Shorten Your Post-Game Routine by Recording and Uploading with the Hudl App

Volleyball coach­es detail how they are able to spend more time devel­op­ing their team because of the time saved using Hudl’s record­ing and upload­ing features.

Prosper High School (Texas) head coach Erin Kauffman didn’t have to think twice when asked about the ben­e­fits of being able to record and upload direct­ly to Hudl.

During a tour­na­ment, we won our quar­ter­fi­nal match, but my set­ter wasn’t play­ing well and I could tell that she wasn’t see­ing it from my per­spec­tive. She knew she was off but couldn’t feel’ what was wrong,” Kauffman explained. In between the quar­ter­fi­nal and semi­fi­nal match­es, I was able to pull up our match that we just played and show her some clips of her not get­ting her feet squared up which led to her set­ting the ball to our out­side hit­ters incon­sis­tent­ly. She imme­di­ate­ly had an aha!’ moment and played amaz­ing in the semis and finals, and was named All-Tournament Team. And mind you, this was a girl who was in tears after the quar­ter­fi­nals out of frustration.”

Because Kauffman record­ed the match with an iPad, she was able to make the appro­pri­ate adjust­ments and the sto­ry end­ed in a suc­cess for both the team and her setter.

Using the Hudl app to record and upload match­es allows every mem­ber of the team to access the video with­out the has­sle of plug­ging any­thing into a computer.

The app is extreme­ly easy to use. There are many self help videos, but you do not have to use them. Once you sign up you will be video­tap­ing in min­utes,” Bradley Baker, head coach at Benet Academy High School (Ill.), said.

The only thing the iPad needs is a Wi-Fi con­nec­tion. If the gym doesn’t have one or you don’t know the pass­word, it stores on the device until you get home. It cut our upload time by half or more,” Leslie Coltrain, assis­tant coach at Tomball High School (Texas), said. The whole process allowed our coach­es of all teams to be able to film match­es and have them uploaded quick­ly, cut­ting down on time spent in the office after matches.”

The ease at which coach­es can record and upload gives them the time to focus on oth­er aspects of their team. The ease of shar­ing game film makes scout­ing and game plan­ning more effi­cient,” Coltrain said. The abil­i­ty to telestrate and share clips with our team as well as mon­i­tor their activ­i­ty on the app have made both coach­es and play­ers more accountable.”

That account­abil­i­ty comes across in scout­ing upcom­ing oppo­nents, or review­ing your own team. Coaches can link to dif­fer­ent parts of the video via stats, or by mark­ing clips in the match­es, all in an effort to pre­pare their team.

The abil­i­ty to save and mark up video has decreased the time we use when watch­ing film. We can eas­i­ly jump from play to play with our com­ments about the play already writ­ten on the film,” Baker said. Players can watch the video on the com­put­er or on their phones, and with the abil­i­ty to track user activ­i­ty, coach­es can hold those play­ers accountable.

Hudl gives you a com­pet­i­tive advan­tage over teams that do not use it. At a vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment we can look at things and make adjust­ments,” Scott Smith, coach at Cumberland Valley High School (Pa.), said. Even if the adjust­ments come in day two of a three day tourney.”
