If you’re looking for some new apps for your iPad or iPhone you might want to check out some of these basketball coaching apps on iTunes. I will continue to add to this as I find new apps or others are suggested to me.
Basketball Play Drawing Apps
If you are interested in this app, please take a look at PlayLocker Basketball. PlaybookBball will eventually be replaced by PlayLocker Basketball. Thanks!
Named “Best App for Drawing Up Plays” by “Best iPad Apps” – Peter Meyers (O’Reilly Media).
PlaybookBball gives basketball coaches the ability to create animated play diagrams and manage their virtual playbooks directly on the iPad. Designed to simplify the visualization of plays through animation, PlaybookBball breaks basketball plays down into individual steps and puts them back together to bring a coach’s vision to life for their players.
With PlaybookBball, basketball coaches can also easily manage and organize their plays as a virtual playbook. Each play can have any number of custom tags that basketball coaches can use to quickly access during game time.
“VisionTactics” is a useful tool for coaches, players and fans of sports.

Basketball Stat Keeping Apps
[two_third_last]An extensive overhaul of the app is now complete, making a 4.5/5 star app even better! This upgrade is packed with lots of new features and a new interface that supports both portrait and landscape modes.
With iTouchStats Basketball, you are in control over how much data you want to track. The most popular method is to track individual player stats for one team while tracking just the opponent’s team stats, as shown in the 1st screen shot. Or you can track individual player stats for both teams, as shown in the 2nd screen shot. Which stats you track for each team is up to you. Even the use of the game clock and shot location tracking are optional.
A unique feature of iTouchStats Basketball is the quick stat icons that appear next to a player’s photo or jersey. These icons coordinate with the stat button colors, giving you an easy way to see a player’s key stats without needing to leave the main scoring screen. Icons include: Points (Green), Fouls (Red), Turnovers (Orange), Assists (Yellow), Steals (Gray), and Blocks (Brown). By double-tapping on a player, you can get even more stat details including shot charts and shooting percentages.

We all have seen assistant coaches around the world using sheets of paper and scribbling down the game statistics for their team while sitting next to the coach. The same assistant coaches then had to spend an hour or more compiling those scribbled data into a Box Score which they could analyze further. Basketball Stats PRO app for iPad scraps both the paper and the grueling process of stats compiling and delivers an easy to use stats tracker, which allows coaches, assistant coaches, scouts, parents or basketball fans to track stats of their team right from their iPad.
All the inputted stats are instantly compiled to show the current stats of your team, this will allow coaching staff to have all the stats updated and ready at any given time during or after the game. Inputting stats is a very easy process, since you have buttons that represent each player in the roster and all the stats categories. You just tap on a player and the stat and it will automatically get added to the game. For two and three point shots (hit or missed) you also tap on the area of the court where the shot was taken from. You can view the complete Box Score with just one tap and send it via email to anyone around the world.
