Master in Scouting and VideoAnalysis


Program Description


With the "Master in Scouting and VideoAnalysis (Universidad Isabel I)" we will learn to analyze both at the collective level in the 4 moments of the game and in the ABP (actions on set pieces) of the rival team, as well as our own team. On the other hand analyze individual, sectoral, intersectoral and full structure situations that our team adopts as the rival. Also learn to perform individual analyzes for recruitment.

Then there is the issue of VideoAnalysis, that once the section of cuts of the videos is done, we can join or extract what we need and see the part that we want to do a deeper investigation.

This material is essential for first level teams that require this system to evaluate their rivals and see what type of game or system they use.

The game mode that opponents have, especially the great teams that compete internationally, must be studied to deal with them.
