Gain an Edge with This New Visu­al Report for Volleyball

Our newest report for vol­ley­ball teams shows you the start point, end point and result for every attack in a match.

This was a bad match. Bad match,” Zoe Bell said when she saw her team’s attack ten­den­cies report for the first time. Wow. Rota­tion three we were real­ly left side. Back row attacked a lot. This is a lot dif­fer­ent than what I thought it would be.”

You’d think it would be hard to sur­prise a vet­er­an vol­ley­ball coach of more than 20 years. But even the most expe­ri­enced coach­es ben­e­fit from see­ing a match from a new per­spec­tive. That’s what our new attack ten­den­cies report was built to do. 

New for 2019, the report shows the start-to-fin­ish loca­tion of every attack, whether it was a kill, error or zero attack (an attack kept in play). 


The visu­al report is inspired by Vol­ley­met­rics, the indus­try stan­dard for vol­ley­ball ana­lyt­ics used by the top col­le­giate and pro­fes­sion­al teams around the world. The report’s visu­al design shows the line of an attack’s path from begin­ning to end, giv­ing coach­es the most infor­ma­tion possible.

The attack ten­den­cies report comes with new fil­ters for rota­tion, result and phase (first ball or tran­si­tion), as well as fil­ters for match, set, team and play­er. The report will be includ­ed in Hudl Assist match break­downs, which are done by pro­fes­sion­al ana­lysts and returned in 12 – 24 hours of submission. 

Whether you’re track­ing trends across the sea­son or div­ing into spe­cif­ic ral­lies, these fil­ters help you deter­mine where cer­tain play­ers hit well or which rota­tions your team strug­gles in. It’s key for improv­ing your own play­ers, but the attack ten­den­cies report is also a pow­er­ful scout­ing tool.

This is the best scout­ing data I’ve ever had,” Alex Simons, anoth­er long-time coach said. This means for every oppo­nent who we play more than once, which is quite a few teams, I could show my team their attack pat­terns. They deflect­ed a lot of balls off our blocks to get kills. We’d design our defense pat­terns dif­fer­ent­ly. This play­er got five kills and hit .385. No errors. You can design a defense to shut her down. Just tell your team, if she’s front row, don’t do any­thing else, just block over there and dig!”

Whether you’re scout­ing your oppo­nents or plan­ning your team’s next prac­tice, the visu­als of the new report allow you to uncov­er ten­den­cies in min­utes. You can save even more time by using Assist to gen­er­ate your report with addi­tion­al stats.
