Summer Development Program


The GUFC Summer Development Program for 5-12 year olds

The Summer Development Program is for any child aged from 5 through to 12 (in the 2020 year) 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 level, 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 Head Coach. Players are coached by quality GUFC coaches in appropriately sized groups as per their age.

The 9 week program 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.

Registrations for our SDP are now CLOSED for the 2020 Term 1 program,


The cost is once again $150 for new players which includes training shirt, ball, cap, drink bottle and bag or $120 for returning players given they already have their kit.

For those of you who have enrolled and paid for the 2020 Term 1 program, please ensure you have TeamApp for all communications. It is also you best source for the weekly schedule and announcements.
SDP commences on Thursday 6 February at Bonner Ovals. The session starts at 6pm but it’s always best if you could get there 15 minutes early for administration purposes and so we can start on time.
There are 9 SDP sessions over the course of the term.  The dates and locations for these 9 sessions are as follows:
  1. Thursday, 6-7pm, 6/2 to 12/3, Bonner Ovals
  2. Saturday, 11:30 – 12:30, 21/3 to 4/4, Nicholls Synthetic Ovals
Please remember for every session to wear your sky blue SDP jersey, with appropriate shorts, long socks, ball, shin pads and football boots. Also bring plenty of water and sunscreen.
