INTRODUCING
You can’t improve what you don’t measure, which is why we’ve
created ShotTracker; the wearable tech that automatically tracks
shot attempts, makes and misses.
SHOTTRACKER

Introducing ShotTracker, a wrist sensor, net sensor and an app. ShotTracker is the first piece of affordable, wearable tech for basketball players who want to improve their shooting. ShotTracker automatically tracks shot attempts, makes, and misses. Without getting into all the hardware/software details (though we’d love to get our geek on and talk about BlueTooth Low Energy, sensors, and accelerometer data if you’re really interested!), here’s what you need to know: The net sensor is weather resistant. The wrist sensor weighs less than .4 oz. And, the app works for iPhone and Android.

And, speaking of the app...
To keep practice fun, and to add some extra motivation, the ShotTracker app will include leaderboards and challenges. See how you stack up against your friends and where you rank on the global leaderboard. Or, challenge your buddies to a shooting contest. Because ShotTracker automates tracking makes and misses, you can see who’s really got game ... and who might be stretching the truth.

It’s simple. Just place the net through each of the Net Senor guide-arms and secure the velcro strap.
ShotTracker works on all Bluetooth Low Energy enabled iOS devices and select Android devices.
ShotTracker is for everyone from youngsters just discovering the love of the game, student-athletes trying to earn more playing time, aspiring All-Stars, and pick-up gamers who just want to keep their skills sharp.
Yes! The net sensor is weather-resistant.
Yes! ShotTracker can find you on the court, determine the exact location that you are shooting from, and keep track of your shooting statistics.
If you’re a coach or an athletic director, you can purchase enough ShotTracker wrist devices for your whole team. The Coaches Portal allows you to track each player’s progress, statistics, and hours as they work to perfect their shot. Individual players can download the app on their smartphone to track their personal stats. Future versions of ShotTracker will accomodate team practices.
No, you do not need to wear a shooting sleeve. The ShotTracker Wrist Sensor, which is about the size of a quarter and weighs less than an ounce, can also be worn on the wrist via wristband or super-lightweight wrist-strap.
Yes, the Wrist Sensor must be worn on the shooting arm, but it is so light that the shooter cannot even feel it. We are fashion agnostic, so the sensor can be worn with a wristband, wrist-wrap, and full or 1/4 sleeve - your choice.
All you need is one Net Sensor per net and one ball. Each player will wear a Wrist Sensor and their shooting statistics can be tracked via the Coaches Portal App or by each individual player’s mobile device.
We initially set out to design and build ShotTracker to be used for repetitive shooting. And right now, that is it’s primary use case. However, during testing, we found that our algorithms for detecting a shot were strong enough to rule out most false positives generated by scrimmage play, including pump fakes/shot fakes and shot blocks. We are still working on removing false positives from the over-head pass/catch. Once we do that, ShotTracker will be ready for full scrimmage play.
Yes. The Net Sensor works on all types of basketball nets, including chain nets! The Net Sensor is able to be calibrated to accurately detect Shot Makes on a variety of Nets including chain nets!
Yes. Two ShotTrackers, one on each wrist, can be worn simultaneously to detect shots made with the left hand and right hand.
Yes. ShotTracker is not able to detect all under-hand layups at this time, but it is able to detect over-hand law-ups, floater shots, and dunks!
