Head Coach of the Philadelphia AAAA District XII Champions, Olney Charter High School, reviews the Ball Coach radar
Coaches in multiple sports have found the value of adding speed measurements into practice as a powerful training aid for their players and coaching methods. Unlike the bulkier and more expensive radar guns of the past, used exclusively by scouts to measure fastball velocity, the Ball Coach radar was designed as a training tool for coaches and athletes. It is just as accurate within 120 feet of range on a baseball, and its discreet size makes it ideal for measuring youth and professional athletes without affecting behavior.
The Ball Coach radar provides accurate speed measurements that have allowed players to develop a new level of confidence in hopes of improving their skills over time. Confidence is an acquired skill that is developed over time, but is key when training and performing.
Here is some feedback we received from Olney Charter High School head coach, Daniel Karlyn, and his use of the Ball Coach radar at practice with his players. He guided his team last season to the 2016 AAAA District XII and Public League Championship.
“The Ball Coach radar has been a great benefit to my baseball program. Running an inner city program that has a limited budget, I have been looking for a product that helps me measure my pitchers velocity so I could help them get recruited into colleges. Expensive radar guns have never been an option for me until I came across Pocket Radar. Their reasonably priced tool allows me to gauge my pitchers velocity and progress. It also allows me to give accurate velocity numbers to college coaches when I reach out to them about one of my players. I love the size of the unit and the tripod accessory that allows you to set the Ball Coach radar up almost anywhere. The feature that allows you to track pitch velocity hands free especially comes in handy when I want to log information at the same time as measuring a pitch. As an added bonus, this also tracks exit speed off the bat so you can measure your hitters as well. This is not only a great product, but also a great product for the money. I recommend this product to all coaches who are serious about tracking development of their pitchers and hitters.”
