Basketball Coaches Association of Tennessee Adds Ballogy As Strategic Technology Partner
Tennessee Coaches to Track Player Development and Overall Team Progress Using Ballogy’s Validated Data-Driven Approach
AUSTIN, TX – January 26, 2022 – Ballogy Inc., the industry standard for youth athletic skills measurement and tracking and leading exposure platform for athletes aspiring to get to the next level in their sport, announced today that it is partnering with the Basketball Coaches Association of Tennessee (BCAT)) to offer Ballogy’s shooting assessment and development mobile platform to coaches and programs throughout the state.
“Ballogy has developed something incredibly powerful to help our coaches maximize their team’s development and success in a whole new way,” said Bruce Slatten, director of BCAT. “We are extremely excited to announce them as our Official Player Development and Assessment partner.”
The Ballogy Skills Assessment (BSA), a 10 minute, 100 shot test administered exclusively on the Ballogy app, is the result of extensive research and feedback gathered from middle school, high school, and college-level coaches and athletes. The BSA challenges players to make free throws, short-range, midrange, and long-range shots from various locations at game speed. Video of the test is captured in the Ballogy app and reviewed, verified, and scored by Ballogy. The resulting verified score provides key points of data for shooting evaluations.
In preparation for the Ballogy Skills Assessment, Ballogy offers a development plan for all athletes at any stage in their basketball journey. The Ballogy curriculum includes beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of development. Each level is composed of drills that apply to the skill level and suggested shot distance of the athlete. Coaches have the ability to gamify their practices utilizing the drills on the Ballogy app, encouraging healthy competition among teammates as players move up the ranks of the leaderboard.
“We are thrilled to partner with BCAT and its members to help their coaches, teams and players quantify their progress in-game and out,” said Todd Young, founder and CEO of Ballogy. “As the leading athletic skills measurement, tracking, and exposure platform, our mission is to continue to inspire growth and development in all their players seeking to reach the next level of their sport.”
Ballogy is an innovative software company revolutionizing the way youth and amateur athletes prepare for their sports. Ballogy’s unique performance tracking and analysis app and built-in certified testing program, enable young athletes to measure and evaluate their athletic development and improve their skills at every level of the game.
