TALENT DEVELOPMENT youth
It is important that players are given the opportunity to develop in the best possible environment to cultivate their talent.
Youth players require different types of challenges with varying levels of ability to compliment their current stage of development.
Our talent pathway for U13 - U17 mixed grades focuses on developing players based on the key principles within our club playing philosophy. Squads are selected each year via multiple sessions in February (2022 dates tbc). Our programme is aligned with the NRF football playing calendar with squads training 2 to 3 times per week and playing on Sunday’s.
We also acknowledge some players prefer to play with friends socially but still compete in a competitive environment. Our Saturday community football teams are an option for players not quite at the stage of development to play in the Sunday regional youth leagues or players who do not want to be selected for the Sunday squads.
