Fall has arrived and many volleyball coaches are deep in the trenches of all aspects of their season - including Hudl. There are many ways to use Hudl to benefit your team and your athletes.
I have been hearing a couple questions over and over. Here is a breakdown of the most common things people are running in to with volleyball:
Editing Film and Data in Hudl Video Editor
The two most important aspects of the Video Editor are cutting up your video into clips and entering data. We have a few suggestions to help things go smoothly.
We suggest asking a parent or student manager to man the camera for you and stop it between rallies. This creates a clip of each rally and Hudl will cut it automatically for you in the Video Editor.
Hudl allows you to input data in three forms:
- Detailed for your team
- Detailed for both teams
View this tutorial for an explanation of the differences of the three.
Filtering for Information on Hudl.com
After you have broken down your game in the Hudl Video Editor, you want to reap the benefits! Filtering for this information on Hudl.com is somewhat hidden for volleyball coaches, as the data is “behind the scenes.”
- When you are in the Library, click Filter Clips.
- In the resulting box, choose the variable that you would like to filter for. You can select multiple items at the same time.
- The next box that appears will give you one of two choices:
- Athletes: By default, Hudl selects all the players for you. To filter for one or two players, just uncheck the boxes of the athletes you do not wish to include in the filter.
- Condition: Here you can type in a word or numbers to filter for (e.g., attacks).

Making Individual Teaching Notes
A lot of volleyball coaches use Hudl specifically for teaching their athletes. Whether it’s showing proper hitting form or teaching a player to read a block, video can be a huge help.
If you would like to make notes on a playlist that only one specific player can see, you will need to make a copy of the playlist. Then, make the notes on that copy and share it to the athlete.
What else have you run into?
