Partnership Helps Michigan Coaches, Teams and Players Quantify Their Progress in-game and out
AUSTIN, Texas, October 21, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 Michigan (BCAM) to offer Ballogy Pro to its coaches and teams statewide.
Ballogy Pro includes the Ballogy Skills Assessment (BSA) which is the industry’s first objective skills metric that enables coaches to track their players’ development and overall team progress with ease via the Ballogy app, using a validated data-driven approach.
"We’ve found that many coaches are challenged to quantify their team’s collective progress, as well as each individual’s skill development outside of in-game stats," said Dan Young, executive director of BCAM. "We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Ballogy to help bridge this gap."
The Ballogy Skills Assessment is the result of extensive research and feedback gathered from middle school, high school, and college-level coaches and athletes. The assessment consists of 100 shot attempts, challenging players to make free throws, short-range, midrange, and long-range shots from various locations within a set time limit. Video of the test is captured in the Ballogy app and reviewed, verified, and scored by Ballogy Certified Coaches. The score that is generated from the BSA is useful, simple, objective, and relevant, creating healthy competition among athletes at every level and encouraging improvement.
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 participant.
With the Ballogy platform BCAM coaches will:
Maximize team development by fostering healthy competition among teammates
Establish a baseline score for each player to help you make informed coaching decisions
Highlight areas of focus to drive maximum improvement
Provide your players with a whole new level of exposure and visibility to the next level.
