Our company motto is, essentially, “Helping teams win.”
After claiming their sixth consecutive state title, the Hutchinson (Kan.) Salthawks are No. 1 in the nation according to sports ratings specialist Ken Massey. When Hutch wins, we win.
In an interview with the now legendary Kansas coach, Randy Dreiling shares how he shaped a team that once lost 26 games in a row into a national powerhouse.
As a former Salthawk, I’m proud to have been coached by this man. And as representative of Hudl, I’m proud of the way Hutchinson’s coaching staff (and all our pilot school coaches, for that matter) have helped shape our product.
I relish opportunities to meet with coaches—they fuel my ability to creatively solve problems.
Sometimes the problems are glaring:
“We spend 10 hours a week burning DVDs for our players.” or “My weekend is destroyed when I drive across the state to trade film with another coach.”
But other times they’re subtle and difficult to express:
“I wish there was a more effective way to coach my players—to help them succeed.”
My job as a designer is to distill exactly what each of these problems mean to a coach. To clearly define and wrap my head around the problem. To truly understand how coaches think and work.
I’m not doing this alone. Our whole company is interested to learn how you build successful teams. What’s fun and exciting for you? What are your daily challenges? And what just plain sucks about being a coach?
We’re building a community around you—coaches, athletes and their parents.
When you win, we win. Every team deserves an opportunity to sit here.
