Power Your Throws
Ultimate Frisbee, more commonly known as Ultimate, is becoming a more and more popular sport, and is played from middle school to a professional level across the US and the world. However, learning to throw a disc is not easy and often requires extensive practice. Unlike throwing or kicking a ball, the arm motion involved with throwing a disc effectively is sometimes unintuitive and can be hard to learn. For those without a coach or a team to practice with, this can make getting into ultimate challenging.
For Ultimate teams ranging from amateur to professional, throw analysis and data collection is tough. Unlike soccer, there is no goal-line technology, and there is no system such as Hawk-Eye which is used to help referee tennis and cricket.
Being able to analyze an individual's throws in terms of throw type (flick/forehand, backhand, hammer, etc.), speed, and stability would help with both of these problems. Players could identify the throws they rely on most often and which throws they struggle with. It would also provide insights for players on how to improve their throws, and whether they need to work on speed, eliminating wobble, or both. It could even extend to professional refereeing applications.
