Talent Identification and Development Centre



TIDC Program is a part time program, working in conjunction with clubs to identify and develop potential talented players for future squads.

1. SAP Centre (U9-U12) - See Link here

2. TIDC Girls Talent ID Camps (U13- 2009 Born)

3. Regional Players invited into Metropolitan Talent Identification and Development Centre (TIDC) Program (Girls U13) or Regional Development Player Program with the NTC Squads

The Talent ID Camps are training sessions and matches held during the April and July School Holidays to identify and develop our talented players for potential future Victorian and Australian Representative Squads. 

Identified girls are selected to train at a training camp and will play matches against other regions or Girls NTC Squads. At the TIDC gala day to be held at a centralised location, including a cost recovery fee. 

Players who are not selected after the first camp can still be identified in the club environment and invited to into the subsequent Talent ID Camps. 

Following on from the July Talent ID Camp, identified players train one night a week with the TIDC Squad in the Metro area. All TIDC players are required to train and play matches with their current club.

Initial player selection will be based on nominations from clubs, tournaments or expression of interests while also taking into consideration scouted players and players that participated in previous FV Programs. Trials will then be conducted prior to the camps.

Throughout the duration of the program players can be scouted and invited to trial in the program. TIDC sessions will run during the season as part of the players development. Squads of 18+ players will work in blocks after the July school holiday camp. 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.


The TIDC Girls squads took part in the recent Football Victoria SAP Gala Day on 29th June. See how the day unfolded here.
