The SciSkill Potential estimates a football player's peak ability, which most players reach in their late twenties. Players in more defensive positions like goalkeepers and defenders typically reach their peak abilities at a later age than players in more offensive positions like midfielders and attackers.

We define a football player's peak ability as the maximum SciSkill a player is expected to reach throughout his career based on the SciSkill development to date. The SciSkill Potential is computed by projecting a player's SciSkill development to date into the future based on the SciSkill developments of older players who had a similar SciSkill development as the player.
