    Great and very complete.

    An excelent course that shows the main tasks and responsabilities of a Scouting. It helps me to have great ideas. Creating a Scouting Department, analysing a player and creating a complete Report of the player is for me more easy today. Thanks to João Luis Afonso for sharing his deep knowleadge and experience.

    Great course

    The course is showing you the main tasks and responsibilities of a scouting department in the club. It gives you an idea but also show an example model of scouting department tasks and objectives. It shows you how you can organize data how to analize it. I think this gives you the opportunity to create your own philosophy of scouting in your club. The teacher also explain a lot of different aspects in detail which gives you great understanding of scouting process.
