Football performance analysis or match tagging, is now considered as a “very important procedure” when it comes to improving match results and player performances.

On this course you will learn how to tag and code players with live in game analysis.

Coding a game, or tagging a match, involves the process of building a timeline of events that happen within the match. The events recorded are usually determined by the analyst or coach, based on what information they want to focus on from analyzing the opposition or used for training sessions within the football club. On this course you will be shown the skills of how to do this.

This is a very in-depth course and we will teach you that matches can be tagged during the game using apps for smart phones and tablets, and can be tagged post game using many different software.

The match tagging is to create a timeline of all the events you deem relevant or important in a match, and to present this data in reports which help to determine areas of development, areas of strength, home and away team strategies and much more which will be shown on the course.

Apart from learning to use the tagging and coding equipment.

You will be shown 

  • What areas am I looking for in within the tagging and coding
  • Showing how to use analysis to educate players
  • How to show feedback to my team and players
  • Use data and video to identify and understand performance issues
  • Report insights to coaches and players
  • Collect feedback and advise on how to effectively improve performance
  • How to effectively function as part of a complex sporting organisation
  • Use data and video to analyse upcoming opposition
  • Contribute to their team’s performance on match day
  • Best places to position your camera
  • To show where the team and individual players can improve
  • Look at team performance, or analyse how individual players played
