How to process soccer training data

The management of the weekly training load represents a key point in football in order to optimize match performance and reduce the risk of injury. However, the amount of data is increasing more and more during the last few years, for this reason, the implementation of automated processes is crucial to optimize training load analysis. During this lecture, we will talk about how sports science and data science come together in order to support training monitoring. We will start from data cleaning (Python scripts) and we will move up to the creation and presentation of the final report (Tableau dashboards).
