About

My story began 3 years ago with a simple question, "How many kids playing basketball use a training device to help with shooting?". When that answer came back practically zero, I went on a quest to create a device with a single-minded purpose of getting it into the hands of as many kids as possible.  Fueling my drive is my love for this game and the desire to contribute to something that brought me much joy growing up.  What I came up with is a patented breakthrough design that can change shooting practice forever, with breakthroughs in CONVENIENCE, EFFECTIVENESS and VALUE.

 

 

We won't make unproven claims like being the world fastest manual ball return, but have you seen anything that can return a basketball faster?

The opening on iBallReturn was designed to narrow a shooter’s focus to shooting perfect, dead-center shots. The goal is to not touch any of the flaps on your shots. The intention is that the more perfect you can be during practice, the better off you will be during game time.

 

Even though our retail price ($189) offers the most features for substantially less, we are giving KickStarter backers AN ADDITIONAL 26% - 48% OFF retail as our way of saying "HELLO WORLD, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!".

 

 

Risks and challenges

Although we try to be conservative in our lead time for delivery, below are some of the inherent risk with see in bringing iBallReturn to market.

Manufacturing - creating tooling is a complex and expensive process. No one can fully anticipate all the risk and challenges of full scale manufacturing. To minimize most of these risks, we are working with a reputable team with 20 years of experience in the consumer market industry.

Design Tweaks - our final product may not look completely like the prototype. Whatever minor changes we make to the design is done with the intention of delivering the highest quality and best performing product to the consumer.

If any unexpected delays happen to take place during any stage of the process, we promise to be as transparent as possible so everyone know what to expect.
