The invention's unique design provides its users with a highly effective and detailed mechanism through which to receive constructive and informative feedback on various aspects of their basketball jump shots.
The Assistant Coach leverages today’s technology to provide its users with specific instruction on the amount of force needed and the correct grip and release to use when executing a basketball jump shot. The product is suited for effective use by players of all ages. Additionally, the Assistant Coach’s proprietary features enable it to serve as a considerably valuable teaching tool for basketball coaches. It will also provide the opportunity for significant improvement in performance for its users, thereby enhancing their enjoyment of the sport.
The Assistant Coach is also in Patent Pending status within the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
