SAP (Skills Acquisition Phase) League

The goal of the NSFA SAP (Skills Acquisition Phase) League is to improve development opportunities for players and coaches within our local football clubs, while also underpinning the Northern Tigers SAP and the NSFA Super League and Diamond League competitions.

The NSFA SAP League Clubs have been announced for 2021 and Turramurra United is extremely pleased to be able to offer this program to our players in U8-11 again in 2021.

TUFC development program in 2021

TUFC will be entering teams in the NSFA Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) League in 2021. We will be selecting a SAP team and a development team in each age group from U8 to U11. Both the SAP team and the development team in each age group will receive 2 nights a week XLR8 coaching for at least 22 weeks in the 2021 football season (including the pre-season) and match-day coaching. We will be integrating the training of the two development program teams in each age group as much as possible.

Training will be Mondays and Wednesday at NTRA.

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.
  • 15 weeks of matches plus gala days (+ pre-season trial games).
  • A training shirt.

The total fee for the TUFC development program teams is yet to be finalised, but is likely to be around $800 for the season (including a deposit).

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


What if my child does not make or doesn’t want to try out for a SAP or development program team?

Community football is a major focus at TUFC, and we will continue to run as many teams as we can to serve players in the U8-U11 age group, especially for those who just want to play with their friends.

I would like my child to try out for the Turramurra United SAP and development program teams, when are the trials and how do I register?

Please register via the following link and mark your calendars for the following dates. We will stay in touch to keep you updated with reminders as we get closer to the trial dates. You only need to register once, however need to attend both dates.


REGISTER TODAY – there is no fee to register. When the teams are selected, a deposit will be required to accept a place in the development program.
