The “Talent Identification Program” has been founded in 1997 from the collaboration between A.C. Perugia Calcio SPA (formerly playing in Serie A) and ISM, with the purpose of identifying young talents.
There are two types of “Talent Identification Program”, differing in commitment and duration:
The “Year-Round Talent Identification Program” that has a duration of 9 months (September to June) that coincide with the school or academic year’s beginning and end.
The “Monthly Program” that has a duration of either 1, 2, 3 or 6 months and can be attended during any period of the football season.
The player enrols in the “Talent Identification Program” (TIP) at a “ISM International Scouting Center”. At the beginning of the Program all players will have a technical and tactical evaluation by professional Clubs’ scouts and coaches (Juventus, Cagliari Calcio, AC Perugia, etc.) and subject to a specific technical program.
The players who will be selected during the first year will have the opportunity to undertake a test with a Professional Football Club. If, at the end of the test, the player meets the technical and tactical capabilities requested by the Club, the latter will enrol the player with an official membership and, if it’s the case, with a professional contract.
… and the future
We hope your dream become true
The Talent Identification Program is identical, in intensity and contents, to the one used by Italian Professional Clubs such as AC PERUGIA. Players participating in the TIP develop their technical and tactical skills through a daily work program identical to that set for professional players
Every 3 months the Academy will provide the athletes with personalized reports where the technical and tactical parameters will be evaluated in order to measure effective improvements. Technical and tactical lacking aspects will be identified since the very beginning in order to provide the athletes with a specific training.
Comparing with Professionals:
At least 4 times during the soccer season all of the athletes taking part to the TIP will try-out directly in the youth Academy Clubs we cooperate with ( AC Perugia, Parma, UC Sampdoria…) also with friendly matches having the purpose in showing off their own technical qualities but also to compare and understand the average professional requirements needed by Clubs.
