How many players can I use with my Smart Softball?

However, each player will need their own profile and Premium Pitcher Softball subscription in order to record and keep data with the Smart Softball. You cannot create multiple users under one account.

For instance, a coach who is training with a team of 10 players, will need 10 accounts and 10 Premium Pitcher Softball Subscriptions for his 10 players. The coach will be able to use one sensor for all 10 players.
