Talent Identification and Development Centre 2020



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

Players train one night a week with the TIDC Squad in their 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 the 2019 TIDC program.

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. 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 2020 FV will oversee the following Talent Identification & Development Centres - Girls:

Melbourne (Metro)

Under 13's (2007 Born) | Girls

Trials: April - School Holidays (TBC)

Regional Centres

Football Victoria will offer a variety of Talented Player Programs aimed to provide opportunities for the identification and development of Victorian boys and girls including; 

1. Talent ID Camps (U9-U16)

2. Regional Players invited into Metropolitan Talent Identification and Development Centre (TIDC) Program (Girls U13, Boys U13-U16) 

3. Regional TIDC Program (U13-U14 Geelong, U13-U15 Sunraysia Only)


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 Victorian and Australian Representative Squads. 

Identified boys and girls are selected to train at a training camp in their local area and will play matches against other regions at the Regional TIDC gala day to be held at a centralised location. 

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

For relevant age groups, Talent ID Camps will run during the year as part of the identification, development and selection process for Victorian representative squads (where the number of sessions prior to tournaments will increase if selected).

Further Regional Trial Information can be found here.
