Since studying your opponents is a specific mechanism for practice outside your Sim's job, it is tied to their position. You won't be able to Study Opponents until you have reached the Professional Athlete job. If you choose it over Bodybuilder, this is the first step when you branch off in the Athlete career. You'll need to go through the first four jobs first: Waterperson, Locker Room Attendant, Team Mascot, and Dance Team Captain.
