Russ Rose, Penn State University (7 National Championships)

“Incorporating the Ball Coach radar into our practices has helped us to identify various service game approaches. Most players think they know what works best for them, but being able to have instant objective feedback with the radar and seeing the result, gives them an idea of what a successful serve should feel like. The Ball Coach radar will continue to provide instant actionable data straight to our coaches and more important the players as they continue to develop their serving mechanics and contact.”

John Dunning, Retired (5x National Champion and 4x National Coach of the Year)

"We have been working hard to improve our serving game; improving technique, watching video, using statistics, simulating pressure,… Introducing Pocket Radar into our gym was the next step; it has forced us to raise the bar, forced us to think about things in a different way and helped us to realize how we can serve."

Kelly Sheffield, University of Wisconsin (Head Coach)

"In volleyball, the outcome of a match can be heavily influenced by the serve and pass game. When training our players to become better servers, the Ball Coach radar has proven to be invaluable. In our gym, the Ball Coach radar allows us to give our players instant accurate feedback on the pace and velocity of their serve. By having this information our players are able to have a consistent aggressive mindset with them every time they go to the service line."

Matt Buttermore, Hastings College (Head Coach, 2016 NAIA National Champions)

“Pocket Radar’s Ball Coach model has not only helped our players get a better feel for their serve velocity, it has also helped us learn to train serving more effectively. Having quantitative information on how hard we are serving shows us when a player has reached a threshold, which forces us to re-think how we need to train that player going forward to continue to push her speed up. This was crucial to us being one of the best serving teams at the National Tournament.”

Brittany Dildine, University of Wisconsin (Assistant Coach)

"The pocket radar has introduced a new competitive edge in our gym. Athletes are capable of receiving instant and accurate feedback in the areas of which we find to be important in serving. Our players are consistently being challenged to find a delicate balance between speed and accuracy."

Flavio Gulinelli, Exprivia Molfetta in Italian top A1 division (Head Coach)

"Since the skill of the serving and the receiving is one of the most important in the structure of the volleyball game, takes also a lot of time during the practice process, we decided to start using the Ball Coach radar from Pocket Radar, as a tool, which is helping us to establish the correct relationship, between the speed (power) of the serve and the efficiency. We wanted to know what is the maximum speed for certain player still bringing the positive result (creating the problems for opposite team to receive the ball), but at the same time we want to reduce the number of the mistakes to the minimum. The Ball Coach radar is the perfect option for us, since is easy to transport, it became also the motivation tool for the players (they want to know what is their maximal speed and same time not to make a mistake). We are using it during the practice process on the daily basis and during the matches. The use during the matches is very important, because speed measured at the practice is one thing, but reach same speed during the match, when the stress level is high, is something else...the Ball Coach radar is a useful tool and can be used at all the levels, at the practice or the match. I strongly recommend it as a tool, helping you or the team to develop serve and reception to the higher level.”

Mary Andrew, Jacksonville Juniors Volleyball Association (CEO and Co-Director)

"I use the Pocket Radar to measure the speed of serves and attacks. It's easy to use, quick, and efficient."
