The Level 2 is all about match reporting/match analysis. It is one of the most detailed and engaging course within the IPSO courses. It’s designed to teach scouts analysts or anyone interested in analysis how to create a detailed match/team report. We will teach you how to analyse 11 players at the same time (at speed), we will also teach you how to analyse a team in how they attack and defend in units separately and collectively as a team. We will teach you how to look at set-plays in a decisive way to implement them into a match report. We will teach you how, where and when to look at a game when analysing the strengths and weaknesses of a team. In total, how to asses a team with a professional infrastructure and look to make the report look professional when presented to the chief scout or head of analysis at a professional club. This skill can’t be learned in 2 hours or overnight it is a BIG SKILL, join us and learn to do the job professionally at the highest level. We will teach you to create reports that will make a difference.

You will have an exam at the end of the course where you create a report on a team and you have a certain criteria to meet to pass the course and gain your qualification. If you fail to pass the course it is not a problem you just take it again until you meet the criteria to pass (as many times as you want for free). You have to earn this certificate you do not get it handed to you for participation. It is challenging and is not a simple course but very rewarding as your certificate will prove you can deliver a very good detailed report on any team. The worldwide endorsement by the YMCA awards is a qualification that means something.
