Coaching Resources

FFA National Curriculum extracted resources

By providing the following resources (below), I hope it gives you some renewed enthusiasm in endeavouring to have all our players not only enjoying themselves but developing their skills at an age appropriate level along the way.

The following documents have been extracted from the FFA National Curriculum.

Each age group Phase has been separated for ease of access with the relevant information of the Model Coaching Session Plan that can be implemented for the season ahead.

It is important for the natural ongoing development of the players to adhere pretty closely to these Model Sessions.

(Obviously there may be a number of similar relevant ‘practices’ that could be used in place of the suggested ones if you feel it would assist in the players understanding in what is being taught.)

U5-U8:  Discovery Learning Phase

U9-U12:  Skill Acquisition Phase
(Since the QCSA introduces the full field game play for U9’s, an understanding of some of the Game Training practices may be of assistance also.)

U17 – Seniors:  Performance Phase

The FFA National Curriculum is a 300 page document which includes all of the above Phases, plus also includes much of the Vision and Philosophy behind it. This is well worth the read.
