  • Groups for all players, streamed to train players within their own experience level
  • Training based around the SK philosophy – developing individual players through the SK style of play
  • Weekend matches sporadically through the season – played on non-JFC days so as not to disrupt club commitments
  • Tournaments for all players – every player is invited to at least one tournament during the season at their level
  • “Your team comes first” philosophy – the SK Development Centre is there to work with clubs, so in the rare event of a clash, the JFC takes priority!
