2021 SAP (Skills Acquisition Phase) Training

Expressions of Interest are Open for the

Bendigo City FC SAP (Skills Acquisition Phase) Training program in 2021. The program is endorsed by Football Victoria & provides young players (10-12yrs) with the technical training required to prepare them for NPL Football. It is the perfect program for aspirational young players looking to play NPL.

They will still play with their local community club but train on a weekly basis with our professional coaching staff & take part in Football Victoria SAP Gala Days throughout the year. The program will be coached by FAB SONCIN (FFA Pro Licence) with the support of the wider BCFC Coaching Staff. It will commence in Feb 2021.

Numbers will be limited. We are currently accepting EOI’s (Expression Of Interest) for players wanting to be part of the program. Go to the link below & register your interest for our SAP program in 2021! https://www.Trybooking.com/BNEIY
