Talent Identification Programme (TIPs)

The Talent Identification Programme (TIPs) is an INVITE-ONLY programmes which provide opportunities for 5-12 year olds to benefit from advanced coaching and to develop within the Derby County player pathway where applicable.

Sessions are designed to develop the skills relevant to the modern game. All of our sessions are designed to develop the skills relevant to the modern game and are delivered at a high tempo.

In addition, TIPs has enrolled in an Elite Game Programme with other clubs in both the Premier League and Football League, including Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion, Leicester City, Shrewsbury Town and Cardiff City, allowing players the opportunity to experience playing within this environment. Grassroots fixtures are also arranged where applicable to ensure as many TIPs players as possible can represent the programme.
