Advanced Player Development Program (APD)
Our APD Program is a 6-session player development program designed for Roselea FC players (12 -18 yrs) who demonstrate the ability, commitment, and aspiration to compete well at Division 1 club-level competition. The APD program engages a high-level professional coach to lead our players in stretching and extending themselves to higher skill levels in tactical and technical football.
The 2023 APD Program will be led by head-coach Lea Zulo. Lea is a professional coach who holds a FA C License and is currently actively working towards an AFC Futsal License. She is professionally employed as Head Coach for Sydney Rangers FC in the men’s competition in Football Canterbury. Lea has played up to WNPL level and still plays in our local Women’s Premier League for Putney Rangers, where she is also Asst Director, Women’s Football. Lea will lead all our APD players through an exciting, challenging and rewarding APD program.
Sessions will be conducted on Monday nights – at either Harold West or Roselea Oval - with the younger group running 6.00 - 7.00pm and the older group 7.15 - 8.15pm (times may vary slightly once formed). APD Squad sizes will be in the range of 12 -18 players. Selection sessions may be used if there are greater nominations then can be accommodated in the program.
