AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ballogy Inc., the innovative software company revolutionizing the way youth and amateur athletes prepare for their sports, today announced the launch of the Ballogy™ Skills Assessment (BSA), a basketball shooting drill designed to assess a player’s shooting skills and assign a certified score based on an objective testing methodology.
“Ballogy has created the first universal skills measure for basketball coaching, recruiting and scouting,” said Indiana University Associate Head Coach Dane Fife. “We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to incorporate BSA scoring into our program standard for player recruitment.”
The Ballogy Skills Assessment is the result of extensive research and feedback gathered from middle, high school and college level coaches and athletes. The assessment consists of 100 shot attempts, challenging players to complete free throws, short, medium and long range shots from various locations within a set time limit. Test video is captured in the Ballogy app and reviewed, verified and scored by Ballogy certified trainers. The resulting Ballogy score is saved in player profiles for increased visibility and exposure to college coaches. The main areas to consider are skill, shot consistency and stamina.

The “BSA Prep” provides athletes with step-by-step instructions and exercises that will prepare them to achieve the highest possible score on the BSA.
