Football Scouting and Analysis Webinars and Workshops
All the experts and knowledge in one place exclusive to the PFSA and exclusively endorsed by Instat; the worlds leading provider of video analysis to elite clubs in the UK and overseas.
We are pleased to announce the arrival of the PFSA webinars, exclusively endorsed by Instat. Webinars are a great tool to not only discuss the latest trends within any specific topic, they also help you connect and network with many other professionals within the industry. The PFSA webinars will also give you an insight into our portfolio of online courses. We believe it is vital on our Level 2 and above, to have industry experts help deliver the course, those that are currently with clubs, shedding light on current best practice, coupled with our expert tutors.
Topics will focus around the PFSA’s core education; talent identification and opposition scouting. Each expert will bring their own topics and discussions whilst our tutors will also delve into discussions around each subject.
