This summer is all about sharing the tools to help basketball players crush another offseason, which is why we’ve partnered with the experts over at PGC. A few weeks ago we shared our first skill drill, the Gauntlet (be sure to check it out here), and the more we thought about it, we realized there really is no better follow-up than the One-Minute Finish.
In sports, everybody knows that communication is key – whether it’s chatter on the field or a clear-cut practice schedule. But coaches can be quick to go silent in the offseason, or stick to the kinds of communication they’re used to, even if there’s an easier way. Twitter and Facebook are some of the easiest tools to keep lines of communication open between coaching staffs, athletes, parents, and fans. Here’s a handful of ways coaches can really up their internet game in gearing up for another season.
We did a little digging and realized more than a quarter of our football users (coaches and athletes) are accessing Hudl via the free mobile app for Android. That’s a pretty good chunk of people with no Playbook on the go, and we’re firm believers in making everything mobile. How else are you supposed to pass the time in a waiting room, or on a road trip with your show tune-obsessed family?
We’re pumped to announce that we’ve partnered with PGC to bring amazing basketball content to our coaches, complete with biweekly blog posts featuring quick, easy drills designed to help athletes level up in the offseason. Each article will include a video of the drill in action, the main points to hit on as the drill is being run, and its overall goal.
After hitting up nine cities to interact with nearly 700 coaches across the country, our fourth annual Hudl Up Tour has officially come to a close. If you looked closely, you may have noticed the 2015 tour was structured differently than years past, and we learned quite a bit in the process. Here’s what went down.
Redmond High School (Ore.) Athletic Director and football coach Nathan Stanley was digging around his Hudl account, hoping to uncover a few new tricks, when he came across the Campaigns feature. It has everything a team needs to create a custom donation page, making fundraising easier than ever before.
Because the NFL Draft kicks off today, we wanted to share a very special #TBT mashup featuring this year’s top prospects. Before Sundays were ever within reach, these athletes were dominating under Friday night lights, climbing the ranks to prove they were ready for a much bigger stage.
Kids today have it pretty easy. With smartphones as the norm, anyone can access the Internet anytime, anywhere. It’s made studying so simple, it’s practically second nature. A few taps of the touchscreen and boom – all the info they need to learn a little and improve a lot is available in a matter of seconds. Think I’m talking schoolwork? Think again.
Finally, we wrap up our review of the 2015 high school basketball state champions with a visit to the West Coast. Every other region so far has given us some astounding buzzer-beaters, true underdog stories, and powerhouse schools that can’t be beat. Serving as the grand finale, it’s only right that the west include a little of everything.
