What is the discovery phase?

The discovery phase is one of the 4 building blocks within the FFA’s football curriculum.

Your child will be in this phase from ages 5 to 8. The discovery phase places places a high emphasis on helping young players enjoy the game of football, while being able to discover their own skills.

Coaches within the discovery phase do not concentrate on ‘coaching’, but instead concentrate on organising fun football exercises. This allows players to discover their limitations through trial & error.  Emphasis is also placed on natural development – learning football by playing football

What is the skill aquisition phase?

The skill acquisition phase (SAP) is one of the 4 building blocks within the FFA’s football curriculum.

Your child will be in this phase from ages 9 to 12. At this stage young people are presented with a huge window of opportunity. ‘The Golden age of motor Development.

SAP is designed to perfect and accelerate the skill development of players between the critical ages of 9 to 12. This is the age group universally acknowledged to be the optimal mental and physical phase in which children are able to learn motor skills.

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

It is based on world’s best practice and has been developed by internationally acclaimed Technical Coaches and the FFA Technical Department.
