Smarter than Smoking Skill Development Program

Registrations are now open for the 2017 Skill Development Program (SDP).

The SDP provides training sessions that are additional to club football and focus on core skills – first touch, striking the ball, one-versus-one situations and running with the ball.

The program is based on Football Federation Australia’s National Curriculum.

Players in U8 to U13 age groups focus on developing functional game skills, while the U14 and U15 programs target the development of tactical awareness, perception and decision making using a game-related approach.

The SDP is an exciting, fun and invaluable learning experience for young players who are looking to improve their technical skills.

The coaches are highly motivated and enthusiastic and will create a great learning environment for all participants.

The SDP is designed to provide sessions that are supplementary to club training and matches.
