DRAFT - State Association Video Exchange Communication

To: Athletic Directors and Head Football Coaches


Subject: Hudl Exchange Pool

Hudl and the AHSAA have created a pilot video exchange program for the 2021 State Playoffs.

As a part of the pilot, all member schools that qualify for the 2021 AHSAA Football State Championships will have the option to upload game video from all contests played, Round 1 through the Championships, using the new Hudl Exchange Pool.

Teams will upload game film each week and in turn 'unlock' access to all film that has been added to their classification pool and can be immediately added to the team's library.

The Hudl Exchange Pool creates the opportunity to share and view film equitably throughout their classification and will provide a training and education resource for use by AHSAA staff and local officials associations around the state. In addition to the Hudl Exchange Pool, teams can also exchange video directly with each other.

Hudl has created a tutorial that walks you through how to add film to the pool as well as pull film to add to your library. You can find the tutorial at the link below:

Hudl also has a support team willing to assist you with any Hudl, Hudl Sideline, Hudl Focus, or the other Hudl products you may be using. Find support information at

Good luck to all teams moving forward.
