IPSO INCORPORATED IN
ASIAN FOOTBALL CONFEDERATION PRO-LICENCE COURSES
There is far more to analysing a player than people believe. The AIFF have witnessed the impact the IPSO products have achieved on their coaches and they have now implemented parts of IPSO products into their AFC PRO, ‘‘A’’ & ‘‘B’’ licence courses. This will ensure the coaches have the attention to detail approach when looking at their players or teams. Savio Medeira Head of Coach Education at the AIFF had this to say “ Getting IPSO courses in INDIA was a great initiative. It did give a completely different perspective in scouting & analysis which was previously lacking. Breaking down scouting into detail did help our Indian coaches not only in scouting but helping them in their team selection. This was mainly important when they are stuck with a challenge of selecting a player between 2 players for a particular position in the team. During the pandemic we continued with online courses as we were not able to have onsite courses. One workshop which I would like to single out was the “Bias Workshop” . This workshop gives you a perfect understanding of having an open mind when you go for scouting. Having witnessed the impact of these courses, it did give me the confidence to move a step further and to include scouting and analysis sessions in our Diploma courses in our “B”, “A’, and “PRO’ ‘ licence courses. It will further enhance the knowledge of our coaches in these sessions during the courses. Knowing Colin and his passion and commitment towards his delivery, I am very confident that we are on the right path to educate our coaches to be better scouts and coaches. I thank IPSO and Colin in special way, for all the efforts being put in to develop Scouting in India.” That’s great coming from someone of Mr Medeira’s experience and background.
Colin Chambers the Education director of IPSO commented ‘’ It’s an honour to be the first education provider to be recognised for its products to be implemented into coaching badges and qualifications. We work hard to make sure everything is covered within our delivery and education program in scouting & analysis and this is paying off when top coaches like Savio can see the benefits for the coaches in the ‘’All India Football Federation’’ in the way our products actually help and improve coaches. A great achievement and we are looking forward to working very closely with the Indian FA with many projects.’’
We already have other federations looking into this procedure and looking to implement the IPSO way to further educate their coaches.
IPSO USED IN Asian Football Confederation “PRO-Licence” ‘‘A’’&‘‘B’’ COACHING COURSES
IPSO has made ground-breaking steps by becoming the first scouting & analysis provider to be used in football coaching qualifications.
In partnership with the AIFF (All Indian Football Federation), IPSO will deliver sessions on scouting & analysis within their PRO-Licence, A, and B coaching qualifications. It’s now noted that the recruitment side of football is drastically becoming more and more important in the world of football.
The AIFF has made huge steps to make sure all their coaches are trained the IPSO way with our attention to detail approach which is proven to help the coaches become better coaches!
How you may ask?
It’s quite simple, if you can analyse players quicker, sharper and more accurately then you can coach the player in the correct areas they need quicker, sharper, and more accurately.
Scouting & Analysis goes hand in hand with Coaching, make no mistake about that.
