Swish Hoop® will start selling its three innovative, patented and patent-pending basketball shot training products within the next year. The Swish Hoop® Shot Monitor is a highly accurate, wireless, all-weather sensor that requires no charging. It attaches to a basketball net using a telescopic installation tool and measures makes, misses and swishes from one or more players during practice sessions.
It includes the Swish Hoop® Player App available on Android and iPhone that communicate with the sensor and have a rich array of features for reviewing stats, awarding achievement badges, compiling leaderboards and social-network sharing of shots and videos.
Its automated shot-by-shot video breakdown feature is the only system that automatically extracts video snippets that are associated with individual shots, eliminating the need for searching through hours of video footage to review a particular shot.
The Swish Hoop® Personal Scoreboard is a wireless, full-color-LED scoreboard that may be positioned courtside to feed back shooting stats and streaks and workout directions in real time.
The Swish Hoop® Coach's App allows coaches to organize their teams, give assignments and monitor stats and videos collected by the Player App for each of their players. It also encourages competition amongst players to climb weekly team leaderboards and monitor shooting stats of their teammates. The Coach's app is a powerful tool for coaches, because it allows them to monitor players 24/7 and effectively coach their players development from home.
Swish Hoop® will demonstrate their products at the HYPE Sports Innovation Global event taking place alongside the upcoming NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles in February, 2018.
