Marlborough Football NZF Skills Centres

The Marlborough Football NZF Skills Centre's operate all year round during school terms. 

The New Zealand Football Skills Centres provide an aligned, co-ordinated approach to junior footballers, aged 7-12 years, wishing to access a higher level of provision. Its main aim is to provide a structured programme for players, in an enjoyable environment that maximises player development.

It is highly likely that the game in the future will be quicker, more technical and tactical, and the demands on our younger players will be elevated. Through a planned, consistent approach to training, based around principles of Long Term Player Development, NZF Skills Centres will provide a perfect start for players wishing to reach the highest level.
