      Parents testimonial

      "I would strongly recommend SLD to anyone! They are not only professional in what they do but they are open to listen, encourage and guide. As result they have been increasingly understanding with our family needs: when my son was off due to a knee injury they kept in contact with me and supported me with suggestions without pushing Nelson into any sort of extra stress.

      Thank you Rob and George and all the staff for your continued support, we will miss you when we go! 

      You have definitely contributed to making my son not just a better player but also growing in him a sense of self respect really needed in life, thank you so much!"  


       Ileana Bianchi, SLD Parent.


      "SLD provides an extra level of training that really maximises the skills and gamesmanship learnt at your football club. They do this is an enjoyable but productive way, really focusing all participants."    


      SLD Parent


      Our son started with SLD in January 2016 age 7 and still loves it now that he’s in year 6. As parents, we’ve appreciated SLD as it’s not just about kicking the ball around. There is focus on skills and technique, strategy, team play, positioning etc, and the sessions are long enough to really get into it. The coaches get to know the boys well and work with them on their development. They get to play games against other teams quite regularly which is fun and competitive and a good measure of improvement over time. More recently, our daughter (yr 4) has started football at the Monday sessions with the girls and is thoroughly enjoying that. SLD is a great way to do age-appropriate and focused, technical football training that is a lot of fun.
