One year ago, four young entrepeneurs with a passion for basketball set out to create the first ever basketball training mobile application. The only goal: bring basketball into the 21st century by making a clear, structured skill development program that is easy to use for all basketball players and coaches. Finally, in early 2012 OneBasketball app was launched on the Apple App Store.
Today though, we came across a review for the OneBasketball app that not only encapsulates the reason the app was developed in the first place but it also paints a picture of all the realistic benefits the app can and already has delivered. The review comes from a German youth basketball coach. We will let his words tell the rest of the story:
Basketball App …. Finally
by RitzBBall on Thursday, February 16 2012 version 1.0
“I’ve been a player and a coach for more years than I’d like to admit. I’ve played and coached at almost every level. .. and I’ve coached hundreds of players in the USA and in Europe. Yet I am I am constantly looking for ways to improve my players and my coaching abilities. I have designed many of my own drills and my own practice planners. I have made my own practice videos…. but…. that is “Old-School” …. This App is “Now” …. The Drills are good and well executed… It covers many skill areas as well as basketball-specific conditioning. Many of Drills are similar to those I already use, but it gives me the opportunity to actually show players what I want from them … and that is great … for me because sometimes the mind is willing but the legs are gone… Lastly, I can’t count the number of times a player has asked… Hey Coach can you give me some stuff to work on over the break…?” For that, this App is right on time. I recommend it for any Coach or Player…. Ritz Ingram”
OneBasketball app is designed to help coaches and players bridge the gap that usually occurs when the summer comes around. Coaches can’t work with their players for a number of reasons (NCAA rules, distance/travel, AAU). This leaves the player unsure of what needs to be done in order to improve for next season. This is a huge problem for youth basketball skill development. But luckily “there is an app for that.” OneBasketball app is affordable (currently $2.99), has video demonstrations and text descriptions of all 140 drills, and gives the user 16 progressive workouts to build the complete player. In addition, the app offers an unprecedented amount of feedback to the user through the Shot Tracker functionality which lets you store you makes and misses for each drill. Ritz Ingram isn’t the only coach, player, parent who has rated our app with 5 stars. Please go to the iTunes App Store
