2020 Skills Development Programme

The aim of our Skills Development Programme is to develop and progress the young players of our club to advance their skills, playing ability and confidence on the pitch to become the best footballers possible. We have developed a program based on NZF best practices that fits all ages and skill levels to ensure every player gets the most out of the program and this will be delivered by NZF qualified coaches.
Starting at the beginning of each school term will be delivering a structured skills and attributes program over a 10-week term delivered by first team player Daniel Campbell and assisted by other NZ qualified coaches which will provide:
-              Improvement in individual skill level
-              A greater technical appreciation of the game
-              Technical ability on the ball with a better awareness and confidence
-              A better understanding of positional play and the movement required both on and off the ball

Reviews from 2019 Programmes

"The skills training is great for players who would like to improve in all aspects of football. The difference in players doing the skills training and those who don't in the same age group is huge. I can definitely recommend skills training for any child that loves the game and would like to improve and prepare for the season." - Parent of child who participated

"The skills centre is a very professionally run programme, with great coaching, activities and drills. It is great value for money and I can already see a noticeable difference - Nikki" - Parent of child who participated

"Fantastic programme. Thank you to all the dedicated coaches for having the patience to teach these kids not only football, discipline as well. My son really enjoyed the programme and looking forward to next term sessions. I'm really happy with the progress he has made." - Parent of child who participated

"Fantastic programme with the right level of time spent on single activities and to maintain engagement whilst having fun. All the kids have progressed well, enjoy it and I'm sure are delighted to have been part of it. Coach Kieran has been excellent and extremely pleased he has taken the skills class." - Parent of child who participated
