HOW TO BOOK A COURSE

 

The Club is pleased to offer a range of player development courses this year. 


Player Development Programme (PDP) 

Following a review of the Player Development Programme (PDP), Ellerslie AFC has made changes to the programme for the 2020 season. PDP will continue to provide opportunities for players at the club to further develop their footballing ability and will move toward meeting the training requirements stipulated by Auckland Football Federation for its teams to qualify to play in the highest youth grades.

The programme will be for players that are selected in the Red teams for Under 9 - 12 grades for both boys and girls along with selected Black team players. The intention is to expand the programme further across the junior and youth grades in future seasons.

PDP will involve one extra training session per week that will be additional to team training sessions and will run for 20 weeks through Terms 1, 2 and 3.

The programme will be delivered by the club’s paid coaching staff and overseen by the club’s Director of Football (DOF), Fred de Jong and the Director of Coaching (DOC), Ryan Shiffman.

Players involved in PDP will therefore have the following programme each week:

  • Monday – individual based training  (delivered by paid coaching staff plus DOF and DOC)
  • Tuesday – team training  (delivered by team coaches plus DOF and DOC)
  • Thursday – team training  (delivered by team coaches)

 “The focal point of this programme is on a player’s individual technical ability which plays a critical part in the development of young footballers,” said de Jong. “Our club has a proud history of developing our own players for the first teams for both men and women. The promotion of our Women’s 1st team to the Premier League this season is a testament to this. We are also striving to produce players that not only represent Ellerslie AFC but aspire to play at higher levels beyond the club.”

The cost of these additional sessions through the 20 week period are included in a one-off payment of $150.00, loaded to the player’s ClubHub account on selection into a Red team. Payment of this fee is required no later than 30th April, 2020. Non-payment following this date may jeopardise the place of the player in their respective Red team.
