Tim Wareing - Academy Director

Academy Director

Tim Wareing is from Belfast and has been involved in football all his life.  Holding the prestigious UEFA European ‘A’ Licence, he has over 25 years of football coaching experience.  This extends from grassroots, to semi professional level.  During his six years at Irish Premiership Club, Lisburn Distillery, he implemented a very successful Youth Academy.

It was after standing down from his role that Tim decided to take a sabbatical.  He used his time to recharge his batteries and re-educate himself, visiting some of the top European Clubs, including FC Barcelona, SC Braga, Ajax and PSV Eindhoven, where he studied and exchanged ideas in youth development.

His elite programme has featured on ITV and a number of National newspapers, as well as Tim being interviewed on National shows and even Sky News!

Tim and his talented team also deliver a community program.  Operating in every county across Northern Ireland they have over 25 weekly centres managed by a team of 20 coaches.  This is from their award winning Toddler Soccer program and Mini Soccer, through to their school and Elite program.  TW Sports celebrated 15 years in business in August 2020.  They work with over 500 children every week.

Along with the program in Northern Ireland Tim has been hired to deliver clinics in Southern Ireland, England, Europe, USA and Australia.  Tim has written 4 books; ’Toddler Soccer The Essential Guide To A Toddler’s First Steps In Soccer’, ‘1-on-1 Coaching The Secrets To Improve ALL Football Players – GUARANTEED!’, ‘The Secrets To Developing ELITE Youth Football Players’, and 'The Secrets to Delivering Awesome Football Coaching Clinics - GUARANTEED!' have sold in over 30 different countries.
