The ETC aims to produce female footballers of international calibre and has a track record of developing players who progress within the FA's talent development structure. We deliver across three age groups - U12, U14 and U16 - at which stage players move to more senior football.

The ETC focuses on individual player development and provides girls with high-quality coaching and support. Players are invited to attend two sessions each week, one session for technical football skills development and another for strength and conditioning and/or movement programme.

All sessions are delivered by FA-qualified football coaches or industry-qualified strength and conditioning and performance coaches. Sessions are delivered within the University campus, allowing access to high-quality facilities.

As part of the programme, ETC selected players will benefit from:

  • high-quality football training sessions on a weekly basis
  • weekly strength and conditioning programme appropriate to age and development
  • access to a suite of injury and rehabilitation services delivered at the University
  • full Teesside Sport training and matchday kit by Kukri
  • opportunity to represent the club in an annual games programme against other ETC setups
  • access to education services within sports nutrition and sports psychology
  • opportunity to take part in the programme whilst playing for their grassroots club.
