Focus’ intuitive workflow and user-friendly interface have made video analysis more accessible and effective than ever before. Kellie Stigas, Providence College Assistant Coach – Field Hockey, said:

“In regards to Hub and Focus, our staff liked how it was user friendly and easy to make a presentation on. It was easy enough when preparing a scout for the week ahead to add tags from multiple games, include screenshots, edit changes within the presentation, and then share with the entire team.”

With Catapult Pro Video, coaches can easily tag key moments in a match, whether it’s a crucial goal or a defensive play that needs improvement.
