The TKU Skills Centre provide an aligned, co-ordinated approach to junior footballers, aged 9-12 years, wishing to access a higher level of provision.
Its main aim is to provide a structured programme for players, in an enjoyable environment that maximises player development.

It is highly likely that the game in the future will be quicker, more technical and tactical, and the demands on our younger players will be elevated.
Through a planned, consistent approach to training, based around principles of Long Term Player Development, TKU Skills Centre will provide a perfect start for players wishing to reach the highest level.

Players taking part in the Skill Centre will follow the recently launched Skills Centre curriculum, designed by NZ Football, focusing on striking the ball (passing, shooting etc), 1v1, receiving the ball, travelling with the ball (running and dribbling) plus 1v1 defending.
At this programme, players will need to be highly motivated and dedicated to football and want to learn and practice to a high level.

All sessions will be held at Keith Hay Park, and run for 1 hour.
Registrations are now open and places are strictly limited.
Fees are $70.00 and club members can book these on line through ClubHub by simply logging on to your account and selecting ‘Tasks’ and ‘Make a purchase or booking’.
No refunds will be given for missed sessions.
Please note that your booking is only secured with payment.
