Footballs Available on our Shop Page NOW! (February 27th, 2018)

Footballs Available Now! Footballs available in our store now!


We are often asked about purchasing replacement footballs for the Ball Cannon. In the past, we had to send our customers to retail stores to make their purchases. Not anymore! We are pleased to announce that you can now purchase the only football compatible with the Ball Cannon, directly from the Ball Cannon SHOP PAGE!

Why buy from us? The standard NERF Pro-Grip Football has a WIDE range of firmness. Some footballs are very soft, and others very firm. For the best performance with the Ball Cannon (perfect spirals and the maximum launch distance) a FIRM football is required. Whereas the launch distance of a soft football might only be 75 feet, a firm ball will typically travel up to 100 feet! 

We cannot control the firmness of the balls sold in retail stores, HOWEVER… we CAN control what we sell! As a matter of fact, we test the firmness of every Nerf football before packaging it with a Ball Cannon or selling it separately to assure that our customers only get the firmest footballs and are guaranteed to get the best results with their Ball Cannon!

Youth Football Season! (August 14th, 2017)

Ball Cannon at NFL Flag Football PracticeBall Cannon at NFL Flag Football Practice in Downingtown, PA


Initially designed for youth football players to practice their skills at home, we've been getting a lot of inquiries from coaches who would like an alternative to the $2,000-$5,000 professional football throwing machines. Similar to the professional machines, the Ball Cannon launches the NERF Pro-Grip Football with great precision and power. So to demonstrate it's professional-quality, we're partnering up with local football leagues and teams to bring the Ball Cannon to their practices!

Check out our videos from the Philadephia Eagles Youth Football Clinic

If you're involved with a football league/team that is within 50 miles of Reading, PA (19605) and would like us to bring the Ball Cannon to YOUR practice or game please contact us by emailing Kiana Clark at or calling 610.370.7060 x101.

The Ball Cannon was a sponsor of the 34th Annual Quickchek NJ Festival of Ballooning, which took place from Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31 at the Solberg Airport in Readington, NJ. 

We were excited to see the crowds of people at our tent throughout the day. This event was a great opportunity to show our product to people of all ages. We demonstrated how this product could not only be used by children and teens, but by people of all ages. Our delay feature allowed one player to press the launch button and run out into the open field for a pass!

We were by far one of the busiest tents at the festival! Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate with us and rain forced the festival to close early, but we look forward to possibly returning next year!

The Ball Cannon was a sponsor of the Inaugural Odell Beckham Jr. Football ProCamp at Boonton High School on Tuesday, July 26th, where 240 kids across the country in grades 1-8 attended the camp to meet and train with one of the best wide receivers in the National Football League. The Ball Cannon was featured on the field during the camp to assist with helping the younger campers learn how to catch a football. The three hour event was jam packed with drills, skills, and of course - dancing!

At the end of the day, the campers had a chance to participate in the Ball Cannon "Go For It" Challenge. One lucky camper was chosen for a chance to win some memorabilia from Beckham. After making four completions from the Ball Cannon at various distances, the camper walked away with an official autographed #13 NYG helmet.

Check out The Ball Cannon featured in the Reading Eagle this past Sunday!  Thanks to reporter Mike Urban for so perfectly capturing the essence of our journey over the last 8 years.

"After spending eight years perfecting one type of launch, Fred D. Hafer Jr. is now working on another.

The first type of launch involved his beloved Ball Cannon, a machine the Wyomissing business owner dreamed up, designed and built.

The device throws Nerf footballs up to about 100 feet and as accurately and consistently as a star quarterback, yet isn't nearly as big or expensive as the throwing machines the pros practice with." Read more

   Fred Hafer, Jr. launching our Kickstarter campaign!

 After 7 years of development and hundreds of hours of testing, the Ball Cannon™ design is complete. We've also established sources for all of the commercial components and have the tooling for the injection-molded parts. We are now ready to produce a limited quantity (100) of Ball Cannons so that we can put the product in the hands of consumers to gather important feedback and refine our manufacturing, sales, marketing and other processes. Although we do have a considerable amount of user feedback, to date it's been from family, friends, neighbors and co-workers.

The limited market release of 100 Ball Cannon™'s through Kickstarter is intended to provide FreVon with important feedback relative to the Ball Cannon™'s: Product performance, Ease of assembly, Quality of product labeling, Market demand, Pricing, Potential future improvements.

Assuming the Ball Cannon™ is well received by the market and doesn't require any immediate, significant modifications, FreVon will use the results of the Kickstarter campaign to forecast the first year's sales, refine its manufacturing processes, hire employees and finalize its sales and marketing plan in preparation for a full market release.

Please help us make the Ball Cannon™ a success!
