As a coach, your job of finding great video equipment shouldn’t be a chore, it’s just a matter of knowing what you are looking for. For example, are you looking for elevated video footage, ground level footage, or aerial drone footage…just to name a few. Once you have the equipment, now you need someone to run it. Who are good candidates to help out? Take a look at a few suggestions below.
The Best Potential Candidates to Help Capture Game Footage
Friends and Family
Some people don’t want to ask friends and family due to having a ‘conflict of interest’ should the quality not come out good. But if you give them time to practice with the equipment before the game and show them how it works, this could be a great option.
Additionally, friends and family are great candidates because they already have the motivation and truly want to help. With you having an existing relationship with them, in most cases they are usually much more open to feedback and collaborative, which can provide great results in the game film.
You may not have a friend or family member who has the time and skill to help you with filming, but you might have team supporters that work on a team’s concession stand crew. In this case, there actually is an opportunity to get solid volunteers.
Concession staff usually consists of parent and student volunteers that want to help out. That means they already see the importance to ‘pitch in’ to help the team. This is a great opportunity to offer them another opportunity to support the team in a much closer role.
Find a Video Recording Partner with Ease!
When it comes to finding a game-recording partner, there are plenty of ways to find somebody who can help. Not every coach has the luxury of having a dedicated video crew to work with, but there are ways to work around it.
You don’t have to have a professional or world-class video crew on your side to create a successful recording of your team’s games.
Once you find the right recording partner, you’ll be able to produce quality footage of your team’s games that you can analyze to run your team.
