Athletic Recruiting Video to help you land a scholarship
Sports Video Coverage for your High School Athlete
Your athlete has spent years preparing for college sports; get a video that properly shows their skills! If your high school athlete is thinking about a college scholarship, they will need a recruiting video to help market themselves. A video that captures the coach’s attention and lets them know what your athlete can do for their program! For some players, recruiting videos are the first or only opportunity to make an impression on a coach, so it needs to be a great one! Having a quality athletic recruiting video or highlight video is a crucial aspect of recruiting for all team sports, and many individual sports as well. Statistics and awards look good on paper but having a video package for a coach to review could mean the difference between being an active prospect and being one among a hundred of emails in a coach’s inbox.
You film, we edit!
Friends and family of the athlete can film hours of games and practices and consumer recording devices provide good enough quality to work with. The athlete can go through the hours of footage and select, what s/he thinks the best segments. We take these segments and professionally enhance, correct and nicely edit them together.
We create high quality recruitment videos, highlight videos, game film, and more for high school and college athletes and teams throughout Canada. At Gift Video Production, we help great athletes get noticed! We make sure that the coach doesn’t turn your video off due to poor quality or bad editing.
Our production processes include slow-motion and stop-action techniques to showcase your skills and capabilities. We’ll also include a brief summary of athletic and academic achievements to help introduce your athlete’s background.
Highlight video vs. skills video
A highlight video is exactly that: Clips of your game footage that highlight your talent and skill. These videos are important because they save coaches time by allowing them to quickly review hundreds of student-athletes without having to visit them in person.
A skills video, unlike a highlight video, includes a series of staged sport-specific actions outside of a game setting. It is not necessary for every sport or position but can be a helpful way to demonstrate to coaches your technical abilities and mastery of a key skill.
Athletic Recruiting Reels include:
- Athlete bio and achievements
- Slow motion effect, that emphasizes on the athlete’s skill
- Frame freeze to capture an outstanding moment
- Background music to set the mood and tempo
- Contact info of the athlete
- Highlight of the player, because coaches need to focus on you
At Gift Video Production, we offer professional editing for all your footage. However, we love sports and we make sure our highlight videos stand out from the crowd. Check out our extensive blog on sport filming, sport videos and some of our athletic highlight reels.
