We designed Hoop Tracker, first and foremost, as an
improvement device. In order to develop an all around shot, players need
to work all areas of the floor. Sadly, even many NBA players never develop
great shooting skills like excellent free throws or a solid jump shot. We've learned
players tend to over develop in certain areas while under developing in
others because it's human nature to go to what you're most comfortable or
have the most success with. This leads to a cycle resulting in over
practicing in some areas while not practicing enough in others.
The most efficient way to improve at anything is having a plan or program.
Hoop Tracker comes pre-programmed with several shooting programs depending
on what the players position or goal is. In short, the locations are
pre-determined and the player simply follows the shooting program or game.
This insures the player works all areas of the floor and allows tracking
of every area on the court. More shooting programs will available for download as well from www.HoopTracker.com.
The watch will track your overall shooting percentage if you don't follow the shooting program but in order to receive detailed data on shooting locations you should follow the program you selected. You can also customize your own shooting program.
