NZF National Player Development Framework
9th to 12th Grade MINI FOOTBALL 2012
Mini Football is the name given under the NZF National Player Development Framework for the new
football structure and player development for players in grades 9 to 12 years.
It follows First Kicks (5-6 years) Fun Football (7, 8, 9 years) and is followed by Youth Football (13-15years), Youth Football (16-19 years), Senior Football (20-23 years), Senior Football (24+ years).
The National Development framework maybe viewed on the PAFC website or NZF website. The programme reflects the latest academic research and best practice from a number of leading football nations.
First Kicks is about starting football and discovery, and learning basic skills. Fun Football is about developing on that foundation. Both programmes are aimed to set foundations of technical excellence in fun motivating environments.
Mini Football introduces more structured learning, emphasises developing individual skills and basic group tactics.
