After chatting with 100's of users, we discovered many creative ways players set and track their basketball training goals. Some users set long-term goals, like wanting to shoot 100,000 shots this year. Others keep them more short term, such as, I want to shoot 300 shots a day or 1,000 a week.
Experienced basketball players and coaches know the importance of setting realistic goals, and keeping a close eye on them. But what's the best way to do that? We realized quickly that there was a gap in the basketball space of a tool that helps players stay on top of these goals - short, mid or long-term. Insert: Goal Setting.
