I’m doing this special post because I’m getting alot of emails about how to share plays. In this post, I’m going to cover a few things related to our basketball coach’s clipboard which allows you to draw plays and drills for FREE. Yes, it’s free and you can even animate the plays like the ones on this blog!
- How can I create videos on my PC?
Sorry, you can only create videos and GIF’s using a Mac.
2. How do I share an entire playbook?
We use to have that feature but we’ve since removed it. For now, you’ll need to share videos 1 by 1.
In this post, we’ll cover
- How to draw black and white play diagrams for printing
- How to create a VIDEO of your animated plays and then send it to your team
- How to create animted GIF’s like the ones on this blog

How to create animated GIF’s for free
GIF’s are great because you don’t need to click on them to play it. It’ll auto play like the ones you see on this blog. It also looks great on twitter.
- On your Mac, go to “App store”
- Search for Gif brewery or click this link.
- Open the videos of the plays you created using gif brewery. Export as gif!
Instead of paying upwards of $99 for other products that can’t even animate, you can download our iPad app and create plays for free. I guarantee your players prefer the animated version. Give it a go if you haven’t already tried it!
