Football Victoria 2020 Talent Identification and Development Centre (TIDC) Program

The Talent Identification and Development Centre (TIDC) Program is a part time program, working with clubs to identify and develop our talented players for Victorian and Australian Representative Squads.

TIDC players train one night a week with their allocated TIDC squad and participate in TIDC matches through the year. All TIDC players are required to train at least twice a week and play matches with their current club.

The program is divided into training blocks with technical staff monitoring players and reviewing positions in the program at the end of each block. Players not required for the new blocks will be monitored by technical staff in their club environment.

Players can be invited to trial for the program through:

1) Participated in the final block of TIDC in the previous year

2) Nominated by their club (Clubs are limited in their no. of nominations)

3) Identified through FV Scouting Network

Players can be invited to trial prior to the first block of the program and throughout the duration of 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).
