Balln’s target customers are youth players ages 8-17. A user’s smartphone is affixed to a tripod or held by another person while players complete drills indoors or outdoors. Through a smartphone camera, the app’s computer vision tracks player and ball movement to provide feedback on a user’s shooting, pace, dribbling, agility, first touch, passing, reaction speed and ball control abilities.

The app’s Player Card feature rates a user’s skill level based on past studies of hundreds of thousands of youth soccer players. Users can also watch more than 350 training videos on Balln, which adds augmented reality graphics for on-screen display while recording a player’s training session.
