TQ Development Centres has been running since the beginning and has been a great foundation and introduction for beginner footballers and also more advanced players.
We have a structure in place which enables players to progress onto more challenging sessions, continuously developing and learning. There are very specific objectives for each age group and criteria players must meet before progressing to the older age groups.
Coaching Director Garreth Rafferty has designed a unique curriculum to aid the long term development and enjoyment for each player. The curriculum is based on Garreth’s Academy experience and replicates a typical academy structure.
Ages 5+6: Ball mastery and individual unopposed skill based drills progressed into opposed practices.
Ages 7+8: Small sided games, development matches and game related practices with some emphasis on passing as a skill.
Ages 9-11: Phase 1: Ball Mastery & Physical Development (Agility, Co-ordination, Power & Speed).
Phase 2: Technical practices are unopposed where the emphasis is placed on the repetition of the skill.
Phase 3a: Possession (Key Focus: Keeping the ball under pressure. Practices will be directional or Non-directional depending on player’s needs).
Phase 3b: Game related practices (Over loaded game related situations such as 2 vs 1’s, focus on players making decisions).
Phase 4: Game play (Enjoyment, freedom to express, opportunity to judge player’s development).
