Eric’s Answer

If you are looking to become a sport scout you do not need to necessarily be a former athlete as indicated by other answers. If you are looking to become one for the professional sports levels I suggest you look to work with college programs in some capacity, look to study subjects like a analytics, economics and sports law. Then look to get an internship with a professional sports team to gain more insight on how to get your foot in the door and work with the operations department that handles talent evaluation. I also provide course on these subjects. If you would like information on these courses please feel free to comment.

Karen’s Answer

Sports Scouts are primarily previous athletes that have a concentration on a specific sport and extensive knowledge of the rules of hiring athletes. A degree in Sports Management is a good start for this type of profession, the other concentration you is very helpful is Psychology. This is important as you need to be able to help the athlete be ready for professional athletics mentally as well as physically.

Sheri’s Answer

Most sports scouts get their job because they were a former athlete, have a degree in Journalism or Sports Management and gain other experience by being a coach to other teams.
