Tasmania Bound

Adelaide City’s Daniel Scinto, Victor Kasimatis and Izac Carrozza will tomorrow depart for Devonport, Tasmania to take part in the 2017 Skill Acquisition Program (SAP) national carnival.

Conducted by Football Federation Australia (FFA), the event will see select u12 players from Australia convene to advance their football development, and technical abilities. Matches will be played over a three day tournament from Friday 3 march to Sunday 5 March inclusive.

The Skill Acquisition Program is a nationwide initiative of Football Federation Australia. A key aspect of the FFA National Curriculum is the implementation of a Skill Acquisition Program to perfect and accelerate the skill development of identified talented players at the critical ages of 9 to 13. These are the age groups universally acknowledged to be the optimal mental and physical phase in which children are able to learn motor skills.

The South Australian contingent will be managed by highly credentialed coach, and  former NSL and A-League stalwart, Richie Alagich. It will include players from numerous clubs across Adelaide.

In addition, Adelaide City FC’s Henry Filsell and Rocco Caruso have been selected as Shadow players for the 2017 u13 Skilleroos, and congratulations also to 2016 u12 Adelaide City FC Best and Fairest Joseph Coppola on being selected for the 2017 u13 Skilleroos.
