DEVELOPMENT HUB FOR GIRLS
Offering talented players within the North East a key stepping stone on the pathway on becoming the Future England Player.
The DHfG will place girls into a comprehensive, appropriate age related phase, technical and tactical training programme linked to the England DNA; whilst also looking to support their holistic development (Psychological and Social).
The sessions will run through term time and will follow a bespoke scheme of work that involves cycles to ensure development. The curriculum has been designed by highly experienced coaches who coach at national level teams and/or within the Regional Talent Club pathway. The sessions will be delivered, in an engaging, challenging and safe environment; where the girls are encouraged to play with freedom and creativity, solving on-going problems and making informed decisions; without the fear of failure.
It is intended to offer an ideal complement to grassroots football for motivated, passionate and determined players looking to develop and improve. With the aim of bridging the gap between grassroots football and England's Regional Talent Club Pathway.
THE DHG APPROACH
Through a range of highly experienced collaborations who are involved in the highest level of the game in their specialist field, we can offer a holistic model that will allow girls to develop in every part of their game. This will consist of player/parent education workshops and weekly performance enhancement with Paul Parker (PRPerformance).
TAKE ON NEW CHALLENGES
All our sessions allow the players to be experimental and try new things, this is also encouraged by all our coaches, and a philosophy we aim to run through all our delivery programmes.
We believe all players who have exceptional work ethic, the determination to develop and who are passionate about football should be given the opportunity to excel in a professional and positive environment.
Develop Her Game achieves this by setting high expectations from all of our coaches and players with the end goal of producing players with a high level of technical ability alongside the holistic development, ultimately preparing to progress through the FA's Elite Player Pathway.
PERSONAL TARGET SETTING
Individual Development Plan 21 (IDP21)
Our Development Hub for Girls follows a plan of delivery to ensure specific targets are covered to allow for all players to develop in each element of the game. Within the sessions, players have the opportunity to set their own goals and targets, meaning they are able to push themselves as much as they feel capable and confident enough too. They will do this by utilising our bespoke Individual Development Plan (IDP) tool, which will be completed at three points throughout the programme. This allows girls to measure their progress against their development goals.
