Boys Skill Acquisition Program (SAP)

The objective of the Boys SAP is to provide a participation-based program that compliments existing club-based training. The program, delivered by qualified hand-selected staff, will teach participants functional game skills and provide them with the necessary technical tools to play the game at the highest possible level in years to come.

The desired outcome for the Boys SAP is that many players will learn the tools that may see them progress into the Boys TSP and WA State squads.
