Talent Identification and Development Centre


FV’s 2019 Talent Identification and Development Centre (TIDC) Program.

TIDC Program is a part time program, working in conjunction with clubs to identify and develop our talented players for Australian Representative Squads.

Players 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.

Initial 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.

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 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 2019 FV will oversee the following Talent Identification & Development Centres:
