Lacrosse | Required Recording Workflow

Check out these recording requirements and tips to make sure you get the best video for your team and for Hudl Assist.

The Right Equipment

  • Invest in up-to-date equipment like a high-definition (HD) camera or newer iPad for reliable recording and high-quality video.
  • Use a tripod so you have a stable, smooth stream when recording and reviewing video. No one wants to watch an entire game of shaky video.

What to Record

  • Capture the entire field and zoom in when you can but, try not to miss any of the action.
  • Record the scoreboard as often as possible and always at the end of every quarter and/or half.
  • Capture as many referee signals as possible.
  • Make sure jersey numbers are visible.

Where to Record From

  • Set up a hard recording device at midfield, about 10 rows up or from the pressbox.
  • Record from a vantage point that shows all players on the field.
  • Limit potential obstructions to the camera: fans, equipment, etc.

Tips for Recording with an iPad

  • Make sure you have the latest version of the Hudl app.
  • Check the iPad for software updates.
  • Clean up the storage on your iPad to make room for your game (6-8 GBs of free storage).

Reasons Your Game Might be Rejected by Assist

  • If you submit a scrimmage that does not follow normal game rules.
  • The video is out of order.
  • The zoom of the video prevents us from seeing the whole field.
  • The game is filmed from a bad angle.
  • There is something in the way of the camera.
  • There are multiple games in one event.

If the analyst is unable to break down a game due to poor quality, we’ll return it so you can upload a new copy. Turnaround time will no longer be guaranteed.

Example | Rejected Angles

Video angles between the accepted and rejected will be tagged or rejected based on the analyst's discretion. If tagged, there may be discrepancies with blocks, deflections, shot location, jersey numbers, etc.
