Basketball Tech Company kicks off partnership with Record-Breaking NBA Athlete to offer free Basketball Camp
Overland Park, KS—April 27, 2015—ShotTracker, a wearable tech for basketball, announces today its partnership with Golden State Warriors shooting guard, Klay Thompson. To jump start this collaboration, Thompson and ShotTracker will launch the world’s first Virtual Basketball Camp with workouts and drills specifically designed by the star NBA athlete. In addition to the camp, this exclusive partnership includes a multi-year endorsement deal with Thompson.

“The off-season is on with ShotTracker and I’m excited to partner with the team. The off-season is when players can really focus on their weak spots and make huge improvements,” said Klay Thompson, shooting guard for the Golden State Warriors. “The work put in during the off-season has a direct impact on success during the regular season. To get where you want to be, you have to train with game time intensity all year long. ShotTracker helps players do this and holds them accountable.”
