Football | Recommended Recording Workflow

Check out these record­ing tips to ensure you get the best Assist break­downs possible.

How to record

  • Use high-def­i­n­i­tion, if possible.
  • Include audio in your record­ing — it helps ana­lysts break down your game. 
  • If a tele­pho­to lens is avail­able, attach it to your cam­era to improve film quality. 
  • Keep things in focus — ana­lysts can’t tag what they can’t see. 

What to record

  • Capture down mark­ers on every play. 
  • Catch the score­board often, at least after every quar­ter and prefer­ably after every scor­ing drive. 

Where to record

  • Align your cam­era or iPad with the cen­ter of the field.
  • Find a van­tage point that clear­ly shows all players.
  • Capture the entire field — try to avoid zoom­ing in/​out. 
  • Limit poten­tial obstruc­tions to the cam­era (e.g., fans or oth­er equipment). 

Was your game rejected? Here’s why

  • You sub­mit­ted a scrim­mage that didn’t fol­low the rules of the game.
  • The plays weren’t in order. 
  • The plays sub­mit­ted were only for one side of the ball. 
  • There weren’t yard lines, or the yard lines weren’t marked clearly. 
  • Yard lines were only drawn every 10 yards.
  • The game was only record­ed from an end zone angle.

If an ana­lyst isn’t able to break down a game, we’ll return it to the coach­es so they can upload a new copy. The orig­i­nal turn­around time won’t be guaranteed.
