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.
From March 2020 ISM Academy 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.
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.
PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
The player enrols in the “Talent Identification Program” (TIP) at a A.C. Perugia International Scouting Project. 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.
The players that will take part to the “Talent Identification Program” (TIP) will have the opportunity to train and play with A.C. Perugia. If 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 it will be as rewarding as possible…
The Talent Identification technical training Program is identical, in intensity and contents, to the one used by Italian Professional Clubs. Athletes participating in the Talent Identification Program develop their technical and tactical skills through a daily work program identical to that set for professional players.
Every 3 months the A.C. Perugia International Scouting Project 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 train directly with AC Perugia 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 Club.
