Skill Development Program (SDP)

Skill Development Program (2017 information coming soon)

Capital Football is excited to announce a fantastic opportunity for young players to train with our skilled and knowledgeable coaches and improve their essential football skills. 

The Capital Football Skill Development Program (SDP) is a football specific program for players looking to improve their four core skills: 1v1, first touch, running with the ball and striking the ball.

The SDP uses the same exercises as the Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) and appoint FFA qualified coaches to each squad. The squads available (subject to registration numbers) include U10 Boys, U10 Girls, U12 Boys and U12 Girls.

The SDP is an exciting, fun and invaluable learning experience for young players who are looking to advance their understanding of football, improve their fundamental skills and ability to play the game. The coaches are skilled and knowledgeable along with being highly enthusiastic and are sure to create an exciting environment for all participants.
