NORTH WELLINGTON ONSLOW ‘TDP’ CURRICULUM STRUCTURE
The Curriculum focuses on the four moments in the game. It is divided into two development phases: the ‘Game Training Phase’ and the ‘Performance Phase’. The Game Training phase is designed to enable players to learn how to use the core skills they developed in the Skill Acquisition phase to play the game within the structure of 11 v 11. This will help prepare players for the Performance Phase when they reach senior football. As players progress into the senior framework the foundation of practice completed at the 13-18 year age groups should give them the ability and confidence to play in line with New Zealand Football’s philosophy in the context of the modern football game
