Course 5:   Video Review Tools

As of March 13, 2023, Hudl Academy will be undergoing changes. While this site is under construction, please connect with our tutorials, classes, or YouTube channel for up-to-date information on all Hudl products and workflows.

Lesson 1:   Discover Game-Changing Insights

  1. Learn your options. There are two different ways to review video on Hudl. You can add effects to the full video and keep everything in one place, shared with your whole team. Or you can break your video into shorter chunks using playlists so you can spend less time sifting through the entire match to review what you need. Those playlists can also be shared with just the people that need to see them. After all, your goalies and forwards probably aren’t working on the same skills.

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

  3. Create playlists with clips. Save the most important teaching moments from your match as clips, then share them for individual or team review. You can even add comments to start a con­ver­sa­tion with your team about what happened.

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

  5. Turn reports into playlists. Click any underlined value on 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, like by each athlete or individual skills. The pos­si­bil­i­ties are endless.

  3. Create a treasure hunt. Want to check if your players are watching video? Drop a question with text effects 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 to each clip. Engagement leads to improvement.

  5. Make an example” playlist. Find video of a premier league player with the perfect shooting form and save it as a playlist to use as inspiration for your team.
