Ursuline Academy Controls the Boards and Builds for the Future with Hudl

Nora Brooks says build­ing a rou­tine with video and data at every lev­el helps ath­letes key in on areas of improve­ment, as well as rein­force win­ning habits.

For Coach Nora Brooks and the Ursuline Academy girls’ bas­ket­ball pro­gram, video is the key to build­ing good habits, break­ing bad habits and prepar­ing play­ers for the next lev­el. The JV team pre­pares with video in the same way Varsity does, and cre­at­ing a con­sis­tent expe­ri­ence in the pro­gram while also help­ing play­ers learn and adapt quicker.

By cel­e­brat­ing win­ning plays and study­ing areas of improve­ment togeth­er, Brooks knows she’s help­ing play­ers accel­er­ate their development.

Winning the rebound bat­tle comes down to two con­cepts: men­tal tough­ness and dis­ci­pline. For the Bears, ebound­ing isn’t just the key to win­ning, it also unlocks extra play­ing time. Here’s how Brooks and her coach­ing staff empha­size this cru­cial aspect of the game.
