BUCCS FOOTBALL ACADEMY
Under 9-12 Squads (Skills Acquisition Phase)
SAP (Skill Acquisition Phase) is a key component of Football Federation Australia’s National Curriculum, designed to accelerate the skill development of identified players between the critical ages of 9 to 12.
The Buccs Football Academy will offer programs for players in the U9, U10, U11 and U12 age groups in the Fraser Coast and Bundaberg. The program will run parallel to the Wide Bay Buccaneers FQPL season. The Skill Acquisition Phase program serves to prepare players to enter the FQPL with the Wide Bay Buccaneers.
As this is the golden age of motor learning, it is important to give players access to good quality training environments close to home, which focus on the development of game related functional skills. These are the technical skills a player needs to perform effectively during a match.
Under 13-16 Extension Squad
Four players from each junior age group (under 13, 14, 15, 16) will be coached with the Wide Bay Buccaneers Queensland Premier League Squads for the duration of the season. These players will remain registered with their clubs and may get the opportunity to play with in the QPL as an invited player if the coach requires additional players throughout the season.
