The IAFA Player Model is an outline of attributes for what we regard as the key elements in a player. IAFA players are evaluated against the Player Model.
Players who aspire to play in higher level teams should seek to fit ALL areas of the IAFA Player Model – technical, tactical, psychological/social, and physical.
Different areas are regarded higher than others with technical aspects, and tactical awareness being placed higher than psychological/social attributes, which are in turn regarded higher than the physical attributes needed to play the game.
