Talent Identification

Clubs should provide an opportunity for players to play at any skill level even if it means leaving the Club.

The Football Australia player pathways for girls and boys has been put together to support the development of all potentially talented players throughout their football journey.  The pathways for young players to reach their potential can vary immensely and as such there is not just one way to achieving national team selection. 

Many factors can influence a player’s journey including social, emotional, psychological, physiological and technical/tactical.  The Australian football player pathways displays the various support programs that are in place for girls to access in helping them reach their potential.
