A total of 15 Adelaide City FC junior boys have been selected for the 2016/2017 Skill Acquisition Program (SAP) with players coming from both JPL and JSL teams to train in this FFA/FFSA development program.
A key aspect of the Football Federation Australia National Curriculum is the implementation of a Skill Acquisition Program to perfect and accelerate the skill development of identified players at 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.
The FFSA in conjunction with the FFA will be commencing the Skill Acquisition Programs during the summer period (2016/17)
Adelaide City has 15 players across the 2005 – 2006 born squads, with thos players being selected from both JPL and JSL teams. These programs supplement club training with additional sessions weekly while playing with the club in regular competition.
