Understanding how scouting works, and actually scouting are what few people know and do. CSS offers a complete course including access to the CSS Player Database for all those students seeking certification.
Scouting is the basis for everything that is involved with hockey operations. Without scouts, the General Managers and Coaches can not do their jobs properly.
Without scouts, players can get over looked and bad scouts lead to players not receiving the right opportunity.
Scouting is a blend of science, math, and observation. Scouting Certification will include aspects of CSS Performance Testing, as well as practical work experience in a live team environment.
Scouting Certification classes are provided on weekends throughout Europe when the CSS Academy team is playing. Students must attend 18 games over the course of a season and participate in homework assignments in order to receive Certification.
