By · March 17, 2014 · Filed in From the Owner · Comments Off on 94Fifty Training provided by the Hudson Valley Hype

Hudson Valley Hype Enterprises, LLC in conjunction with 94Fifty Sports Technologies are proud to introduce the Hudson Valley to the only ball that measures your game. The Hudson Valley Hype are Tournament, Professional and Summer Developmental League Champions because of their hard work ethic and strenuous training. This success is not built on raw talent but the ability to build on skills with proper technique, the measuring of this technique is the key. The ball only does what the player tells it to do. By measuring the motion of the ball, you measure the player with great detail. Patented inertial motion sensor arrays inside of the 94Fifty basketball combined with sophisticated, patent-pending pattern recognition algorithms automate what the ball can count. Proprietary scoring algorithms based on thousands of samples do the rest to produce the most complete personalized assessments of athletic skill ever available in any sport, exclusively available in the Hudson Valley through Hudson Valley Hype.
The technology generates objective, personalized diagnostics within seconds and provides all the information for players and coaches to see the results. We give players and coaches a rich snapshot of core skills, and when combined with personal commitment, great coaching, and personal training, our diagnostics provide a powerful way to improve skills quickly and dramatically. The Hype’s dominate record of championships, league records for scoring per game as a team, and 22-1 record since 2012 are evidence that the proof is in the ball.
Appointments for training are filling up quickly as players of all skill levels, both male and female can begin to take advantage of the one on one training and success this technology offers. Take advantage of a single session or purchase multiple sessions to use at your convenience to continue to monitor your development.

What is the Summer Developmental League?

By · October 8, 2013 · Filed in From the Owner · Comments Off on What is the Summer Developmental League?

The Hudson Valley Hype continue to make strides in innovation for the minor league professional basketball player. This year we have instituted a Summer Developmental League, much like the NBA’s Developmental League, except the rookie tryout players have an opportunity to play alongside the established professional players. Owner Allen Pickett explains, “It is impossible to see how a player will perform at this level from a stat sheet or highlight video. We have chosen this as a venue for the potential new players to showcase their talents, in a professional setting with existing professional players. We are going to manage this team just as we would during the regular season, with community service events, exhibition games, full stat sheets and offensive/defensive plays. Even though the summer league games are not a full (48) minute game against full professional teams, I believe it will serve as the perfect training tool you can’t find at a practice or single day tryout.”
