The Client

The story of Head It Right started with Robert Miller, a renowned soccer performance expert at Phenom Performance. He recognized the potential risks associated with heading the ball, particularly for younger athletes, and saw a need for a training tool that would allow players to practice their heading technique without the fear of head trauma. He aimed to create a product that would enhance heading skills while prioritizing player safety and reducing the risk of concussions. Seeking a solution, Miller approached Brandon at BlueKube with a vision for a portable and adjustable device that could measure vertical jumps while providing a soft surface for practicing headers.

Design and Development

Robert and our team embarked on an intensive design journey, drawing inspiration from existing vertical jump measurement devices used in basketball. Our goal was to create a soccer-specific device that could be easily transported, adjust to different heights, and ensure impact safety during training sessions. We conducted multiple design iterations to perfect the functionality and usability of the training device. Initially, we considered tripods for the base. However, stability and rotation issues posed a challenge, which meant we had to go back to the drawing board and redesign. 

Our engineering team devised a sturdy welded base and incorporated square stock. This resolved the challenges and ensured stability without compromising on mobility.  Once we finalized the design, our team of skilled fabricators and engineers in China started to construct a finished functional prototype. The device featured a laser-cut height measurement system, adjustable legs, and a secure ball mount. Rigorous testing and feedback sessions with Robert and his team led to further refinements, ensuring the device met the highest standards of performance and safety.

The Final Product

The result of our collaboration was an innovative training device boasting a foldable and adjustable design, engraved height measurements for precise tracking, and a secure ball mount that prevented unwanted rotation. It struck the perfect balance between stability and portability, enabling coaches and athletes to practice heading techniques safely and effectively.
