Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of FCScout.com.

I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.

Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and fcscout.com was born.

This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.

That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).

This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

Koninklijke Voetbalclub Oostende, also called KV Oostende or KVO, is a Belgian football club from the city of Ostend, West Flanders in Belgium. The club competes in the Belgian Pro League, the top flight of Belgian football.

Oostende Youth Development System

K.V. Oostende has a large academy strcuture with multiple youth teams. These include:


Those who want to take their first steps on a football field have come to the right place at the KVO STARt ACADEMY . We have our own logo and as the name reveals, we hope to deliver as many players (stars) as possible for the competitive teams of KVO SE’ACADEMY. Through the collaboration with Vamos Zandvoorde we will succeed in getting more players to play football in Ostend at their own level. Moreover, we have raised the age again to U12. So one can attend the entire primary school at the STARt ACADEMY.

In the STARt ACADEMY we intend to apply the basics of football, namely technique and especially fun to play. We take the little ones a step further and try to promote their general (sports) development.

Our concept, in which we work in two shifts, allows us to work in even smaller groups. As a result, we can guide the boys and girls of the STARt ACADEMY even better. In addition, matches are regularly organized on Sundays among each other and against teams from the neighborhood.

Not all players (or parents) have the ambition to play matches on a regular basis. The STARt ACADEMY offers the ideal alternative here with an hour of relaxing football on Wednesdays.

After a successful start two seasons ago, KVO Se’Academy is once again organizing extra goalkeeper training sessions on Wednesday in the KEEPERACADEMY. Players of the provincial teams of KVO will again have regular training from the club. 

They must register and pay for the KEEPERACADEMY. Field players or goalkeepers from other teams are welcome to attend these training sessions. An ideal addition to become an even better goalkeeper or to learn the tricks of a goalkeeper! We rely on certified trainers for this. 

For more sporting information, please contact the TVJO of KVO, Nils Vanneste via [email protected] .

Oostende Technical Academy

This season, KVO Se’Academy will be organizing extra indoor training sessions for the second time after a successful first season. All training is based on technique. 

One hour is worked on the basic technique of the players and this at different levels according to what the participants can handle. The training sessions will take place in Ostend on Friday evening. These trainings are open to players from both KVO and other teams!

For more sports information you can contact the responsible TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY, Frédéricq Taelman through [email protected].
