About The Programme

East Coast Bays AFC  is apart of a select group of clubs that possess an NZF Accredited Talent Development Programme. 

Players within our Talent Development programme train three nights a week for 1.5-hour sessions. We pride ourselves on having one of the best coaching staff in the country who delivers our own player-centred curriculum. 

The aims of our TDP are to develop the whole person – develop exceptional men and women of future society and the player – develop players of the future game. 

We deliver an annual curriculum to our players which matches up with the school terms and runs for approximately 40 weeks. 

Our TDP teams compete in the highest level of competition provided by NFF. Selection for our TDP teams takes place in term four and players are assessed over a ten-week period.
