Course 5:   Video Review Tools

Lesson 1:   Discover Game-Changing Insights

  1. Learn your options. There are two dif­fer­ent ways to review your video on Hudl. Number one — add com­ments and draw­ings to the full game video and keep every­thing in one place, shared with your whole team. Your second option is to save the most important moments of your video in playlists. This makes it super easy to find what you need quickly. Choose whatever method will help you get the video that matters delivered to those who need it. Keep reading for more details. 

  2. Add comments & drawings to the full video. This is a great choice if you have some­thing that applies to your whole team. These com­ments and draw­ings will live on the game video, so any­one who has access to the video will be able to view them. 

  3. Create playlists with clips. Pull out the most impor­tant teach­ing moments from your game by cre­at­ing clips and save them for indi­vid­ual or team review. And good news — you can still add a com­ment or draw­ing to help bring your lessons to life. 

  4. Build playlists from tags. You no longer have to sort through the entire game video to find that one con­test­ed shot. Filter by a team or play­er, plus any stat, to quick­ly nar­row down your search for that spe­cif­ic moment you need to review. Then save it to a playlist to share with others. 

  5. Turn reports into playlists. Click any under­lined val­ue in your reports page to see the video asso­ci­at­ed with that stat. Send those clips to a playlist with the click of a button. 

  1. Take it to the next level

  2. Label your playlists. Use cus­tom labels to group playlists in your library any way you want. Create a cus­tom label for each ath­lete, or indi­vid­ual skills. Really, the pos­si­bil­i­ties are endless.

  3. Create a treasure hunt. Want to make sure your play­ers are watch­ing video? Drop a com­ment or draw­ing with a ques­tion some­where in the video, then ask for the answer dur­ing your next team review.

  4. Build a team-wide obsession with video. Teach your ath­letes how to cre­ate playlists and add com­ments and ques­tions to each clip. Intentional video review leads to better engagement — and that leads to improvement.

  5. Create playlists of individual skills. Create a playlist and share it with just one athlete so they can watch before your next practice. Now your teach­ing moments can hap­pen off the ice, too.

  6. Make an example” playlist. Find video of an NHL play­er or team that displays skills or schemes you want your team to replicate. It might be the per­fect inspi­ra­tion for your team.
