SWQ Thunder Skills Acquisition Program [SAP] Academy
In relationship with FFA & FQ, SWQ Thunder Football Club has established the SWQ Thunder Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) Academy for U10, U11 Boys and U10-12 Girls.
The SAP is designed by the FFA and plays a pivotal role in the building blocks of player development. This phase is designed to develop the ‘functional game skills’ and technical ability to provide a foundation for the next phase of development.
The Skills Acquisition Phase focuses on 4 Core Skills -
1. FIRST TOUCH – Controlling the ball with all allowed body parts
2. STRIKING THE BALL – this includes all forms of striking the ball such as short/long passing, shooting, & crossing.
3. 1 v 1 – all moves, feints and accelerations to get past and away from an opponent
4. RUNNING WITH THE BALL – At speed (with a lot lot of space) or ‘dribbling’ (in tight areas), this includes techniques for protecting the ball and changing direction.
T Through player identification evenings in April/May, Players have been selected into U10 & U11 Boys Squads and a U10-12 Girls Squad.
The boys squads are training twice a week on Mondays & Fridays, with the Girls squad in training on Mondays.
This is a 20 week program including 4 carnivals after each module is completed.
Carnival one was hosted by Olympic FC , Yeronga last Sunday 1st June.
Our boys teams played against Gold Coast, Brisbane City & Western Pride SAP Teams. Our Girls Team played again Brisbane Strikers & the Western Pride Boys team. A terrific effort from all involved from players to parents and coaches.
Our training continues, though players have a break over the school holidays with the next Carnival scheduled for 3rd August.
