Where should I position my device?

Position your device on a tripod/stand (we recommend either the tripod and mount or this phone stand) so that your device can see the player, backboard, and the entire 3PT line. We recommend positioning your device along the sideline near half court so that it has a great view of the basket and the entire 3PT line.

  • Private – All workouts are private by default, and only visible to you. Any follow request must be approved by you. Your workouts do not appear on public or team leaderboards, or your followers’ feeds. You can change the privacy setting of an individual workout at any time to override this setting. Only your name, team, position, profile picture, and height are public.

    Teammates and Followers Only – Anyone on your teams and anyone you approve as a follower can see your workouts. Teammates and Followers will receive notifications about your HomeCourt activities. Team admins, coaches and trainers can export and share your workout videos. Your workouts may appear on team leaderboards, but will not appear on public leaderboards. You can change the privacy setting of an individual workout at any time to override this setting. Only your name, team, position, profile picture, and height are public.

    Public – Anyone on HomeCourt can view your workouts and profile. Anyone on HomeCourt can follow you and any follow request will be accepted automatically. Followers will receive notifications about your HomeCourt activities. Team admins, coaches and trainers can export and share your workout videos. Your workouts may appear on public leaderboards. You can change the privacy setting of an individual workout at any time to override this setting.

    You can manage your privacy settings by visiting your profile -> edit -> privacy

For even more granular control, you can edit privacy settings for each individual workout by going to profile -> workouts -> session -> settings (gear icon on the top right) -> privacy

If you change your overall privacy settings, workouts that were previously recorded using different privacy settings will remain as they were originally. You can update the privacy settings of those videos at anytime
