Name Your Formations

Name the for­ma­tion dia­grams you receive from Hudl Assist and spec­i­fy the strength. Then name your back­field dia­grams (or enter sep­a­rate names based on the strength).

This data will return in the OFF FORM, OFF STR, and BACKFIELD columns in your library. Name them all to receive more detailed ten­den­cy reports.

  1. Log in to Hudl​.com, hov­er over Team and select Team Settings.

    You can also access these from your library by click­ing Manage Formations above your break­down data, or click Name Diagrams in the email you received from Assist.

  2. Click Formation Names.

  3. Name Formations

    Hover over a for­ma­tion dia­gram and click EditIf you want to start nam­ing back­fields, click here for instructions.

  4. Enter your Formation Name. Don’t include the offen­sive strength in your for­ma­tion name here – it will return inac­cu­rate data. 

    Use the fil­ters at the top of the page to quick­ly find dia­grams by Base Formation or Backfield, or fil­ter to all the Unnamed or Named cards. 

  5. When it’s an unbal­anced for­ma­tion, choose whether the strength is Left  or Right. Track the strength how­ev­er your team defines it – whether that’s based on your tight ends or wide receivers.

  6. Name Your Backfield

    To name a back­field, hov­er over a back­field dia­gram and click the Edit. 

  7. If your back­field name is depen­dent on for­ma­tion strength (e.g. Gun Far, Gun Near), check the box next to Add names based on for­ma­tion strength. 

  8. Give the back­field up to three sep­a­rate names based on the strength of the formation. 

  9. Now ana­lysts will draw each play­er in the back­field to cre­ate back­field dia­grams for you to name through­out the season.
