PAPAMOA FC Junior Boys & Girls (2012 TO 2015)

Junior football is dedicated to the next level of the footballing pathway from the Fun Football grades. 

Research has identified that the golden age of learning & development is between the ages of 9 and 12 years.  So with that in mind, we concentrate on providing a Junior Framework that is a consistent and coordinated approach to the development of junior players.  Its main aim is to provide all junior players with high quality Football experiences that increase passion for the game. Through the Junior Framework players will experience age appropriate games and coaching.
