Tim Wareing appeared on the Maurice Jay Show on U105. The interview shared details about the TW Sports program as well as Tim's new exciting project with TW Braga.
Maurice Jay discovered that Northern Ireland kids can get started in football from the age of 2 while Tim also provides competitive teams linked with Portuguese professional side, SC Braga.
TW Braga is completely different from any boys club. Not only does it increase the contact time & practice time for players but it also provides a qualified team of specialists. This is from the coaching team to a keeper coach, conditioning coach, education officer & pastoral care.

18 months ago a very exciting project was started. Tim Wareing met with his good friend Hugo Vicente who was the assistant Academy Director at Portuguese professional side, SC Braga. It was on the back of that conversation that something very exciting would be launched in Northern Ireland!
TW Braga kicked off last season in the Lisburn League. After only forming in the middle of June 2013 they were ready to kick off at the start of the 2013/2014 season in the Lisburn League at U12 level. They would finish the season in the top 5 & go on to finish 3rd in the Foyle Cup...a disallowed goal & narrow 1-0 defeat in the semi against Co. Cavan & Monaghan only kept them from the final! They would be respected by the brand of football they would play.
This week is very exciting as not only do they sit 2 points off the top of the table (now U13) but have reached the semi final of the shield. They play Lisburn Youth this Saturday. They have also progressed to the next round of the NIBFA Cup after putting out last years runners up, Loughgall.
What is different at Braga that is not present in many other clubs? The main thing Academy Director & UEFA A Licence coach, Tim Wareing, wanted to tackle was the contact time. The 2002's will train Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday & play Saturday. The players also have the option to attend additional sessions throughout the TW program. Many of the players also receive 1-on-1 coaching & small group coaching. This additional contact time is developing them a lot quicker & improving them technically & tactically.
Tim also has built a team of experts around him to support his players & parents. This includes a conditioning coach, keeper coach, education officer, pastoral carer & of course all coaches are hand picked to insure they are most suitable for each age group.
The environment is professional but relaxed so the players can express themselves. They learn during the week within the sessions & on a Thursday a class room session that includes match analysis. So come a Saturday they have the freedom to play.
TW Braga also focus on life skills. Over the past 18 months the children have been taught basic first aid, had a work shop on nutrition & a talk on Money Matters from the Ulster Bank. Future life skills will include web safety & awareness on drink & drugs.
The club would not be as successful it it wasn't for the ongoing support from it's sponsors SUBWAY & Podium 4 Sport. Likewise the dedication & support they receive from the parents & players. The icing on the cake come from a top team of coaches & staff.
Currently TW Braga have teams for 2002-2006 children. If you would like more information or request a trial contact Tim on; 07740120788 or by email.
