Our Mission

"You can't improve what you don't measure."

Shot Analysis' goal is to improve shooting and the game of basketball, one shot at a time. Shooting is the most important part of the game and has never been more prevalent. Winning more games and separating yourself from the competition usually comes down to making more shots. However, shooting numbers are not improving across the sport. We are confident we have the best tools to help every player and team take their game to the highest level! With our elite shooting programs, Flick and Follow Thru, improving has never been easier! We look forward in helping you along your basketball journey!

We look forward in helping you along your basketball journey!

Our Story

"A discovery is said to be an accident meeting a prepared mind." -Albert von Szent-Gyorgyi

Shot Analysis happened initially by accident. Two Time NCAA National Player of the Year and former professional, Andrew Olson was curious. With a background of playing 20+ years, including college and professionally, and 10+ years of training the reality had hit him. Most players miss their shots short. But why?

Curious and one to figure out a solution, a theory was created and put to the test. First step, gather the data. Three years, thousands of hours and thousands of shots recorded, the theory had been tested and the results were overwhelming.

Second step, establish the best way to explain.

Third step, with the data, and theory tested, ASA or Accumulated Shot Analysis was born. Finally a way to track, monitor and explain a player’s shot mechanics. Currently ASA services are only being used with NBA players and teams.

But, we thought to ourselves…how could we help the rest of the basketball world improve their shot?

So, Andrew got together with NBA trainer Jordan Lawley, and one of the brightest young developers around, Andy Simon, and proceeded to make elite level training programs that could be done from your phone. Happily, we give you Flick and Follow Thru, to improve your shot, one shot at a time!

During his four years at Amherst College (Division III), Andrew played in three straight Final Fours (2006-2008) and won a National Championship in 2007.

After college, Andrew played professionally in Europe for two seasons where he led in points, assists and steals.

Today, Andrew uses his experience on the court to develop his clients' skills. During his time as a basketball trainer, he became motivated to solve a common problem related to shooting performance - missing short. After three years of development and working directly with NBA teams, colleges and nationally ranked high school players, Andrew was able to explain this conundrum and Shot Analysis was formed.
