The “Talent Identification Program” has been founded in 1997 from the collaboration between ISM International Scouting Center and A.C. Perugia Calcio SPA (formerly playing in Serie A), with the purpose of identifying young talents.
From March 2020 ISM International Center has established an official cooperation with AC Perugia, becoming official responsible for the International Scouting U17 – U19, offering the players the opportunity to be signed with AC Perugia.
Since 2022 ISM extended the technical cooperation to other Professional Football Clubs becoming the Scouting Center and Home for development of promising football players.
1st YearThe 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 Coaches and subject to a specific technical program.
2nd YearThe players who will take part to the first year will have the opportunity to a Professional Club Partner according to his age and performance showed on the 1st year. The Club Partner will enrol the player with an official membership and, if it’s the case, with a professional contract.
… and the futureWe hope your dreams become true
The Talent Identification Program is identical, in intensity and contents, to the one used by a Professional Fooball Club. Players participating in the TIP develop their technical and tactical skills through a daily work program identical to that set for professional players.
ISM International Scouting Center will provide the athletes with personalized reports where the technical and tactical parameters will be evaluated in order to measure effective improvements two times per season. 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 train directly with Italian Professional Clubs or through the participation in 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.
