Papamoa FC players who are registered within the FC Tauranga Moana SKC (Skill Centre Programme),  www.fctm.co.nz/tane/skills-centre will look to be grouped together(should they wish) so that the training received during the SKC sessions can implementated on game days.

Subject to numbers we will look to have separate 9th and 10th grade SKC squads.

If we have insufficent numbers for separate squads, we will make a combined squad of 9th and 10th grade which plays in the 10th grade competition. Squad size will be 10 or 11 players(as the game is 7v7 in this age group)

Without knowing numbers within the SKC programme it is hard to quantify how many teams we will run but team allocation will occur(as priority) on date of registration into the FCTM programme

Selection of these SKC teams will be made immediately after the start of the Skilll Centre programme.
