Northern NSW Footballers to Test Themselves at Rescheduled Telstra State SAP Championships for Boys
More than 220 of the most talented young, male footballers in Northern NSW will have the chance to come together again at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility this weekend to compete in the rescheduled Telstra SAP State Championships for Boys.
Earlier this year the Telstra State SAP Championships were scheduled in Coffs Harbour, however, heavy rainfall leading up to and during the Championships forced Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) to cancel and reschedule.
The Telstra SAP State Championships for Boys is contested by the Member Zones who support NNSWF’s strategic direction through the implementation of Licensed Skill Acquisition Programs (SAP’s). Squads representing the NNSWF Newcastle SAP and a composite NNSWF Select SAP will also participate in the 11 and 12 Years divisions.
The composition of the Telstra SAP State Championships for Boys has been amended to acknowledge the vital contribution of Licensed SAP’s to the development of players within NNSWF’s Talented Player Pathway. Skill development is clearly the primary focus of the Skill Acquisition Phase, however, players also have to develop their understanding of the game in order to apply these skills in an appropriate context.
Teams across Northern NSW will include, Macquarie Football, Hunter Valley Football, Northern Inland Football, Football Mid North Coast, North Coast Football, NNSW Newcastle SAP, and NNSW Select SAP.
The first matches commence at 5:00 pm on Friday, August 18th, with both 11 and 12 Years Boys matches played simultaneously on two fields – Field 1 hosting the 12 Years Boys and Field 2 hosting the 11 Years Boys.
The presentation ceremony for the Championships will take place from 6:35 pm on Sunday 20th August.
