2 2021 TECH GUIDE Describe how your product helps coaches, athletic directors, or other sports industry professionals. Dr. Dish's training machines bring high repetition and professional training right to your gym. At the most basic level, players can shoot up to 1,000+ shots an hour from spots all around the perimeter and get up 5x as many reps as if they didn't have access to a machine. Taking it to the next level, with our newest Dr. Dish CT machine, coaches and players can design their own workouts in seconds or choose from more than 150+ team/ individual workouts from top programs (Duke, Louisville, Florida, UNLV, etc.), and top basketball skills trainers (Drew Hanlen, DJ Sackmann, Jordan Lawley, etc.). The expert breakdowns and training analytics are instantly available directly on the Dr. Dish CT 15.6-inch touchscreen. What specific problems/challenges does your product solve? By having on-demand access to top coaches and trainers, the Dr. Dish CT solves many skill development challenges. It also creates genuine excitement among players. We often hear from coaches who say that developing talent and skill has always been a challenge. Specifically, replicating game-like scenarios within practices and training sessions is difficult within high-repetition sets. When coaches aren't present, there's no assurance that players are working on the right things - until now. With the Dr. Dish CT, the skill development and training we provide simulates in-game scenarios, which separates us from anything else in the industry. It's a different game when players can practice like they play while also receiving in-depth, expert breakdowns. The accountability piece is also extremely powerful for both players and coaches. With the ability to upload detailed stats and analytics, coaches know exactly who's working and how they're progressing. What sets you apart from similar products or competitors? In one word: Innovation. We take pride in providing much more than just a shooting machine to programs, but a complete training solution with world-class content for coaches and players to use. Specifically, with Dr. Dish CT, we're taking interactive, on-demand training like P90X and Peloton and bringing it to the game of basketball. As technology evolves, we're committed to improving our products and solutions. By making our machines more user-friendly, tech-savvy, and versatile, we feel we're accomplishing just that. Another exciting feature that's new in 2021 is our Multiplayer tracking mode. With this revolutionary innovation, coaches and players can build custom shooting drills that track individual AND group stats for up to five players at once. We've been fortunate to work with top NCAA teams (UNC, Baylor, Florida, etc.), NBA teams (Miami Heat, Philadelphia 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers, etc.), top-level trainers (Drew Hanlen, DJ Sackmann, Jordan Lawley), and NBA players (Luka Doncic, Zach LaVine, Skylar Diggins) who are all using Dr. Dish to accelerate their skill development. How does Dr. Dish help athletic administrators and coaches get the highest return on their investment with Dr. Dish products? We take tremendous pride in our engineering, product development, and service. With our standard 5 year warranty and extreme attention to detail, it's always been a top priority for us to provide coaches and administrators with the best quality products that are truly built to last. On top of that, our products are also future-proof with over- the-air updates much like smartphones. For example, if we launch a new feature, new workout, or add increased functionality to our technology, those updates get pushed to our customer's Dr. Dish machines via WiFi right away. Don't just take our word for it, here are a couple of our most recent Dr. Dish CT reviews: "Great tool for our players. The immediate feedback through detailed stats gives players an idea of progress. Highly recommend." - Coach Thompson, Bay High School (MS) "The Dr. Dish is a great machine. It has brought excitement and hard work to our practices. The real-time feedback is great." - Coach Cook, Mehlville High School (MO) In the COVID-era where social distancing is at the forefront of everyone's mind, how do Dr. Dish's products help athletes better their craft in a socially-distant setting? While we certainly didn't plan for a global pandemic, we're definitely happy that we've been able to provide a great resource for countless programs that have had to shift their practice and training regimens. Using Dr. Dish is undoubtedly the best way for players to get efficient and purposeful training by themselves while socially distancing. Recently we caught up with Wethersfield High School (IL) Coach Todd Hansen. At the time, their coaches and players were only allowed to do one-on-one training. As a result, they heavily utilized their Dr. Dish CT to get up a ton of shots and promote competition: "Each girl uses the Dish twice a week. They get 200-300 shots up in a half-hour. We've taken over 8,000 shots in 5 weeks. I knew the girls were missing the competition. I developed a point system for them to compete internally. They aren't used to competing with one another, but it's been great." TALKING TECH WITH: DR. DISH ADVERTISEMENT
