The purpose of this study was to determine if the reviewing of game film had a significant effect on the results of the Goucher Men’s Soccer team throughout the 2014 season. The researcher used measurements in the effort to see if there were significant differences on results on weeks when video analysis was utilized and weeks when video analysis was not utilized. The measurement tools that were used were box score statistics: wins, goals scored, goals against, shots, shots on goal, assists, corner kicks, and saves. A series of t-tests were run to examine any differences in game statistics based on whether game film was watched. The results indicated there were no significant differences in statistics and results based on whether video analysis was conducted. It would be valuable to continue research on video analysis and its importance in sports especially at higher levels where more resources are available.
