Player Development

Young Lions Program

This Junior Development program is for all players in the Kingborough, Channel and Huon Valley regions (you do not have to be a registered player of KLUFC).

The Skills program is an 8 week training program (training twice a week) for players who would like to further develop their football skills. The program focuses on developing the four core skills (first touch, 1 v 1, running with the ball and striking the ball) and these form the teaching platforms that the Football Federation Australia (FFA) National Curriculum outlines. A key aim of the program is to perfect and accelerate the skill development of identified players at the critical ages of 9 – 13 years.

The technical and operational aspects of the program is managed by KLUFC, all coaching staff will be FFA accredited and the program is fully supported by Football Federation Tasmania (FFT), providing technical support and guidance when required.

Players are selected for participation through a trial process and the program is user pay to help cover coaching and operational costs.

    FFA Curriculum

    The National Curriculum was one of the key initiatives put forward in the FFA’s National Football Development Plan, released in November 2007. Since that time, a substantial amount of work has been undertaken in order to create a curriculum that will provide national guidance and an integrated and consistent approach to the development of players and coaches throughout the country. The FFA National Curriculum is an excellent resource explaining the pathways for Junior players.
