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 Wi-Fi 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.  Recording from 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.
