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 simple, objective, and relevant, creating healthy competition among athletes at every level and encouraging improvement.
“We are excited to partner with WSGBCA and its coaches to support girls basketball programs and player development across the state,” said Todd Young, founder and CEO of Ballogy. “We want to continue to inspire growth and development in all players seeking to reach the next level of the game.”
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. Gamification in the app encourages healthy competition among teammates as they move up the ranks of the leaderboard with every shot making assessment they take.
