We’ve heard from our users that setting and tracking goals is a key part of coaching. It’s vital to know how you compare to your opponents, as well as your current progress on any season goals you’ve set.
“Every good staff has team goals. Not talking about winning a championship. Maybe it’s limiting possessions. Maybe it’s rebounding. It’s those stats or those goals. You have season goals and individual game goals.”
If you already use Hudl to tag your games, you can now track those statistical goals in tandem with team and player reports. Our new Goals tab makes it easy to gauge how your team is progressing, making it easier to create, share and monitor achievements throughout the season.
“We’re focused on individual and team goals because that’s how we’re going to get better.”
These goals have been divided into two types: comparative and numerical.
Comparative goals enable you to directly evaluate your stats against your opponents. Simply select two stat types with greater than, less than or equal to options. Say one of your team goals is to always have a lower turnover percentage than your opponent. Set a goal saying “Our TO% is less than our opponent’s TO%,” save it, use Hudl to track your stats, then check in as the results from each game automatically update that goal’s progress.
Set a goal around a single number or percentage, essentially judging your team against itself. For example, you want a free throw percentage of 60% or better in all of your games. It works the same as your comparative goals: create and save the goal, then tag your games with the Hudl app for those results to automatically update your progress. With the help of those numbers, you can now focus on how to help your team reach its goal.
You’ll see your Goals tab from the Reports page when you’re logged in to Hudl from a computer. The Xs and check marks make it easy to see whether or not your team met a given goal in the last game. Hover your mouse over the symbol to see the exact numbers – no extra work or calculations on your part.
Ensure your entire team is on pace with the options to share and print. Decide a goal you created is no longer necessary? Delete it with a couple of clicks.
All teams on the newest version of Hudl can start creating and monitoring their goals today. Want to see these goals in action? Check out our tutorial.
