Digital Video Coaching Software Heads-Up

I ran across a post on Rolling Thunder's Option Board tonight about a coach needing help with some free digital editing software he had received. Never one to look a gift-horse in the mouth, I proceeded over to Proscout Video to check things out for myself. Much to my suprise, they seem to indeed be giving away copies of their software (which looks very capable from the product info and screen shots). It looks like they received a grant from to provide somewhere around 2000 high school football teams with their product.

USA Football Providing Free State of the Art Technology to High School Coaches

VIENNA, VA- USA Football announced today that it is partnering with Proscout Video to offer high school football coaches free video editing software. Through a grant from the NFL Youth Football Fund, USA Football will provide 2,000 high school programs a complete Proscout Video software package.

The software, similar to what college and professional coaches have been using for years, will help coaches index game film. Coaching and instructional tools, such as tendency reporting, statistics, and a video telestrator with text overlay, interact with the game film. The result is an expedited and more effective use of game tape at the click of a button.

"The benefits of good coaching last a lifetime," said USA Football Chairman JACK KEMP. "This donation by the NFL will provide an on-going benefit to high school coaching staffs around the country, and more than 150,000 players."

Every high school football team across the country is eligible to participate in this program. The first 2,000 to respond will receive the Proscout Video easy-to-use software package. To learn more, contact Proscout Video at or call 877-766-7268.
