The WUAFC Skills Centre is an open development programme for registered and non-registered players in an enjoyable environment that maximizes player development. It provides an aligned, co-ordinated and holistic approach to Junior footballers aged 6-13 years old, helping them to develop their football skills, physical fitness, team play and over all wellbeing. 

It offers a comprehensive training program that covers all aspects of the game, from dribbling, passing, shooting, ball control, tactical awareness, and physical conditioning. 

Our coaches will assist players to improve their skills and teach them more about the game to assist in reaching their full potential. 

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced player, the Skills Centre provides a supportive and challenging environment that will help your child improve their game and build their development of the game. With a focus on individualised attention and personalised coaching, the centre is the ideal place for anyone looking to develop their football skills to the next level.
