Clarence juniors try out for SAP program

June 22nd, 2022

JUNIOR footballers from across the Clarence have been put through their paces during the recent trials for the North Coast Football Skill Acquisition Phase program.

The Clarence juniors trained under the watchful eye of former Socceroo and Matildas coach Greg Brown, who is coaching The Clarence Skill Acquisition Phase (SAP) program.

The junior players tried out for the combined under 9s/10s and under 11s/12s squads at Ulmarra, which if successful will see them come together for 75-minute training sessions once a week.

The training follows and incorporates the four core skills and focuses on individual performance and game understanding, and awareness.

North Coast Football Player and Coach development manager Alex Nolan was on hand to help put the players through their paces, and said the trials would provide Clarence juniors the opportunity to train in a high-performance environment.

“We’re trying to identify and develop players from across the whole of North Coast Football, and we came up here to kickstart a SAP program and give the Clarence juniors a chance to be in a high expectation environment,” he said.

“The trials were meant to start in May but were pushed back, and the SAP squads will be selected in the coming weeks.”

The Clarence SAP program provides a clear and professionally delivered development opportunity for young girls and boys aged eight to twelve on the North Coast.

This program is for players serious about developing their football skills and furthering themselves in the years to come.

Players are selected for the program based on their current skill level, potential to develop the key skills required, attitude, and commitment to the program.
