MFA Association Development Program (ADP)
The Macarthur Region’s Football Skills Acquisition Program
As you might be aware, the MFA have applied for and been granted a License for another Skills Acquisition Program. This Program will now give the young male and female footballers in the Macarthur region, a clear development pathway from U9 to U16 (male) and U9 to U17 (female) as of 2018.
This initiative was implemented based on the projected growth in the region and to provide more opportunities for young footballers to develop their talent with like-minded players.
