Home: Welcome
Structured Approach

Using technology with emphasis on  proven shooting mechanics!

Home: Service

Close attention is paid to proper shooting mechanics.  We emphasize the importance of targeting, stance/alignment/balance, leg action, hand placement, shot path, guide hand involvement, elbow position, shot arc, backspin and follow-through.   We then move to maximizing shooting reps in order to establish muscle memory for the proper motion.  

Smart Ball Technology

Using the 94Fifty smart ball, iPad, AppleTV, video projector,13-foot projection screen and sound system, you get  immediate feedback on shot arc, shot speed (time taken from catch to release) and backspin.  The Smart Net and HomeCourt track all makes/misses.

Repetition & Analysis

"You can't improve upon something you don't measure!"

One feature of the Basketball Barn that is difficult to find in other facilities is the dedicated high-tech environment which allows for uninterrupted focus on achieving large number of shooting repetitions.   Reps are accomplished using  two Shoot Away Guns, Homecourt and the 94Fifty Smart Ball.   The complete training session is recorded using the HomeCourt  iPhone app.   All makes/misses are plotted with percentages and a separate video is created showing the shooter's longest streak.  All 94Fifty smart ball data (# of shots taken and shot arc) is displayed in real time on a 13 ft projection screen and audio feedback for shot arc is provided over a large speaker for quick analysis and adjustments.
