RTC 3 year Licence
« on: October 21, 2018, 10:08:58 AM »
was just wondering if anyone knew what is happening to RTC'S at the end of this season? The licences were for three years and that would be up....

It is going to very interesting to see what the FA has planned.

As part of the tendering process all the Tier 1 and Tier 2 women's clubs have to implement younger age group grassroots Development Teams to bring through young girls.

Some clubs may have already had an RTC and Development Teams in place, others have set them up Development Teams independently.
Each area will obviously be different but you may find they don't need to fund so many RTC's as they do currently, some areas may be well provisioned without the need for an RTC.

They of course were originally setup to give elite girls the enhanced coaching they needed but now a lot of the Development teams have UEFA B coaches and are overseen by UEFA A Coaches. The Women's Clubs want to expand their grassroots participation and hopefully going forwards help to build a fan base for the Women's teams.

I'm sure the FA have take a long hard look at all the systems in place and the large amounts of money they allocate every year.
The FA could carry on as is or decide to reallocate the funding. I'm excited and nervous to see which way they go with it!

Nothing around hull for about 40 miles

Is the rtc system geographically wrong ?

And don’t know how true it is but had a conversation with somebody who said the local fa can sometimes work against having an rtc in case it effects the local leagues too much, I asked my local fa if there’s any plans for an rtc in our city but got ignored

As far as I understand it the local FA doesn't have to be involved with running an RTC.  A local club such as Scunthorpe United for example could apply to the FA for an RTC Licence Tier 1,2 or 3 and then put together a financial plan with costings to support their bid. The club would have to make a financial commitment of up to £24k a year dependent on Tier level and then the FA would give them up to £60k a year to run it. They are also allowed to charge parents up to, but not exceeding £200 per year in fees. So all depends on who applies, which bids the FA likes and thinks are viable and which way the wind is blowing as to who gets the licence. Sparsely populated areas like Somerset area get a regional based more flexible support. Where as the likes of Greater London get more coverage. I do believe Manchester FA do hold a licence and they got Man U to run it for them for the last few years, but I am happy to be corrected on that.

I know the RTC system is favoured by most on here but the same money going into organising and supporting  grassroots leagues you could have a decent level of football closer to all players.   Yes as it is the standard is not always high but largely because the FA has pretty much left volunteer leagues to get on with it.

You don't need paid uefa A and B coaches especially at the younger ages you need good level 1 & 2 coaches who are committed to their players, too often people now are taking badges to advance their own coaching prospects not to advance their players.  Yes there are some great coaches at RTCs but there are some shockers too just as in grassroots.   

These days anyone with football knowledge and the interpersonal skills should be able to decide on a philosophy and find tons of resources online, books etc on how to coach towards that.

the players dont exhibit it,
some will play when there is no pressure ie a lesser team but when pressed/under pressure it doesnt happen
others rarely try with their limit being the centre backs splitting and that is it.

Currently at under 12s so still playing against boys
When we have played friendlys against other RTC’s certainly at our age group all of the RTC’s have tried playing a pass and move style or backed themselfs with the ball, havnt seen much hoofball, will be intrigued to see what next season brings when we go upto under 14s

From what I've seen they do tend to favour direct football in that they try and force things a bit - there is a reluctance to go back to keep possession.    Quite a lot of it is fairly rigid too - not a lot of "total football" with interchange of position - that strikes me as perhaps being over coached by an unimaginative coach and/or a fear of making a mistake in terms of being caught out of position.   Th movement is poor or else there is a lack of creative ball players in midfield - I haven't seen many passes where I'd think I wouldn't have seen that - but of course there are two ends to a pass.

The strengths are the athleticism, the tempo they play at, first touch is usually good, determination, some good individuals one on one, some good goalkeepers. 

I suppose summarising I think it's a lack of imagination in the play.  I wonder if the fashion for high pressing really helps develop youth players.  When you have very fit players pressing it's brave to try and play through it and it's often easier to play past it because a)if you lose it it's further up the pitch b) nobody will blame you for giving the ball away in front of your own goal.

Think I’m pretty spoiled with my daughter as some of her through balls I wouldn’t be able to see or pull off 😂😂😂😂

Well the future bodes well as I’ve yet to see any team at under 12s play hoofball

I'm not saying hoofball as such - they aren't lumping it into the box and trying to pick up the pieces. They just force the play a bit too much and lack imagination in their movement. Subjective opinion though.

I am informed that the FA are sending out an announcement this afternoon (10 December) regarding the plans for RTC's for the 2019/20 season onwards.

I am not aware if this is an announcement to existing RTC's first, followed by a general PR release. Or if this will just go global in one announcement.

Either way, it will be good to know what the plans are moving forward.
