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.
