Players... are you serious about basketball? Do you want to do everything you can to become a great player? Are you practicing a lot, but making bad decisions during games?
Coaches... are you tired of players making the same mental errors over and over?
Enter Applied Cognitive Engineering's Basketball IntelliGymTM.
Practice, practice more, train and get in the weight room. Attend camps and clinics. Learn from your coaches. Look at videos and websites just like the Coach's Clipboard. All these things will help you to become a better athlete and player.
But what about the mental side... mental quickness, making good decisions during games, basketball IQ, seeing the floor, court sense, etc? Up until now, coaches have thought that these things were just something you were born with, like a "gift"... not something you could actually teach or learn. This is all changing now with the Basketball IntelliGymTM, a program that "trains your brain". It teaches you to make better decisions, that lead to more assists and steals, fewer turnovers, better shot selection, etc.
The Basketball IntelliGymTM - how does it work? What is it? The Basketball IntelliGymTM is a computer program. It looks and plays like a video game, but it is actually a sophisticated training system. The Basketball IntelliGymTM was tested on players of all levels and age groups. The results: playing with the Basketball IntelliGymTM for just 30 minutes once or twice a week, for only a few weeks, led to a substantial improvement in skills like real-time decision making, anticipation, concentration, attention-span, team-play, fast response time and court sense.
Similar programs were used to train fighter pilots, with a significant improvement in performance. Now this technology has been applied to basketball. Playing the video game exercises the brain in a way that simulates the quick thinking and decisions you need to make in the game setting. Like weight training, you only do this two or three times a week, with at least 24 hours between sessions. There is nothing to learn or remember, and nothing to study. You just have fun and play it like a video game!
How does this benefit players. They see the court. They understand what's happening. They learn to anticipate. They make the correct decisions. It's like the game has slowed down in their own minds.

Coaches... get the IntelliGymTM Team Version for 12 - 15 players.
John Calipari, University of Kentucky, head coach
"After all is said and done, the IntelliGym trains players in making the right choices. The guys that really bought in, it helped. Some guys didn't buy in, and these are the same guys that make bad decisions. It's that simple."
Hubie Brown, NBA Hall of Fame Coach (3 NBA teams), ESPN basketball analyst
"In the game of basketball it is not about who runs faster or jumps higher, but about who makes better decisions and fewer mistakes. This is the first time I see a training tool that can actually improve game intelligence skills of basketball players. The Basketball IntelliGym is revolutionary."
Jim Calhoun, UConn head coach
"The Basketball IntelliGym is revolutionary and any coach that will look at it will recognize immediately what it can do for his players... I wouldn't be surprised if five years from now every college and pro team in the U.S. will have the IntelliGym Trainer as an integral component of its training system.
In a championship game, all other factors being equal, the coach that used the IntelliGym system will most likely be the one cutting off the nets."
Nick Collison, professional basketball player
"I'm impressed! I added the IntelliGymTM to my training regimen. By the time I completed the first 10 training sessions the results were unmistakable. It is easy to use, fun to play and above all - the IntelliGymTM really works!"
Slam Magazine (May '07 Edition)
"SLAM Magazine reviews the Basketball IntelliGymTM:
"Although this looks and feels like a video game, this 'brain gym' is really a workout for your mind... This system will help train you to do the same on the court. The NCAA Champion Florida Gators used it; If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for you..."
