ACT Youth Development Pathway Review

Capital Football recently engaged the football community in a review of the development programs offered to the ACT's young players following three years of the Canberra United Academy's supplementation of development opportunities provided by clubs and underpinning of the talent identification process for State Team selection.

The review focused on youth development, with programs considered from U/9 through to U/17 age grades.


Review Documents & Materials


The aim of the review was to analyse development programs delivered nationally, model alternate development structures, measure those models against local football needs and Football Federation (FFA) objectives, and then engage with the football community to gather feedback.
