Course 8:   Highlights + Recruiting

Lesson 2:   Save Top Moments

  1. Create highlights with clips. Find the moment and create a clip. Edit the clip, then choose whether it’s a team or athlete highlight. It’s that simple. 

  2. Use stats to find the best moments. Filter your games to easily find your team’s key plays. A few clicks later and boom — it’s a highlight.

  3. Add effects to your highlight. We have awesome tools to take your reels to the next level. Add music, slides, spot shadows and arrows to spice it up. 

  1. Pro Tips

  2. Hit em with the best plays first. You might only have 30 seconds to grab a college recruiter’s attention. Start with a backboard-shattering dunk. Then, follow it up with footage of drives and strong finishes, plus a slick three-pointer to showcase all-around game. 

  3. Show offense first. Of course recruiters are interested in seeing how a prospect can defend, rebound and pass the ball, and these skills will play an important role in getting recruited. But first and foremost, coaches want to see if he or she can get buckets — they’ll look into the rest later. 

  4. Keep it short. Recruiters’ inboxes fill up with highlight reels every day. Cut a good ten minute highlight into an awesome two minute highlight so they actually watch the whole thing. 

  5. Don’t repeat plays. Don’t worry, they saw it the first time. 

  6. Make the athlete easy to find. Use spot shadows to showcase the right athlete. Otherwise the recruiter might try to contact your shooting guard who’s already committed.
