ESFAWhat the program includes

SAP incorporates the fundamental principles of the FFA National Curriculum and MiniRoos Regulations, including; match formats (U9 in 7v7, U10 and U11 in 9v9), training loads, match loads, program duration and field dimensions.

SAP is a key part of the Integrated Talented Player Pathway for boys and girls.

ESFA has a proud history with youth representative programs, including winning the Centenary Cup in both 2011 and 2012 and players who have come through ESFA programs in recent years now in Australian youth teams and FNSW Institute programs as well as a variety of clubs that will compete in NPL1 and NPL2 in 2015.

This is a forty-week program designed to provide the best local players with an excellent coaching and game program and will include:

  • Training two nights per week from October to December 2014 and February 2015
  • Training three nights per week from March to August 2015
  • Game phase incorporating 18 games and two gala days from March to August 2015
  • Home games and most away games will be played on Sunday mornings, with occasional Saturday away games

We will again enjoy the expert tutelage of Greg Kokoviadis leading a team of qualified and professional coaches.

This is an opportunity for players to lay down a strong technical foundation to their football that will help them to advance their skills over time and enable them to pursue their ambitions.

All selected players will receive full playing and training kits, tracksuit, polo and bag.

Register now for trials

Places are limited and the standard of selected players will be high, so trials will be very competitive.
