A Tutorial on How to Use HUDL

Posted on October 26, 2017 / Posted under Basketball, General

Make sure you advise Art Kasak or Joe Fritisch of the following information:

  • The day you are working
  • The level you are working
  • The Home Team (and location if not at home)
  • The Away Team

If you want to send your schedule on a week by week basis, that is fine but try to get it to them before your game happens so they can request the film for you. Teams have responded within minutes of a request.

Don’t be shy about sending me your entire schedule.  Do request sophomore or freshman games.  We can get those.

Only members of the AOA get film through this system.
