OUR APPROAC!

1. Reduced barriers )roviding our most talented players with more accessible opportunities to participate in talent development programmes, regardless of geographical location and financial circumstances( 2. Selection based on Potential )roviding all talented players with opportunities to develop regardless of their current biological age, with a long term view of producing world class players and therefore selecting players based on potential and not current maturation( Extensive research has shown that talent is often missed due to what is known as The Relative Age Effect RAE!. This is where "la#ers born earlier in a football calendar #ear usuall# the first four to six months $anuar# to $une! are more likel# than "la#ers born later in the #ear to be receiving o""ortunities to access talent develo"ment "rogrammes. %ndividuals born earliest within certain age grou"s tend to have si&e' s"eed' coordination' mental and emotional advantages over those born 2

Technicall# more efficient and effective New Zealands top players are often described as physically effective footballers displaying strong athletic qualities and are well coordination in the defensive moments of the game, but rarely praised for technical excellence /FIFA technical reports 2006 20!0". #ecent observations at numerous $orld %ups have highlighted the technical proficiency of players from the leading football nations and therefore &ew 'ealand cannot produce world class players until it is world class in developing technical skills, the 0T1s aim to heavil# su""ort the technical develo"ment of our "la#ers. 2. 1reating 3aster Pla#ers for a 3aster 4ame Through the constant transformation of the game, one clear area that has significantly evolved is 3peed, not only running speed, but also and, in particular, the speed of execution of basic actions such as ta-ing possession of the ball, passing or shooting( The NT% programme will pay particular attention to both the physical and technical'tactical and psychological corner of development in order to develop our players game related speed( 5.

Sele%tion The selection process for the !"4'!"@ boys and the !"0'"4 girls for 0."", and longer term for all age groups, will be based on national identification procedures operated by ederations on a regional level, for example, the use of Talent on Aocation days /T=As2( ederations will also use their existing programmes as the vehicle to assess players against NT% selection criteria and to formally identify those players that meet the required standards for entry into the NT%( The process for identification and selection to NT%s will occur annually with the federations completing a summative assessment on the players annual progress, which will ultimately form the basis for selection 6

and the decisions to recruit, retain or release players to and from the NT%( )layers recruited to the NT% will be aligned to development groups on a double age band to start with based on World %up age group cycles( $n this respect players may be grouped with players older or younger chronologically and the groupings will cover two year groups i(e( !"5'!">s group " and !"@'!"4s group 0

Creating a New Era for Youth Coaching


With the inception of the new NT% programme comes an opportunity to bring together New Zealands most talented youth developers, a coaching team capable of providing our future international players with high quality support that can accelerate their development( ;ith this in mind' it is im"erative that 0<3 ado"t an a""roach to recruit onl# s"ecialised #outh develo"ers who have accumulated the re(uisite knowledge' skills and ex"erience to guide talented "la#ers to greater achievements. These coaches will be recognised throughout New Zealand as an elite group and will worcollectively to provide a standardised high quality programme of development across all three centres nationwide( The research from over # years of $ A rand !* A reports and statistics for 0..0 7 0.". and by ta-ing a loo- at todays game around the world, we can see the game is developing and progressing in terms of tactics and the technical proficiency of players( $t is becoming faster, more goals are being scored, and exceptionally talented players are able to assert themselves more and more( Bowever, there are still those experts who maintain that a players array of technical s-ills, his tactical awareness of the game and his mental approach can be improved upon even more( 3uch statements merely reinforce our view that the preparation of players, but more especially the preC training /"0C"> years2 of young footballers, which has stalled in recent years through the collapse of the NZ $nternational )layer 8evelopment )rogramme /$)8)2 leaving a vacuum of patch wor- activity of varying quality and standards nationwide, must remain even more of a priority in our development approach( This is further compounded when considering that our game in this area is positioned far behind the best practice examples in other football nations where youth players are exposed to evidence based, high quality, football learning and development programmes, that are staffed by suitably qualified and highly effective youth coaches( $n other words, the game here has to ensure that it maintains for the future the opportunity for players to reach their football potential by exposing them to systems and structures, coaches and opportunities that will enable this to happen( <earing this in mind there is no getting away from the fact that coaches are at the heart of these o""ortunities and we must "ursue a "olic# of matching the most talented "la#ers to the most talented coaches so that our players undergo a rigorous football education, but with expanded horiDons as well( This education which is lead by experienced youth coaches must be a school of life in the broadest sense, not only as a vehicle for moulding future All Whites and erns, but also as a medium for helping youngsters to allow their personality, i(e( their general intelligence, culture and social interaction s-ills, to blossom to the full( =ur NT% Eouth %oaches will be entrusted with the noble and educative tas- of teaching youngsters to shape themselves and of bringing out FhiddenG talents by 8

