WHAT SHOULD I INCLUDE IN THE VIDEO I SUBMIT?
Submitted videos should be High Definition. The perspective should feature your player like our samples. Please include footage from 3-4 games. this should not be a highlight reel of goals only. Believe it or not, scouts and coaches are not necessarily interested in such clips
Videos should include forecheck, back check, offensive zone, neutral zone, face offs, defensive zone play. passing plays, outlet passes. In short a complete game.
Please provide us with full game footage featuring only your player and our experts will edit the footage.
