WELCOME TO TALENT IDENTIFICATION (TIP)
TIP - TALENT IDENTIFICATION PROGRAM.

Talent Identification Program is responsible for scouting players worldwide to find the best soccer talent the world has to offer. We are committed to expanding and improving our scouting network through accessible and holistic education, age appropriate identification, and club outreach finding youth players with the most talent and potential to build the bright future of Droom Soccer.

What is Talent?
Talent is systematically developed skills that enable you to do a task in the top 10%. While genetics and a natural aptitude to excel influence talent, it is NOT innate, and can be developed in the right environment.

What is Potential?
Potential is the qualities or abilities that may be developed to lead to future success or application. It is a measure of achievement beyond the current game performance level. Scouting youth players is to predict their future success.

Philosophy and Mission

Our Mission: To identify top talents for Pro Tryouts
Our Philosophy: We believe in connecting with all communities to achieve our mission. Scouts network with clubs and assist them in driving talent identification at the grassroots level, using a common observational structure between clubs and U.S. Soccer. We believe that talent can be developed, and that talent identification is a process with long-term objectives influenced by chronological, relative, and biological age, considering that players develop at different rates with a non-linear performance trajectory.
