NOAH System Assists Madison Academy Basketball Teams
MADISON- The Madison Academy basketball program is looking to the NOAH Shooting System to help each of its student-athletes become sharp shooters. The shot tracking system was recently installed at the private school in attempt to assist the program’s athletes become better shooters of the basketball by providing instant feedback to each athlete to develop the perfect shot.
Madison Academy’s first-year boy’s head coach Tom Berryman came to the Mustang’s program after four seasons as an assistant coach at North Alabama where the college program utilized the NOAH Shooting System. He said, “I saw the value of it and more and more of our players used it to a lot of success. I believe it’s the best shooting device on the market. It’s the real deal.”
The Noah Shooting System measures shot from anywhere on the court, in practice and in games. It provides instant verbal feedback for shot arc, depth and left-right, allowing players to correct their shot in real-time. The system helps the players build the muscle memory needed for a consistent shot. The device stores all the data online allowing players, coaches and parents to view individual workouts, see unique shot charts and Rim Maps indicating exactly which areas need improvement.
For Madison Academy, the NOAH Shooting System was donated at a cost of about $6,000 to the unnamed donor.
The system was installed at Madison Academy during the off-season and was late being installed so the players for both the boys and girls teams were not able to utilize the state-of-the art system a great length of time before the current season got underway. The system uses a sensor placed 13-feet above the rim on each goal. The device is wired into an iPad where each user logs in and can check results. Designers made it tech friendly.
Berryman, an astute scholar of the game, knows the aspects of a perfect shot: arc of the shot should be at 45-degrees, the ball should enter the rim (18-inches deep) at 11 inches and zero degrees on left/right alignment calibration. “In other words, nothing but net,” said Berryman. “A lot of current NBA teams use the device.”
The NOAH company is armed with years of research and data from more than 400-million shots taken by players at all levels of the game and has a large install base that includes hundreds of college teams and over 80-percent of NBA teams.
