6 Ways Video Can Help Your Team’s Parents

Using video as a sports par­ent can help you move past cheer­ing in the stands to tak­ing your ath­lete (and the entire team) to the next level.

Parents play an essen­tial role in youth sports and can ben­e­fit from hav­ing the best tools to sup­port their play­ers. Using video as a par­ent involved in sports can help you move past cheer­ing in the stands to tak­ing your ath­lete (and the entire team) to the next level. 

Here’s how:

1. Remove Bias

Fight par­ent bias by using video to have an accu­rate view of your player’s strengths and weak­ness­es. Watching video on Hudl after the game pin­points how ath­letes can improve once the emo­tion of the game has died out. 

2. Gain a Coach’s Perspective

Parents and coach­es may not always see eye-to-eye, but Hudl can give par­ents insight into coach­ing deci­sions. Not only will the video show what play­ers need to improve, but com­ments added by coach­es can help par­ents gain a coach’s perspective. 

3. Positive Reinforcement

Reinforce the encour­age­ment or crit­i­cism from your player’s coach­es. With access to video and coach­ing com­ments on Hudl, you can echo the points made by coach­es and avoid send­ing con­flict­ing mes­sages to athletes. 

4. Celebrate Their Success

Highlights go beyond just recruit­ing. Share high­lights and spe­cial moments with friends and fam­i­ly to boost your player’s self esteem and cel­e­brate their vic­to­ries, whether big or small.

5. Another Way to Participate

All coach­es appre­ci­ate hav­ing video of the game, but find­ing vol­un­teers to film can be tough. Step up and offer film for your child’s team and be a part of cre­at­ing a bet­ter experience.

6. Stay Connected

If you hap­pen to miss the big game or grand­par­ents can’t make it one week­end, Hudl helps you stay con­nect­ed and access your player’s games. Watch every bit of the action on a com­put­er or mobile device — any­time and anywhere.
