Tarxien Rainbows Nursery adopts DAP Programme

tarxien-nursery-dapAs part of their athletes development plan Tarxien Rainbows FC Youth Nursery, have embarked on a project in collaboration with fun fit friends through their Developing Athletes Performance (DAP) programme.

The team of qualified trainers running the DAP programme are mentored by Renzo Kerr-Cumbo the ex Tarxien Rainbows, Sliema Wanderers and Mqabba FC Assistant Coach and Physical Trainer.

DAP is based on an innovative approach to sports specific fitness training. While the importance remains on the sport the athletes plays, the programme focuses on all the fitness components necessary for the individual athlete.

This is only possible with the use of specific equipment and sports specific exercises. Over and above this, the programme includes fitness data collection and athletes analyses. The programme also focuses on educating the athlete. As part of this programme, Ms Dorianne Caruana Bonnici, football nutrition specialist will be also providing a talk to all participants.

At Tarxien Rainbows we aim to work harder in taking the nursery a step higher in all necessary areas of the athletes development. The inclusion of the DAP programme is considered an important investment in our group ages of the Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17. Known for their hard work in the development of female football, Tarxien Rainbows have made sure that their groups of girls also participate in the DAP programme which is now in its second week.
