Education and Training Requirements

High School

A general high school education will give the basic skills needed to succeed in sports scouting. Speech and English courses will help ease communication with prospects as well as with conveying findings to coaches, managers, and front office workers. Learn Spanish or Japanese to help connect with foreign players, who are increasingly sought after by Major League Baseball teams. Finally, take physical education classes and join sports teams—especially the sport for which you want to scout.
