ETP Coach

The England Talent Pathway approach is centred on helping coaches to develop all talent within the age groups of U12-U14s.

The aim is to grow a greater pool of talent to improve standards and develop potential England players.

It helps coaches answer the question - to make my players better, what should I be doing?

This will lead to:

  • Improved quality of the player
  • Leaves the player in their own environment longer – increased inclusivity
  • More players getting more opportunities to demonstrate their potential
  • Regular, focused, player profiling

In order to design this age specific curriculum many leading coaches and youth specialists were consulted.

This is also under-pinned by cutting edge research as what attributes need to be developed by young players as they move along the talent pathway.
