Skill Acquisition Program (SAP)

Eastern Suburbs FC is proud to have both Girls and Boys Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) licenses.  Easts are one of the few SAP Clubs in QLD that have 3 SAP girls teams.  This allows us to put our U11 and U12 girls into teams that suit their current development level where they are inn a position to maximise their development. SAP is the highest level U9-U12 can play at in Australia.

The ages of 9-12 years  is the golden age of learning technique which FFA call the Skill Acquisition Phase (SAP). The focus at this age is on the development of game related functional skills.

At Eastern Suburbs FC, players within the U9 – U12 SAP Program are undertaking a training and game development philosophy which has the opportunity to elevate them to the National Premium League (NPL).
