Application Process, Costs and Initial Screening

Application for entry into TDC occurs via two processes; an application form followed by attendance at a subsequent screening session.

These two processes provide information on current physical activity levels, sporting commitments and performance (application form) and allow for analysis on individual movement competency, physical ability and growth and maturation information (screening session).
