Preseason Skill Centre

All our coaches are New Zealand Football Junior Level 3 qualified and the sessions in the programme are bespoke for the specific grades.

In the programme our coaches will create the optimum learning and fun environment, whilst being aware of the issues that may arise out of the four corner model, (Technical, Tactical, Psychological & Social) ensuring young players have the best possible chance of developing in the game.
