- Provide appropriate competition
- Provide appropriate training to game ratio
- Encourage creative freedom in training & in games
- Create free player movement within age groups to ensure the top players can play up and be challenged
- Reduce fear of failure by eliminating the pressure of winning games with more emphasis on individual player development

- Appropriate travel to play time ratio
- Clubs will participate in one game per week
- Game formats will be 7 v 7
- Emphasis on players making decisions on the field by coaches limiting their coaching points to natural stoppages & ensuring the players learn to solve some problems on their own
