Kingston Twin Ovals

Do you want to be part of Football Federation Tasmania’s (FFT’s) SAP Festival held Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th December 2018? 
This tournament is only open to FFT licensed Skill Acquisition Programs (SAP), and will be held at the Twin Ovals in Kingston. 

OPEN TO BOYS & GIRLS BORN 2006, 2007, 2008 AND GIRLS BORN 2005.


Taroona FC SKiLLS is a licensed SAP program and once again intends to field several teams in the Festival, which gives our young footballers an opportunity to put into practice the skills learned during the program.


To be part of the tournament, players need to:


  • Register for TFC Skills for at least one session per week, visit programs here.

  • Be available on the weekend of 15 and 16 December.

  • Complete the Expression of Interest form by 15 November, teams will be notified by 1 December.
    NOTE: there is a $20 nomination fee.


The teams for the SAP Festival will be selected by the TFC SKiLLS coaches and the club Technical Director. Selection will be based on:


  • Willingness to learn and be coached – being part of the program means being prepared to challenge yourself, try new things and be prepared to make mistakes – that’s how you grow! The program is about extending players to reach their football potential, in an environment that is safe and encouraging.

  • Behaviour – showing respect for your coaches and your team mates is very important. This means listening to what your coach says and doing your best to do what the coach is asking you to do. It also means supporting your team mates and encouraging them to try new things.

  • Football ability – players need to demonstrate improvement in the four core skills – running with the ball, 1v1, first touch and striking the ball.

  • Attendance at TFC Skills sessions – this means showing up to each session you’re registered for, on time, in the right gear, ready to train at the start time.

Games for Under 10's and Under 12's will be held on Saturday 15th of December.  
All games for Under 11's and Junior Youth Girls will be held on Sunday 16th of December.
