A typical visit starts with 25 minutes of shooting on the 10K Shoot-A-Way gun (300-400 shots)! The athletes then move over to the LAZER ball handling station. The LAZER delivers ball-handling drills from the top NBA skills coaches and trainers directly to Shooter’s Nest Members. Finishing up, the athletes spend 10-15 minutes working on their speed and explosiveness on the Vertimax. Members can schedule workout sessions, personal training, and shot evaluations thru The Shooter’s Nest IOS and Android app.

Also included in memberships is a full shot evaluation from a Shooter’s Nest coach using Noah Analytics. The Noah system measures arc, depth, and left to right on every shot taken on the court. This allows players to have a full understanding of how to improve their shot.

The Shooter’s Nest idea came from local business owner Jay Boatwright. His inspiration for came from his daughter, who plays competitive travel and high school basketball. Boatwright stated:

I didn’t want her practicing for hours and hours only to be perfecting bad form. Once I discovered the benefits of Noah Analytics and The Shoot-A-Way combined together, I had to find a way to get her access.

Now, at The Shooter’s Nest, all the basketball players in our community will have access to the best basketball technology available.

Co-Owner’s Ashley Holliday and Jessie Clark will be the head coaches at The Shooter’s Nest. Ashley Holliday played NCAA Division I at Kennesaw State University, and Jessie Clark played NCAA Division II for Reinhardt University.
