Wearable tech company ShotTracker also nabbed a win with Golden State Warriors’ first NBA championship since 1975.

ShotTracker, based in Overland Park, Kan., recently scored an endorsement deal with Golden State guard Klay Thompson that’s now led the NBA champion to offer a virtual basketball camp with the company. ShotTracker created a three-part wearable tech device that allows basketball players to track shot attempts, makes, and misses.

“We are very excited about the Klay Thompson partnership — we couldn’t ask for a better partner at a better time,” ShotTracker COO Davyeon Ross said. “This virtual camp is the first of its kind, and it’s always nice to be part of the first of something.”

In addition to tracking their progress, camp attendees have the chance to interact with and learn from Thompson, one of the NBA’s best shooting guards, Ross said. Participants will receive an email from Klay each morning with a workout for the day. The workouts are the same that Thompson and his trainer, Charlie Torres, perform each day, Ross said.

In addition to working out with Thompson, campers have a chance to win prizes such as Thompson-autographed basketballs, shoes, jerseys, and pictures.

To use a ShotTracker, ballers slip a sensor into an armband or sleeve, stick another sensor on their hoop’s net, and then download an iOS app. The app allows one to create workouts, track progress, and challenge friends to competitions.
