Our Football Video Performance Analysis With Catapult Technology will train you in the skill teams are looking for and align your resume with team needs. At the end of this course, you will have a highly marketable skill, which very few others have.

“Learning the technology that teams use in scouting and analysis, like Catapult Thunder, prepares people to immediately go to professional and college teams with the skill set they need,” says course mentor Mike Stoeber.  “When you know how to use the technology to create the results teams want, immediately you are head and shoulders above the competition.”

  • Recruiting with digital video editing tools
  • Scouting with digital video editing tools
  • Methods to evaluate players with Catapult technology
