FFV’s 2018 Talent Identification and Development Centre (TIDC) Program.
FFV will continue to run a part time TIDC Program in 2018, working in conjunction with clubs to identify and develop our talented players for Australian Representative Squads.
The program will run in a similar fashion to 2017 with players required to train one night a week with the TIDC Squad in their area. All TIDC players are required to train at least twice a week and play matches with their current club.
Player selection will be based on nominations from clubs while also taking into consideration scouted players and players that participated in the 2017 TIDC program.
Club Technical Directors wishing to nominate players for the program please email email@example.com requesting a player assessment/criteria form (this includes NPL/community clubs).
TIDC sessions will run during the season as part of the development and selection process for Victorian representative squads (where the number of sessions prior to tournaments will increase if selected).
Squads of 20+ players will work in blocks. Technical staff will monitor players and review positions in the program at the end of each training block. Players not required for the new blocks will be monitored by technical staff in their club environment.
In 2018 FFV will oversee the following age groups:
U12 (2006 Born)
U13 (2005 Born)
U14 (2004 Born)
U15 (2003 Born)
U16 (2002 Born)
Clubs wishing to nominate players for the Metro TIDC program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assessment criteria and link to nomination form for U13-U16 by Tuesday 23rd January.
