Welcome, in this blog we will show you how to screen share and review a full match while on a Live Video call in FCT.  Read below to learn more! If you'd like to watch a quick video instead, click here. This post covers Mobile Match Tutorials, look out in the future for our post about Web Match Tutorials which goes over how to upload matches through the Full Court Tennis website.

To take a full length match on the FCT app, put your camera on a tripod or mounted on a fence. Then, press the camera button and shoot. To load a prerecorded match onto the FCT system, first navigate to your library from the Hamburger menu. In the above image, you can see that the Hamburger menu is circled in green.

Here you can see circled in green where to select to open your Library. 

Then, tap the Import Footage button on the bottom to import the match. This will allow you to transfer any prerecorded content stored on your Camera Roll or Dropbox.

In this example, we will show how to import a prerecorded match from Dropbox. So, select Dropbox from the menu.

Make sure you allow the app access to connect to Dropbox. Now find the file you'd like to upload. Keep in mind that processing time may vary depending on your WiFi speed.


Once the download is complete, you can open the video in the FCT Viewer. 


A great feature of FCT is the ability to zoom in and out of the action. Digitally scroll and annotate any action. You can record multiple analyses of up to five minutes at a time.


You can move forward or backward 1 minute by tapping the scroll bar. You can also move the clip 10 minutes forward or backwards by tapping where the arrow is shown. 


Here you can see the toolbar with our annotation features which allow you to analyze any point in the match, five minutes at a time. The annotation feature allows you to record a voiceover, add your face, and/or draw on the clip, and analyze video. 

To start a lesson, open Train Now from the Home Screen and search for a player. Once the coach finds the player, a lesson can be started.

To Start a Live Video Call Consult Lesson

Here is the Live Video Consult Lesson Space. You've found the player, press Start a Live Video Consult Lesson. A message appears "Do you want to start the lesson?". Then, press yes button to start. The lesson opens up immediately and the player gets a notification. 

Here is the Live Video Call Lesson Space. Press on the camera button on the bottom left corner of the screen to load video. 

Here are the options to load video after you've pressed the Camera button in the left corner of the lesson space.

After either the coach or player has loaded video onto the lesson you can decide when to begin the Live Video Consult. To find the lesson, the coach will go to the My Players tab and will search for their player that they have the lesson with. The player will search the Coach Lessons tab to find the lesson with their coach.

To look for the lesson, search for your player or coach in the top right corner of the screen in the search area. 

Here we have chosen a player and you can see the various lessons with the player.

Here we have opened up the Live Consult Lesson Space. When ready, press Start Live Consult. Your player will receive a notification that you are in the room waiting. 


The coach should be the one sharing the screen. Coach should tap the white circle to broadcast their screen and share their FCT Lesson Space. 

Once the circle turns red, the coach can start the broadcast of their screen. The coach should press the light grey area outside of the dark rectangle to begin the broadcast. 

After the coach has pressed the area outside the rectangle, they can see a horizontal grey line at the top of the screen. The coach swipes down on this line to to share their screen and play any video within the Lesson Space. The player does not have to do anything, the coach is the one controlling the screen.

After swiping down to screen share, open the video, and you can annotate the match on a Live Video Call as you go through it with your player.
