About
An age and stage related program that places players into our Performance Player Pathway. The Phoenix Program has shifted over the past two seasons with a renewed focus on the development of young players and coaches. With a player centred approach, we are better able to address the needs of young players with greater efficiency and effectiveness. We provide a Long-Term Player Development inspired program that will include a holistic curriculum and plan with purposeful training and growth opportunities for the passionate player and coach.

Program Entry
It is fundamental & vital that parents and athletes recognize the high level of commitment required to be Phoenix player.  There is a selection and placement process that includes an independent group of assessors working alongside the coaching staff to ensure the process is athlete centred. Additionally, in-season assessments as well as in season coaches reports will be key criteria in the placement process.  The Technical Department will be involved in all selections & placements to ensure the best interest of the player and the SPDSA.  Our goal is that every athlete is placed in the most appropriate environment based on a holistic four corner approach - Technical, Physical, Mental, and Social aspects.

Coaching
Qualified volunteer coaches are appointed on a yearly basis to lead the team and are assisted and supported throughout the season by the SPDSA Technical Department.

  • U13 and U14 program - Qualified Technical Leads are appointed to deliver, manage, and lead the program assisted and supported by volunteer development coaches
  • U15 - U18 program - Volunteer Coaches lead the program, however are given support of the SPDSA Technical staff on an ongoing basis throughout the season

The best qualities of a coach for this stage of player are
