Multiplayer Mode: Tips and Tricks for How to Use it
by Aaron Lange, on Nov 27, 2022 9:00:00 AM
We've heard countless stories of teammates, siblings, and friends competing all summer long to increase their shooting percentages and level up their games. We listened to your feedback, and built our newest feature with competition in mind.
We're excited to announce that Multiplayer Mode is now available on Dr. Dish Home! This upgrade allows up to 3 players to track and save their stats inside the same workout.
Now, one of our most popular features on the Dr. Dish CT machine is available in your driveway.
Looking for inspo on drills to build to utilize this feature? Check these 3 out:
- 2+ players
- Switch players after each location (Passing Style)
- Attempts Mode, 5 spots around the horn mid-range 2pt, tempo 4-6
- 15 shots per player, 1 ball per spot
In this competitive shooting drill one player will start near the Dish and the first shooter will start at the first location. The player near the Dish will sprint out as soon as the pass is kicked out. That player will close out and become the next shooter at the same location. The shooter will attempt their shot and sprint to the Dish and become the next defender closing out. After the second shot rotates spots and continue until the drill is complete. The player that makes the most contested shots and has the highest percentage wins the drill.
3 Shot Shooting
- 2+ players
- Each player at a different location (Passing Style)
- Time Mode, 5 min total, mid-range wings, tempo 2-3
- 3 balls per player at location
This drill focuses on three different types of shots. Mid-range jump shot, one dribble pull up left and last one dribble pull up right. Each player will attempt these three shots before the Dish rotates to the next player. Continue this pattern for a total of 5 minutes. The player with the highest shooting percentage after the time runs out wins. Increase the tempo for more game-like reps if needed.
10 Star Shooting
- 2+ players
- Switch players after all locations (Passing Style)
- Attempts Mode, 10 locations (5 star pattern 2pt and 3pt), tempo 4-5
- 30 shots per player, 1 ball per spot
This competitive shooting drill combines 2pt and 3pt shooting in the same drill. Players will shoot in the 5 star pattern from mid-range (corner/wing/wing/corner/top) and then from three point range for a total of 10 shots. After the first player attempts their 10 shots the next players will repeat the same shooting sequence. Each player will go through 3 times rotating turns for a total of 30 shots. The player that makes the most at the end of the drill wins. Give these drills a try and let us know with the hashtag #drdishfam or @drdishbball what you think!
You no longer have to complete separate workouts to compare stats with another player. Now, multiple players can be added to the same workout, and their stats will be saved individually under their name. This creates higher accountability, unlimited ways to compete, and more time shooting instead of waiting around on the court.
Each player will see a heatmap of their workout, and an overall make/miss shooting percentage upon completion.
See an example below of the multiplayer results that are displayed after each workout finishes.
Why it Matters
Part of Being Better Every Day is knowing how to use your time wisely. We want your time on the Dr. Dish to be focused on skill development, and leveling up your game. Multiplayer mode means less time programming workouts and more time perfecting your craft.
Training efficiently is what helped Makadyn and her sisters get hundreds of shots up each morning before the school day even began.
Now, Jonas and Anderson Wilkin will be able to compete head to head on their Dr. Dish Home to improve off their 50% 3-point percentage over the summer.
We're excited to help families and teammates across the country compete easier than ever before with this new feature.
Brothers Anderson and Jonas Wilkin compete with over 135 workouts over the summer
