Lesson 2:   Save Top Moments

  1. Create highlights with clips. Find a killer moment and create a clip. Edit the clip, then choose whether it’s a team or athlete highlight. Yep, it’s really 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. Take your highlight to the next level. We have awesome tools to help you level up your reel. Add music, slides, spot shadows and arrows to spice it up. 

  4. Share your highlight reels. Post to Facebook, tweet them out or copy the link to share in an email. 

  1. Pro Tips

  2. Hit em with the best plays first. You might only have 30 seconds to grab a college recruiter’s attention. Organize clips by skill, not by your schedule. 

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

  4. Show abilities specific to your position. Coaches want to know if you’re athletic enough or have the technical ability to play on their team. In a highlight reel, they’re looking for things like a center back’s ability to play the ball out of the back, or a midfielder’s strength on the ball when challenged. 

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

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