SAP Trials - Buderim and Caloundra

A message to all Sunshine Coast Football Clubs

Sunshine Coast Football congratulates Caloundra FC and Sunshine Coast Wanderers on their recent efforts and being successful in the Football Queensland Skill Acquisition Program License applications.

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

The Program is designed to perfect and accelerate the skill development of identified players between the critical ages of Under 9 to Under 12, having the "best of the best" players on the Coast training and playing together in these respective Elite Development Programs.

This is the age group universally acknowledged to be the optimal mental and physical phase in which children are able to learn motor skills and the correct football techniques.

SAP’s aim is to provide the necessary technical ‘tools’ to be able to play the game at the highest possible level with a focus on the functional game skills - striking the ball, first touch, running with the ball and 1 v 1's, with an immediate skills transfer into positioning and small-sided games being an absolute requirement.

It is based on the 'World’s Best Practice' and has been developed by internationally acclaimed Technical Coaches and the FFA Technical Department.

With this in mind, SCF ask that all clubs please forward the following information and encourage their players to trial and be part of what promises to be a Wonderful year for Football on the Coast.
