U8 to U12

Grassroots Development U8-U12

Player Development Pathway

The major objective of this stage is to develop physical literacy and basic skills within children, through participation.

Without speed, agility, balance and co-ordination, as well as the ability to run, jump, throw, kick, catch and control the body (sensory awareness), children will not only be incomplete as soccer players, but will also not have the confidence or competence to take part in many sporting activities.

These skills will be delivered through programs centered around games-based and FUN (Foundation, Understanding, Nurturing) activities, with 100% involvement at all times.

Four - vs - Four festivals and similar small-sided games that allow the opportunity to express enjoyment and develop skills through games.
