Who We Are
Ballogy is revolutionizing the way youth and amateur athletes prepare for their sports by introducing a standardized testing and analytics software platform that sets the industry standard for collecting and tracking key performance indicators. Youth athletic programs, through professional teams, have made a commitment to data-driven excellence with Ballogy.
We are driven by the quest to be the best. Today, wearable fitness devices enable athletes to record data on almost every action they take: the number of steps taken, their water intake, the amount of calories consumed in a day, and more. But how athletes turn these performance metrics into action is what matters. Ballogy was created to enable today’s up and coming athletes to analyze their performance in specific areas and give them baselines to improve. All driven by cold hard facts, no opinions.
