Course 2:   It All Starts with Video

Lesson 1:   Preseason Prep

  1. Find your filmer.  Have a student manager, injured player or parent record so coaches can stick to coaching. 

  2. Choose your favorite device. An iPad or iPhone gets video online faster because it can upload live with a WiFi connection. But a camera gives you better zoom and quality options. It’s all about finding what makes sense for your team. 

  3. Style your setup.  Bleachers too far away? Filmer can’t keep the camera steady? No worries. Check out our rec­om­men­da­tions for the best lenses, cases and tripods to ensure you get quality video. 

  4. Be smart when you order jerseys. Black-on-black jerseys look sweet, but it’s nearly impossible to see the numbers. Whether you’re tagging the game yourself or sending to Hudl Assist, jerseys with good contrast will make everyone’s lives easier. 

  1. Take it to the next level

  2. Test it all at practice.  This is the ideal way to try out your hardware and train the person behind the camera.
