Forest Rangers FC Development Squad
The Development Squad is a graded selection process program which provide opportunities for 8-14-year old players to benefit from advanced coaching and to develop within the Forest Rangers FC player pathway.
Technical training or ‘having a ball at your feet’ is the most important concept for the development of young football players. At Forest Rangers FC, we consider player development over the “winning at all cost” mentality is paramount to young player development. We shall emphasise the technical part of football to ensure that the young footballer develops technically.
Trials are held every year in October/November for players to join the program the following season. These trials are open to male and female players.
In our selection process the players are evaluated on a number of key area’s. These are:
Each player must trial for their position every year. This process ensures that each player is given equal opportunity to be involved in the Development Squad program.
The program is at no extra cost the players.
Each team is allocated a Coach, Assistant Coach and Manager which means the coach/player ratio is the best in the area. This increases the players development and also at a faster rate compared to other similar programs.
The teams train two nights a week and plays games on Saturday with in the SGFA and also plays a second training game each fortnight against other teams.
