Athlete Development



The program aims to deal with Australian athletes’ psychological and mental behaviour.


The central core of our curriculum is to train minds. They stay focused and overcome all the obstacles because, as an athlete, you have to prepare yourself physically and mentally. Sometimes our fear of failure led us to stress or pressure because we try to escape from the situations without solving them. At TLC mentoring, we thrive on giving the best training to our young athletes to open up and face all the challenges in their life without any fear.

  • Sharing Experiences:
    Knowing successful Athletes and learning about their experiences is what keeps a person going. Getting to know someone who is a gold medallist makes us crave more for success. “Experience is the teacher of all things.”
  • Familiarisation:
    One of the essential steps of Athlete development is to get familiar with the basis of games. You should know about the environment in which we play the game. Holding information about the rules, environment, and base makes it much easier for an Athlete.
  • Mental fitness program:
    The TLC mentoring, in collaboration with Black Dog, provides services for mental fitness. The program lets the athlete get involved with School students and mend their mental might. Mental fitness matters. So why suffer in silence? Instead, get yourself involved in a mental fitness program.
  • Presentations:
    The presentation is of a maximum of thirty minutes, covering the basics about the importance of exercises, challenges and ways to improve and strengthen mental health.
  • The Bite back:
    The bike back is a challenge that improves mental health, raises happiness level, brings down pressure and sadness, and meliorate friendship.
  • TLC Mentoring athlete advisor committee:
    Our advisory committee is responsible for advising the high performing sport. Our main goal is to make sure that all of our Athletes have a secure future.
  • The job of the members:
    1. Their job is to give guidance to TLC mentoring on ongoing and upcoming game plans.

  • Share a Yarn:
    The main aim of the Share a Yarn program is to form a connection between Athletes and Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders, abbreviated as the ATSI community. To allow athletes to expand their knowledge and rid themselves of misinformation or biases about the history, culture, lands, and people of the ATSI community.
  • FTEM pathway:
    People participate in sports for many reasons. Some wish to live an active and healthy lifestyle, some partake in the thrill of the sport only for friends, and a few people set goals to win medals and adulation.
    TLC developed a foundation named Foundation, Talent, Elite and Mastery Framework (FTEM) to fulfil the mentioned three types of people or categories. FTEM’s first purpose is to provide practical tools and assistance to the coaches, clubs, teachers and parents and set a pathway for the athlete. Its second purpose is to motivate the sportsperson in their field and drive them to accumulate achievements.

Role of FTEM:
To spread awareness of physical literacy and support life-long physical activity as it aids athletes in relevant research and provides them with a discipline to guide their career.
FTEM identifies the interior talent, refines their skill and prepares them for a journey through sports. To summarise, their ambition is akin to sifting water in search of gold. But also for the sake of the gold and Australia as a whole.

Supporting sports in Schools:

A school is a place where a child spent most of his time. They learn to adapt to do new things, mostly from schools.

Sport Australia has taken a step to support the sport in schools so that the children and young people can learn and develop new skills from in their early ages.

Physical Literacy:

Physical literacy plays a central role in everyone’s life. The teachers, parents and coaches need to teach young minds about physical literacy.

Physical literacy is the development of sports skills that actively allow children to participate in physical activities like sports.

Children’s must learn the movement of sports skills in four basic environments:

On the ground

In the water

On snow and Ice

In the Air

It will surely help the individual to participate confidently in all sport or physical activities.

Australian literacy framework plays a significant role in developing physical literacy in every era of life.

Physical literacy provides you:

Physical fitness

Strengths to be active

Knowledge about movements

During your physical literacy training, you can work on some other skills as well. Those skills may include:

Psychological skills

Physical skills

Cognitive skills

It is not necessary to work on all the skills at one time.
