Playfinity has come up with a more fun and engaging way to test each player’s throwing skills with the recently introduced Speed Test, which has been a popular request. Players will be led through a 10-round test by Coach Bob, who will announce the speeds for each throw. A test history keeps track of the player’s progress over time and records each round.

The player is guided by real-time audio commentary, which improves performance. Players can choose to throw to a catcher or against a padded surface, and they can set the distance. The game is intended for throwers aged 6 to 14. Players receive points for consistency, and the average serves as the basis for the final speed score. New high scores are rewarded with a diploma from Coach Bob.

Ground Ball was created to make learning how to ground ball fun. You can choose from a variety of game modes, including beating your own score, competing with friends and co-players, and challenging other players worldwide.

The ball provides the player with real-time feedback to help them improve their skills and measures important stats like catching accuracy, throwing accuracy, and transition time. As they level up and improve their skills, players earn badges.
