ffa logoIntroduction

SAP (Skill Aquisition Phase) is a key component of Football Federation Australia’s National Curriculum, designed to accelerate the skill development of identified players between the critical ages of 9 to 13.

The number of clubs offering SAP programs will grow from 12 to 25 in 2018, giving more young Queenslanders access to quality coaching and competition than ever before.

Each club will offer programs for players in the U9, U10, U11 and U12 age groups.

SAP will also expand into regional Queensland for the first time with Mackay, Townsville and Wide Bay all receiving licences.

Another change to SAP will be the introduction of weekly fixtures between SEQ-based teams, giving players an opportunity to practice skills honed during mid-week training sessions.

The Skill Acquisition Phase program serves to prepare players for Queensland’s elite football competitions, the PlayStation 4 National Premier Leagues Queensland and Football Queensland Premier League.
