Video resources

The Sanford Pentagon is the first multi-sport club facility in the country to utilize Hudl Focus cameras and offer Hudl services to all its basketball and volleyball teams. It’s all part of a club-wide subscription that includes Hudl’s coaching tools, Hudl Assist’s stat breakdowns and Focus smart cameras, which will allow parents and fans to livestream games and practices.

Hudl Focus cameras will allow for live streaming of all basketball tournaments through the Sanford Pentagon video portal. Production level and pricing may vary. 

Hudl’s club-wide package gives every team access to the same cutting-edge video analysis and recruiting resources. Coaches have the ability to self-scout their own game and practice film, then use customized feedback to teach their team off the court. When players have the chance to learn from video, they’ll be better equipped to develop their skills on the court and reach the next level.
