Video Tool Scouting Exports and Best Practices 

After you and your staff have watched film and scouted the opposing offense it will be time to import your scouting information into the DC1 tool.  There are some best practices to do utilize to optimize your DC1 experience:

                          Hudl Scouting

Create a Consolidated Scout List

  1. Create an "Offensive Playlist" to consolidate all of the opposing offense plays in one list.

  2. In the Hudl tool, select all films that you are scouting

  3. Once the individual games are selected, change the "ODK" to "O"

  4. Click on "Save Playlist" to left hand side above clips and name the playlist.  Typically this playlist is named "Opposing Team Name Offense" and kept under "Opponent Scout".  So if playing East High this week.  We would have all East High Scout films consolidated and all D & K clips filtered out and this playlist would be called "East Offense".

  5. Remember to share this new playlist with the other coaches on your staff.