allowing these youngsters to express themselves freely with their own individual qualities( $n light of the above, it is essential for our NT% coaches to place even greater emphasis on individual development by respecting the rate of growth, the tempo of learning and the level of natural potential that has already been acquired( With training, it is reall# im"ortant to start b# working on techni(ue' which forms not onl# an essential foundation for an# further "rogression in #oung footballers' but also acts as a motivating factor( We have to increase their range of movements, their confidence on the ball, as well as enriching their technique when they are moving, running at speed or under pressure from an opponent( =nly after that come physical preparation and collective tactics 7 and not the contrary, as is all too frequently the case in current and previous training programmes( =nly players with great technical qualities are able to produce attractive football( And these qualities are acquired from the very earliest stages of youth training and development( &T!E 'OUT!S T!AT !AVE TEC!NICAL DE(ECTS "t t)e "*e o+ ,-. t)e/ 0"/ (IND A ROAD BUT 1ILL (IND IT DI((ICULT TO ARRIVE23 4r"r# !o$lleir ((( Te%)ni%"l Dire%tor After the childhood phase, the Fgolden ageG for psychomotor development /1C "0 years2, comes the preCtraining stage /"0C"> years of age2: this is when wor- has to be done on footballing s-ills, particularly technique and the technical and tactical basics of the game( $ndeed the 0T1 coaches must have a firm gras" of the needs of "la#ers travelling through this stage as well as the practical -nowledge of how to manage this Hourney effectively( <earing all of this in mind it is essential that ederations and NZ wortogether and are clear in their approach to recruit coaches who have the qualities to be world class youth coaches and are committed to create a new *ra for Eouth %oaching in New Zealand(

The following serves as a reminder to those involved in the selection of coaches to the NT% with an insight into the role of the youth coach and some of the -ey competencies required in those we choose to lead this new era for youth coaching The function of training and instructing for the Eouth %oach is not that different from the same function for a topClevel coach 7 less than one might imagine, in fact( What we can say, however, is that the role of a youth coach requires considerable mobility of action and great availability( Although his'her principal function is to prepare young footballers to become the professional footballers of the future, he'she must not "lace too much em"hasis on the com"etitive as"ect to the detriment of training and develo"ing the "la#ers. "erformance=related skills. The playerCcoach relationship must be at the core of the activity of the youth coach, thereby ensuring that he'she can assume his'her role as the mentor or even father'mother figure that youngsters are often loo-ing for at this formative age( They need reference points and affective security: they need to be understood and appreciated: they need to be encouraged and stimulated to excel themselves( The Eouth %oach cannot even begin to educate unless he'she himself possesses human qualities that are recognised and accepted by the youngsters and an understanding of the development needs of these players( The Eouth %oach must maintain a relationship of confidentiality and trust with the players family and school environment: without such a relationship, nothing worthwhile can be achieved( $t goes without saying that good coaching s-ills /specifically in the area of technical development2 are essential to train and supervise youngsters and especially to help their personalitys blossom to the full( This notwithstanding, the Eouth %oach will spend the bul- of his time on the pitch( The art of the dedicated' d#namic and "roficient coach consists in being able to select training targets that are suited to the "la#ers' to "lan worthwhile learning activities' to run their games and drills with "assion' to encourage the "la#ers to correct their mistakes b# themselves' to "raise their success' as well as being able to "romote creativit# and discover# b# giving "recise ex"lanations and demonstrations and asking the right (uestions at the right time. >ow do we want our #oung "la#ers to view the 0T1 ?outh 1oach@ An exemplary Eouth %oach is one who supports, guides and advises+ I Be'she is fair and loyal and is able to demonstrate that he has a sympathetic attitude: I Be'she -nows how to listen, and he understands youngsters: I Be'she encourages, he motivates, and he -nows how to get the best out of people: I Be'she addresses every player and the team with the necessary authority( 10

1. ;hat we are aiming for in the relationshi" between the ?outh 1oach and #oung "la#ers undergoing training and develo"ment Never lose sight of the fact that these promising youth players have still not completed their personal and emotional development: they are not adults( Belp them to develop and refine their technical s-ills and their tactical awareness( <e able to imagine yourself in their shoes so that you can understand their problems and their emotions: be able as well to ma-e them feel better about themselves( %ontribute to their development without any preHudices( Ja-e them aware of their responsibilities( To achieve all of this, coaches clearly need to have pedagogical s-ills(
