AUSTIN, Texas--(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 Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC) to offer Ballogy to its coaches and teams statewide.
“When we looked at Ballogy’s category leading application, it was clear they were a perfect fit as our Official Player Development and Assessment partner,” said Rick Sherley, executive director of the TABC. “Our Texas coaches all want to be able to maximize their team’s development and success and Ballogy can help them do that with ease.”
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.
“Our headquarters are in Texas and we are excited to be partnering with the TABC 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.”
