OFC’s football division supports the continuous development of the young players of the region through a comprehensive range of programmes designed for young players age 6-12 years.
The programmes provide children with the opportunity to experience regular, organised football activities with qualified coaches and/or game day leaders based on the following principles:
All activities should ‘look like football
The children need to experience both training and ‘game days’
Everyone should have an equal opportunity to participate
The focus is developing individuals rather than building a team
The activities should emphasise fun, playfulness and skill development
Designed in conjunction with the OFC Social Responsibility Department, the programmes provide children with the opportunity to experience regular, organised football activities, enabling them to establish the foundation for a healthy lifestyle and gain positive personal experiences while developing their football skills.
All activities are conducted with certified coaches and/or game day leaders.
The programmes include
Football Festival packs
Football Development Centres
OFC Skills Challenge Awards
