12 & U13 Boys & Girls

The focus for U12s and U13s is learning, development, fun and social interaction.

As per the Football Australia curriculum, skill acquisition in a small sided format is the key focus for this age group.

Our coaches focus on teaching the 4 basic skills (striking the ball, running with the ball, 1 V 1 and first touch) while also introducing positional play and team structures.

Match day results are recorded and competition points and ladders are maintained.

Given that players learn and develop at their own pace, we continue with grading in U12s/U13s. Players are assessed and allocated to a team which best fits their level of skill and development needs.

Grading outcomes are Kangaroos (advanced), Wallabies (intermediate) or Joeys (beginner). The majority of players/teams are currently assessed as Wallabies and Joeys so we strongly encourage parents not to become too preoccupied with grading assessments. Participation at the right level is paramount to development. 

Training sessions are facilitated by volunteer coaches.

The majority of coaches at our Club are parent volunteers. In some instances, they may be former or current players or coaches of other sports. All coaches are strongly encouraged to complete an FV/FFA accredited coaching course for their relevant age group. The Club runs in-house coaching workshops and supports all coaches through a dedicated development program..

The Club also offers an 8-week goalkeeper training program.

It is a mandatory requirement for all coaches to complete a Working with Children check.
