AIM OF THE PROGRAM
To introduce players to the Northern Knights Football Club – Region Academy.
To introduce and implement a structured skill development program.
To focus on continual individual improvement.
To provide a healthy, disciplined Squad atmosphere.
To identify players for inclusion in the Northern Knights TAC Cup Summer Training Squad for Season 2019.
It is anticipated that the aim will be achieved by the following methods:
By selecting the perceived best players, through consultation with Northern Knights Talent ID Staff and naming them in our Max Richardson Squad (this list can be added to, or deleted from as the need arises).
By conducting a training program that will culminate in the Northern Knights Max Richardson Squad playing Trial Games against other TAC Cup Regions with a view of making selections of suitably talented players to be invited to the 2018/19 Northern Knights Under 18 Summer Training Squad.
By introducing and exposing players to basic fundamental football skills and disciplines, that they might well be expected to undertake if they were successful in being selected in future Northern Knights Squads.
