This past summer, while recruiting a D1 transfer student, Coach Jeff Curtis had an ace up his sleeve. She was a would-be D1 transfer student and Northwood is a small, private D2 school. His ace? An affordable sensor-based system that captures real-time stats and analytics called ShotTracker.
Northwood became the first D2 school in the country to install this widely affordable, cutting-edge tech in its home arena in June. Soon after, while the player was still mulling her options, her father swung by the gym along with her younger brother. Curtis was explaining to his mentor how the actionable intel that ShotTracker provides helps players improve their individual performance as the player’s brother strapped on a ShotTracker sensor and joined a scrimmage.
“When he got done playing, we pulled up his shot chart up on the iPad. They were in awe. ShotTracker was a really big piece in this recruiting puzzle,” stated Coach Curtis.
We don’t always have the
amenities that larger schools or even the schools in our league have. ShotTracker’s a game changer. It separates us from everybody else.
