The Playbook application is designed to be simple and easy to use for all members of your team. Many coaches create their playbooks using a favorite website or playbook application or even using software such as Microsoft PowerPoint or Word. Most applications and websites allow you to export your playbooks as PDF which you can then upload into WatchGameFilm. Once uploaded, teams can index their playbook making it easy for coaches and athletes to search for specific plays or phrases.
Our approach to the Playbook application is to be as open and possible, allowing you to upload many playbooks to your team and breaking them down in a way that is useful to you. In addition to offensive plays, most playbooks contain play call vernacular, schemes, defensive formations, etc. Uploading your playbooks to WatchGameFilm allows you to distribute your playbook to your coaches and players as well as attach specific playbook pages to your film so that your team can better understand what you are trying to convey on film.
