Welcome | Middle School SUMMER STRENGTH/SPEED DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM 2023 | Blaine Bengal High School Football

Timberwolves & Lynx Basketball Academy

The software uses artificial intelligence (ai) in combination with the camera on your device to capture and analyze your shooting and dribbling.  Offering training and workouts that seem more like video games than drills.

Watch the film here.

Download the app here.

Requirements: an iPhone or iPad and a basketball for dribbling drills. 
Shooting analysis requires the device in a location (preferably behind the shooter) to see the basket and the shooter at the free throw distance for AI to set the measurements.

Monthly fee may be required for features.

Coach G (Thomas Gorrilla) offers personalized training via video.  Here is a training video with several skills kids can work on at home:
