Stats are essen­tial to your suc­cess and our reports ensure you get the infor­ma­tion you need.

Fifteen years ago, the con­cept of a smart­phone was ludi­crous. The thought that you could have a pock­et-sized device that made calls, gave direc­tions and pro­vid­ed access to the Internet was com­plete­ly foreign.

But tech­nol­o­gy advances quick­ly, and now going a day with­out your phone would cause seri­ous prob­lems with your work­flow. The chang­ing of the times has made this once-rev­o­lu­tion­ary item a part of our day-to-day lives.

Coaches tell us that’s the kind of impact our sta­tis­ti­cal reports pos­sess. They have the poten­tial to be true game chang­ers, and in a few years you won’t be able to imag­ine life with­out them.

So don’t get left behind! Get famil­iar with and start uti­liz­ing these reports now. Using the num­bers and the con­nect­ed video will give you an added edge over every team on your schedule.

Our com­plete­ly over­hauled sta­tis­tic reports give you the knowl­edge required to adjust your game plan and find holes in the opponent’s armor. To explain their pow­er indi­vid­u­al­ly, we’ll break down each report by:

  • What it does for you

  • Why it’s helpful

  • When it’s most useful

  • How you can unlock the report — live tag­ging, tag­ging after the game or through Hudl Assist

  • Who loves it — a quote from a fel­low coach

Stats — Insights Just Waiting to be Discovered

What: This is the go-to hub for your sta­tis­tics. Whether you’re look­ing for tra­di­tion­al num­bers such as rebounds and turnovers, or div­ing deep into effec­tive field goal per­cent­age and defen­sive rebound­ing per­cent­age, you can find key sta­tis­tics here.

Why: You can sort through a par­tic­u­lar por­tion of the sea­son or look at each athlete’s indi­vid­ual pro­duc­tion. A sim­ple click will pull up a playlist show­ing all of the video asso­ci­at­ed with that stat. If your team is strug­gling with rebound­ing, pull up the oppo­nents’ boards to see who isn’t box­ing out. Have a strug­gling point guard? Take a look at his turnovers to help improve his decision-making.

When: Stats are use­ful at any point. Use them before the sea­son tips off to improve on things you strug­gled with last year, in sea­son to make adjust­ments on the fly, or lat­er to mold your game plan going into the fol­low­ing season.

Who: With sports, it’s nice to see an over­all pat­tern. One game can be misleading.”

Shot Chart — Amp Up Your Offense

What: Any shoot­ing insights can be found here. Whether you’re look­ing for each player’s hot spot or fig­ur­ing out where an oppo­nent goes cold, shot charts are the per­fect way to iden­ti­fy a team’s marksmanship.

Why: No mat­ter how good your defense is, you can’t win games with­out scor­ing, and shot charts help you put play­ers in the best posi­tion to suc­ceed. Shot charts also give you access to playlists of attempts from each loca­tion. Is your team strug­gling from mid-range? Maybe your spac­ing is too crowd­ed or your pass­es need to be crisper. Shot charts can show you.

When: Identify how and where to get your play­ers the ball and put them in the best posi­tion to be suc­cess­ful. It’s pos­si­ble your cen­ter is much more effi­cient from the right block than the left, or your star shoot­er excels on oppor­tu­ni­ties from the top of the key as opposed to the cor­ner. Identifying these trends dur­ing the sea­son can help shape your offense.

Who: I find myself using it to struc­ture my shoot­ing drills bet­ter. You’ve got to become a bal­anced team and be able to hit shots from everywhere.”

Box Score — Game-by-game Goodness

What: This is the per­fect hub for check­ing out indi­vid­ual games. The box score includes stats for both teams, shot charts, quar­ter-by-quar­ter scor­ing and the run graph, paint­ing a com­plete pic­ture of the contest.

Why: Season-long reports are great, but some­times you need to zone in on one game. The box score is a great tool for dis­cov­er­ing how your point guard became so hot from the field, why your team had so many turnovers, or when the tide turned in the contest.

When: Check in after a game to break down how your team per­formed. If you’re fac­ing an oppo­nent for a sec­ond time, look back at the first box score to see how you can improve.

How: Live tag­ging, tag­ging after the game, Hudl Assist

Who: I think the No. 1 thing that we look at a lot is the ben­e­fit of quick­ly being able to look at impor­tant infor­ma­tion like turnovers. Being able to go into the report and look­ing at a par­tic­u­lar game and click­ing on turnovers and just hav­ing it pop­u­late that data, that was a huge help.”

Trends — Find Your Groove

What: The trend report is a visu­al rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the highs and lows for each sta­tis­tic over the course of a sea­son. You can track how you’re per­form­ing game-by-game and how you stack up against opponents.

Why: This is a great in-sea­son tool to deter­mine whether cer­tain adjust­ments are work­ing or need to be improved. Is your new up-tem­po offense help­ing your assist/​turnover ratio? Has the 2 – 3 zone you imple­ment­ed two weeks ago lim­it­ed your oppo­nents’ shoot­ing? The trend reports make find­ing out a breeze.

When: Track your progress through­out the sea­son to find out why your team is surg­ing or struggling.

How: Live tag­ging, tag­ging after the game, Hudl Assist

Who: I always look for trends. Hudl was direct­ly respon­si­ble in the ease of being able to locate those inad­e­qua­cies and be able to adjust them through­out practice.”

Goals — Set em and Track em

What: Determine which stats mat­ter most to your team and track them through­out the sea­son. You can eval­u­ate based on team goals (ex: shoot 70 per­cent from the free throw line as a team) or an oppo­nent (ex: have few­er turnovers than North High).

Why: Each coach sets dif­fer­ent bench­marks for his team. Hudl just makes them eas­i­er to track. Instead of check­ing on the goals your­self, let us do it. One click allows you to watch video of plays con­tribut­ing to that goal, help­ing you deter­mine how you met the mark or why you fell short.

When: Set your goals before the sea­son, mon­i­tor them through­out and eval­u­ate your progress at the end.

How: Live tag­ging, tag­ging after the game, Hudl Assist

Who: I don’t focus on the win. I focus on the things that make you win, like shoot­ing over a cer­tain per­cent­age or hold­ing the oth­er team under a cer­tain percentage.”

Don’t get left in the dust. Get involved with sta­tis­tics and expe­ri­ence the ben­e­fits for yourself.
