Junior Devils Academy

The Launceston City FC Junior Devils Academy is for players aged 8 to 12 and is open to all players in the Northern Tasmania region meaning even if you don’t play for Launceston City Devils you are still welcome to attend.

Our Junior Devils Academy is run by appropriately qualified coaches focusing on the four core skills as outlined in Skills Acquisition Phase of the Football Australia National Curriculum.

Each week the sessions focus on a different core skill:

  • 1v1 – How to take on and beat a player whether attacking or defending in varying situations.
  • First Touch – Controlling the ball with all legal parts of the body and understanding how a good first touch can set you up for that next play or help you get out of danger.
  • Running with the Ball – Learning how to dribble and control the ball in open and confined spaces.
  • Striking the Ball – All forms of kicking whether it be short passing, long passing, shooting or crossing.
