WHY A SKILLS VIDEO?
Did you ever try to watch your daughter play in a field hockey game and just before she scored the game winning goal you lost sight of her behind three other players? That’s why for some sports a SKILLS VIDEO is the answer. A skills video would be edited clips of “staged” sport-specific drills or actions such as swinging a bat, defending a lacrosse opponent, a series of your golf swings, or your start in the 100 meter breaststroke.
HOW DO I CREATE A SKILLS VIDEO?
Start by creating a list of what sport-specific drills or skills a college coach would want to see. (*There is a section in the Coaches Circle program that will help you with that). Go to the “film room” and choose your sport from the drop down menu and print out the list. You may also add additional skills or drills that you think may be helpful in your evaluation.
