Talent Support Program trials

Football West News

New opportunities have arisen within the Football West Talent Support Program (TSP), with U13-16 aged players encouraged to trial for a training position within the program.

Initiated in 2016 by Football West and Football Federation Australia, the program provides additional training to talented players aged 13 to 16 to assist their development and will be the base of selection for U13 and U14 State Boys teams for the National Youth Championships in 2018.

As part of the program, players are selected yearly in an open-trial process. Those selected attend one additional training session a week in a highly competitive environment to assist with their development.
