Lacrosse | Required Recording Workflow
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.
