Recruiting Videography

Sports Video Coverage for your High School Athlete!

Your athlete has spent years preparing for college sports; get a video that properly shows their skills!

If your high school athlete is thinking about a college scholarship, they will need a recruiting video to help market themselves. A video that captures the coach’s attention and lets them know what your athlete can do for their program! For some players, recruiting videos are the first or only opportunity to make an impression on a coach, so it needs to be a great one!  Be sure the coach doesn’t turn your video off due to poor quality or bad editing. American Sports Memories knows what recruiters are looking for! We specialize in video coverage and editing to produce college recruiting videos that support your scholarship efforts. We use high definition equipment with precise shooting angles, and our advanced editing illustrates your position on the screen so coaches know where to look. Our production processes include slow-motion and stop-action techniques to showcase your skills and capabilities. We’ll also include a brief summary of athletic and academic achievements to help introduce your athlete’s background  See what clients say about recruiting videos from American Sports Memories

Why Two Cameras?

Our Platinum package is our most popular package, for good reason! It includes two camera angles and allows us to edit standout plays of your athlete from multiple angles, showing their precision skills and team impact.

Many good recruiting videos follow the action from a wide angle so coaches can understand the context of the developing play, allowing them to see how your athlete moves even when they don’t have the ball. The limitation here is the difficulty coaches may have in visualizing finesse skills and plays by individual athletes.

The best recruiting videos also have a second isolation camera that zooms in tight on your athlete at all times so coaches can clearly evaluate individual nuances like footwork, ball control, and balance. This camera angle also enables slow motion replays of your best plays from a different perspective in the same way television broadcasts replay the best action from two different angles. Our goal is to create a video that stands out from the rest!

How To Book

Decide what type of footage you want us to work with! Do you want us to edit your existing footage, capture an upcoming game or tournament,  or a combination of both? You can learn more about these options in the links below.

Head over to Our Packages page and determine which package best fits your athlete’s needs. From there you can add the package to your cart, provide all necessary details and complete the checkout process.

After this is complete, PayPal will authorize your card for the purchase. Your card will not be charged until we confirm with you that a videographer has been booked. This is the quickest way to ensure you get coverage because we book our videographers once payment is received. Think of it like shopping at Amazon. When you place an order, Amazon authorizes your credit card for the amount to ensure you have funds to pay the bill. But Amazon waits to actually charge your card until your items ships. If the items do not ship, you are not charged.

Alternatively, you can have us check availability before you check out. However – because videographers are booked first come, first served – we can only check availability not guarantee it. We only book videographers when payment is authorized. For example, if another family completes check out while you are having us check availability, they will be offered available videographers first.

Once we receive your order, we will work with our expansive team of videographers to schedule coverage for your upcoming event. After we schedule a videographer, we will send you an email confirming that your event has been successfully booked, and will then accept funds from Paypal. You can expect this email within 36 hours after your order is received.

Alternatively, if you have requested coverage during a busy weekend and all of our videographers are booked, we will advise you via email that we were unable to schedule coverage for your event. At this time we will remove the funds’ hold and your credit card will not be charged.

Please try to plan ahead for upcoming games. We suggest submitting your order at least a week in advance to avoid this situation. An early booking gives you the best opportunity to secure one of our videographers for your event.

Now that your event has been booked, we’ll need some additional information about your athlete. Please head over to our biography page, complete the form, and submit a photograph of your athlete. This is when we capture important information you want to share with coaches such as GPA, graduation year, academic achievements, sports related awards, etc.

If you’ve determined you’d like us to edit your existing footage, please head over to our Footage Upload page and follow the steps to submit your files. Additionally, this is where you can complete your Play Selection Form to instruct us which plays should be included in your video.

Approximately 7-10 days after filming your game or receiving your existing footage and play selections, we will email you a link to preview the proof video. After watching the proof video, you may request edits. After this final edit and confirming with you that the video is perfect, we will:

  • Email you a link to your athlete’s online ASM profile (which you can share online and with coaches)
  • Email you a download link to the MP4 file of your video (which you can then upload to websites such as YouTube, NCSA, and other recruiting sites)
  • Mail out your 3 DVDs (which your athlete can present to coaches at campus visits and ID camps)

“The soccer recruiting video you did for my daughter is the reason she got a scholarship offer from Rutgers. In fact, everyone on our team who has ordered a video from you has gotten an athletic scholarship!”
