"We are really excited. This is kind of our new home base for all things Warriors Basketball Academy. Our first in-person program offering is going to be Shoot 360," said Warriors Senior Youth Basketball Director Jeff Addiego.
The Warriors will host the first youth basketball academy in the NBA to feature the Shoot 360 technology which provides real-time live shot charts analyzing arc of shot, depth of shot and left/right differential.
"What Shoot 360 does and why we like it so much, is it presents that data right back to the shooter in their workout, in real-time," said Addiego.

There will also be five skill cages providing interactive ball handling and passing drills that will also track a players' performance.
"We have two people playing collegiate basketball, they are going to have a blast competing against each other. We could put two 8-year-olds in there, so it's a lot of fun," said Addiego.
