ABSTRACT THE GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM IS A COMMONLY USED TECHNOLOGY WITHIN SPORTS PERFORMANCE TO ASSESS THE MOVEMENT PATTERNS OF ATHLETES DURING BOTH COMPETITION AND TRAINING. THE DATA DERIVED FROM THIS SYSTEM CAN BE USED TO GAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE DEMANDS OF BOTH MATCH PLAY AND INDIVIDUAL TRAINING DRILLS. THESE DATA CAN BE SUBSEQUENTLY USED TO DEVISE PRE-SEASON TRAINING PROGRAMS. A SYSTEMATIC 7-STEP APPROACH HAS BEEN OUTLINED WITHIN THIS ARTICLE TO AID PRACTITIONERS WITH THIS PROCESS.
