Ask A College Coach   

What formats do you recommend players submit videos (youtube, dvd, etc.)?


Youtube. With good resolution. Anything else takes too long.

Anything that they can provide online with quick easy access is the best method these days.  I haven’t really received many DVD’s and/or jump drives in the past 5 years or so.  Things have changed

On­line video links are best.  I don’t think many coaches are using DVD’s anymore.

Youtube. Definitely not dvd.

Online seems to be the easiest these days, a simple You Tube Video of some highlights followed by 10­-20 minutes of unedited film works well.

Introduction, then I like highlight reels in the beginning to grab attention, live game footage...then a separate skills footage link.

A link to YouTube is perfect.  I get 25‐40 recruiting e‐mails a day.  I couldn’t possibly open that many DVD’s and watch them.

I would definitely recommend YouTube or another online format. I tend to lose DVD’s and online video is great because I can pull it up and watch it whenever I need to easily. Some coaches differ in their opinions, but I strongly prefer longer game film clips as opposed to a “highlight reel” or “skills tapes.” I want to not only see a players good “highlight” plays but also their aggressive mistakes and how they react to them and recover from them. I want to see how players interact with their teammates and coaches. I want to see decision making in multiple plays in a row, not just one 3 second clip. It’s great to include really good performances, but it isn’t a realistic representation of that player in my opinion. Also – great graphics and editing and music is completely unnecessary.

YouTube is great...anything that can be seen on a MAC!

I like youtube. Upload a full game with the time between serves edited out. I need to see all of your good and bad plays from a game. If you are a setter, make it a full match.

You tube links are fine as long as the Privacy settings are squared away. I still can watch DVD’s as well. Links to Hudl and other recruiting links are fine too.
