The Technical Advisory Group (TAG) of the National Coaching and Training Centre (NCTC) now 'Coaching Ireland' has developed a draft model for Long-Term Player/Athlete Development. The main phases of the model are explained below. Please note that not all players will smoothly assimilate to all phases in a perfect manner. Many will develop different capacities at different rates. These phases have been adapted to Camogie for the development of a Camogie Player Pathway: Camogie Workshops
