2022 U8 Skills Acquisition Phase (SAP) League and development team trials

As a community football club committed to playing our part in the growth and development of our young players, Turramurra United FC  is delighted to announce the trial dates for the selection of our U8 development program teams, one of which will play in the NSFA SAP League, for 2022. The SAP League is a mixed (boys and girls play together) development league for U8-U11 players with the goal to improve development opportunities for players and coaches within local football clubs, while also underpinning the Northern Tigers SAP and the NSFA Super League and Diamond League competitions. TUFC successfully entered U8-U11 teams in the SAP League in the past 2 years.

We will be selecting a SAP team and a development team in the U8 age group for 2022. Both the SAP team and the development team will receive 2 nights a week XLR8 coaching for at least 22 weeks in the 2022 football season (including the pre-season) and match-day coaching. We will be integrating the training of these two teams as much as possible.

 Turramurra United Football Club SAP League and development teams will receive:

  • A training and match day coach
  • At least 22 weeks of 2 nights a week training.
  • At least 15 weeks of matches plus gala days (+ pre-season trial games)
  • A training shirt
  • A TUFC jacket

The total fee for the TUFC development program teams is yet to be finalised, but is likely to be around $850 for the season (including a deposit of $250).

The TUFC U8 SAP and development teams will be selected after the trials (see below for dates and times), based on performance in the trials.
