ISM Journey - Stage 1 Talent Identification Day - Orlando, FL
Time & Location
About the Event
The first stage of the I.S.M Journey is the Identification phase. This is the first stage of any player's pathway into a professional career in the Football/Soccer industry.
If you are a player that has been waiting for this opportunity to showcase your talents to the world, playing at either Academy, College, Semi-Pro or Professional level, we want to offer you all the chance to create a pathway into football with the help of the I.S.M staff.
Your journey begins with I.S.M Identification, so what are you waiting for?
How does it work:
Stage 1: Identification
Players who attend the Stage 1 event will participate in a series of 11 v 11 matches. The idea behind these matches is to allow the players to showcase their talents to the I.S.M Scouting team.
This event will have a maximum number of 100 participants. The I.S.M Scouting team will assess every participant's performance, and will then select the top 50 players from the event to move on to the second stage of the I.S.M Journey!
Stage 2: Development
Stage 2 is really where players get pushed outside of their comfort zone. Players will participate in a series of Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Psychological testings that will be led by Coaches and Trainers from Professional Clubs around the world.
Once the testing phase is complete, Players will then be placed into small groups for small-sided games. After the small-sided games have concluded, 11v11 matches will then take place where players will get the opportunity to perform in front of Scouts from clubs all over the world. These 11v11 matches will also be Live Streamed to our Scout and Coaches network that is viewed by 1000s of Scouts from Clubs across the globe.
At the end of the event, I.S.M Staff will collect the player evaluations that have been completed by the Scouts/Clubs in attendance at the event and will announce the final 18 players that will move on to Stage 3 of the I.S.M Journey, a 90-minute match against a Professional Team.
Stage 3: Placement
Stage 3 of the I.S.M Journey is the pinnacle opportunity for players, the chance to perform against a Professional Club.
Here the selected 18 players will be able to showcase their talents against a Professional club, whilst also being watched by other club scouts and coaches.
This phase is completely controlled by the player's performance on the pitch, with the main focus being that should the players perform well, then they will be offered the opportunity to Trial or Sign with the clubs in attendance.
Post-Trial - Email Contact - All players will be contacted thanking them for attending the event. All unsuccessful players will receive constructive feedback and possible discounts on future I.S.M Identification events. All successful players will receive an invite to the next stage of events and invited to a 1 on 1 consultation with I.S.M staff.
