Dr. Dish Basketball had the opportunity to sit down with Coach Chris Chavannes from The Patrick School to talk about winning the state title and the success the team had this year. Coach Chavannes also took some time to speak on how Dr. Dish shooting machines have helped in taking their success to the next level!

We appreciate all our customers and it truly brings us joy to see Dr. Dish schools excelling on the basketball court.  Take a second to read our interview with Coach Chavannes on their ups and downs during the season and also how the school has became a powerhouse in New Jersey.

Dr. Dish:

Coach Chavannes thanks for joining me. Can you give us a back ground on the different roles you have at The Patrick School?

Coach Chavannes:

I am the principal and also the Head Basketball Coach and I have been involved with The Patrick school for well over 20 years now. We're a small school so I wear multiple hats within the school.

Dr. Dish:

Coach, what are a few of your coaching philosophies and some of the things you pride yourself and your program on?

Coach Chavannes:

For me, I'm a stickler for detail and I want to make sure things are done the right way. With AAU and the way basketball is now, sometimes the details and focus are lost. Players are traveling all over and playing games but often times don't get a chance to truly learn the game and the minor details which will make the players and team successful. It doesn't matter if you're the worst player or the best player I'm going to coach you the same way.

Dr. Dish:

What were some of the highlights this past season?

Coach Chavannes:

This year our team played arguably the toughest schedule in the country. No matter if we won games or lost games, the one constant was that we shot the ball incredibly well on the year. I think thats in part to utilizing our Dr. Dish shooting machine throughout the entire season. The amount of shots and efficiency the Dish definitely paid dividends for us throughout the year. The guys loved playing their music through the integrated JBL speaker system in Dr. Dish and getting an unlimited amount of reps up before, during, and after practice. This is what made us so hard to beat this year.

Dr. Dish:

Easily getting game-like reps up is one way to increase confidence and success on the court. Is that something you believe in?

Coach Chavannes:

Definitely! The Dish literally takes seconds to set up and move around. With our old machine it was very bulky and was hard to set up for the players. The ability to easily move the Dish around allowed for us to use the Dish during practice and in drills. It really helped enhance our practices!

Dr. Dish:

How has the community responded since winning the state title?

Coach Chavannes:

Its been tremendous. We have always had a great following but this year was extremely special for us. The community continues to support us and give back so we are grateful for that!

Dr. Dish:

Coach thanks for your time and congrats once again on an absolutely amazing year!

Coach Chavannes:

It's my pleasure and we appreciate Dr. Dish and everything you guys do!
