AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ballogy Inc.,the leading skills development and assessment mobile app for youth and amateur basketball players and coaches, announced today a partnership with Shoot-A-Way, the creators of the number one basketball shooting machine in the world.
The Gun 12K by Shoot-A-Way now comes programmed with the same accredited drills offered in Ballogy’s monthly in-app training and development curriculum and endorsed by the National High School Basketball Coaches Association (NHSBCA). The program is designed to promote healthy competition, accountability, and overall skill development and is offered for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of development.

By taking the BSA, players have an opportunity to gain exposure with over 1,600 NCAA, NAIA, and Junior College programs via a monthly top performers report. In order to get an official score athletes must record video of their test submission on the Ballogy app.
