Make sports exercises with graphics schemes, a simple program to create sports exercises, drawing drills and trainings, tutorials, techniques and tactics
GESTICS is a system for the construction of sports exercises, drills, sports drills and trainings, tutorials, techniques and tactics mainly for team sports, but also for individual sports and MOVEMENT AND SPORTS GAMES FOR KIDS.
GESTICS stands for Graphics Sports Training Exercises - Images Coaching System.
GESTICS was designed and created by the experiences of the coaches for coaches.
GESTICS allows you to create graphic images in color or black and white drawings and complete training sessions, using playing fields, with views of both two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) models of the players divided and organized into libraries that analyze and represent the various situations and the fundamentals of the game. In volleyball, for example, we find in addition to dozens of fields many models of players standing at the service, receiving, dribbling, attacking, at wall or in defense.
GESTICS for every sport and every game situations provides models of players with a view from the front, back, side, front and oblique oblique behind that will allow us to represent exercises, exercises and games in different angles. For each sport will also find a whole range of generic accessories (hurdles, hoops, sticks, bollards, cones, etc..) And specific (balls, goal, doors, baskets, barriers, flags, stairs, etc..) As well as other useful accessories in training and exercises (benches, carpets, etc..).
GESTICS provides the players in the various libraries, fields, and accessories that are all in vector format, this means that even if you magnify the image, to project it on a big screen, the resolution is always maximum, preventing see that ugly pixelated which makes the grainy images and check all small squares.
GESTICS allows you to move, color, rotate and resize at will any item or accessory, T-shirts and shorts of the players, as well as create custom libraries to be reused in other projects.
GESTICS allows you to print your own cards workout on paper in any format, export your work in PDF or image format (jpg, png, gif, etc..), Save and reuse at a later time.
GESTICS born with an idea of simplicity that allows us to focus on the job rather than having to waste whole days to learn a new computer program.
GESTICS can be used by anyone who can use an Office software (LibreOffice / OpenOffice), even with only a basic knowledge. With gestic anyone can now create their own cards of sports exercise, trainings and tutorials.
GESTICS it is installed as an extension in LibreOffice / OpenOffice and allows you to use all the functions that this wonderful program provides. If we have not yet installed this software, no problem, it is an open source software, licensed under the GNU LGPL, Multilingual (more than 50 languages around the world) that you can download, install and use for free at your own leisure. Libreoffice / Openoffice are complete suite of programs for writing, drawing, presentations, etc.. Although with very few differences, we recommend the use of Libreoffice. The latest version can be downloaded from the official international website:
GESTICS is multilingual and integrates seamlessly within LibreOffice / OpenOffice. In addition GESTICS is modular, meaning that you can buy separate packages that will fit once installed; For example you can buy the soccer package that includes everything needed to create their own jobs. But if later the user wants to create futsal sports exercise or require additional models of players, no problem, there are additional modules at a reduced cost that install only futsal fields, or hundreds of models of players and goalkeepers.
GESTICS can be used by the word processor (Writer) and through the presentation program (Impress), but the program better and more suitable for the purpose is surely the design (Draw)

Gianpaolo Lucatti, a physical education teacher, graduated first in accounting and then in motor sciences, with honors at the ISEF in Florence in 1990. He holds several patents and has served as an instructor, in many national sports disciplines.
He has carried out activities throughout the field, from kindergarten children, 4-6 years old, up to gentle gymnastics for the elderly, passing through fitness, aerobics, bodybuilding, football, artistic gymnastics, volleyball, Olympic Centers, Training Centers and Ludico Motors, Playsport, Fantathlon, swimming, assistant bathers, and other related activities. He has had teaching experiences at public schools, private gyms, in prison, in swimming pools, at summer solar camps, etc. He has always tried to make his best duty as an educator and animator, as a teacher and coach, aware that everything he can teach his students is only a small part of what the students themselves can teach him.
Since 1995, he has also a great passion for computer science, in particular for open source software (Gnu/Linux, LibreOffice, The Gimp, Inkscape, etc.) and for programming, as well as for the creation of Web Sites. One thing in particular, however, despite having tried several times, has never succeeded too well: to realize the drawings of the exercises that he carefully organized and cataloged in different collections. As the saying goes: “an image is worth a thousand words”
Hence the idea of GESTICS, create a program that would allow even those who do not know how to draw to create images for sports exercises, game and training schemes, technical and tactical exercises. Looking on the internet you can find something similar, there are several, more or less complicated, but all those I found have been made in my opinion in a fairly manned way and with reduced functionality, since they were programmed from the beginning and not starting from a base of acquired and shared features.
The main idea was that the software was simple to use, it could be used on all operating systems, in all languages and that it had features superior to those of other software that were already present. As happens in the open source software, it was not necessary to start from scratch, but from the point where others had already arrived. No need to reinvent the wheel!!!
There is already a magnificent program that more than anyone using a computer can be used regularly, is called LibreOffice. It can be installed on any computer, it is multilingual, it is simple, it has very high graphic features, it is an open source software, released under the GNU LGPL license, multilingual (over 50 languages worldwide) that you can download, install and use for free at will.
Together with a group of small but large designers, over thirty boys with high graphic qualities, several coaches have been contacted and together we have analyzed the various sports and identified the fundamentals of the game and the various technical gestures that are normally found in a particular sport. Then we called the players from each sport and took photos of the technical gestures in the various angles necessary for a global view of the field. From the photos we reproduced all the drawings. We have identified and designed for each sport all the views of the field and the accessories necessary for training, both generic and specific. All drawings created in vector format have been packaged and grouped into galleries, ready to be used by anyone.
Then over time we moved on to another software for the realization of 3D models, that is, three-dimensional models, still an opensource Blender software that is Free Software. ... and many other benefits have been added to the initial program. We are still making changes, improvements and new features, new sports, new models, new features that make GESTICS a really useful software for all coaches and teachers.
A work done with great passion and care by a team of many people. A sincere thanks to everyone not only for the commitment, but also for the harmony and fun that accompanied us in this project.
