Athletic Recruiting Video to help your athlete land an athletic scholarship
There is no denying the crucial role athletic recruiting videos can play for many student-athletes in their recruiting process. College coaches are extremely busy. It would be impossible for them to evaluate every potential recruit in person. Highlight videos are a chance to get student-athletes in front of coaches. Recruiting videos give the coaches an unbiased look at their skills and abilities. It’s a fact that online recruiting profiles that include a highlight video receive more than 10 times as much traffic as those without one. A great highlight video can sometimes be a difference-maker that gets a student-athlete some serious attention from college coaches.
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
