Murray United’s Skill Acquisition Program (SAP) squad enjoyed a gala day at Melbourne’s State Football Centre this month.
More than 50 teams ranging from under nine to under 12 boys and girls were involved in the two-day event.
The emphasis of the day was to allow players to apply the skills they had learnt during the program and provided an opportunity for coaches to assess how the players had improved.
Murray United SAP Coordinator Adam Carty was delighted with the efforts of the clubs coaches, players and parents at the event.
“The technical quality of football for players at these ages is undoubtedly on the rise and to present players with the opportunity to practice the skills picked up from training cannot be underestimated,” he said.
Coaches and players will commence skill development ahead of the next gala day in the coming weeks.
