Registrations are now open for the 2016 Macca’s Next Step Program to be held at Football Park and Alberton Oval from Tuesday October 4 to Thursday October 6.

Introduced in 2010, the Macca’s Next Step program offers boys and girls aged between five and 15 the opportunity to hone their skills while experiencing state-of-the-art facilities at South Australia’s two AFL clubs.

Players are involved in coaching clinics and modified matches while also being exposed to the training facilities used by Power players (Alberton) and Crows players (Football Park).

The program is broken into three age-groups to cater for children of differing interest and ability.

For those aged between five and eight, two three-hour sessions are on offer at Alberton Oval on Tuesday October 4, starting at 9am and 1pm.

A two-day program is offered for the other age-groups – children aged between nine and 15.

The first day – Wednesday October 5 – will be at Football Park while the second day – Thursday October 6 – will be at Alberton Oval.

An elite training session is involved in these programs as well as a specialist Kicking Academy.

AFL Combine testing will be provided for those in the eldest age bracket while participants can also learn about careers in the football industry as well as being involved in a leadership workshop.

Players of all ages will receive a personalised Next Step guernsey, a family pass to the 2016 SANFL Grand Final and a Next Step promotional pack.
They will also have the opportunity to be coached by current SANFL players.
