Skills Development Program

Skills Development Program


The Skills Development Program (SDP) is a program run by Western Pride FC to develop players in accordance with the Skills Acquisition Program (SAP). The development teams play in the Football Brisbane Komodo League and train in conjunction with the SAP teams and coaches.

SDP is designed to perfect and accelerate the skill development of identified players between the critical ages of 9 to 12. This is the age group universally acknowledged to be the optimal mental and physical phase in which children are able to learn motor skills.

SDP’s aim is to provide the necessary technical ‘tools’ to be able to play the game at the highest possible level with a focus on functional game skills, with an immediate skills transfer into positioning and small-sided games being an absolute requirement.

It is based on world’s best practice and has been developed by internationally acclaimed Technical Coaches and the FFA Technical Department.

While the long-term plan is to implement SAP/SDP programs across the state to provide more players with an opportunity to be trained through the Skill Acquisition coaching program and SAP Coaches, Football Queensland is focusing more resources into coach education to reach this objective.
