Video Upload Program
One of the best development tools for any referee is a video analysis of specific plays or entire games. The ABOA Video Upload Portal allows members to upload a short clip (less than 2 minutes) with a specific question and it will be answered by a member of the Education & Evaluation Team, free of charge. Alternatively, for a fee of $25, a clip of up to 15 minutes may be uploaded for a Partial Game Evaluation. An approved Evaluator will look at a minimum of ten (10) minutes of playing time or one (1) quarter.
Need help to get your games taped or access to game tape? Bring a friend along and have them tape your game on a camera, smart phone or tablet. Also, many coaches or organizations tape games for player training and development purposes. Try to approach coaches before the game to see if you can have access to the game tape. Don’t forget to take a memory (USB) stick with you to your games for fast and immediate file sharing.
Need help to make video clips once you have game tape? There are a number of free programs available on the internet. We recommend VLC media player and it is free. You can download it here.
