How to Create an Outstanding Highlight Video

  • Keep it relatively short. A five-minute recruiting video is probably long enough to convey your skills.
  • Post your video with your online resume. Don’t send coaches unsolicited DVDs or expect to be seen on YouTube. When a highlight video is posted on a trusted recruiting site like HFH-FLORIDA, that video will be seen by college coaches.
  • Know what coaches are looking for. Different sports require different approaches. For example, baseball and softball coaches aren’t looking for game footage, but rely heavily on clips that show your specific skills.
  • Show a wide range of skills. Use clips that show you’re a well-rounded athlete.
  • Video quality is important. Try to make sure your highlights are clear and that you are easy to see.
  • Simplicity can go a long way. Start the video with a short intro with your name, school and contact information, but don’t get too fancy.

How to Collect Clips and Video

Before the season starts, ask your coach if he/she takes video. Also, ask the parents of teammates for any video that they’ve shot. Collect video clips from both throughout the season and edit out everything except for your best highlights.

If you plan on having a family member or friend shoot video make sure they get quality clips. Choose angles that ensure a clear view of the court of playing field. And make sure that your videographer isn’t too far away from the action to tell who you are.
