Youth Development Program

For Clubs, Schools or Coaches seeking to implement the Spanish Youth System.

The program is intended to mentor and aid Clubs and Schools interested in rolling out a development system across their teams, based on the basic training philosophy used in the grassroots of the most successful Spanish youth teams. The philosophy is simple - teach kids to play in a fun yet disciplined manner; teach them to execute the basics well; develop their playing intelligence as well as football skills and build a coaching platform that ensures the players get consistently exposed to this philosophy in a repetitive and consistent manner as they progress through teams and age-groups.

 

Our programs are unique in Australia and are valuable tools that can be used to build a true Youth Development system and football philosophy that can be rolled out across all teams. All our programs follow and are in line with Football Federation Australia’s National Curriculum.
