ABOUT THE SKILL ACQUISITION PROGRAM (SAP):
Macquarie Football is licenced by Football Federation Australia and Northern NSW Football to run the Skill Acquisition Program (SAP) in the Macquarie Zone. The SAP is part of FFA’s Talented Player Pathway where identified talented football players aged 9 – 12 years are selected into one training centre.
The Best v the Best. The structure of the SAP involves the best players in each age group training or playing in up to 3 sessions per week for 30 weeks of the year in addition to playing in SAP gala day games against other Zones such as Northern NSW Newcastle Football SAP, Hunter Valley Football SAP, Football Mid North Coast SAP and the Emerging Jets SAP.
Over the last three seasons 30 girls have graduated from the Macquarie Football SAP to the Emerging Jets. We are extremely proud to have helped so many girls be selected into the highest level of football available to them in their age-group.
In 2018 Macquarie Football Under 10s, 11s and 12s Girls will participate in the Inter-district Miniroos games. We believe that by training with their peers two nights a week and representing Macquarie Football in highly competitive games against mixed sex teams in small-sided games (7v7 or 9v9) each weekend, they will have greater opportunities to improve their skills and go on to bigger and better things, e.g. the Emerging Jets.
Please make sure you complete your registration by 5pm Friday October 6th, 2017. You must be registered to trial in order to be selected for the U10 , U11 and U12 Macquarie SAP teams.
If you have any questions or need further information please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Yours in Football,
