6 Ways Video Can Help Sports Parents

Share This Resource

Parents play an essential role in youth sports and can benefit from having the best tools to support their players. Using video as a sports parent can help you move past cheering in the stands to taking your athlete (and the entire team) to the next level. Here’s how:

1. Remove Bias: Fight parent bias by using video to have an accurate view of your player’s strengths and weaknesses. Watching video on Hudl after the game pinpoints how athletes can improve once the emotion of the game has died out.

2. Gain a Coach’s Perspective: Parents and coaches may not always see eye-to-eye, but Hudl can give parents insight into coaching decisions. Not only will the video show what players need to improve, but comments added by coaches can help parents gain a coach’s perspective.

3. Positive Reinforcement Reinforce the encouragement or criticism from your player’s coaches. With access to video and coaching comments on Hudl, you can echo the points made by coaches and avoid sending conflicting messages to athletes.
