U8 SAP Trials
We are pleased to announce that Oran Park Rovers have been granted a Macarthur SAP Licence (Under 8s) for 2021.
SAP refers to the Skill Acquisition Phase of player development, defined at the ages 8 – 12. Football NSW have established ‘SAP Leagues’, which requires NPL Clubs and Associations to hold a license to participate in. The MFA, Macarthur Rams currently have teams within the Football NSW SAP League, while the Macarthur Rams Women are also represented in the Football NSW Girls-SAP League (fulltime program).
The recent review of Representative Football identified the need to provide more young players across the region with high quality development opportunities via the establishment of a new development League for SAP-aged players. This ‘SAP League’ would act as the top tier of local football for such age groups, commencing at U8.
The goal of the new ‘SAP League’ is to improve development opportunities for more players and coaches within the local clubs of Macarthur. As with other local Leagues, this new ‘SAP League’ will be managed and supported by the MFA.
We will be holding trials for the Under 8 SAP League team on the following dates;
Tuesday February 2nd | 5pm- 6pm
Friday February 5th | 5pm- 6pm
