General Information about our SDP

The GUFC Summer Development Program for 5-12 year olds

The Summer Development Program is for any child aged from 5 through to 12 who would like to continue with their training over summer. There are no trials – every child is welcome. Whether they are new to the sport or have been playing for years, the Summer Development Program has been created to not only help children to grow in the sport they love, but also to meet new people and have fun.

This program has age specific sessions approved by GUFC’s Coaching Team with input from our technical team. Players are coached in appropriately sized groups as per their age.

The program is normally 9 weeks, but given the COVID complexities of 2021, we have only been able to offer a 6 week program this year.

The SDP focuses on four key development skills (first touch, 1v1, running with the ball and striking the ball) along with small sided games to put it all into practice.

This program has been a huge success in previous years, with limited spaces available due to player:coach ratio and COVID safety.

So get in quick for 2021! Places are not confirmed until payment is paid. All details are on the SDP registration form.

For the 2021 condensed season, the program will cost $100 with ball (note: we will not be offering jerseys this year). 

SDP will commence Tuesday 16 November and will be run at Bonner Fields from 6.00-7.00pm (time TBC).

Our SDP is run by Rob McLaughlin and his team of enthusiastic coaches. Rob looks forward to running the SDP again.
