Scouting Specialist from MBP School of Coaches
Only until November 30th!
Congratulations, you just have signed up as a junior scout with MBP. We are eight matches away from the finals and we need your help to achieve our goal. We know that it’s not going to be easy and that we need to work hard to make it, but with everyone’s effort we will succeed!
During these eight matches you will learn the functioning and use of professional Scouting. To do it, you’ll have to go through the different phases that form this learning process: studying the theory in the locker room, putting it into practice during the training session, carrying out what you have learned during the match and, in the end, sharing it in the press conference.
Matches 1 and 2. MBP scouting model
We’ll know Scouting and its functions, we’ll see MBP’s approach in particular and we’ll identify the different types of analysis.
Match 3. Team structure and dynamics analysis
We will explore concepts such as official call and the game system, we’ll study the players according to their position and we’ll take a first step into the dynamic analysis of the team.
Match 4. Offensive phase analysis
In this module we’ll analyze the attack phase in its three sub-phases: start, building up and finishing.
Match 5. Defensive phase analysis
Here we’ll know in depth the defensive phase: analyzing the three types of defensive block and the defense of direct game.
Match 6. Transitional phases analysis
We’ll delve into both transitions from attack to defense and from defense to attack.
Match 7. Strategy analysis
We’ll analyze the strategy of different set pieces: corner kicks, free kicks, throw-ins and penalty kicks.
Match 8. Methodological patterns
We’ll close the course learning how to attack, defend, organize transitions and play the strategy based on methodological patterns. Those patterns will be a direct consequence of the synthesis of the information obtained in the rest of the modules.
Cross Curricular project
To complete the course, you’ll have to do, individually, the analysis of two matches played by professional teams. You will have to analyze the structure and the dynamics, the different game phases and, finally, the strategy. To do it, you’ll use a video analysis program, one of the most important tools for professional scouts.
