Coach­es share how Assist gave them time back

Matt Mar­ru­jo has a lot on his plate. When he’s not coach­ing or teach­ing at Servite High School (Calif.), he’s also a coach for the Bal­boa Bay Vol­ley­ball Club. Time isn’t some­thing Mar­ru­jo has much of, so when the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sign up for the first round of Hudl Assist for vol­ley­ball came up, he jumped all over it. 

Both my assis­tant and I are full time high school teach­ers so any­thing that can cut down time for us as teach­ers and coach­es we’re def­i­nite­ly look­ing into how to bal­ance every­thing,” Mar­ru­jo said. Oth­er­wise we’d spend all of our time at home or lat­er at night doing our scout stuff on oppo­nents. We’re able to do what used to take two-three hours in 20 – 30 min­utes and still have the same lev­el of infor­ma­tion as we did before.”

The abil­i­ty to turn in game or scout film and get it back with­in 24 hours has giv­en coach­es like Mar­ru­jo more time to focus on play­er development.

We have two set­ters and they use it the most. It’s been cool to have dia­logue through Hudl with them on some tech­nique stuff because they’re young,” Mar­ru­jo said. Those two have improved a lot tech­ni­cal­ly, going from watch­ing their own film, giv­ing us feed­back on what they’re doing what they want to work on going forward.”

Sid David­son, head boys’ vol­ley­ball coach at St. John Bosco High School (Calif.) is able to use the infor­ma­tion from Assist to dri­ve home his coach­ing points.

We call it the evi­dence: Stats don’t lie. I call it a lie detec­tor,” David­son said. When things are going down we throw it out there. Say Look guys, what I’ve been telling you dur­ing a match is def­i­nite­ly evi­dent right here, and this is you on film, and this is your hit­ting percentage.’”

David­son has seen the results on the court. The infor­ma­tion returned from Assist cov­ers team stats as well as indi­vid­ual, so coach­es can focus on the big pic­ture as well as indi­vid­ual needs.

We’ve def­i­nite­ly cut down on our ser­vice errors. We’re more cau­tious of our serv­ing. Our loca­tions that we’re try­ing to hit that’s def­i­nite­ly improved,” David­son said. Indi­vid­u­al­ly a lot of guys are look­ing at their arm swings, look­ing at when they go into an approach when they see the ball being released from the setter.”

Both David­son and Mar­ru­jo see the ben­e­fits of Assist for all coach­es. We can notice when it’s set five and it’s 10 – 10 the ten­den­cies of what a hit­ter actu­al­ly does that will def­i­nite­ly ben­e­fit us in cer­tain rota­tions. I just think it’s easy to access and a lot of coach­es are unaware that vol­ley­ball has this kind of tool,” David­son said.

I think any high school coach that also teach­es would be fool­ish to not be using it,” Mar­ru­jo said. It’s so user friend­ly, it’s fast, it def­i­nite­ly brings a high­er lev­el to your pro­gram. I tell all the peo­ple I work with pay for the ser­vice it will save you time and let you do a good job with your team.”

We’re excit­ed to con­tin­ue work­ing with more teams as we open Hudl Assist to any­one. Con­tact your sales rep, or click the link to find out more information.
