The ShotTracker wearable offers up real-time basketball performance statistics, capturing  player movement,  ball movement and court location. A small wearable is placed on the player’s shoe – which communicates with sensors placed around the court. The ShotTracker software can also track player possession of the ball, passes and more.

Spalding and ShotTracker want coaches and players to use this technology to improve their performance and game strategy through identifying strengths and weaknesses – and then measuring improvements.
