Girls SAP

The 2017 Girls Skill Acquisition Program is available to players born in 2005 – 2008 and runs out of two venues: Celebration Park in Balga (North) and Beelier Reserve in Beelier (South).

Sessions at both venues are on Saturday mornings and Monday evenings and run from February through to December.

The Skill Acquisition Program (SAP) is a key component of Football Federation Australia’s National Curriculum.

The Program is designed to perfect and accelerate the skill development of identified players between the critical ages of 9 to 12. This is the age group universally acknowledged to be the optimal mental and physical phase in which children are able to learn motor skills.

SAP’s aim to provide the necessary technical ‘tools’ to be able to play the game at the highest possible level with a focus on functional game skills.

The Skill Acquisition Program focuses on the development of four core (functional game) skills:

  • Striking the ball

  • First Touch

  • 1v1

  • Running with the ball
