Importance of Accountability
Accountability is an essential piece that each basketball team must have in order to be successful at any level. Dr. Dish Basketball has taken the time to address accountability and incorporate it heavily into our shooting machines. After speaking to Coach Paulsen of George Mason, we confirmed the importance of training accountability throughout the season.
"We wanted to make sure we gave the players the opportunity to efficiently train before, during, and after practice. We also wanted to make sure the players were getting quality game-like shots up. Having the mobile app, advanced analytics, and training goals increases the accountability within our program year-round." - Coach Dave Paulsen
At every level of basketball accountability can be an issue. Coaches are limited with their interaction with players and it's oftentimes hard to motivate and track player success, especially when a coach is not around. Most high school and college programs create workouts or have shot clubs they send out to players during the summer. It's tough to accurately monitor and track the success of these players and this can lead to inefficiency in training during the off season.
Here at Dr. Dish, we decided to really take on the accountability piece and we created the Dr. Dish Pro and All-Star shooting machines that do just that. Players and coaches can track 2pt, 3pt, and free throw percentage by location and can view real-time numbers from their mobile app which they can share.
"I can now see the locations my player's excel at shooting and where they need to put in extra work. This is valuable information for our coaching staff especially since we always make sure to put our players in the best positions and places to succeed." - Coach Dave Paulsen
Accountability with training = Success
Accountability trickles down from the top to bottom. If you can get your best players to do the right things outside and inside of basketball, you will have a higher rate of success. The best coaches in the world have the unique ability to motivate their players to get into the gym and train hard. Smart coaches will also provide their players with innovative basketball training equipment like Dr. Dish shooting machines to help the players train more efficiently while keeping them accountable at the same time.
"We know that our players are training at the highest level and getting the data they need in order to improve daily. Our coaches are not always able to be with the players on the court. Our Dr. Dish shooting machine is available to our players at all times and we know it will push each and every one of them to become better players." - Coach Dave Paulsen
We want to thank Coach Dave Paulsen for taking the time to speak with us and we look forward to following the Patriots success this year! Here at Dr. Dish Basketball we always make sure to train hard, train smart, and also train with a purpose!
