This really helped my game, and my confidence. Sometimes I think my 'real' coach doesn't understand me. My WeVu coach gave me three important things to work on and it really paid off.
Team coaches are thinking about the team. Sure they can help individual players, but they can't give every player all the advice they need. It wouldn't be fair. With WeVu you get a coach dedicated to you. Someone in your corner. Someone who will be honest with you about how to get the most from your talent.
The tape don't lie.
Your 'real' coach can't see everything. Maybe you feel your coach doesn't understand your game. With WeVu you can get a second opinion.
Plus great advice on on how to make a bigger impact that every coach will recognize.
It's simple. Players or parents upload practice and game video so coaches can easily go through the video and give pointed, personal, time-stamped feedback. Players already take lots of video and upload it to YouTube and Instagram! Why not get more out of it.
