While searching for great skills videos to place on the site, I was dismayed to see an awful lot of videos that would have been perfect if one or two aspects were tweaked.  Actually, it was very hard finding a video that was excellent in all aspects, so I created this guide to help you stay focused on making a tape that properly showcases your abilities and will most likely appeal to your prospective program.

In no way is this compilation of videos meant to make light of the athletes or the videos’ creators.  This is just a guide that points out areas of improvement and gives suggestions for better highlight tapes.  A well produced skills tape can make or break your recruiting chances if you are not already known in your area.

 

Include an Introduction

 

 

This video is a great display of the athlete’s skills.  The problem is there’s no introduction.  Give the audience a chance to get to know you and your personality with a short 30 sec to 1 minute intro.  This video is all work.  It needs to be balanced with a short bio of the athlete so that the audience can couple that information with the excellent display of skills.
