Powerchalk Video Telestrator Website

I came across this site a few weeks back and it is awesome

Sometimes it’s just easier to have your players look at video to make them understand what went wrong on a play and many of us just don’t have the time to do chalk talk sessions every week or don’t have a facility where we can get our players together and watch video. The PowerChalk® website enables a coach to upload a video and record voice and screen graphics. You can then embed that video in your own website or send an email link to your players so they can not only watch the play but also listen to your analysis of the play. This allows you as a coach to know that your players can watch the video at home so when you get to the next practice you can talk about it. I know I’ve seen a difference with my team after beginning to use this service. I post the video to our team website and have my players watch my analysis of every goal we give up. I talk on the video about where the play broke down and how we should have played in each situation. You can go in slow motion and easily rewind back to specific spots on the video.

The cost is very reasonable. They have a free version that allows you to store ten videos and record your analysis for two minutes. A number of different upgrades are available to store more videos and record longer sessions. I use the 100 video storage and five minute recording features and it works great for me. If you have someone that videos your games then I think this is something you may want to take a look at.


From their website:

PowerChalk® is the first and only web-based sports motion telestrator that lets you upload, markup, and voice-over videos without installing high-priced, hard to use (and harder to configure) software.  Already in use by Major League players and teams, PowerChalk® is changing the face of sports instruction.
