaching rowing.
The Crew Watch team is comprised of Matthew Fournier and Patrick McVey, who have both been heavily involved in the Canadian rowing community for the past twelve years, as both athletes and coaches. During this times they’ve been a part of multiple teams and have been coached by some of the best coaches in North America. It came as a surprise when realizing that even these elite coaches have many of the same problems as local volunteer coaches. Wasting hours each day on managing athlete training and performance data. Valuable time which could be better spent focusing on their athletes.
