Development Program

Peakhurst United FC Development Program is a 20-week football development program giving all players the opportunity to further develop and improve their skills and footballing ability.

Registration day (Early bird) – Sunday 7th March 2021 – 1pm to 4pm at Peakhurst Park.

The Peakhurst United FC Development Program will begin on Sunday 21 March and Monday 22 March 2021 and will run for approx. 5 months until Monday August 2 2021. Additional dates have also been scheduled for training sessions cancelled due to wet weather. Contingent dates are extended to Monday 23 August 2021.

The 4 core principles of junior development within the skill acquisition phase will be taught to our players – to ensure all players develop in all aspects and have a better technical understanding of football.

Training nights will consist of the following development:

1 v 1 – Attacking and Defending

First Touch – Controlling and moving the ball to your advantage

Striking the ball – Correct passing and shooting techniques

Running with the ball – Dribbling at speed and accurately passing while moving


Peakhurst United FC will be the first club in the Football St George area, to offer a player evaluation profile for each player who attends our development program. The assessment will be undertaken by the experienced senior coaching staff at the start of the program and at the end of the program – parents will be invited to come and meet the coaches to discuss their child’s development progression.

Players will receive a Development squad training jersey, training shorts and socks as part of their registration. They are to wear this kit at each training session
