Video. Stats. How does a time-strapped lacrosse coach put the two together to produce meaningful analysis?

Say hello to Hudl.

A recent addition to the family of US Lacrosse and U.S. national team partners, Hudl combines game film, in-depth team stats and individual athletes’ performance. Hudl’s cloud-based platform allows teams to access video and data anywhere at any time, share it with players and make playlists of what matters most.

Major League Lacrosse’s Denver Outlaws previously used Krossover, which Hudl acquired from Stack Sports on May 9, for several years. Outlaws general manager and head coach Tony Seaman called it one of the keys to their 2018 championship season.

“Since we don’t meet during the week with our players, it affords us the opportunity to keep in touch with them with game breakdowns from the previous week‘s game as well as individual clips of upcoming opponents,” Seaman said. “The film editor allows our coaches to make notes as well as highlight all aspects of our games, from extra-man situations to faceoffs.”

Using Hudl, coaches can better understand game trends and use that knowledge to teach their athletes.

“It’s a powerful tool to help guys with their lacrosse IQ and help them understand who they are as players,” said Will Corrigan, assistant coach at Washington and Lee.

Hudl’s suite of products includes not only its flagship cloud-based, mobile-friendly platform for video sharing and review, but also Hudl Assist, which supplies professional analysts to break down your film for you within 24 hours. “It was great to have [Hudl Assist] on days that I didn’t have time to go through myself,” said Mike Gardiner, the former coach at Virginia Episcopal School.


Three key advantages of Hudl:

  • Your account, your way. Hudl provides a faster, more flexible upload process that gives you more control over your video. Access all of your video from the updated library page and organize it the way you want with custom labels.

  • Tie stats to video. Use web tagging to add stats to your video during review. Hudl will use those stats to find important moments and automatically create reports for more efficient review. Don’t want to tag the game yourself? Hudl Assist can help.

  • Find game-changing insights. Hudl’s new interactive reports make it easy to uncover insights for a competitive edge. Select any stat to watch key moments from a single game or the whole season.

As part of the partnership with US Lacrosse, Hudl’s analytics and video breakdowns will be utilized by the U.S. national team coaches and the National Team Development Program. The same offerings will be available to US Lacrosse members and programs at a discounted rate.

“We are able to clip out specific instances and personalize clips to each player and staff member in real-time for instant viewing and evaluating,” U.S. women’s senior team coach Jenny Levy said. “Hudl is a convenient and effective platform.”
