Girls' Emerging Talent
The aim of the FAI Girls Emerging Talen Programme is to raise the technical ability of players across all levels of the game through the provision of further training and lifestyle development at regional level, which will ultimately prepare them for the next level which is International Football.
The programme aims to provide our emerging talent with a clear pathway by giving them the opportunity to train and play with the more talented players and coaches in their area, thus providing them with a more challenging level of training and development.
The Emerging Talent Programme will initially take place in 7 Regional Centres - Dublin, Dundalk, Donegal, Cork, Limerick, Carlow and Mayo starting in Mid November 2011, but will expand to 8 in mid January. The centres will cater for U19's (1993's, 94's, 95's) and U16's (1996's, 97's). They will follow a coaching syllabus as set out by our High Performance Director and the FAI Development Officers will be coaching at each centre.
Dave Connell the Under-19 International Manager says "The Emerging Talent Programme will allow all out International managers to evaluate the best players at a local and regional level. I feel that the emerging talent system as it grows will lead to a major improvement in the standard of individual players and consequently the international teams."
