Game plan­ning is nev­er as impor­tant or rig­or­ous as it is come play­off time. You spend hours upon hours dis­sect­ing video, look­ing for the tini­est crack in your opponent’s scheme to give you the edge you need to move onto the next round.

Now imag­ine, for a moment, the abil­i­ty to peer into your rival’s play­book, to peel back the out­er lay­ers of their scheme and get a detailed break­down of their tendencies.

Hudl can’t lit­er­al­ly steal your opponent’s play­book, but we have the next best thing. By sub­mit­ting your opponent’s game to Hudl Assist, you’ll receive detailed break­downs on your foe’s run/​pass ratio, play direc­tion ten­den­cies, favorite play types and so much more. 

Check Out Your Opponents

Even if you already faced the team once dur­ing the sea­son, their offense may have evolved since then. Comparing games from both ear­ly and late in the sea­son shows how their scheme has changed and could reveal poten­tial curve­balls they’ll throw this time around.

With access to your opponent’s most impor­tant plays, you can build playlists that spot­light them and alert your team for things to look out for. Encourage your ath­letes to study these playlists and keep them account­able by fol­low­ing their usage under team man­age­ment.

Once game time arrives, your ath­letes will have a great idea of what they’re like­ly to see as they hit the field, giv­ing you a leg up on the competition.

Scout Your Team

The sea­son is long and exhaust­ing – it can be easy to for­get or sim­ply miss some trends on your own squad through­out the year. Get your mind right by reex­am­in­ing your team’s ten­den­cies, strengths and weak­ness­es to iron out any poten­tial kinks for the postseason.

Your oppo­nents will be scout­ing you heav­i­ly, and Assist break­downs will give you exact­ly what they see. If you run 85 per­cent of the time on third and short, the oppos­ing coach will know that. A sit­u­a­tion may come up where you can sur­prise him with a play action.

Or maybe you real­ize you don’t blitz often on third down, typ­i­cal­ly play­ing it safe and trust­ing your cov­er­age. This could be the per­fect time to bring some extra pres­sure and rat­tle the oppos­ing passer.

Build the Hype

A killer home field advan­tage can make the dif­fer­ence in a play­off game, so get your fan base pumped with a eye-pop­ping hype video. Assist break­downs make find­ing spe­cial plays through­out the sea­son a breeze—one click is all that sep­a­rates you from the exact moments you seek.

This makes it incred­i­bly easy to com­pile your team’s best plays and craft a hype video to get your fans rock­ing. Share it on social media and send it to local TV sta­tions to ensure you get the expo­sure you need.

Ultimately, what tran­spires in the play­offs will define your sea­son. You would do any­thing to ensure your team is com­plete­ly pre­pared and play­ing at its peak. Assist will help you max­i­mize your post­sea­son poten­tial. See first­hand what Assist can do for you.
