About Us

Following a review from New Zealand Football (NZF) of clubs across the country, it was recommended there is more collaboration between clubs to achieve and maintain the necessary accredited programmes such as Skills Centres (SKC) & Talent Development Programmes (TDP). These achievements support our footballers and offer further opportunities should they wish.

FCTM recognises the importance of having these programmes being available for our junior & youth in Tauranga Moana. Accreditation of these programmes will allow all players to further development opportunities through

  • Increasing the quality of training opportunities.
  • Providing clear guidelines based on international best practice.
  • Creating additional pathways for youth footballers.
  • Enabling access to additional footballing opportunities, such as automatic entry into other competitions, such as the Northern Regional Football (NRF) & the new National Youth Leagues.

We welcome other clubs and schools to join, so their members can also access all the options that only FCTM will be offering in the Bay of Plenty.

FC Tauranga Moana is lucky to have the largest and most qualified coaching team in the Bay of Plenty, enabling coaches more opportunities to further their education and qualifications. Email kiaora@fctm.co.nz if you are interested in joining the team.
