Smart Coach Radar with Companion App Named Best of Show at 2019 ABCA Baseball Coaches Convention

We are excited to announce that our newest product, the Smart Coach Radar with Companion App, has been selected as one of the prestigious Best Of Show winners by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper at the 2019 ABCA Convention in Dallas, Texas.

The American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) holds an annual convention at the beginning of the year to honor the past baseball season’s award winners ranging from High School to College, and showcase new products for those attending.  As an Official Partner of the ABCA, we have been an exhibit hall regular at the annual convention since introducing our first product in 2010.

2019 was a special year for us, as we introduced our revolutionary new technology:  Smart Coach Radar with Companion AppThe Smart Coach Radar is a game changer, as it is the first accurate, affordable, complete speed and video training system that empowers the modern athlete and coach in many sports with the ability to create and share a digital record of their progress.

This was also our 4th Best of Show Award over the past 10 years.  Being a self-funded technology company, we are very proud of this accomplishment.  We listen to feedback every day from coaches about what they would like to see in future technology enhancements, and awards like these reaffirm our efforts.

Here is the excerpt about the product from Collegiate Baseball:

"The Smart Coach Radar and companion App (available on IOS and Android) is the first affordable, complete speed and video training system that has the ability to create and share a digital record of a player’s progress.

By providing actionable insights into important metrics like hitting exit velocity and pitch velocities, coaches and athletes can now optimize their techniques and methods to get better results in the new era of athletic training.

Here are some of the important areas this product features:

  • Instant feedback with remote speed display and audio speed announcement announcement.
  • Track results over time with instant history review and data export.
  • Get speeds instantly and record video with embedded speeds at the same time.
  • Capture and share video with speed for remote coaching.
  • Share videos of results/improvement socially to friends, coaches and recruiters.
  • Upload your videos to other training/recruiting software and apps.
  • Flexible power options for extended operating times.
  • App-enabled technology provides powerful features for use with practices, recruitment, training, remote coaching, camps/clinics and showcases.

Here is what Danny Hall, head baseball coach at Georgia Tech (over 1,000 career wins) had to say about his implementation of the new technology:

"The Smart Coach Radar has enhanced our training exponentially with our players. It allows us to sync our exit velocities and pitch velocities into our coaches and players iPhones or iPads for immediate display. We can analyze each swing or pitch immediately and then make a coaching suggestion for the next one. We have sent the clips to our players so they can see their video with velocities displayed in the clip. The Smart Coach Radar also enhances our campers experiences because we can email them their swings and pitches with velos from camp. Without question, the Smart Coach Radar is our best tool and most time efficient way to coach our players and campers with regard to exit velocities and pitch velocities."
